    What is wrong with this sentence?

    "you still concider them the white womans moral better."

    please correct this sentence for my friend thanks.. he doesn't agree with me at all.

    is there a dangling modifier in this sentence on "moral better" ?

    Re: What is wrong with this sentence?

    It doesn't really make much sense as it stands; what is 'them' referring to. Without more context, the pronoun doesn't point to anything. If we remove it and tidy it up, we would have:
    You still consider the white woman's moral (to be)better.
