Re: UCLA Protesters Call Good Grammar Racist
I can't think of anything stupider to label racist.

In fact, behind the scenes and with deadly purpose, language is enduring an all out assault.

Just imagine language breaking down and civilization following suit.

And another thing, anyone who eats meat etc. to deliberately make their poop brown [poop doesnot have to be brown nor black, and is a mean, nasty, racist act], must from now on eat collard greens to poop green poop, or they are being maliciously racist, and psychologically rubbing black’s face in it.

Now then letus discuss your brown asshole, and a permanent colostomy for your racism.

WARNING....


Fifty years ago when those hippies were experimenting with drugs, I knew this was gonna happen.

Now all this hippy bullshit is spreading like a disease. It laid dormant until President Clinton was elected, then he got blowed, and it went back into dormancy.

Next Bush arrived and all hell began to break loose until Bush got re-elected.

Finally Barak Obama- he released it for good and once re-elected, the lies overcame truth he did BLOW and now we're screwed.

All this gay rights stuff, the resurrection of racism, foodstamp president- and finally the big lie.

Re: UCLA Protesters Call Good Grammar Racist
Why am I not surprised? So now it's racist to want your students to have good grammar and be able to communicate well enough to succeed in life?

When I see bad grammar I assume that the person who wrote it is uneducated. It may not be true of course but that's the impression most people get.

I was constantly corrected by teachers, family for making grammar mistakes in writing and speaking and I'm thankful that I can at least string a coherent sentence together. Why would someone want to appear dumb?

I can see this professor throwing his hands up in disgust and quitting.

Re: UCLA Protesters Call Good Grammar Racist
A University of California Los Angeles professor recently came under fire from a number of students for what they described as racist behavior. According to professor emeritus Val Rust, the entire controversy arose from his effort to instill in his students a higher grammar proficiency.

“I have attempted to be rather thorough on the papers and am particularly concerned that they do a good job with their bibliographies and citations,” he explained in a letter, noting “these students apparently don’t feel that is appropriate.”
He claimed that some students accused him of “micro-aggression” for pointing out mistakes in grammar and punctuation.
Rust noted that another complaint arose regarding a conversation about race that took place among a couple of students in one class. A number of demonstrators took part in the protest as some even occupied Rust’s classroom.

 Quoting: Abyss Lady

I was going to draw a wry comparison between a very successful chordate animal group, which has lost its nervous system through evolution, and these students.

But instead of being so smug and negative, I'll only suggest that every last one of the students should touch-type what they see on a website (not a hip-hip website), a book or newspaper for 4 hours a day until their vocabulary exceeds the professor's.

Grasp of language is a tool that sets the mind free. A good idea that can be easily communicated is more powerful than any bullet.

Everybody makes grammar and spelling mistakes, but for people to not aspire to improve their grasp of language is insane.

Its like these kind of people have never read 1984 and understood what newspeak was about and could lead to.

Good thing he didn't give his students peanut butter and jelly sammiches in class.

As in the thread from about a week ago where the principal of a middle (???) school in the PNW labeled PB&J racist. I guess those students that pass through that school will be conditioned well for this professor to teach when they graduate the public skool system and enter their college years.

Re: UCLA Protesters Call Good Grammar Racist
I finished reading both Booker T. Washington and Frederick Douglass' autobiographies recently. Both former slaves that TAUGHT THEMSELVES how to read and write, both without any formal education, both becoming beautifully profound writers. Both proffered that the best and easiest way to keep the black masses in a continued funk of economic and social ignorance was to ensure that they were not literate. I guess both they and MLK were racists also.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 43053124


You did little better.

What are you trying to prove anyway? That bad grammar is ok? That you are smarter?

I think the point here is that black ebonic students must be held to account to the same degree as white students. All of us who have been through college are well aware how stringently writing is taken. And why shouldn't it be? Should we as learned citizens not be masters of our own language?
 Quoting: Unixlike


I doubt that "black ebonic students" have anything to do with this. Why do you think that?

The OP link doesn't make this a black / white issue, and a UCLA article says there were about 25 graduate students of color participating. A photo shows about 9 of them, and they appear to be white Hispanics, except for an Asian, a black and a white. Notably, the white appears to be taking a cell phone camera picture, while the black is the only one actually reading an apparent handout/flyer, which several of the grad school students are holding.
[link to dailybruin.com]

The article also provides the names of the organizers and participants, and they look to me like Spanish-origin names.

In California universities, racial affirmative action is forbidden by state law, and there are not many blacks in the UC schools, especially at the graduate level, relative to many other states.

Re: UCLA Protesters Call Good Grammar Racist
There is no irony that the Democrat party in the Old South made a point of keeping blacks uneducated as to more easily control them. In that respect, very little has changed in this country over the past 200 years. The Democrat Party still presides over failing schools, failing policies, failing communities and has stoked the social chaos that has led to the virtual evaporation of the black family. The yoke has just been transferred from the plantation slavemaster to the politician and the university academic, who now achieve the same sinister ends via pseudo-benevolent mechanisms such as Affirmative Action and the lowering of social and academic standards. The result is the same. A significant percentage of America's black population STILL finds itself shackled, wanting and indebted to those who are most responsible for the degradation of their condition. It is a disgrace. NOTHING will improve in the black community until their self-anointed "protectors" cast aside the soft racism of low expectations and begin to hold blacks accountable to the SAME social and academic standards as the rest of society.

I must assume is is not ebonic-speaking blacks themselves who are stirring up this trouble. The use of the fancy term "micro-aggression" reveals the troublemaker as a highly educated person, even if this education mostly consists of leftist propaganda designed to sabotage civilization.
