    for you are true martyr's of the white race.

    Hello,

    Is the following sentence grammatical?

    for you are true martyr's of the white race.
    I know that in some cases we can use 's and "of" simultaneously like the below example:

    This is the bike of David's

    But I think in the original text using 's is not correct. What do you think?



    Thank you in advance,

    The apostrophe is not correct there.

    People who write bile like the quoted lyric are not known for careful writing.

    The word in question is supposed to be a plural. (How people learn things that nobody teaches is a mystery to me.)

    Please do not post any more questions about that (or any other) vile, racist, text, Lumia625. I am closing this thread.
