Postmodernist Math

This is a blog post you must read in its entirety. Here is a taste:
"Today, we're covering addition. Lakeesha, what's two plus two?"


"Class, in Lakeesha's cultural narrative, two plus two is twenty-two. Remember, Lakeesha comes from a rich, vibrant, oppressed culture in touch with nature, and her cultural narrative is as valid as anyone else's! Now, Ahmed, what is three plus three?"


"Ahmed also comes from a rich, vibrant, culture in harmony with nature, and in his cultural narrative, three plus three equals eight!"

"I thought three plus three was six."

"Johnny, three plus three equals six only in your oppressive, white, imperialist European cultural narrative!"
Thank you Right Wing Nation for your funny but tragically true post.

Good Day to You, Sir
