“On many levels, mathematics itself operates as Whiteness,” she argues with complete sincerity, according to Campus Reform. “Who gets credit for doing and developing mathematics, who is capable in mathematics, and who is seen as part of the mathematical community is generally viewed as White.”
Wow, just wow!

Of course she's going to say this... that's what she was paid to find.

https://education.illinois.edu/faculty/rg1
Dr. Gutierrez' scholarship focuses on equity issues in mathematics education, paying particular attention to how race, class, and language affect teaching and learning. Through in-depth analyses of effective teaching/learning communities and longitudinal studies of developing and practicing teachers, her work challenges deficit views of students who are Latin@/x, Black, and/or American Indian and suggests that mathematics teachers need to be prepared with much more than just content knowledge, pedagogical knowledge, or knowledge of diverse students if they are going to be successful. 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.

Keeping the dullards dull is working for them.
The left lies about everything. Truth is a liberal value, and truth is a conservative value, but it has never been a left-wing value. People on the left say whatever advances their immediate agenda. Power is their moral lodestar; therefore, truth is always subservient to it. - Dennis Prager

I have a slightly different take. I think that there is a an element of the "15 seconds of fame" in this one. In a crowded field of Liberal attention seekers, it is becoming more and more difficult to get a glimmer of the spotlight. So, it would seem, that they are trying to out-Liberal one another, to see who can come up with the most outrageous statements with the thinnest line back to any reality.

Just when you think that the last Liberal "philosopher" has come up with the most bizarre collection of unwarranted conclusions, another one steps forward and says "hold my beer." :biggrinjester:

So... Asians are now white people?

Why not, Hispanics are often lumped in with whites when it fits the narrative... I think for this purpose and article, anyone not specifically black- is white.

Let's see, all those black mathematicians at NASA in the 60's (from the movie "Hidden Figures"), I guess they didn't exist. And 'algebra' and 'algorithm' both have arabic origins (from mathematician Al-Khwarizmi); so I guess arabs are white too to this 'professor' who apparently didn't pay much attention to the origins and history of her chosen field.....

Obviously, mentally ill professors are teaching, but those in charge choose to ignore it.

At what point do the mentally ill professors have to reach before they're gently guided into the arms of the folks in white coats and escorted to the rubber room?

NO. It promotes, the Arab Culture. The inventors of modern Algebra and Astronomy and Land and Sea Navigation tools.

This! ^^

But, of course, it's just easier to blame 'white folk' because that's the flavor of the month.

There are three elements of this "news" report that I find incredibly sad -- that someone can be a Math professor who apparently makes a living off of "research" monies applied to Progressive social / education theories, that the University she works for finds value in her endeavors and stands behind her, and that due to the "social justice" angle this makes front-page news. We live in treacherous times where "norms", morals, ethics, decency and common sense are not viewed as good and correct. The only correct things according to what we are fed as our daily ration of propaganda are those deemed correct by the Progressives to suit their ends. Treachery, indeed.
