For liberals, everything is racist.  On Monday, the Daily Caller reported that the director, staff, and tutors of the University of Washington, Tacoma’s Writing Center, declared American grammar is “racist” and an “unjust language structure,” while promising to prioritize rhetoric over grammatical correctness.

According to the Daily Caller, an “antiracist” poster claims “racism is the normal condition of things,” declaring that it permeates rules, systems, expectations, in courses, school and society.

The Daily Caller added:

“Linguistic and writing research has shown clearly for many decades that there is no inherent ‘standard’ of English,” proclaims the writing center’s statement. “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.”

In the introduction to its “commitment” section, the Tacoma Writing Center pledges to “listen and look carefully and compassionately for ways we may unintentionally perpetuate racism or social injustice, actively engaging in antiracist practices” before making nine specific promises to students.

“We promise to emphasize the importance of rhetorical situations over grammatical ‘correctness’ in the production of texts,” the poster adds. “We promise to challenge conventional word choices and writing explanations.”

Translation: Forget about proper use of English…

There’s more… According to the Daily Caller, the professor behind this is quite the social justice warrior.

In an article accompanying the poster, the University of Washington, Tacoma revealed Friday that Dr. Asao Inoue, director of the writing center, is behind the new push for social justice.

On his Tacoma faculty page, Inoue states that he does “research that investigates racism in writing assignments.” Meanwhile, the professor’s Twitter presence indicates no love for President Donald Trump:

“The Tacoma Writing Center’s prioritization of social justice over grammar resembles previous concerted efforts to legitimize incorrect speech, such as Ebonics, ‘inventive spelling,’ and ‘whole language,’” Rob Shimshock wrote.
