Again, Sista Souljah, I don't see ANYTHING negative about Black English. When I said it's not standardized, I mean thatin the same sense that English itself wasn't standardized prior to the 1500s. There is no agreed upon standard for every point of grammar and syntax in black English. Depending on who the speaker is, even the future tense is different. I brought up the standardization issue to point out why it would not make an effective teaching tool. It needs to be standardized before...

No, I'm not saying that I think it's negative. Like I said, I speak it, and I speak standard English. I'm using other people's opinions as example. If THEY believe it's negative, what sense does it make for THEM to use the term 'Black English' and identify with it? I don't like associating myself with that which is IMO negative, do you? I know those other people are imitating. We ARE the most often imitated when it comes to whatever they may classify as hip-hopish. It's popular and catchy.

Re: The Myth of Matriarchal Prehistory: Why An Invented Past Won't Give Women A Future

I really haven't developed a forman opinion. However, I'm beginning to lean towards believing that it is a myth. At most, I believe that there may have been a time in prehistory where men and women shared equal status. But a society where women ruled, and held a higher social status than men, is beginning to seem very far-fetched. What sparked my interest is how we like to put a European tag on patriarchalism. What about Asians, Australians, South Americans... and all the other continents.

The purpose is to focus on the legitimate claim of Africans in America that have been enslaved here, built this country, and are due reparations.
