    No one has the courage to comment on this Harry?

    Well then, I'll state the truth.

    Ebonics is idiotic from any perspective. Unless we wanna teach trailor-trash english as well.

    "Hey, I aint got none left":rolleyes:

    One thing is for sure, no "Experts are needed to translate ebonics". Just hire someone who is "street" experienced.

    Expert my arse! :rolleyes:

    Ebonics never left...

    Did you read the story, it is an effort to be able to decipher the subtlety of some language that is foreign to many.. it is not endorsing it, it is not supporting it.. it is an effort at understanding it.

    My guess is no one has the courage to read the article... just exhibit pavlovian response... but the title said ebonics.

    The war on drugs is a farce anyways..

    Bill Cosby gave it to them good over this crap, he called the people that wanted it taught in the school room "morons themselves" of course the first insult the whacko's could think of to hit Cosby with was their old favorite "Uncle Tom"

    Harry, why hnot save yourself some time and just post a link to Rush Limbaughs site and save us the clutter on this board?

    Every thing I hear Rush say, I can bet there will be a post about it here...

    Maybe there should be a federal requirement for all drug dealers, gang members and other criminals to be proficient in the english language and mainstream slang prior to plying their trade:rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes:

    Obviously the absolute irony of this whole thing is completely lost on some people. Not shocking, not really.

    I never have anything to do with Limbaugh, I got the Ebonic Thing from Drudge who i read everyday and some some of Drudge's stuff is a little over the top as is MSNBC's.

    Limbaugh's hatred for the Unions turned me off on him a long time ago (iwas a working Teamster for 42 years) I was also a Democrat for many years until the Far Left Screwballs took the party over.

    I still have some liberal in me as far as Drug Legalization, Unions, Homosexuals (who gives a sh!t) etc, I still vote democrat many times in my local elections.

    IT'S THE PHONY DOUBLE STANDARD FAR LEFT WING LOONS THAT TURNS ME OFF.

    It is not ironical, it is an obvious need.... take it or leave it. If you cannot understand what a person is saying you have to have someone who understands the language and accompanying nuance or you can have a bunch of guys spending all day guessing at what is said... I think he said that or I think he meant this... it is not all that complicated.

    Law enforcement in this day and age, requires a lot of different strategies..

    The atypical rightie response, if it is about black people, thus is it time to start another right wing circle jerk aka the expected pavlovian response.. ebonics plays games with the rightie brain.. this is a common sense post.

    If you do not understand the language, specific idiom and nuance, then you can loose an important case.. it is that simple.

    Exactly, they should take a test before becoming a "dealer" especially the ones assigned to the schoolyards.

    Maybe they could do the testing in Boothbay Harbor... that would be fun.

    There is no irony, as much as you want there to be.. this is about law enforcement and insuring that there is a good case presented by the Justice Department..

    The right LND et al, think it is about the proliferation of ebonics.. it is very sad to see the reading comprehension of the right..

    Rush is a big football fan, he comes to this forum and reads a lot of my sh!t then he uses it on his shows, I know this for a fact.

    Tolerating or accepting the term "Ebonics" is as idiotic as coining a term, "Cauca-bonics"....we don't accept idiocy...no one should.
