Math is Western imperialism and colonization

A picture is worth a thousand words here:

Afro math

There are so many things I could say about this.  Making a witty comparison with Alan Sokal’s paper “Transgressing the Boundaries: Toward a Transformative Hermeneutics of Quantum Gravity” is tempting.  I also could poke fun at the snippiness and obvious misinformation.  Alternatively, I could leave it with my usual res ipse loquitur.

Nah, I’ll play it straight this time.  Brittany Marshall certainly did get out of first grade knowing the correct answer for what 2+2 is.  What happened since then?  She got ideologically conditioned.  Now she believes that math is not universal, but instead it’s a social construct.  Worse, math is some sinister thing imposed because of “western imperialism/colonization”.

I’ll bet dollars to donuts that she got brainwashed with cultural Marxism in college.  If so, then this was fraud, and the school owes her a refund.  College is for knowledge, not to make the students confused about very basic arithmetic.  Nor is it to give them bad attitudes which will make it difficult for them to get along on the job or other areas of daily life.
