Dean on Understanding Language

From Dean’s World, Understanding Language:

“No it is not stupid, it is not ungrammatical, it is not backwards. It is perfectly valid language, and by refusing to acknowledge that, you’re holding kids back from learning better Standard English.”

A really great post for explaining how many people don’t understand what black vernacular english is, how it works, and what it means.
