    Post multiple englishes!!! does it divide or unite us?

    to what extent should we expect everyone to speak a perfect standard english (the one english professors teach)? or should we learnd to appreciate multple english (slangs or ebonics)?

    Re: multiple englishes!!! does it divide or unite us?

    English is an organic entity which developes and grows daily. Slang (and I include ebonics here) is often transitory and goes in and out of use relatively rapidly. Dialects on the other hand, have a way of lingering longer. Embrace the dialects at least...dialects are real English!
