Reply To: Reply To: Why are white people obsessed with grammar?


People with the Valley Girl dialect are gainfully employed. How do you explain the dogmatism outside of work where most of the judgment lies? A couple of years ago, Obama was heavily criticized for code-switching into "nah, we straight" with another black American. Bush was elected and re-elected in spite of consistently horrible grammar. I guess majority rules only apply to the non-majority.
