Black Pride Does Not Include Arrogant Ignorance


We all make typographical errors. We need to proof everything that bears our name but we are sometimes writing in haste or when we are emotionally charged up and that causes problems. That does not mean we lack education, self pride, or respect for our native language. However, when our mistakes are glaring and plentiful and someone points out our flaws and we are neither willing to make a change nor to receive the notification with grace, that suggests we are indeed shown in our true and best light in poorly written material. Worse, assailing the person who points the flaws out as someone lacking in racial integrity is horrible. I have seen so many personal statements that are so error filled as to suggest that the physically attractive adult author is someone whose language skills are too poor for effective mature communication and/or whose self pride is non-existent that I have been swift to suggest gently that they correct the errors before they give the wrong impression of their true character. The replies I have gotten are so coarse that my time in the military service hearing vile obscene tripe seems like high church. I am now looking inward to be certain that I am not being an ignorant nuisance. Am I really offending these people by asking them to, "Please consider investing a few minutes in making these corrections so that no potential friend hesitates because they incorrectly conclude you do not care about your public image"?
