A commentary on linguistic racism

In honor of International Blog Against Racism Week, I wrote an entry in my personal journal about racism in language attitudes. It is primarily directed at my American friends, most of whom are white, middle-class, and well-educated, but it might also prove an interesting read for you Danes (most of whom are white, middle-class, and working on becoming well-educated). As I said in the conclusion to that entry, I welcome reasoned discussion in the comments.

(The style for this blog doesn’t seem to insert a color difference on linked text; click on “an entry in my personal journal” for the link. Hans, can we do something about this so links are a bit more obvious? Thanks!)

I'm an American expat, married to a Dane, who originally trained to be a chemist. Having realized that chemistry was not the best subject for me, I'm taking advantage of the free higher education in Denmark to re-educate myself as a linguist. I'm definitely liking the change.
