While preparing for my interview, I found this vaguely amusing post. Ok,ok, I laughed out loud at the line "liberation is in conjugation". Seriously, I speak English the white way, and that's totally not suddenly making folk be like "Oh, I guess it is worth spending money on education and healthcare now" for fuck's sake. Note that my English is not 'correct'. Correct English is sort of a moving target as some rules are dropped and others are added. It may be technically incorrect to use 'them'for a single person, but only pendants care about that. It's certainly not seen as a marker of being a bad person if you break the rule in a 'white' way. It's when black folks have their own 'errors' that it's a big deal, and that's not cool.
