By now, you’ve figured out leftists think everything is racist. Including that cream you put in your coffee, how dare you. From paper shooting targets to climate change, spin the white dice with black dots, it’s racism. Now there’s a new “racist thing to ban” trend making liberals weak in the cankles. English. No, not the class where one used to read books written by mostly white men. The language. Now, the English language is somehow racist. For serious…
An undergrad researcher at the University of Wisconsin-Madison has entered the public limelight with research indicating that standard English is “oppressive” to minorities, essentially stating that grammatically correct speech is too hard for them to learn.
Erika Gallagher argues that schools must allow for minority students to speak in ebonics, just weeks after the University of Washington-Tacoma endorsed a similar campaign declaring standard grammar racist.
Gallagher’s research focuses on a theory called “code switching,” which means that individuals adapt their speech and mannerisms to those around them. She believes that minorities with poor language skills feel marginalized by having to adapt to those who speak proper English. To mind their sensitivities, Gallagher intends to end the stigma of ebonics—also known as African-American Vernacular English—a dialect spoken by some black people in the United States—and encourage its use in schools.
Gallagher says she based her research on three interviews with student leaders at UW-Madison from minority groups.
Yo, dat needle on my racist meter be jumpin’, dawg…
Notice something? This woman suggested entire races of people are incapable of understanding a language like English. Regardless of whether you’re using Webster’s or UrbanDictionary.com, suggesting some races of people are too stupid to learn English is ACTUAL racism.
Also, this “researcher” interviewed a whopping three people. I’m pretty sure that wouldn’t pass muster in any real academic journal. But a three people sample size is the kind of thing that qualifies as rigorous academic research in leftist circles. And probably their idea of a great time in the sack. Allegedly. Don’t judge, love is love.
For all their shrieking and wailing about how it’s conservatives who are racist (and sexist, bigot, homophobes, transphobes and Islamophobes), they’re the ones who seem to have actual racist tendencies (see OUCH: Senator Tim Scott Puts Racist Liberals to SHAME on Senate Floor…). Believing minorities are incapable of ending a word with an r or a g strikes me as a bit racist. Putting them a pillowcase short of full KKK membership.
Speaking of the racisms…
