Book: Ax or Ask, The African American Guide to Better English

LOL LOL LOL LOL  For some reason this video made me laugh so hard.  Black people know that we are for the most part bilingual.  Dave Chappelle said it best.  “We shape street venacular, and we speak job interview.”  The problem is when people don’t recognize when it’s not appropriate to speak street venacular…when they haven’t been taught the option (education, slang, etc).

ambalaps = ambulance

Ain’t is not a word

Conversate = converse

sum = seven

We all know this.
