    particularly the non-English speaking individuals (the illiterate are not a fucking "community," okay? they're everywhere scattered among many communities, and without a separate culture or identity; the non-English speaking are many communities, again not unified)

    That's what he said:  "the illiterate and the non-English speaking communities..."  Grammatically in this sentence "illiterate" is not modifying "communities" (but rather is being used as a noun) and "communities" (plural) is referencing many non-English speaking groups.

    Just sticking up for the commenter, who appears to have gone to bed, and pointing out that the outrage appears unnecessary in this context.

    Carry on.  This grammar gnome is stepping off his soapbox.

    ...with liberty and justice for al[most everybody.
