    I can only guess as to how you would incorrectly define "rap speak", but to imply that it could have the same meaning as Ebonics is ridiculous and shows even more ignorance. You say they sound like idiots? Try telling that to Talib Kweli. Odds are, he's significantly more educated and accomplished than you (no offense--but for what it's worth, the odds say that he's probably more educated than the rest of us, too).

    And speaking of Ebonics, how do you think people came to talk like that? Africans were brought over as slaves, barred from education, and then thrown into extremely dire conditions when slavery ended. Do you think all the other cultures in the world were speaking eloquently within a century or two of being introduced to education? How do you think the British feel about Americans and the ways we abuse English? Do we sound like idiots, too?
    Language is a funny thing. We can use perfect grammar, have great diction, sound very sophisticated, and still be an idiot. However, if communication with a listener is the goal, it is advisable to find some common ground. Just like the big word user needs to consider his audience, so does the user of dialects, whether it be street lingo, a thick Latino accent, hillbilly redneck, or someone from Massachussets.

    cinredsfan2000, please tell me whether you think I sound ignorant or not.

    Uneducated black people whose descendants were dragged here by slave owners? Until their English sounds more like mine, they sound like idiots.

    The indigenous peoples of the Americas? Until their English sounds more like mine, they sound like idiots.

    Refugees in search of a safe haven and being invited here by the U.S. government? Until their English sounds more like mine, they sound like idiots.

    Ebonics and Gullah are actual languages--they're corrupt forms of American English; which in of itself is an intentionally corrupted form of English.

    they're no less legitimate than corrupt forms of Semitic languages (which Yiddish is one example) or Finn-Urgic (like Runesinging, which Tolkein based Elvish from), and so on and so forth.

    I knew this gang would jump down your throat for sharing your harmless opinion, cinreds. That's what Redszone has become. What I did not anticipate however is that the author of this post is not Sea Ray.

    I hate when people say "Bangals." It's Bengals dang it. And I don't even like the Bengals so I imagine actual fans get annoyed by that.

    "And why do false truths persist, getting passed down the decades as if they were fact? It comes back to the same point: People believe things that are wrong because, individually, people rarely investigate their own beliefs, particularly when what they believe makes sense intuitively. Even more so when those around them agree with them." -K.F.

    YES THEY DO! And if my all caps didn't work, next time I will bold face it and underline it, becuase that's the best argument I have.
    What if this is as good as it gets?
