A professor in the US says mathematics is racially discriminating. Rochelle Guitierrez from Illinois University has published a book in which she claims that aspects of the subject are an ‘unearned privilege’ for white people.
Gutierrez describes what she calls the use of ‘political knowledge’ to teach mathematics.
