American Heart, Huck Finn, and the Trap of White Supremacy
Justina Ireland

I have a very close friend who has a PhD in an engineering discipline from a leading American university where I taught and a very strong minor in applied mathematics and his spoken and written English is far from perfect. So what? Does that fact make him any less intelligent or sympathetic as a human? Get real. I spent decades as a university professor working with masters and doctoral sutdents whose English was often difficult but whose minds were superior in every way. Your point is fatuous and insulting.

Like what you read? Give Bob Ernst a round of applause.

From a quick cheer to a standing ovation, clap to show how much you enjoyed this story.
