People who criticize African American Vernacular English don’t see that it shares grammatical structures with more “prestigious” languages.

 :lol:^^^now, see, M&G, your humble poster was just about to post a “substantive” comment on the thread’s topic, but would have had to follow THIS.  :lol:

So let me step back, re-group, collect myself, and I will share a few thoughts later.  :lol:

IN ALL SERIOUSNESS, I HAVE ALWAYS BELIEVED THAT ULTIMATELY THE OBJECTIVE OF THE SPOKEN WORD IS TO COMMUNICATE EFFECTIVELY THE DESIRED MESSAGE.  IF YOUR INTENDED AUDIENCE DOES NOT RECEIVE OR UNDERSTAND YOUR INTENDED MESSAGE, THEN YOU HAVE FAILED TO COMMNICATE EFFECTIVELY.  TO COMMUNICATE EFFECTIVELY YOU MUST KNOW YOUR AUDIENCE AND WHAT LANGUAGE THEY COMMUNICATE BEST IN.  I PRIDE MYSELF WITH HAVING HONED THE ABILITY TO COMMUNICATE EFFECTIVELY MY INTENDED MESSAGE TO A GROUP OF "HOME BOYS" FROM EAST BALTIMORE, LEARNED AND SUPREMELY EDUCATED ONNIDAN POSTERS AND EVEN TO "OLD SPORT" AND "Y04185". :nod:

^^^uhhh, sir,  your humble poster has, too, learned how to effectively communicate with the “homeboys” of East Baltimore.

I just finished watching the ENTIRE five seasons run of The Wire. I’ve got that particular vernacular on lock.  ;)

With all the divisive rhetoric on social media outlets like Facebook and Twitter, websites such as ours, especially message boards, are under the watchful eye of the Internet giants. And those giants are coming down hard on sites like this one due to the perception of the need for better "oversight".

We recognize the cultural conflict that exists and over the past few months we've been accused of allowing content in posts/threads that supposedly violates some advertiser's policies. Those threads weren’t an issue in the past, but for some reason, they are an issue now. And we are being penalized (financially) because of it.

 

As a result we are coming to you directly for your financial support>
