Is this really science?

I mean it's pretty funny. Somebody arguing that mathematical symbols promote 'whiteness' while discussing algebra is utterly ironic. For those that don't know algebra is al-jabr from the book "Ilm al-jabr wa'l-muḳābala" by Muhammad ibn Musa al-Khwarizmi. Even more fun, the latinization of his name was Algoritmi. And that's where the word algorithm comes from. And of course there are the numerals themselves. 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6.. They're called Arabic numerals for a reason. The Mideast used to be the intellectual capital of the world. Then something happened. Whatever that something may be, eventually social values - in this case driven by religion - began to be seen as superior to knowledge. That has happened to numerous civilizations throughout time, and it always results in the same thing. Not something we ought want to repeat.

So again, this is certainly entertaining... but science?

In short, Islam happened. Of course, these days Islamic "scholars" will claim everything - including science - was invented by Mohammad. Go figure.

Fuck Islam.Those fuckers are not intelligent enough to be a threat to us.

It's the Jews who are behind all this.They play those Muzzie bastards like a fiddle

Arabic numerals were invented by the Indians not the Arabs. You can blame Alexander the Great for that fuckup. This misnomre is in the process of being rectified by historians. Furthermore, the Middle-East "as the intellectual capitol of the world" is pure fiction. This honor belonged to Greece and the evidence is written all around you. It's the reason why Western nations became powerful and the Middle-East is still a backwards shit hole.

The group that gets credit for naming something are generally those that successfully bring it to the most people. A snarky 'food historian' might call tempura is a Portuguese dish, or Champagne an English drink. The difference is that these things came to worldwide appreciation under Japanese and French adoption and so they earned 'naming rights.'

You're definitely right that Greece was also the intellectual center of the world for many centuries and translating and discovering lost knowledge of the Greeks played a huge role in the Islamic Golden Age era. Science then, and always, has been built on the shoulders of those that come before us, as those that come after us will build upon what we discover. The open exchange of ideas and knowledge is something that's easy to take for granted now, but knowledge used to be something restricted to a privileged few and humanity suffered for that for thousands of years.

Also our system of peer review and awarding of doctorates/Ph.D's came from the Islamic world.

What happened? Simple. Science, mathematics etc. progressed far enough that they began to make it possible to test the statements made by religions. And when faced with a choice between reason and faith, they (as a culture at large) chose faith.

Math and science are definitely racist.

They prove that not all things are equal.

Eyes are racsists too because they let you see things that are not equal.

It is racist. Their genes make them black and stupid.

Math is hard. Playing the race card is easy. She is stupid and lazy.

She also believes that evaluations for math proficiency perpetuates discrimination against minority students, if they do worse than their white counterparts.

Blame anything but the room temperature IQs.

To be fair, expecting people-who-are-marginalized-for-a-reason to perform at white levels actually IS unrealistic.

Marginalized my arse.

Math proficiency in africa vs math proficiency in east asia should explain everything and proof the race/iq theory is all due to genetics.

Maths requires mathematical proof, where is her mathematical proof?

Her current research projects focus upon: developing in pre-service teachers the knowledge and disposition to teach powerful mathematics to urban students; the roles of uncertainty, tensions, and "Nepantla" in teaching; and the political knowledge (and forms of creative insubordination) that mathematics teachers need to effectively teach in an era of high-stakes education.

We need to get rid of the entire academic discipline of Education and start over. Whenever I see someone with a PhD in Education or a D.Ed. I just assume they are retards who most likely think of themselves as very intelligent.

It is truly frightening to see her degrees are from Stanford and Chicago. Those are two very good schools. One wonders if she is well below the actual intelligence for their students but was carried through because of how wonderful it was to have a Chicana getting a degree there.

Wait one fucking minute why do Asians kick ass at math then and Indians! If it's for white people and language is the fucking issues shouldn't indians and Chinese be doing worse as well! What the actual fuck.

"Arabic" numerals were indeed invented in India and Alexander the Great's conquests fucked this detail up. So yes, you should not be surprised that Indians are good at math and writing algorithms... while Arabs are among the lowest IQ populations in the world.

Because the lazy and dumb would rather make nonsensical excuse rather than actually putting an effort to get out of govt gibs.

The blacks who work hard can go quite far in life, and they fucking hate niggers. Being a nigger is like part of a culture, where you commit violence, be lazy, and being unproductive in general. There are non-black who subscribe to nigger culture as well. Like all of those thugs who score the lowest and skip the most classes.

The problem is that the leftard worship nigger culture. From gibs to light prison sentence which promotes nigger behavior.

Asians and Indians are obviously white and enjoy white mathematical privilege.
