INCREDIBLE! Learn English: Black woman makes video telling blacks to stop associating speaking English correctly with “talking white”

blkstrThis gal gets it, and her 4.41-minute video should be required viewing for anyone who wonders about a “black” way of speaking English.  She correctly, and well-spokenly, points out, “having proper diction doesn’t belong to the Caucasian race,” and “saying otherwise gets under my skin. Let’s stop saying that this person talks white, acts white….you’re actually elevating this race by saying they’re the only race that talks educated.”

BizPac Review further reports on this:

Talking white” and “acting white” are common phrases in black culture, but this woman wants to bring it to an end.

She made a YouTube video in response to something she saw on Facebook.

She said there’s no such thing as “talking white.”  It suggests that blacks betray their cultural heritage when they speak properly.

“I don’t know why we’ve gotten to a place where as a culture–as a race– if you sound as though you have more than a fifth grade education, it’s a bad thing,” she said.

It is so refreshing to hear a perspective like this, which doesn’t repeat the self-defeating black rhetoric of the Jesse Jacksons and Al Sharptons. This is the kind of fair, equal viewpoint we need more of in politics – is she interested in running for public office?
