Was to be an educational tool to help black and latino school age children to grasp Standard American English (SAE). Once it was picked up by a biased media that made certain to manipulate this into a racial controversy (remember how they manipulated us during the beginning of the Iraqi occupation?) So the whole premise of ebonics was beaten down because we don't want no ghetto kids to start speaking SAE and having more opportunities and gettin' all uppity with the white folks. WORD!
Ebonics: I dont be havin'nothin'

SAE: I don't have opportunities to advance myself
