ANNOUNCEMENTS PAGE 3

ON THE SUBJECT UV EBONICS

So Who are you to say dat the way I talk aint right?

What gives you the nerve to tell me to tell me my conversation aint tight?

Pray tell when did you stay up all nite studing bout my words and expressions and language?

When you open yo mouf to speak do you stop to think? Whats da best way to express? Or, do-you-do, like evrybody else an let yo sirit handle da test?

So why do you think fo me you should decide da best way for my words to slide? Mite this just be moe of yo need to control the fight bout what's yos and what's mine?

You don't even know what you say "Just speak like me and your problems will go away". When's the last time you spoke black dialect for a day?

Member dis thang called talk is self-defined. Don't need no critique from da outside.

So why do you think fo me you should decide the best way for my words to slide?

Aint dis just exercising mo control over my life?

Anyway

When's the last time you spoke black dialect for a day?
