Racist Grammar

Rutgers University Declares Grammar 'Racist'

If you’re looking for peak idiocy from academic institutions who are falling all over themselves to kowtow to the mob’s notions of “social justice,” look no further.

The English Department at Rutgers University has declared that proper use of grammar is a hidden form of racism because it disadvantages students of “multilingual, non-standard ‘academic’ English backgrounds.”

“Variability instead of accuracy” means incorrect usage of grammatical norms. It’s nice that someone speaks a foreign language but isn’t the whole point of teaching proper grammar is teaching foreigners the proper way to speak English?
Yes, but it’s white and it’s male, and it’s gotta go.
Unfortunately, Rutgers apparently missed the mark with some activists. Aside from being incomprehensibly stupid, the change is, itself, virulently racist.
Quote:Leonydus Johnson, a speech pathologist and libertarian activist, said the school’s change makes the racist assumption that minorities cannot comprehend traditional English. Johnson called the change “insulting, patronizing, and in itself, extremely racist.”
“The idea that expecting a student to write in grammatically correct sentences is indicative of racial bias is asinine,” Johnson told the Washington Free Beacon.
“It’s like these people believe that being non-white is an inherent handicap or learning disability...
That’s racism. It has become very clear to me that those who claim to be ‘anti-racist’ are often the most racist people in this country.”
