"Actually, when it comes to most Black people, I’d be satisfied if they’d become bilingual in terms of Ebonics and English......By insisting on using that stupid dialect, Black people consign themselves to the lower rung of the economic ladder forever, just as surely as will a Mexican who speaks no English. Of course, any Black who speaks proper English is scorned for “acting White”—and thus will social pressure (and not “The Man") perpetuate a bad situation."
I couldn't agree more. I sometimes see BET while flipping through channels and just shake my head. Their own culture is destroying them. A successful, well-spoken black is considered a sell-out, an uncle tom.
