That's a nice segment. My compliments to Mr. McClendon (as well as Mr. Cosby) for not giving in to the soft bigotry of lowered expectations.
Reminds me of the "ebonics" movement in , I believe, San Francisco a few years ago to legitimize and incorporate this type of grammatical butchering of the English language into school systems.
Good for him.:thumbs:
One of the things that made liberals want to make a rock star out of Obama is his ability to speak English proficiently and clearly.
Oddly, the Coverdale Bible (1535) has Jesus saying the following in Matthew 7:
"Axe, and it shalbe geuen you: Seke, and ye shall fynde: knocke, and it shalbe opened vnto you."
I was going to say the same thing Jerome , though not by quoting an older Bible version . The pronunciation of "axe" was common centuries ago . Also , helped was said like "helpid" and loved was said like "lovid" . Koreans learning English unknowingly use the 16th century style sometimes .
The point is that people who can't speak proper English have two strikes against them in the business and academic world. What percentage of the children who use "axe" thing they will grow up to be basket ball stars, rap stars, dope sellers, or sellers of something more personal?
I don't want my grandkids going to school or to church with them.
BW , you might want to reconsider what you have said . It's fine for you to have your grandkids exposed to proper English . However , for you to say that you do want your gk's mixing with non-standard speakers of English at Church is too prejudicial . Step back a bit and think what you are saying -- what that sentiment entails .
I wonder if when we get to Heaven, we will get our English right?
Or will there be people their axing God, where the white people just like them are at?
