#Akfacts Ya heard?! Speak your dialect proudly, whether you speak GULLAH, PATOIS, CREOLE, “EBONICS” etc. While in this day and age, we have to learn the standard form to communicate with others, know that this ENGLISH language or any “standard form” is not superior to our unique cultural expressions. Never forget that it was FORCED down our ancestors throats while they had to forget their native tongues. Dialects aren’t an indicator of your intelligence (contrary to what people think), it has its own system just like any standard language. I know so many kids who get beaten for not “speaking properly” 🙄🙄🙄🙄 tell me I’m lying lol.........Sidenote: S/O to my garifunas who are fighting to preserve their language.
