   This harebrained scheme deserves to be derided(and roundly dismissed, get it?), but not because "then the Jews will start asking for something." No one would deny that what is known, among those who are racially prejudiced, as "ebonics" deserves to be rained with grammatical and linguistic disapproval. If we associate that with African Americans, it does nothing but perpetuate more painful stereotypes, about what is really the result of socioeconomic apartheid and oppression.
   Contrary to popular belief, most blacks do not omit auxiliary verbs, address general audiences as "Hey bio*ches," or deliver such stunningly witty one liners as "Hey, homie. What be hanging?" In other words, "Don't be doing that."
   Preach it, brother!
