Grammar is Now Racist
December 06, 2022
One English teacher, Marta Shaffer, in Oroville High School has decided that she won’t teach one of the main parts of her subject, grammar. Shaffer believes that some of the rules, which create a uniform system of writing, are the results of white supremacy.
"I try to undermine that B.S. in my classroom as much as I can," she said. "We study linguistics and the rules that we actually use to communicate instead of the made-up rules that white supremacy created for when we write papers and stuff, which is what scholars call the 'language of power.'"
