FOR AGES AFRICAN AMERICANS HAVE BEE MANIPULATING THE ENGLISH LANGUAGE, WHICH APPEARS TO BE ACCEPTED BOTH THROUGH LITERATURE AND VERBAL SPEAKING. IN THE 21ST CENTURY THE EDUCATIONAL SYSTEM IS FACED WITH A TASK OF REFORMING A LANGUAGE SUPPOSIDLY CALL "BLACK ENGLISH" OR "EBONY PHONICS," DEPICTING WHAT IS WIDELY KNOWN AS EBONICS. AFRICAN AMERICANS AND OTHER ETHNIC GROUPS HAVE BEEN SPEAKING BROKEN ENGLISH FOR SEVERAL YEARS. THE USE OF EBONICSS HAS BECOME A CONTRAVERSIAL ISSUE IN THE WORLD TODAY.
THE OAKLAND SCHOOL DISRTRICT RAISED THE ISSUE OF USING EBONICS IN THE CLASSROOM TO HELP STUDENTS RECOGNIZE AND USE PROPER ENGLISH. HOWEVER, THESE ISSUES HAVE ALMOST BECOME AN UNCONTROLLABE MATTER, BECAUSE THE USE OF EBONICS IS MISREPRESENTED. MANY SEEM TO THINK TEACHING EBONICS IS VERY HELPFUL, WHILE OTHERS DISAGREE. THE REFORMATION OF EBONICS IS NOT AND WILL NOT BE A POSITIVE PATH FOR THE EDUCATIONAL SYSTEM TO PURSUE. THE PROCESS OF ATTEMPTING TO TEACH STANDARD ENGLISH PRACTICES THROUGH \'BLACK ENGLISH\', EBONICS, IS A BAD IDEA BECAUSE: IT IS NOT A UNIVERSIAL LANGUAGE, IT DEPICTS ONLY ONE ETHNICITY AND IT IS FOREVER CHANGING.
A DIALECT, WHICH IS NOT UNIVERSIAL, WILL STAGNATE STUDENTS RATHER THAN ENHANCE THE EDUCATTIONAL PROCESS. IN LIKE MANNER, A DIALECT WHICH DEPICTS ONE ETHNICITY WOULD BE A DIASATER FOR PEOPLE OF ALL ETHNICITIES. THERE MAY BE SEVERAL DIFFERENT DIALECTS IN ONE AREA OR CULTURE AND THEREFORE CONTROLLS IN DEVELOPING A LANGUAGE FOR ALL ETHNIC GROUOPS WOULD BE SOCIALLY AND ECONOMICALLY IMPOSSIBLE.
THE YOUNGER GENERATION USES MANY FORMS OF COOLOQUIIALISM. NEEDLESS RTO SAY, THE LANGUAGE OE THE YOUTH CHANGE FORM CITY TO CITY, GROUOP TO GROUOP AND IN MANY OTHE WAYS. DIFFERENT GROUPS HAVE USED BROKEN ENGLISH THROUGHOUT THE YEARS AS A MEANS OF EXPRESSING THEIR OWN THOUGHTS AN DGRIEVANCES. THEIS HAS BEEN EXHIBITED DTHROUGH SPIRITUAL SONGS DURING SLAVERY, AS WELL AS, THE CURRENT USE OF \'RAP.\'
IT STANDS TO CHANCE THAT IF PARENTS OF THE YOUNGER GENERATION HAD BEEN TAOUGHT PROPER STANDARD ENGLISH, OR UNIVERSIALLANGUAGES \'BLACK ENGLISH/EBONICS\' MAY NOT HAVE BEE WITHIN THE BOUNDS OF POSSIBILITY. IT IS CONCEIVABLE TO SAY THE EDUCATIONAL SYSTEM IS ATTEMPTING TO RIGHT A WRONG WHICH HAS EXISTED
