There is no such thing as "black english". It's more so a matter of location. In the south people have southern accents and in the north people have northern accents. Same for all races.<quoted text>
so....In a nutshel your saying you CAN NOT always discern ethnicity based on voice alone? Therefore, this imaginary "black english" doesnt exist, if it did...it would affect all black people, no non blacks would speak it and you would ALWAYS be able to tell color by speech.
Thanks for clearing that up :)
Although there is a different "sound" to a black voice, the dialect is normally tied into the region and isn't race specific.
With the migration of men and women around the US moving from state to state and mass media etc, even dialects are losing their relevancy now a days.
But no, sounding ignorant is not by any means "black" talk.
