On the back of the Tesco signage debate earlier this week and the BBC’s follow up on the misuse of grammar, something leapt out of John Singleton’s Boys N the Hood opening title sequence. The text stating the shocking fact that “one out of every 21 black American males will be murdered in their lifetime” confused both me and my flatmate.
Not to belittle the message but “in their lifetime”? WTF?
Like you can get murdered post-mortem?
