Victims of Racism Rebel Against the Microaggressions of Grammar and Punctuation
Although liberals often give the impression that they could not possibly be right about anything, they are correct that blacks are held down by racism. One example is racist community activists preventing nice stores from being built in their neighborhoods, lest they draw whites who might dilute their power base. Coach Kevin Collins provides another, from UCLA:
Recently a group of 25 self-described “Students of Color” held a sit-in to support poor English writing skills. They whined about the “racism” of being offered constructive criticism of their lack of grammar, spelling and punctuation abilities.
As products of dysfunctional government schools, many if not all of them have little or no writing skill. Many of them don’t know they have no writing skills. They have been lied to and had their heads patted so often by paternalistic liberals they can no longer recognize the truth about their shortcomings.
Wait… what’s this about blacks with shortcomings? Is this guy a racist or something?
Using the psycho-babble phrase “micro-aggression” to characterize the professor’s “insulting” act, the Black spoiled brats issued a statement which was likely written by someone who was not offended by being taught how to construct a few sentences in standard American English. Reading their childishly injected “big” words certainly makes the point that most of them don’t get it.
They said, “A hostile campus climate has been the norm for Students of Color in this class throughout the quarter as our epistemological and methodological commitments have been repeatedly questioned by our classmates and our instructor. The barrage of questions by white colleagues and the grammar ‘lessons’ by the professor have contributed to a hostile class climate.”
Looks like Autum Ashante is all grown up and attending UCLA.
The likely “cherry on top” of this story is the probability that the professor is a liberal (this IS UCLA after all) who comes from the same “educational” approach that created these spoiled “Students of Color” who cry racism when someone tries to teach them something. They are actually so poorly educated they can’t conceive of anything else to yell but “racist.” Hey they’ve watched it work before!
There was a time in America’s benighted racist past when you would have to already know how to read and write before they let you into college. But we are more enlightened now. You don’t even have to be literate to graduate.
Any self-appointed advocates of the black race want to explain how blacks are better off not knowing how to speak and write proper English?
