Hey Marley! Thank you for taking the time to read my article I really appreciate it.
I'm sorry about your experience in elementary school they had no right to associate AAVE terminology with being slow. Absolutely appalling!
I feel like white people are not aware that using AAVE terms is stealing from black culture which I why I wrote about it. To educate younger generations and others to respect groups who have been marginalized. Feel free to share this article as much as possible.
Thank you for sharing, have a great Thanksgiving!
