If I may disagree with you referencing ‘Ebonics’. Ebonics did not begin with our ancestoral relocation. That was called ‘dialect’. The unrealistic term ‘Ebonics’ began in Los Angles, California, by the public school system in a so call (offensive) effort to teach and understand the black student coming out of the projects.It was yet another ‘creative’ way to disrespect black people, implying we can’t speak English correctly. As for my opinion,some children will do what you allow them to get away with in your presence.It was and is not that these students couldn’t speak English appropriately, it’s just they chose not to do so.
