Ebonics grinds my gears.
When I hear mayors and other people of power not conjugating it makes me want to jump through the radio and choke them. The NO mayor sounds a dumb frick. English, do you speak it?

It’s terrible of me. I feel like the nuns that taught me would drag a bitch out of the press conference by her ear.

She has to relate to her people.

Saying you'd appreciate more grammatical integrity from those in leadership positions is not racist and a reasonable statement. It was however OP's choice to use the word "ebonics" so yeah I'm comfortable calling him racist.

President Dwayne Elizondo Mountain Dew Herbert Camacho is my favorite political orator.

This sentence is imperfect grammar, if you want to get picky.

The mayors and others you referred to are indeed “conjugating”, but I believe you meant that they were not conjugating correctly, ironically how you composed this sentence.

Which means absolutely nothing. Ebonics is trash speak.

Using the term Ebonics is racist?

So you believe that only blacks speak ebonics. And he is the racist.

Sounds to me like you should check your white privilege. LaToya will not be bullied by the likes of you.

What does the word Ebonics mean to you?

And just using the word is fine, context always matters at least in my opinion. The context for the OP is that "using ebonics" = dumb as frick

My favorite part is in this thread will be a bunch of posters saying how stupid ebonics is while they say "make groceries"

The lack of self awareness and hypocritical nature of the OT never disappoints

I don’t think they’re dumb, it just sounds dumb to me...It’s annoying. I’ve had the director of an organization I worked for do the same shite. Of course I just sat annoyed instead doing anything else.
