Compare these bits of news.
First, from just before the pandemic:
Black and Hispanic unemployment is at a record low
The jobless rate for Hispanics hit a record low of 3.9% in September, while African Americans maintained its lowest rate ever, 5.5%.
Second, after Biden signed the American Rescue Plan:
U.S. Added 266,000 Jobs Last Month—Far Worse Than Expected, As 9.8 Million Americans Remain Unemployed
April’s report also continued to show stark differences in unemployment by race, with minority groups such as Black Americans and Hispanics facing above-average unemployment rates of 9.7% and 7.9%, respectively.
The Left is very good at playing the long game.
If you teach minority kids math, they will understand things like numbers and percents and how 5.5% unemployment under a Republican means more jobs for Black people than 9.7% unemployment under a Democrat.
But if they teach them that there is no right answer, math is racist, and critical race theory, all they will know is that the reason they are poor is white privilege and systemic racism.
You can’t have the people that your policies harm be able to comprehend or think critically about the outcomes of those policies.
There is a method to their madness.
One thought on “This is why the Left doesn’t want to teach minority kids math”
Democrat Strategies have never changed.
The Good Ole Boy Racist Klan Democrats never wanted blacks or even poor whites to be educated. Ignorant and poor voters are their base, and they will do anything to expand their base.
The only difference in their strategy and goals for minority education is they have a veneer of respectability from their credentialed professional liberal advanced degree supporters and a complicit teachers union to enable the un-education and mis-education of poor whites and blacks.
One hundred years later, their goals have never changed, only their tactics.
