The main problem with Ebonics, besides the ignorant stigma that cames along with it; is that most rappers and people that live in so-called Ghettos make up their own words. This has lead to an ever growing list of mispronounced words that ultimately cause these people to be viewed as thugs, gang members, criminals, and just plan stupid. Ebonics thrives in a world where most people want to look, speak, and act just like everyone else. The "Thug Look" is king of this world. Ebonics has the major effect of creating a negative stereotype for black men, women and Wiggers (A Wigger being a white person that so desperately wants to be Black). Ebonics has also caused people that speak in Ebonics-Only, to have their career choices limited. As employers view these people as being less intelligent and with the stereotype of being a thug. Even though these views are often times wrong, an impression of a person leads to a characterizing of them. An impression is the only way to judge a person without knowing more about them. So if the first impression is of a person that seems unable to speak in an intelligent manner; then that person will be judge solely on that. At a job interview the first impression is the ONLY impression. Ebonics has also lead to an overall stereotyping that American's are stupid. Rap is the major driving force behind Ebonics. Rappers tend to be pushed by record labels into a category of "The Status Quo." The Status Quo being the same generic look, sound and general act of being a thug. Leaving most rappers to be a carbon-copy of each other. Since so many people want to fit in, they follower rappers in anyway they can and that includes the ignorant speak of the "Street". Many African America's refuse to let go of Ebonics, as they see it as part of their Black Culture. While many view Ebonics as part of their Culture, their is a large group of intellectual African America's that view this as the core reason why black men and women receive negative stereotypes. The idea is that since white men and women often times have a limited understanding of Black Culture; that they get the wrong idea of the race from TV and Music. It should also be pointed out that White men and women have their own stereotypes. Rednecks are viewed as ignorant, fanatical, racist. So any segment of a population , no matter how small, can have consequences for everyone in that group.

Back in the pre-1860's, when the Street Ape population was controlled properly, there were very little instances of violence against humans. Sadly, it was only up until this time period that the Street Apes were actually useful for something. Today, like the feral pig is decimating the unpopulated environment in Australia, the Street Ape is decimating and destroying every large urban setting in the US. The Street Ape has had almost no impact on rural America, because the government feeding stations for the Street Ape are almost exclusively located in inner cities.
It's blatantly obvious that the Street Ape population needs to be controlled, and the species definatly should not be allowed to continue to roam freely amongst humans. The Street Apes should be kept in zoos and in research facilities where they can possibly once again be useful to humans.
