You are one of those people who correct me.
I have confusion regarding the use of "one of them" and "one of those". Why we don't use "one of them"? Please explain it.

I think the relative pronoun who is preceded by noun or a pronoun in subjective case.
You are one of those people who correct me
We say it is I who am to blame
We do not say:
It is me who am to blame
so you are one of those people who correct me but not
you are one of them people who correct me.
This, that , these and those have no objective cases though they may be used as objects or subjects. They are demonstrative pronouns and they may be followed by nouns.
One of them people is wrong because them is a personal pronoun which can not follow any noun or a relative pronoon.
