A recent e-mail entitled “Ebonics”:
My name be Ebonies Li Herenandez, an AfricanHispanicAsiatic-American girl who just got an award for being the best speler in class. I got 67% on the speling test and 30 points for being black, 5 points for not binging drugs into class, 5 points for not bringing guns into class, and 5 points for not getting Pregnut during the cemester. It be hard to beat a score of 120%.. The white dude who sit next to me is McGee from the Bronx. He got A 94% on the test but no extra points on account of he have the same Skin color as the opressirs of 150 years ago. Granny ax me to thank all Dimocrafts and Liberals for suporting Afermative action. You be showing da way to true equality.

Wow. Just….. wow. Really? I see the point(s) you’re attempting to make, but really….? Why not just come right out and say what you mean:
