People are STUPID!!!!!!!
Epsilon: There are so many stories where some brave hero decides to give their life to save the day, and because of their sacrifice, the good guys win, the survivors all cheer, and everybody lives happily ever after. But the hero... never gets to see that ending. They'll never know if their sacrifice actually made a difference. They'll never know if the day was really saved. In the end, they just have to have faith.

While the protest seems stupid, based on the little information (the article doesn't have any quotes of students saying anything is racist), they are not calling spelling and grammar racist, they are calling the teacher racist and that he is acting it out through spelling and grammar corrections.

"students in the demonstration described grammar and spelling corrections he made on their dissertation proposals as a form of "micro-aggression'."

This could have merit if they can show that he is being tougher of people of color than on whites, and it would need to be on a systemic level, not just a single black kid being grader harder than a white kid.

A very poor example of journalism. The author did not even examine what lead to the allegations of a, ""toxic" racial climate in the Graduate School of Education & Information Studies."

I very much doubt it is soley because the professor is a stickler for grammar and spelling as the author portrays.
