Andrew Ti and special guests from The Asian Student Union finish the week off by discussing if it’s racist to correct other people’s incorrect grammar. As always, leave us a message about anything you think is racist at (323) 389-RACE.

It would've been nice for the guests to put in a bit of effort for this one.

Ta-Neshi Coates has an excellent piece basically about this, and how policing grammar is a way to police minorities (of any race)

I thought they did pretty fine, especially for hungover college kids who've probably never had any radio experience. I only wish they had some better mics, but it was surprisingly good for just merely using a laptop.

They did better the other 4 days, maybe it just wasn't as interesting of a question to engage them for Friday.
