— Launches CapitalizeTheB.com to Change Grammar Rules —
Houston, TX — Writer, Demetrius Walker, has launched CapitalizeTheB.com, a website that calls for all media, schools, and others to use an uppercase “B” when referring to Black people.
He adds, “The absence of light is black; this does not define my people. We are Black – connected by rhythm, roots, and a light that cannot be extinguished.”
CapitalizeTheB.com serves as the launching pad for a social media movement designed to raise awareness of the incorrect grammatical usage of the lowercase “b” as currently written to denote Black people. The site encourages people to follow its Twitter and Instagram pages, while also referring people to professor Lori L. Tharps’ petition to the New York Times and AP stylebook.
