This woman is saying that minorities can’t understand math as well as white people so political understanding needs to enter into the higher math education realm .
She may be using enough double speak to make this a white issue, but what she’s really saying here is that some minorities can’t handle abstract thinking.
This is horrific, and it’s not the only story like this I’ve seen lately. She is stating that there are strict differences in ability based on race because of the source of the material. I’m guessing using Asian sources wouldn’t be any better than the Greek or European sources. There just aren’t that many examples of advanced mathematics in Africa, or South America, at one time Persians were the pinnacle of math, but that didn’t last for long.
“If one is not viewed as mathematical, there will always be a sense of inferiority that can be summoned,” she says, adding that there are so many minorities who “have experienced microaggressions from participating in math classrooms… [where people are] judged by whether they can reason abstractly.”
It’s math, and you are a racist.
