Shakespeare said in a play, “The first thing we do, let’s kill all the lawyers….”
But I think perhaps he got it wrong. When we have Professors at large universities telling people who can’t or won’t speak correctly, refuse to actually learn the language as it is, and then ignore the fact that they are as racist as they come that they are “ok” there’s a serious problem in this country.
The problem started with, and is going to end with the educational system we have in America, where the US Government dictates what local schools can do, how much money they get and use the massive enforcement system of the government’s arms to remove non-compliant leaders in the field of education.

Columbia professor: “Cracker may have been an appropriate term” for Trayvon Martin to call George Zimmerman
It made sense for Trayvon Martin to call George Zimmerman a “cracker,” according to Columbia University professor John McWhorter.
McWhorter, a professor of linguistics and a contributing editor to The New Republic, was a guest on MSNBC‘s ‘All In with Chris Hayes‘ on Thursday night, where he expounded on the Zimmerman murder trial. McWhorter proclaimed it somehow acceptable that Trayvon Martin had supposedly called Zimmerman a “cracker.”
“Of course he might refer to the person as a cracker because he’s a human being,” McWhorter said, explaining that Martin might have felt threatened by Zimmerman following him.
