Teaching Them to Curse: A Study of Certain Types of Inherent Racial Bias in Language Pedagogy and Practices.
Purnell, Rosentene B.
Phylon, v43 n3 p231-41 Sep 1982
Many negative assumptions about Blacks are reflected in current language and the language in literary works, dictionaries, the media, textbooks, and tests. Teachers must try to eliminate racist language and behavior by discouraging the use of negative language and by helping students to appreciate language flexibility and cultural diversity.
