Ok, there is Spanish all over that check, so just maybe this person isn't black. In

It is not "ghetto",... it is slave speak . Ebonics is what we call slave speak in todays PC world. That culture wishes to remain slaves , obviously, because even though they grow up watching the television and hearing proper English being spoken , and schools TRY to educate them, they REFUSE to learn. Then they blame the white man for their lot in life.

Ed Ferrugiari ...Or this guy is just phonetically sounding out words... Why do you assume that the person who wrote this check is african american? It's pretty prejudice to simply assume a black person did this based on your concept of vernacular. I have heard the term Ebonics before, but never have I heard the term "slave speak" in "today's PC world." Probably because I am not a racist who generalizes and propagates ridiculous, harmful stereotypes.

Ed Ferrugiari Screw Mark Davis. You're 100% correct.

Ed Ferrugiari- and you know this is true because you have spent how much time ensuring that the educational standards are the same and fairly applied for all cultures in this country? And you also know that they grew up watching TV and hearing proper English spoken how? I am an educated person and I rarely hear correct English being spoken on news programs, much less sitcoms and dramas. Before you make such sweeping generalizations and placing blame, ensure you have sufficient proof-- ignorant opinions don't count.

Minnie K. Gracie , Many years ago , I dated a speech therapist who worked for the Philadelphia school district. It was against district policy to correct Ebonics. She was not allowed to teach the children correct pronunciation. I refer to it as slave speak , because , well , where else was it ever spoken. Why is it that only blacks who were born and raised here speak it ? You will not hear it spoken by english speaking black people in any other country in the world.

Ed Ferrugiari This is correct. The only people who deny it are people who themselves are ignorant. like this guy: Mark Davis, who isn't comfortable with himself enough to be aware of it. It is ignorant, Minnie, to yell blasphemy just because you disagree. The argument "You do not have proof" is not proof that he is wrong either.

Mark Davis , is that how you pronounce hundred ? "hunnit" , or fifty "fiddy" .......I don't think so. The only people I have ever heard pronounce it that way have been blacks. Yes , I have heard it pronounced this way six hunnit fiddy times too.

Ed I used to live with a friend that would call me a "grammar nazi" for correcting him when he say things like "I ain't got". I mention this because he is white and I am black...perhaps you should meet a wider ranger of people.
March 30, 2014 at 6:45 pm
BTW...the word you should use is vernacular. Saying "slave speak" makes you sound just as ignorant as the person that wrote the check. LOL
March 30, 2014 at 6:49 pm
...and as I'm saying this I just realized I should spell check my own post. I left out the word would and typed ranger instead of range! hahaha

Anthony Scott Buchanan , I did not in any way propose that ALL black people speak this way. Only the ignorant people. Ignorant white people speak incorrect English as well. I chose not to use the word vernacular, because I was describing a form of English spoken by slaves here in the USA. It is still used by ignorant black people here in the USA. Those who refuse to better themselves by valuing and achieving an education.
