Power pervades racialized structures. One of the ways this is manifest within the context of academia is through the propagation and normalization of “proper” and “correct language” discourse. This paper specifically analyzes the ways in which journalism classes, and the dissemination of culturally contingent grading criteria, mask and reify structural discrimination of non-white students. Utilizing critical autoethnographic methodology, I explore the ramifications of divergent grammars, organizational patterns, cultural values, and the impact on international students and students of color. I also propose various administrative and pedagogical suggestions for change.
