Thomas Sowell Explains to us that so-called "Ebonics" comes from White Redneck Culture Column dated 05 May 2005
This is a very thought-provoking column. Teachers are always told that they should not correct black students when they use improper English and bad grammar. They are told that, if they do so, they are being insensitive to Black culture. Well, guess what? It turns out that the bad English that has been named "Ebonics" is actually rooted in White redneck culture -- a culture that "did not emphasize education, for example, or intellectual interests in general", and in which violence, and illegitimacy were far more prevalent. And this begs the question -- if it is okay to criticize this sort of culture when it is associated with white people, why is it not okay to criticize it when it is associated with black people? Remember the sauce for the goose rule. _____________________________________________
