I understand this is a sensitive topic for some of you well &roomed" pet negroes.
sub-consciously crkkkaz want you to think their way of doing things is superior

There is absolutely nothing wrong with having a black accent, except that in a society where whiteness is normative, a black accent is judged as less desirable. Making a call without your "white" voice on could mean the loss of a job, an apartment, any number of opportunities. So, as a matter of survival, upwardly mobile blacks learn to effortlessly code switch, that is unconsciously modify speech to slip from one culture to another. Many of us reserve speech with ethnic markers for conversations with other people of our ethnicity.

It is telling that it is not just black speakers of more vernacular language that are criticized for their speech patterns. So, too, are those that speak Standard American English with tones, cadences and pronunciations associated with blackness .

... just as there is a vernacular dialect known as African-American English, spoken by many African-Americans across the country, there is also a standard variety of African-American English. This variety combines a standard English grammar with phonological features, intonation patterns and lexical items associated with African-American communities.

What's wrong with it?

We've deemed it such.

That's what's wrong with it.

Because when you sound like a negro we can barely understand you. That's why negroes are a joke in countries around the world. Specifically East Asia and East Europe.

You're an embarrassment for America.

It was "Black And I'm Proud" in the 70's.

Now some are losing their identity.

Thinking speaking a different way is somehow better.

We invented our own language/lingo because we can relate with one another.

Caring less and less what outsiders/non blacks think of us.

Some have definitely change who they are thinking that being like others was/is somehow better.

We have such a great culture. I wouldn't trade it for anything in the world.

It's a must to stay around your people who are grounded.

Ebonics is a guttural attempt to emulate a proven civilized language. It is nearly impossible for the negro species to articulate in human speech. They are much more adapted to making clicking sounds and ooking and eeking noises.

Can you NEVER be concise?

Boil it down to, "I love to wallow in ignorance".

I feel stupider for ever having read any of your posts.

I don't get it. Whites are stupid but you're illiterate? I never asked you to type like a hillbilly but an American. If you're unsure what that means because of your brain size, please try to imitate how "normal" people speak.

Illiterate boon.
