The new normal is entering US society at a steady pace that to some may seem frightening. To most it is plain puzzling and to many infuriating.


In recent months, a non-profit foundation called Pathway released a six-part toolkit for fighting against racism. It doesn’t fight against it in any conventional way, but rather by claiming that mathematics is racist.


The toolkit “A Pathway to Equitable Math Instruction” is meant to help educators in grades 6-8. One of the main points it puts forward is that educators propagate “white supremacist culture”. They do that because they  “treat mistakes as problems by equating them with wrongness” in mathematics. Essentially they are proposing that an alternative math could be introduced, in which the wrong solution to a problem is just as acceptable as the correct one. According to this new tolerant and diverse concept, math should be taught through “storytelling circles, incorporating dance, music, song, call and response, and other cultural ways of communicating.” It reaches outside of math, too, as “requiring students to raise their hand before speaking can reinforce paternalism and powerhoarding, in addition to breaking the process of thinking, learning, and communicating.”


There is little surprise that no ‘MSM experts’ noticed that the toolkit itself is incredibly racist, constantly describing children of color as less capable than white children. It repeatedly claims that teaching minority kids the “right way” to do math meant reinforcing white supremacist culture. One could say that it was all a joke, or a scam, but the Gates Foundation has donated nearly $140 million to the groups behind Pathway.


Separately, Coca Cola is, apparently, forcing its employees to watch an online training made by Robin DiAngelo. The author is infamous for her fringe racial theories and incredible bias against white people. Coca Cola seems not to be bothered much by this and is using it to reforge its corporate culture. It is called “Confronting Racism” and is, again, incredibly racist. It attempts to teach individuals who watch it how to “try to be less white.” Robin DiAngelo, “the best-selling author of White Fragility”, gives people the vocabulary and practices they need to start confronting racism and unconscious bias at the individual level. It also helps organizations do the same.


The presentation villainizes a white person, just  for being a white person, as oppressive, arrogant, defensive, ignorant and more.


These new attempts at “challenging what it means to be racist” are introducing a new normality to Western life. The narrative is being arranged to be as useful as possible to those in power and to cancel, censor and attack those of differing views. Anything challenging is evidently being dismantled and kicked to the curb.


This uniform push is actively supported at the highest levels of the governing system and business circles, including the current Biden Administration, the wider Democratic rule and Big Tech.
