    Much better than learning Math

    • That was very condenscending. After years of generational neglect of social, economic and employment status we still excel in a system that is stacked against us.
      Subliminal racism is still alive and well.

      • Seriously...? says:

        That’s not subliminal. It’s straight up racist. Anyone in their right mind knows the importance of Math education Duh. Only those who have lived the struggle will understand and appreciate the importance of their history. Anyone else, well who cares what they think really. Well done Paget! Carry on.
