Why is that racist. I thought that blacks embraced embonics as their own language?

that's exactly it. don't assume. "dude" "awesome" "fuckin a", hell the entire english language is made up of words that were'nt seen as actual words till it was common place. and it's always the ass who makes fun of things he/she does'nt approve of or understand do to the fact that said person did'nt grow up in that environment. and the way you put it took me back to the days of blackface and ignorance. i'm to young for that time period but none the less it's apart of my history and i feel the need to explore it. everyone uses slang or incorrect english in some form all the time and if you wanna get technical,english is broken english. a slang speach in and of itself derived from the english and made of all different dialects. so the next time you talk to a person that does'nt fit your mold, remember that you yourself are doing the exact same thing. look it up

Bla Bla Bla

Having family from Cali I know that a couple years back some california school districs wanted to teach embonics. The argument went all the way to the supreme court. It was ruled that embonics has no educational value and that the simple use of it makes you a assbag or something like that. Many reports were written saying embonics was a part of the black comunities culture. I think that it was best said that you can understand someone high on crack better then someone speeking embonics!

Sorry about the spelling errors I went to public school yo! :dunno

Hmm. What gave you that idea?

It is, of course, one thing to be racist. But it's a step lower to defend it with some attempt at a clever -- yet still racist -- retort.
Because when Chicago and parts of California wanted to teach it, large portions of the black community defended it as their culture, that's why. You know, not everything that involves part of black culture as a comment is necessarily racist to anyone but a knee jerk liberal.

You've abdicated your responsibility here. I thought you guys weren't going to allow racist shit anymore. Isn't that what you decided?

Oh and the Supreme Court stuff above is total BS.

The resolution regarding ebonics by the Oakland School System. Unanimously adopted btw. I find this discussion fascinating frankly. If the original post had said, "here's the constitution translated so ignorant black people could understand it," then I'd agree that it was totally racist and wrong. But, as it is written, it is simply stating a translation into a recognized dialect. I'm sure nobody is saying that certain black people don't speak ebonics, or that some whites don't for that matter. I don't think there's a value judgment in the original post. I am not racist in the least, but I think we should use our heads before we label someone's post racist.

Vote to close this worthless thread...

Side note--I am voting for no other reason than the fact that all this thread can do is make people argue about racism...

I can't believe some people are so up tight.....He probably posted this to be a joke, take it as that. There are tons of jokes about whites, rednecks, blacks, japs, blondes, etc......He wasn't trying to be racist, he was simply posting. Damn guys, come on. I bet half the guys getting upset are white people. I probably have a handful of white friends and the rest other races, and none of them are this up tight about this. Relax a little.

eeeeeeeeesh! don't get me involved in this... seriously. :flipa I was being a smart ass, and besides, it's common knowlege now adays that any thing anyone says is considered racist. I say what I say, never trying to insult any one. If I do, I apologize and move on.
