"Math equity" is now a term trumped up by the SJW/PC crowd referring to the growing insistence among math educators that teaching mathematics in classrooms comes with inherently biased racist methodology that must be addressed.

Furthermore, the SJW/PC crowd in favor of "math equity" stresses the importance of social justice warrior issues such as race, diversity, and gender when it comes to mathematics education.

According to the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics, "“It (Math equity) requires mathematics teachers to reflect on their own identity, positions, and beliefs in regards to racist and sorting-based mechanisms. It involves noticing students, learning about the worlds they live in, and building mathematics that comes from these worlds. And finally, it involves engaging other educators in partnerships to build equity-oriented communities."

More about how math is racist can be found in the article linked below:

No, that is the dumbing down of people of color or whatever the math is supposed to be racist about.

Which it is not racist.

Math is just a benign thing.

Instead of encouraging people to learn math which will help them in the future on any job, they try to dumb down people.

I hope no one listens to these idiots.

But Math is hard! Of course it's wacist. Lets face it, the average SJW doesn't have the IQ to handle anything beyond 2nd grade arithmetic. Of course they throw out the race card, like they do for anything else that gets their little panties in a bunch.

My dog is better at math than a SJW

Why do all major in _____ Studies if they're so interested in math?

Wisconsin professor claims that the University of Wisconsin is pushing a race based diversity grading and professors inflate grades so that everyone scores well so that they don't have race grade inequities.

One beautiful thing about math, at least below the 300 level theoretical university stuff.

No interpretation. The answer is the answer. Race makes no difference whatsoever.
