From Dr. Mike Adams! (http://townhall.com/columnists/MikeAdams/2010/02/15/wigger_please!?page=full&comments=true) Whats education coming to!?!:eek:



Some people call them “wiggers” but I just call them “idiots”. I used to wonder where they learned to be so racially condescending - presuming that dressing and “talking black” was a cool thing to do. But now I suspect that many of them have taken a course under Maurice Martinez, an education professor at UNC-Wilmington.

The class “Teacher, School, and Society” (EDN 200) is required of all education majors. When students take Maurice Martinez for the class they get a special treat. Maurice teaches them “Black English.” In 2003, he even copyrighted course materials to make white future teachers fluent in “Black English.”

To think I used to call ebonics the “new black death.” In retrospect, that was mighty Caucasian of me – and that isn’t a good thing. If only I had taken Professor Martinez for “Teacher, School, and Society” I would know better.

In his class, students are taught that “many African Americans speak and use a form of English that is somewhat different from Standard English.” They also learn that “the rules of Black American English are functional to those who use them.”

Professor Martinez states that “Many teachers are unaware of the rules of Black American English.” But he does not blame white teachers. In fact, he says the blame “should not be placed upon the student or the teacher, but upon ‘unawareness.’”

Maurice believes that if we wish to succeed in our “No child left behind” efforts we can begin by “trying to understand the language spoken by African American children.” Maurice cautions that “not all 36 million African Americans choose to speak Black English, especially the educated middle and upper income blacks.”

I wasn’t surprised to hear that many “educated middle and upper income blacks” refrain from the use of Black English. But, then again, I wasn’t surprised the first time I heard that “more people are in prison despite the fact that crime is down.”

Maurice devotes dozens of pages of class notes to teaching white future teachers the specifics of Black English. It isn’t rocket science but it’s darned close. For example, Maurice teaches his students that while whites use terms like “This, that, them, these, and those” blacks often say “Dis, dat, dem, dese, and dose.” His notes say “There is a ‘duh’ sound substituted for the ‘th’ sound in the beginning of the word.

Actually, the “duh” sound was the student reaction to Professor Martinez’ lecture. There are some things so obvious that even education majors can learn them on their own.

Of course, if a white teacher is going to teach black kids, she needs to learn how to curse like they do. Here, Professor Martinez is brilliant. He informs us that while whites use the terms “mother” and “brother,” blacks often prefer to say “muvah” and “bruvah.” Maurice even gives a sample sentence: “My muvah cook grits.” But he cautions that when using profanity in conjunction with the “F-word” it is best to pronounce “mother” properly.

Well, I’ll be a muvah f----r! I mean, I’ll be a mother f-----r!

Maurice, the tenured education professor, also informs students that when using plurals it is not necessary to add an “s” in Black English. That’s why a paper costs “50 cent,” not “50 cents.” Is this making sense? Or do we say “making cent”?

Whites teachers learning black English will dumb them down to the students level. Liberals and wiggers must be synonymous

What's next, teaching prospective teachers how to wear their pants low, gold teeth, and their hat sideways? Maybe these prospective teachers should join a gang to better identify. Seriously, make no mistake. This is the concept of socialism. Do not bring those who are down, up. Bring those who are up, down. If I had a kid in that college, I'd be yanking them out with warp speed.

If they speak too intelligently, it will make the black kids feel bad.... We can't have that!

There are a large number of dialects in the U.S. but you don't see college profs attempting to "teach" them as a means of communication to non-dialect speakers.

Actually, it's unbelievably condescending. 99.9% of people who use a dialect are perfectly capable of understanding standard English. Most can even communicate in standard English if the reason is pressing enough. After all, how often will a dialect speaker lapse into street talk during a eulogy?

This guy is basically claiming that black children in bad schools and chaotic households are too dumb to learn standard English. :rolleyes:

That's what I had in mind when I made that statement. Seriously, this is why I can't stand a majority of the black community. They choose to be uneducated dolts. Hell, there are plenty of people of all races who choose to be uneducated dolts. But then here comes the libs who want all of us to go down to their level. Uh uh. If I'm in your neighborhood, then yeah, I'll speaks like you. But if you're in a general setting, you speaks like everybody else.

You have no idea how much grief I got as a kid because I properly use 'be' verbs.

I think its fair to admit that there is an accent afforded to African Americans (generalizing) based on their culture and history and roots which goes all the way back to when they learned English from their native dialects. Of course there is ignorance - but its still fair to admit that their history and dialects and accents have been passed on generation to generation as a method of speaking and an accent, at a minimum as an influence.. I forget what I watched (B.E.T.? LOL! j/k) but it was pretty thorough in exploring this. It makes sense to me that it would be that way. We all have our accents.

Saying, "ax," instead of, "ask," isn't an accent....

Very true. Sowell deals with that in his book BLACK REDNECKS AND WHITE LIBERALS.

What is funny is listening to white people try to talk that way. Thankfully Justin Timberlake dropped that but Marshall Mathers still thinks he's black and let's not forget one Rob Van Winkle. However, since I have an overwhelming amount of blacks on my housing unit, I tend to use some of their vernacular to express a point like saying stuff like "feel me?" and "you heard?" Stuff like that.

I occasionally have to ask a kid to clarify a slang term he or she uses, but most of the kids I work with speak one way with their homies and another way with professional adults they have to deal with, white or black.


I don't think it hurts a teacher to listen to the way the kids are speaking when they think adults aren't listening, but I don't think they need to take a class about how to understand what is essentially slang.
