Skip to comments.Orwellian: Teacher Blames 'Western Imperialism,' 'Colonization' for Concept of 2+2=4
Posted on 07/08/2020 7:11:50 PM PDT by rickmichaels
Brittany Marshall, a self-described teacher and Ph.D. student, took to Twitter this past weekend to voice her displeasure about the concept of 2+2=4, saying the idea of the simple math equation is merely cultural.
1984 called. It wants Room 101 back.
Nope the idea of 2+2 equaling 4 is cultural and because of western imperialism/colonization, we think of it as the only way of knowing, wrote Marshall. Never mind that the Arabic numeral system we use is not, you know, Western.
Marshall goes by the pronouns she/her and describes herself on Twitter as a teacher, scholar, social justice change agent, Chicagoan, PhD student, architecture enthusiast, wannabe math person, BLM always
Just the kind of person you want teaching your kids, right?
Her Twitter and LinkedIn accounts have been set to private, but a bio included in a directory of Rutgers Ph.D. candidates says that her area of specialization is Mathematics Education.

Boy is there gonna be a reckoning.
I wonder if they are probing to see just how stupid their base is and what they can get away with.
Rational, logical thinking is White oppression.
Arithmetic and algebra are White oppression.
Everyone knows that 3+1=4.
If 2 + 2 doesn’t equal 4, then what does it equal?
They will reap the whirlwind.
Indeed. God (who created the natural numbers) is not to be mocked!
“Ph.D’ aka Pile Higher and Deeper.
She probably thinks pies are square.
It equals a retarded civilization.
Another man pretending to be a woman?
Oppression you racist bigot.
People that spout this **** dont realize they are cutting the ground from beneath their feet. If there are no absolutes in nature then there can be no victim because literally We cannot know anything. If her concept is correct then neither she or I could ever know.
Her college specialty......MATH EDUCATION
Scroll down. Same Ms. Marshall?
Wait....I thought it was 4 + 0 =4. I’m so confused.
Didn’t Star Trek TNG do an episode about this?
I think with social media so prevalent that people look for ANY way to get attention.
It’s like a drama whore potluck 24/7.
