So, you're wrong on two fronts. Now, if you were to change your argument to, "He is not speaking the dialect that is most respected by most of those in power in the US," then you would be correct.

    Side note: your use of the term "ebonics" over AAVE is another indicator of your ignorance.
    you keep splitting hairs to avoid responding to the reality of the circumstance
    the man does not speak the predominant language of the community. if he had, you would not see his expression being the subject of ridicule within this thread
    poor language habits, like work habits, impairs economic advancement
    which is why expressions of acceptance of such language, as illustrated by the defense you are attempting to put up, undermines the efforts to motivate those with weak skills to enhance them

    good. then we agree is that this was an incident involving four juveniles, and that their race played no effect upon the incident

    Look, you need to either learn the difference between a language and a dialect or we're done. How do you expect me to have a conversation with someone about linguistics if they don't know the basics of it? I'm trying to work with you here.

    Parents that video is exactly why you move to small white towns...so crap like that is minimized if not eliminated from happening...you can't as a good parent allow your children to go to school with animals that haven't evolved enough to get along correctly in our civilized society.

    Watching that video infuriates me. If that had happened to my kid. We would stake these punks out catch them alone and then my son would get some justice the same way they gave it to that kid. Maybe with a baseball bat or tire iron...eye for an eye.Long prison sentences in those thugs future all on the taxpayers dole.

    No, and I dont believe they should walk away laughing from a vicious beating with a slap on the wrist.

    Society is right to demand lifelong protection from these "people".
    ocean I agree with you. As a parent I also would like my kids to be safe in school or on the school bus. However, what I am critiquing is the punishment level. How do we set the bar for "acceptible fighting" vs "agressive fighting". Don't get me wrong, they need to be punish but I don't think these kids were trying to kill or permanently harm him. Otherwise they would not have done it on a school bus in front of everybody. Plan and simple some kids are more aggressive then others.

    I think if the kid that was attack was bigger and stronger, we wouldn't be having this conversation.
