It's not about choice as much as you think it is. Many, no matter what their race or ethnicity don't have a choice. They 'maybe' haven't had the opportunities or abilities to speak as you think they should.

But, that said, I know a Latino who speaks as well as this white guy I know. So there!

It depends on the individual.. Some people just can't talk/speak "normally", but they are more intelligent than most of the populace combined.

Picking on grammar = the default back up when you lost an e argument

One cannot win an "e argument" when sounding like an imbecile.

On the internet... perhaps.

In the real world (where things matter), absolutely not.

I can say that arguing while sounding like a thug is more pointless than applying to a job with the name "Mad skills in bed"

Or getting an email at the office with grammar errors. Terrible.

Ex is a recognized abbreviation of "example". http://www.abbreviations.com/EX

"i.e." (id est, or that is) makes no sense. If you wanted to change his math/academic abbreviation to latin for some reason, you would use "e.g." (exempli gratia, for example).

Nothing more hilarious than a smart alec who picks on spelling gratuitously being schooled.

yes, like the viral picture of that Sebastian kid holding an iPhone claiming that girls show him "there tits." I doubt it actually happens.

Do you instantly judge people and look up to them or down on them merely based on whether they're using big fancy words versus not knowing the difference between there/their/they're?

or do you try to look past there weak education and see if their good problem solvers and just smart in a different way?



.....but, in many ways........YES!
