Fear the math bomb.

My wife and I travel a lot, and when we happen to be flying together she always insists on me sitting in the seat closer to the aisle, or that she sits in the window seat because she dreads having to talk to strangers.

Me, on the  other hand, can deal with it. Most people just want to make a little conversation because they are a bit nervous when it comes to flying, and I have no problem obliging them. I know it's hard for some of the folks who read this blog to believe, but I am really a nice guy.

So anyway, this all leads me to my blog post tonight, because apparently it started with a passenger, who, much like my wife, tends to ignore fellow passengers on a plane.

Guido Menzio, an Italian University of Pennsylvania economics professor told The Washington Post that he was the suspect. His seatmate tried making small talk while the flight was boarding, but he wasn’t particularly talkative because he was trying to work out equations on a notepad, Menzio said."

The fact that he looked Middle Eastern and was writing something on a piece of paper that she didn't understand, made it even worse. She told the airline that her fellow passenger might be a terrorist, because the stuff he was scribbling on the paper looked a lot like Arabic.

Of course we all know now that the subject of the woman's angst was actually Italian (whoops), and the thing he was scribbling was a math problem. Turns out, as noted above, the man is an economics professor at the University of Pennsylvania, which happens to be a fine institution of higher learning here in Philadelphia.

The following post is from the school paper.

"Penn professor Guido Menzio was on an American Airlines flight when he was profiled as a terrorist — for working on a differential equation onboard.

Menzio was on a plane scheduled to make a short trip from Philadelphia to Syracuse on Thursday when the woman sitting beside him passed a flight attendant a note. The plane sat waiting to take off for half an hour, and then turned around and headed back to the gate. Menzio’s seatmate was escorted off the plane — the flight attendant indicated that she was sick — and then Menzio was also escorted off the plane. An agent subsequently informed him that the woman sitting next to him hadn’t actually been sick; instead, she had said that she suspected him of terrorism because of the suspicious letters that he was writing, the Washington Post reported.

In response, Menzio just laughed, and explained that what he was working on was a math problem. Eventually, he was deemed harmless and allowed to return to the plane, which finally took off two hours late.

Menzio is a world-renowned economist, and was on his first leg of his trip to Ontario, Canada to give a talk at Queen’s University about menu costs and price dispersion. Last year he won the Carlo Alberto Medal, awarded to the best Italian economist under 40. The dark curly hair and olive skin tone that his seatmate may have thought indicated Middle Eastern descent were actually marks of his Italian roots.

Menzio told the Washington Post in an email that the jumpiness of the woman who reported him could be related to rhetoric of the current presidential election cycle.

“What might prevent an epidemic of paranoia? It is hard not to recognize in this incident, the ethos of [Donald] Trump’s voting base,” he wrote to the Post." [Source]

That's a low blow blaming this all on her being a trump supporter. I mean how do we know she was a trump supporter? Because she mistook a math problem for someone writing in Arabic? Well...wait a minute... now that I think about it, I can't really blame the professor for coming to that conclusion.  I mean some of these trump supporters.*shakes head*

Although it's not only the poor trump supporters. I have been known to be terrified at a math problem or two in my time. So I guess, in a way, this dude was a terrorist.

Anyway, no more Al-Gebra network jokes, please.  We get it. Americans are not very proficient at math, and sometimes xenophobia can cause flight delays. Look for math sniffing dogs coming to an airport near you.

It must be tough looking Middle Eastern and trying to fly in peace these days. And it's always these Ivy League types  from our finer institutions of higher learning that get the business. We Americans don't like our brown people looking or being too smart. It makes the rest of us look bad.

And I call bullshit on American Airlines for trying to say that they would have done the same for any two passengers that had a disagreement. The truth is that now that they have been embarrassed for being caught buying into xenophobic fears, they are trying to spin this the best way they can. 

The next time that my wife travels alone I am going to insist that she acts nice to every stranger that she meets.

 Because you never know, reading an Essence Magazine before take off might be perceived as some secret sign between terrorists.

dinthebeast said...

Well, in a certain sense (not the one she was worried about) the woman was right. She was seeing him writing Arabic because the numbers we use when we write them are Arabic numerals (actually Hindu Arabic). And the joke about the Al Gebra network? Algebra (from Arabic "al-jabr" meaning "reunion of broken parts") Scary concepts to some, I'm sure, but not worth disrupting a flight over. We need to do something about how scared of nothing we are, there are plenty of real, scary, things out there to be frightened of without inventing extra ones which are bullshit anyway.

The sad thing is that Dr. Menzio's fellow passenger may hate the very idea of a Trump presidency, may have no intention of voting for him, yet have been affected by his rhetoric and the paranoia it has roiled.

Wow. This woman's ignorance of mathematics, culture, and social interactions and her consequent overreaction to a perceived threat are Donald Trump's fault.

We've already learned from the NYT and CNN that the paid leftists who disrupt rallies and attack Trump supporters are Donald Trump's fault. Now apparently everything that happens that can be twisted into supporting the leftist narrative is Donald Trump's fault.

And this bozo accuses others of being paranoid?

I think, though it’s not been widely acknowledged much, there’s been a cultural devolution gaining momentum in the former black working class and below that’s been slowly occurring since blacks left the Republican party, that black elites, and especially white Democrats willfully ignore, and the “black lives matter” constituency are too feeble-minded to be aware of.

Black Republicans were moral, family-centered, community-minded people.

Black Democrats are licentious, neglectful of their children, and anti-social.

The most important lesson black folks must learn is, when American white culture devolves, American black culture devolve even lower.

Trying to lower white people’s status is an exercise in cultural self-annihilation.

At least when you assert pride in your heritage no one calls you a Nazi.

I think it's fine that black people have "confidence in their blackness". White people should be allowed to honor their heritage in peace, or at minimum not to be constantly attacked over it.

The President is supposed to be everyone's president, not to place certain groups above others. He is supposed to rise above differences and bring people together, not exploit divisions for political gain. His presidency could have been a new beginning for America, instead he has worked to hasten its end.

Ignoring the foolish bomb throwers on this site or SBPDL, the tricky thing will be to explain away the various statistics out there for things like IQ, crime, athletic ability, etc. It's an interesting topic and hits the perfect dissonance between science and peoples' emotions.

I've never heard a convincing case to be made for assigning 100% of race-based differences to purely social issues, but there's no harm in trying. Truth is, the bioscience people are making such huge strides right now in understanding how people are screwed together that any opinions a person might presently have are probably wrong. Dunno what they're going to do when a cheek swab will tell you that a particular individual is 10x as likely to be a criminal as another.

C'mon man, we just had the Polish Pride parade in Chicago. The Irish have a parade, there are so many demonstrations of pride I lost count. You're right, when I express pride in my Blackness I'm called a racist not a nazi. Anytime you white guys want to change social status let me know, I'm sure I would find it a little easier to move through america on a day to day basis. Sometimes the grass isn't greener dude.

Also Stop the Racism the President has done an outstanding job of bring America together IMHO. Can you give a specific example of Barack dividing America along racial lines? He has in no way hastened the end of this nation by any means, such hyperbolic pronunciations makes me think you have a racial axe to grind. Also, can you give me an example of what you mean by expressing pride in your heritage? To be honest, when white use the term "pride in my heritage" that is usually code speak for some kind of racism. BTW, there are many sites that celebrate white heritage why do you post here? Kind of ineresting that you post your grievences about white cultural persecution on a blog called The Field Negro.

Mrs. X and I discussed this and that argument against anti-discrimination laws is bogus. First, if someone is a child molestor they aren't just sitting around waiting for this law to pass so they can do their thing. Very weak argument. Secondly, it is our duty to protect our kids against ANY danger. Why would I allow my kid to be in any situation in which they could be harmed? My wife would accompany her and if it were just she and I we would have to find a family restroom. This ain't rocket science. Child molestors have been around forever and guess what, there have been virtually no cases of them being transgendered. How do you know someone is transfer anyway? Do you check the goods? There are so many other things to be paranoid about than transgenders pissing.

BTW, now that I answered you have to admit you were wrong about me. :-P

I am one step ahead of you here, from ages 0-5 she would not go alone! After age 6 I would take her to a family restroom, check it our first to make sure it is empty and then allow her to go in to use the facilities. No muss no fuss. There have always been child molestors and a gender equality law won't change that not will it change the fact there have been no known instances of a trandgender molesting a child. Go worry about something that is a real problem sir.

If so, I don't believe you've ever had a kid. If she just needed to take a tinkle...hell, I've seen women who could take a piss faster than I could...taking into account what they are wearing, of course.

If she needs a bit more time, she would drop a hint.

If that's not your point...what is?

BTW...just as an aside....My Godmother taught me how to whistle, and I'm talking about LOUD. It will damn carry across the wind. My daughter was instructed how to do the same. We could talk across stores, even Malls....(ie..where are you?)

It might scare the crap out of some folks who were near you But, if she didn't whistle back, I went looking.

And no, you don't have to stick your damn fingers in your mouth to whistle that loud. It's all in the tongue, and the roof of your mouth.

I know all about whistling, screaming, biting, kicking and requiring my daughter to have at least two black belts (one in a primarily stand up fighting style and one in a primarily grappling style).
