ok so heres my deal.

In 2001 the wonderful George Dubya Bush came up with this thing called "No Child Left Behind".

I live in Philadelphia, PA but in a neighborhood right before you hit the suburbs. All of the people here are really white collar.

Anyways, due to NCLB a lot of inner-city (and by inner-city i mean BLACK!) kids get to ride the schoolbus up to up to schools such as mine. Their in a better neighborhood so their more likely to get a better education.

I get along with the majority of them fine. I'm friends with most of them. But, they all speak god damn ebonics and its annoying as hell.

"Why is you be doin that". "You betta not be gettin all hype" etc.

I know that in the 90s they were goin to teach "ebonics" in public schools. Personnaly, i think thats stupid as hell.

Opinions? Advice on how to tolerate it?
#3
I don't get why "they" feel the need to talk like that, if there's an explanation please tell me!

Just seems really really stupid to me and particularly so because I imagine the majority of them are very very familiar with the english language..
#4
Are you seriously asking us how to deal with black people? Yes, these are non-segregated schools, they decided this about forty years ago. It has nothing to do with No child left behind. God I wish I had some brethren to help me out on this one...

^the laws used to say you need to go to your neighborhood school. NCLB allowed inner-city to go to outer-city and suburban area schools for better priveliges.

I take it you have a problem with that?

Ebonics is "their" culture. It's their thing. It's the equivalent to your music scene. It's a part of you.

Here's the obligatory Pit answer:

Rape them.

No. It's a style of speaking. Can I ask what you mean by ""Their"" in the least cliched way as possible?

They say to stop with the pokemon references but people still post rape and kill in every thread. Don't you guys get tired of that too?

Wait, what? First of all, I said that to get it out of the way. Second, I never said anything about stopping with the pokemon references (except the whole mudkipz crap).

It's ok.

My advice is to deal with it. You'll find them talking like that all the way until the end of highschool. In college people change

Hey, I've been in college for a couple years now, and I still throw some pokemon references in. I just don't overdo it.

Whatever,

If you're cool with many of them, then why don't you talk to the ones of them who you're closest to. Tell them it bothers you and ask (lol, I initially typoed "aks" there) them to take it down a notch when around you. If you do it respectfully, it may work.

Personally I've never met anyone intelligent who speaks ebonics, that's more of a thing that stupid black people do. All of the smart black people that I've met don't talk like a stereotypical black person, and they use English properly (read: use big words only when they understand the meaning of said big words). An accent is one thing and I don't discriminate against people who cannot help how they talk, but when someone is using ebonics, they are deliberately not talking properly, and are obviously not trying to show that they are intelligent people. I've yet to hear someone say something in ebonics that is a good idea or makes sense.

Not very much at all, actually. We have a problem with the way a culture mangles a language.

idk...black people just tend to do that...just like nerds tend to play halo, rednecks tend to dip snuff, yankees tend to not cook well, people on the internet tend to be virgins, blondes tend to be dumb...its just the way the world works.
