Apparently blacks will be oppressed until Ebonics is accepted celebrated as the standard for scholarly research articles.

  • Your what hurts??
Ya know, it you were to attach a heavy electrical generator to the body of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., he would power half of the East Coast as he spins in his grave over issues just like this.

This is considered "empowerment" in the Black Community, who have for generations taught their children that being educated is "too white".  I wonder if any of these students read cursive writing.....

They are university students. If they can't do such basic things as punctuate and capitalize correctly, they''d fail my class. I'd be buggered taking the time to correct their papers.

Grammar I am slightly more flexible over.  :laugh:

I haz dreem - indeed.

What's scarier than the fact that cursive isn't taught in schools is that 1)  it's easy to learn, 2)  in spite of it being easy to learn, the high school I'm acquainted with know that they don't know cursive and are content to say "I can't read cursive" rather than taking a small amount of initiative and learning it, and 3)  their parents aren't teaching cursive in the home as a last resort.  As long as our founding documents are in cursive, I think people should go to great lengths to make sure their kids learn it even if the schools don't teach it.

You know what bugs me the most about garbage like this??

There still is REAL racism in this country, and it's not being addressed appropriately because of the idiocy of these groups.

The racial divide is deepening, and it's the fault of the left, and the left alone.

Character still matters.  It always matters.

And to think how a black president of the United States of America could've done so much to help heal racial divisions and yet he did so little, and in fact exacerbated racial resentments. What a wasted opportunity ...

Yes!!  Even though we hate his political views and his plan to "fundamentally transform" America, he could have done something good.

Instead, he has done the opposite, and in crying racism for everything, he has done nearly irreparable damage to race relations.

All he had to do is be a decent human being.

But he isn't........

I am SO sick of the word racist.  If you're having your grammar and punctuation corrected in college, you're the one with the problem. 
We are slowly emerging as a dumbed down world in order to appear non-racist. 

Why didn't the professor say the grammar and punctuation was terrible and it's a shame he had to correct it in the first place?  How about the truth for a change?

So what does not supporting the minority student have to do with capitalization errors?
