Physics is racist

Newton’s theory of gravity, and presumably all of Newtonian physics, is “Eurocentric” and must be eliminated so that black people can invent a science that “speaks to them.”

Newton may not have been the first to observe gravity. Show me the evidence that some mud-hut dweller on the continent of Africa wrote it all down before Sir Isaac did. Two plus two will always equal four, and the structures you design thinking otherwise will fail. It’s not racist, it’s not west vs. east. It’s SCIENCE. The laws of the universe are colorblind. Get used to it. Or not. I won’t miss your presence.

The more of this crap I see, the more sense that “scientistry vs scientody” thing makes.

Heliocentric, actually.

But what do I know. The sun is racist too, I suppose, since it emits “white” light. (Or yellow, which somehow is white light, as it were?)

The problem with the Eurocentric conception of gravity is that it pulls people down.

There, I said it.

Let me see if I can paraphrase this, maybe backwards.

Since black people can’t understand science, as commonly understood and taught by everyone else in the world, the whole thing needs to be canned and reworked catering to them. Gotcha.

This ‘logic’ smacks of a high schooler’s argument to get out of a compulsory science class.

Where did she say she was from? Senegal? The average IQ in Senegal is 76.

How about we not wreck science for those with double digit IQs. There was a time in American education where we didn’t pester the learning disabled with science classes of any depth.

you would think progressive means moving forward…we are going backwards…it’s like living in bizzaro world…where’s the damn space rock when you need it…

Physics and math are about as non-racist as any subject can be. Anybody who does the work right gets the right answer. Likewise anybody who doesn’t do the work right doesn’t get the right answer. Skin color doesn’t matter, identity doesn’t matter, nothing matters except doing the work right. The Europeans didn’t make up how to do the work right, the universe did – or God did, if you prefer.

Now much less racist can anything be?

“Your truth” and “my truth” works fine for “what’s your favorite color?” or “what do you like on your pizza?” not for “what’s the speed of light?” or “how long does this virus survive in sunlight?”

There you are, being a racist again. Didn’t you know that all knowledge is unique to the believer?
