It's possible that this wasn't explained clearly enough in the commit message itself (though I would argue it was definitely adequately explained in the ensuing on-list discussion, and wonder how much of that discussion you've actually read), but the point is that the *whole idea* of "standard English" is tied to white supremacy, not any particular standard whether via its authors or otherwise.
