Just shut up and listen, argues newspaper’s data editor

Paul Joseph Watson – APRIL 21, 2016

The Guardian’s Mona Chalabi says that correcting bad grammar is offensive and racist because white people are more likely to be concerned about good grammar.

According to the newspaper’s data editor, grammar rules were invented by wealthy white people and therefore non-whites should be free to ignore them without being criticized.

“The people pointing out the mistakes are more likely to be older, wealthier, whiter, or just plain academic than the people they’re treating with condescension,” states Chalabi.

“All to often, it’s a way to silence people and that’s particularly offensive when it’s someone who might already be struggling to speak up,” she adds.

Chalabi argues that rather than correcting bad grammar, people should just shut up and listen.

“We should spend more time listening to what others have to say and less focusing on the grammar what they say it with,” she asserts.


  1. What you be meaning?

  2. I have news for you–the people whose grammar I correct tend to be college-educated white persons.

  3. She sounds like a Ridgewood teacher . . . “Just put your thought down on paper, down worry to much about sentence structure or grammar.”

  4. Well, A. Nony Miss, I have news for you. You are in no position to criticize others. Here’s a tip. When bashing anyone for grammar or spelling in a public forum, triple check what you have written.

  5. Isn’t it rather racist to assume the people with bad grammar are non-whites? Just saying…

  6. “more likely to be older, wealthier, whiter, or just plain academic” whiter?? as in anemic ? and just plain bled dry ?

  7. 7:42… touche… and 614 got lernd to tawk good too….

  8. 7:42, that’s the problem! Correcting grammar is not criticizing somebody. For those who care, it’s like tying a shoelace or picking a thread off someone’s clothes…you just gotta do it.

  9. All standards are dropping. Instead of wanting to be a part of this country everyone wants their own version of America.

    This is not a melting pot it is more like stew.

    English is the language of business. This is the global standard. If people insist on presenting themselves as ignorant of the language and grammar they do so at their own peril.

  10. I didn’t axe you to comment on what homies be saying.

  11. being ignorant is part of their rich cultural heritage… what right do you have to invalidate it and try to change them?

  12. Um, they are corrected in order to figure out what the heck they are trying to conveying… oh wait, is that to heavy of a word. If someone says “I finna ax”.. I am going to get them an ax. There is a huge difference between ax and ask… schm… Why, as Americans wouldn’t we want to progress forward?
