Anti-Racist Math

What exactly is anti-racist math? Could it be something like this tripe?

Would you be afraid to send your child to a school where even the math instruction was politicized? I would.

Ah. I know it as multicultural math, though having attended several paper presentations, I'm still not sure I get what it's supposed to be, exactly, because let's face it, math is math is math, and the whole concept is oxymoronic.

As I've said before, my guess is that a top-notch algebra class anywhere in the world looks like one anywhere else.

Math is math. What you do with it is something else entirely, but let's teach the math first, shall we?
