Farley Column in the U.K. Guardian

An opinion column by mathematician and UMaine associate professor of computer science Jonathan Farley about discrimination against black mathematicians was published in a recent edition of the Guardian newspaper in the U.K. In it, he responds to an essay in the Nation Review that implied intellectual differences between black and white people.

Farley cited several instances of academic and societal discrimination against black people that he argues illustrate why no black mathematician has ever won the prestigious Fields Medal for mathematic excellence.
