From the University of Washington at Tacoma Writing Center:
STATEMENT ON ANTIRACIST AND SOCIAL JUSTICE WORK IN THE WRITING CENTER
The writing center works from several important beliefs that are crucial to helping writers write and succeed in a racist society. The racist conditions of our society are not simply a matter of bias or prejudice that some people hold. In fact, most racism, for instance, is not accomplished through intent. Racism is the normal condition of things. Racism is pervasive. It is in the systems, structures, rules, languages, expectations, and guidelines that make up our classes, school, and society. For example, linguistic and writing research has shown clearly for many decades that there is no inherent “standard” of English. Language is constantly changing. These two facts make it very difficult to justify placing people in hierarchies or restricting opportunities and privileges because of the way people communicate in particular versions of English.
There’s more, but that’s the gist.
We non-whites are too genetically disadvantaged to toe the same standard offered to whites, you see. Our defects are hard-wired.
This is a declaration of war.
And who is their enemy? The non-white students who buy into this declaration of their allegedly innate inferiority are their enemies. This is an intentional effort to hobble any consumers of this garbage–for life if possible.
Hardcore white supremacists are more honest and less dangerous than these academics. At least the worshiper of white carcasses will tell you up front that he hates your black carcass and wants nothing to do with you. These credentialitarians are far worse. They insert their true opinions about the inferiority of non-whites into the guise of combatting racism. It’s a Trojan Horse.
“You darkies don’t have the capacity to learn proper English, so we won’t make you do it and we’ll give you a degree anyway.” That would be a more honest statement.
