Meritocracy is a ‘tool of whiteness,’ claims math professor

A math education professor at Brooklyn College contends in a recent academic article that “meritocracy” in math classes is a “tool of whiteness.” Laurie Rubel implicates both meritocracy and “color-blindness” as ideological precepts that hold back racial minorities from succeeding in math classes in an article for the peer-reviewed Journal of Urban Mathematics Education .

    Another bitch who needs a slap.
    Math is not racist. 2+2 is the same no matter what color you are.

    What the fuck is meritocracy?

    People always want people to do things without perception of colors but this woman wants people to point out the colors. So by saying don’t be racist she is trying to get people to be racist by pointing out race.

    I am so confused I now think 2+2=5 because I’m white and I said so.

      No more meritocracy in sports either. I played a little football but being slow and having no talent limited my career. I should be able to play pro, in fact, I may sue. . Participation prizes for all!

        I still don’t know what the fuck meritocracy is. Based on your post, I guess it’s the white version of affirmative action, in which case I never benefitted anyway.

          Meritocracy is good; it’s based on merit. If someone is good at something, they earn from it or advance.

    the antonym of meritocracy
    is brown-nosing.

    Meritocracy was discussed on The Five last night. It is complete 100% bullshit that it is racist! Merit has always been part of our lives educational and recreational. I guess all the Girl Scouts get all the badges now instead of having to EARN them! In my world you get what you earn/deserve and that’s all! I think that she is taking grading on the curve way too far!
