Piper Harron, an assistant math professor at the University of Hawaii recently wrote a post for the program she’s involved in, The American Mathematical Society, titled “Get Out Of The Way”, and in it she essentially states to white males “get out of the way or get demoted”. she states:
Not to alarm you, but I probably want you to quit your job, or at least take a demotion. Statistically speaking, you are probably taking up room that should go to someone else. If you are a white cis man (meaning you identify as male and you were assigned male at birth) you almost certainly should resign from your position of power.
I know you’re not going to quit your job, but I want you to understand that you should. And to understand that by keeping your job and your other unearned privileges, you are running a continued debt to marginalized people and you should always be seeking ways to pay us back. Not to alarm you, but statistically speaking you are the problem. Your very presence. I can’t tell you what is the best strategy for you to stop blocking my path. I can just ask that you please get out of my way.
So Harron shouldn’t be considered any sort of hero or role model to young people. This isn’t the right stuff to teach the next generation, no matter your race. Stuff like this perpetuates a cycle and the left, despite their words, want this to be a seemingly endless cycle.
