Mathematics was never racist. But, white people have made it racist by shading global contributions, multi-racial/multi-cultural beauty, and higher, personal purpose to the margins, As such, there is a moral imperative to make it anti-racist.
Brilliant article, Sunil.
No punches pulled, actionable, visceral, feisty, perceptive, heartbreaking and utterly readable! Kudos! Your writing is so lucid, almost poetic! Awesome examples that reinforce your arguments.
My tuppence based on Angela Saini's excellent "Superior": Race isn't real. There is no scientific consensus that it exists. Or how many there are. Or how to classify them. Racial categories we use are arbitrary. Moulded by social and cultural constructs. I genuinely think this book is the only origin story of our species we need.
I reckon it makes a perfect science-backed companion article to your brilliant writing - so would really appreciate your feedback!
