Does Language Determine Race?

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

A student from Paschal High School will lead a discussion on how the use of language or grammar can target or marginalize people of color. Consequently, language is also used as a discrimination tool by stereotyping  individuals as lazy, uneducated, or ignorant. The English language should build bridges among racial groups and evolve with societal changes instead of disconnecting schools, communities, or impeding progress within certain groups of people.
