Google Sponsored MIT Conference: Math Is Racist, Reparations the Solution
By Corinne Weaver | January 10, 2019 12:47 PM EST

Science and technology shouldn’t have to play into identity politics espoused by the left. But at MIT, numbers are racist.

The Data for Black Lives Conference, set to take place on January 11 in Cambridge, Massachusetts, is addressing issues in technology that they feel pertain to racism in the United States. Run by Yeshimabeit Milner, former campaign director for the Soros-funded Color of Change, the group Data for Black Lives claims that it is studying how to use data analytics in order to combat racism. One of the topics in the conference to be addressed is how “mathematics classrooms are breeding grounds for racialized myths of superiority and deficiency.”

The title of that particular segment is, “Rising Above the Gathering Storm: Education, Justice and Mathematics.” In the description, Data for Black Lives goes after math in a special way (what did addition and subtraction ever to do you?), saying that mathematical proficiency is a “matter of life and death.”

They do realize that a great deal of math was discovered by non-white people long before Europe became any kind of serious power in the world?
