I dont wanna bash the girl but damn yall are completely off. I dont believe that.
She was NOT born in Haiti so she is NOT an immigrant, her mother is. She was born & raised in Miami, fl. That would make ENGLISH her first language, being that it was ENGLISH she heard all thru school, no matter what was spoken at home.
yep, she's a gross pig of a woman also--somebody tell her to stop eating junk food--most ignorant black EVER

Larry Elders came down hard on Sister girl last night. He WAS embarrassed and honestly so was I. Sistaz should be getting an education instead of sitting around all day watching Reality shows and eating bags upon bags of Cheetos.

<quoted text> Unfortunately Desmond, language does show your smarts. It's a reflection of how you gather information and then relay it to people. I am sorry you don't like that those "white people" don't like the way black people speak. I am an educated black woman who despises the uneducated mess of how black people spell and speak. Words that are not made plural, etc. It's a mess. You don't have to like it but it is what it is. If you want respect, you speak respectfully. If a hillbilly is speaking and you cannot understand him, he's looked at as pretty stupid as well. So, he's going to get mad at society because we are judging him on how he speaks? Hell yes we are! Get over it!! Read a book, don't be another statistic. Be a man of color that isn't like the rest of them- telling everyone off that doesn't agree. Learn to respect differing opinions without name calling, that's educated. That's what education brings you- the power to understand that others opinions may not be your own and its ok. You don't have to resort to childish name-calling.
This is the problem with many black folks...we tend to confuse "education" and "training." Being able to speak "proper" english is not an indication of intelligence or education. it's an indication that you have been indoctrinated with the rules of tre english language. it shows you know how to follow rules no matter how arbitrary or contradictory those rules might be. I makes perfect sense that many blacks don't spell or speak standard english...this is because english is a language that makes no logical sense. you have words such "like" that really should be spelled "lyk"...how about words like "rough", "through", "bough", "thorough" that are spelled the same and they're all pronounced DIFFERENT! It's a bullsh8t dialect that comes from a mish-mash of languages dating back to ancient denmark, rome and france...plus a whole buncha other foreign words that are far from "standard." A lot of the time, the english language is nothing more than a bunch of arbitrary grammatical rules that don't make any logical sense...In fact, many ebonics speakers demonstrate sentence structure that is actually consistent with other languages.

Secondly, EVERY LANGUAGE IN THE WORLD IS A DIALECT OF SOME OTHER LANGUAGE. It's not like god came down and gave the human race a divinely prescribed language. FOr example, French, italian, spanish, portuguese etc, are all dialects of latin...in caribbean countries such as jamaica and barbados and guyana, they speak a dialect of english...and their language has it's own rules and structure...JUST LIKE AFRICAN AMERICANS. In Haiti, the FIRST black country to free itself from freedom and beat the british, french and spaniards in a war, they made Kreyol, not french, the official language. Kreyol is nothing more than ebonics derived from french.

bottomline is, we need standard english to get along in the workplace with white people who frequently tend to have influence due to our nation's historical legacy... and we need ebonics to live our lives with friends and family and people we love...all it means is we have to be bi-lingual like other races..but that's a small price to pay for preserving our culture.

I hope many AA aren't embarrassed by her, but if so who cares, she's got tutors to get her out of high school and do good on the SAT and a full scholarship to an HBCU. God is good.
You're a very sick person. I pity you. It would have to be one helleva tutor. She's going to do good on the SAT? LMAO! I wouldn't bet on it. Also, she had better hope none of the questions are in cursive. Or English for that matter. That little punk Piers Morgan says she speaks three languages. Too bad English is not one of them. Maybe they could teach her a little sign-language, and start calling her Coco the Gorilla. Love that doughnut that is permanently lodged in her neck. God help us all, we've let the monkeys run wild.

The young lady has braces and a lisp that's a deadly combo for trying to speak correctly!! I saw her last night on T.V and noticed the above. It was funny when she called attorney west daughter " a dum blonde" because of her bogus tweet where she called Trayvons case " stupidity"

No, go to the office, don't talk to me, I don't have to argue with you about, just walk, good bye.
Now, back to the subject matter...
I half expected the judge to charge her with contempt.
I don't give a damn if she is black or Haitian or whatever; I'm just tired of snotnosed kids talking back when they have nothing to say.

You aren't kidding. The average black Iq is only 85. Poor literacy and pattern recognition is a big factor.

I don't understand why everyone is giving that sub-human such a pass. She incited Traycoon to attack the fat bean-eater, by saying he was a "gay-rapist." Where is the gay community? No one whines as much as them. This proves two things. One: the sickies in the LGBTQXZI "community" see themselves as part of a coalition of minorities. That makes them dangerous, because they can vote. Two: Liberalism is a mental disorder.
