A taxpayer-funded professor of medieval literature at the City University of New York has announced that the use of standard grammatical English is wrongly privileged. Also, preferring standard English over other vernaculars is racist.

    Okay, so lets all just segregate ourselves and live in our own little enclaves and patronize our own businesses and doctors etc. That is what diversity is. It is not a strength it is a weakness and it is destroying the Western world. I feel so badly for my kids and now am fine with never having grandchildren. I can only imagine that if it’s bad now, the future will be sh*tastic.

    A professor of medieval literature? Try this quotation for size prof.
    The greatest scholars are not usually the wisest people.
    Geoffrey Chaucer (b1343 d1400)

    Follow along with me, just for a moment.
    If ANYTHING can be racist then simultaneously NOTHING can be racist.
    If everything can exist in both states until its state of racism can be observed and declared then we can use this paradigm as both cudgel and wedge against any group that it so happens to be useful.
    This is straight-up great terror stuff, right out of Stalin’s playbook, and needless to say, highly dangerous.

    If you want to sound like an idiot, go for it. Of course I’d never hire you to be the face of my company, not because you’re black, but that you can’t communicate in an intelligent manner.

      EXACTLY. You want to be understood, speak and write so you can be understood.
