And she probably wants a job counting votes

A Black Lives Matter-supporting teacher...assert(ed) that 2+2 only = 4 because of “western imperialism.”

Brittany Marshall, who includes her pronouns in her bio, lists her occupation as “teacher, scholar, social justice change agent” and apparently is studying for a PhD at Rutgers.

I wonder what her GRE scores were.

Source of data
The chart shown above is the percentage of degrees in Math and Statistics granted to Black-American students as a percentage of all degrees granted in Math and Statistics.

This is stunning because Black high school graduates enter college at 60% of the rate of White high school graduates. If you take 13% and multiply by 60% you will see that Black graduates were OVER REPRESENTS in the field of Math and Statistics in the late 1990s.

Has math become more racist since 1995? Perhaps the students became dumber? Or perhaps the students less well prepared by their high schools? Maybe...and I am going way out on a limb here...maybe their teachers became dumber and lowered their expectations.
