As more and more ways for minorities to be offended continue to surface today, one professor at a New York university has come up with yet another one.
Professor A.W. Strouse of City University of New York advocates linguistic diversity by not forcing minority students to use Standard American English.
Deroy Murdock of Project 21 – a network of black conservatives – believes that Strouse is speaking way out of line.
"I just think it's astonishing that an actual educator like this Dr. A.W. Strouse at City University of New York would perpetuate the idea that people who are not able to communicate clearly and correctly should be allowed to do so – and somehow that's going to allow them to prosper and succeed in American society," Murdock argued.
Project 21’s National Advisory Board member also pointed out that some minorities would not have achieved greatness had they not used excellent grammar.
"I don't think astronomer Neil deGrasse Tyson would be prospering like he is now, NBC news anchor Lester Holt or, especially, Obama, would have succeeded in science, journalism or politics if they did not speak standard, common, American English," the conservative black leader stressed.
Strouse insists that students who use nonstandard language can become bewildered, hurt or angry if they are corrected in class.
