Grammar Police

I am not a grammar snob by any means and my spelling and grammar is far from perfect, but I REALLY hate when people say ax instead of ask. In the video below a teacher is getting heat for teaching seminars on anti-slang language usage in high school and college students. The reason why people are upset? He is African American and targeting young black youth whom he says are most at risk for speaking incorrectly. I don't get it though, what is wrong with someone trying to rescue children of their own race and help them succeed in the workforce?
