Snapped, Crackled and Popped
Buckle up buttercups because we're about to take a trip down the rabbit hole where some of the alt-leftists are now proudly proclaiming to the world that math is racist, police of any color are racist and even your breakfast cereal is racist! So hold on kids and step away from that bowl of Corn Pops, Rice Krispies and Eggo Waffles too and let's see what nonsense is being cooked up for us in the halls of academia of the half-baked ovens in the kitchens of Kelloggs!
The American left and the Democratic Party seem to be doing their level best to destroy the psyche of people of color in a continuing propaganda campaign to make their entire existence seem like an impossible uphill struggle against the mostly imaginary obstacle they call white privilege.
The most consistent way out of poverty for anyone of any color is to work hard, get the best education possible and reliance on the American economic system that has freed tens of millions from economic servitude. Why else would they try to convince anyone that the math being taught in school is somehow racist? It doesn't make any sense and in fact it is, flatly absurd. But then again I often find that liberal arguments based on emotion and devoid of any real foundation fall into this same indefensible column. Despite the overwhelming ignorance of such a claim, University of Illinois Math Professor Rochelle Guiterrez is teaching exactly that.
Gutierrez wrote in a literary compilation titled, ‘Building Support for Scholarly Practices in Mathematics Methods’, about how racist mathematics course work is and how a disproportionate percentage of math teachers are white and how the practice itself 'operates as whiteness.'
Two, four, six, eight it must be time to denigrate white people, white people, white people.
Minorities “have experienced micro-aggressions from participating in math class”, she claims. “If one is not viewed as mathematical, there will always be a sense of inferiority that can be summoned.” She then asks, “Are we really that smart just because we do mathematics?” Hey lady I can assure you a lot of people feel inferior in math class and it has exactly zero to do with the color of their skin. I’m pretty white and I was inferior a whole lot in math classes to those sitting around me.
Well, if going by Gutierrez's leftist logic is any indication then I have to question just how smart someone actually has to be to do mathematics; after all she is a university math instructor. Now let me tell you something my friends, I know quite clearly people of any color can work hard, learn math or science or anything else and are quite capable to think abstractly. NASA's Katherine Johnson is an African American woman whose mathematical prowess was so immense that when NASA moved their systems over onto computers, it was Johnson's mathematical expertise they used to check the computers computations. Her work was also of critical importance for the Apollo program that included the first flights to the moon. Which just goes to prove that math is an equal opportunity discipline that is available for any of us to pursue no matter what color you may have been born. Math is math and math doesn't discriminate.
I cannot believe Ms. Guiterrez didn’t call numbers misogynistic too.
The American left loves to pretend like they're the true defenders of our country's people of color, and gender and ethnicity but if the left truly were the defenders of minorities then why do they try as hard as they can to disarm the law abiding people in these communities making them unable to properly defend themselves and then stigmatize the police officers of all colors who bravely work in the toughest neighborhoods in America every day risking their lives in order to help keep these same people of color safe from rampant crime? The alt-left does not care about those things most days; they only care about feeding a narrative of oppression and victimization that will keep them in power, in your paycheck and in your way.
But guess what folks? It isn't working any longer and that's why so many are now former Democrats. They are the people that realized they were getting swindled and walked over to vote for President Donald Trump. Is he perfect? No, of course not but he is a guy fighting for Americans, all of them, no matter what kind of sleazy smear job some are trying to pull most people can see through the filth.
And now for the most horrible outrage you could possibly imagine, racist breakfast cereal. That’s right Corn Pops (which are yellow) had a box with a bunch of cartoon Pops doing a variety of things and just one was a little darker, the janitor. Kellogg's has now officially apologized for only having one brown corn pop on the cereal box and for making it a janitor! A janitor! Within just 5 short hours of Kellogg's being made aware of this heinous portrayal of a brown pop being a janitor they tweeted this, “Kellogg is committed to diversity & inclusion. We did not intend to offend — we apologize.” And spokesperson Kris Charles told USA Today that, “We take feedback very seriously, and it was never our intention to offend anyone. We apologize sincerely.”
So let's think about this for just a minute here. Would there have been any outrage if the Corn Pop was whiter than all of the other Corn Pops? Why is it offensive to portray a cartoon cereal janitor as a darker corn pop or even as a person of color? Isn't there dignity and honor in working hard for a living cleaning and maintaining offices, factories and hospitals to keep us all healthy and safe?
Let me tell you something, here at the Steve Gruber Show we stand proudly with all working people. We don’t care about where you came from or what color you are. We don’t care who you love or worship. We stand with you because you get up and go to work every day and that makes you part of the solution to getting this country where it needs to go. So for all the janitors, and nurses and tow truck drivers and painters and doctors and teachers and electricians, thank you for everything you do every day. Because America is a team sport and it is high time we start thinking about that again and remembering our American Privilege.
