    A self-identified "cringey" California English teacher claimed she
    combats "white supremacy" "B.S." in her classroom by teaching students
    about the overemphasized importance of grammar usage and writing rules.

    Marta Shaffer, a tenured English teacher at Oroville High School, began
    the 2022-2023 academic year by teaching parts of linguistics as a way
    of "fighting white supremacy in my classes," according to her posts on
    TikTok. The goal was to be "inclusive of all kinds of ways we use the language."

    According to Shaffer, expectations for students to use proper grammar
    and syntax is part of White supremacy culture that "runs deep."
