Strunk and Whitey.

Though they reserve the harshest judgment for professional, do not
assume that white people will cast a blind eye to your grammar mistakes
in email and official documents. They will judge you and make a general
assessment about your intelligence after the first infraction.
Fortunately, this situation can be improved if you ask a white person
to proof read your work before you send it out. “Hey Jill, I’m sorry to
do this, but I have a business degree and I’m a terrible writer. Can
you look this over for me?” This deft maneuver will allow the white
person to feel as though their liberal arts degree has a purpose and
allow you to do something more interesting.
