I recommend this fraud to go to the highest building at U. Illinois and jump off and say to herself gravity is subjective.

All of these claims willfully ignore an intelligent, hardworking, successful minority called Asians.

Then maybe she shouldn't be a math professor because she's enabling "unearned privilege."

What's more, this group of PC deviants start teaching these basic building block branches of math in ELEMENTARY school.

Notice that her position is in “math education”, not actual math. The NEA battalions strike again.

How soon will it be that graduates with degrees in Social Studies be allowed to build bridges?

'Professor' is becoming a 'tainted' word for me.
