University of Hawaii Professor Demands White Men Quit Their Jobs

A University of Hawaii math professor has urged every white man to quit their job or take a demotion and deemed those who disagree with her proposition as racist, sexist and transphobic.

Piper Harron, an assistant professor at the University of Hawaii who holds a PhD degree in mathematics from Princeton University, has penned an article for the American Mathematical Society (AMS) blog, calling on white men to “Get Out The Way”.

“Not to alarm you, but I probably want you to quit your job, or at least take a demotion,” Harron wrote, adding that “Statistically speaking, you are probably taking up room that should go to someone else.”

“If you are a white cis man (meaning you identify as male and you were assigned male at birth) you almost certainly should resign from your position of power,” the professor added.

Harron went on to suggest that if quitting is “too difficult”, white men should “at least get off your hiring committee your curriculum committee, and make sure you’re replaced by a woman of color or trans person.”

Comments

Proof that getting a mathematics PhD only requires a knowledge of rational numbers, not the expression of rational thoughts.

Proof that you can’t fix stupid. What a living monument to
the vapid state of US “higher”education.

Hell, I will quit “my position of power” as soon as she sets up an account to give me a check every month at least as big as I get now. Until then make your own way sorry liberal b*@#H. 😉

Lady instead of worrying about what others are doing why don’t you get your thesis in on time?

Attention U of Hawaii teachers, and professors – well, the white ones.
This is what your colleague Piper Harron thinks of you.
She doesn’t like or respect you because of the color of your skin.
She wants you to lose your job because of the color of your skin.
Be sure to say hi to her in the faculty dining room.

The liberals need to be institutionalized.

Case in point: a course designed to teach high school kids that mathematics, as taught in the Western world, is a “dehumanizing tool” that has been used to “trick indigenous peoples out of land and property.”

Hit and Run:

The course was designed by Teach for America and is offered through EdX, according to Campus Reform. It presupposes that math could be made more interesting for students if it was infused with socially relevant themes. That’s not a terrible assumption – maybe young people would like math better if it was being taught in a language they understood. (If Olivia eats 10 pieces of avocado toast every day, how long will it be until she can afford to move out of her parent’s house? That sort of thing.)

But Teach for America thinks that language is “social justice,” and has designed a course that makes some startling claims about math.

“In western mathematics, our ways of knowing include formalized reasoning or proof, decontextualization, and algorithmic thinking, leaving little room for those having non-western mathematical skills and thinking processes,” the training course clai
