Speaking Proper English is Racist, So Rutgers University Will “Deemphasize Traditional Grammar”

Rutgers College is now caving to the demands of Black Lives Matter — but not in fighting real and actual racism, but fighting the “racism” of proper English. Proper English, as you know, is a product of white supremacy, white privilege, and racism. It must be demolished.

In case you didn’t catch the sarcasm, that was sarcasm. But the headline is real. According to The College Fix, “The English Department at Rutgers University recently announced a list of “anti-racist” directives and initiatives for the upcoming fall and spring semesters, including an effort to deemphasize traditional grammar rules.”

As Big Tech continues to censor conservative publications like ours, we must increasingly rely on supporters to continue our work. Much of our work, particularly as it revolves around a biblical worldview on social and cultural issues, isn’t even allowed to be shared on social media anymore. This reduces our traffic and causes us to move more of our work exclusively to Substack.

The College Fix, which obtained a copy of an email sent out by the English Department’s Rebecca Walkowitz on “Juneteenth,” says that the email lists “ongoing and future initiatives” to fight “systemic inequities facing black, indigenous, and people of color,” which include, according to The Fix, “incorporating ‘critical grammar’ into our pedagogy.”

This approach challenges the familiar dogma that writing instruction should limit emphasis on grammar/sentence-level issues so as to not put students from multilingual, non-standard ‘academic’ English backgrounds at a disadvantage,” the email states according to The Fix.

This isn’t the first attack on language by leftists. Postmodernism has completely taken over the schools and universities which relegate objective truth in favor of a subjective “anything goes” ideology. Colleges and universities have become nothing more than indoctrination camps for Marxism, Communism, identity politics, and Critical Theory.

Further, it’s not just secular schools that have been given over to this new thought. Many religious schools, including Baptist and Catholic, have embraced leftist subjectivism to the extent of condemning objective, right-wing ideas. Baylor University, a private Baptist school, has openly embraced homosexuality while helping gays develop their sexuality, and Marquette University, a Catholic school, has embraced abortion and supports Planned Parenthood. And Liberty University, the largest private Christian school in the nation, hosted the radical leftist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez to spread her Marxist propaganda.

Language is one of the pillars of a civilized society. If the postmodernists can destroy language, then they can render the Constitution meaningless. Further, they can render the Word of God incomprehensible — at least they believe.
