As a result of the BLM protests, lots of people are calling for the restructuring of the curriculum. I have no issue with including a broader range of thinkers. However, I teach physics. There are staff insisting that what I teach must change. How? Why? Newton, Einstein, Heisenberg, Pauli, Lorentz, Tesla, Becquerel etc etc etc had light skin. It's completely irrelevant to the science they described. The physical laws of the universe do not change no matter who discovers them. What really bothers me is a film clip I saw a few years ago. I've tried to find it since and can't. It's a lecture given about decolonisation. The speaker says something about how one tribal group believe they can control lightning with their minds. Another prof says 'But it's not true' and is immediately rebuked. If we can't speak basic truth about the nature of reality then science is done. I don't give damn that Newton was white. If he had been black or asian his theories would still have been elegant, useful and beautiful.
