Rutgers University Declares Grammar ‘Racist’. By Chrissy Clark.
The English department at a public university declared that proper English grammar is racist.

What is critical grammar, I hear you ask in trepidation?
The “critical grammar” approach challenges the standard academic form of the English language in favor of a more inclusive writing experience. The curriculum puts an emphasis on the variability of the English language instead of accuracy.
