Leo Terrell slams professors who claim 'standard English' is racist: 'I find it insulting'

“Laat ek net baie duidelik wees, want ek vind dit beledigend. Hulle vra of probeer basies die idee dat swart Engels aanbied, of laat ons dit noem wat dit is, ebonics, word van die Swart gemeenskap weggeneem,” Terrell vertel “jakkals & Vriende.”

Terrell said that the Black community rejects Black English because it isimproper.

But these far-left professors are somehow claiming that teaching proper English is racist and that we should embrace ebonics, poor English, improper English. In essence, they are trying to claim that improper English is proper and I find that absolutely insulting and it calls for lower expectations of Black kids. It’s very racist in and of itself.

Bell argued that Standard English isanti-Blackness that is used to diminish black language of Black students in classrooms is not separate from the rampant and deliberate anti-black racism and violence inflicted upon black people in society.

Bell went on to say, “Teacher attitudes include assumptions that Black students are somehow linguistically, morally, and intellectually inferior because they communicate in Black language.
