In the reading “Black children are verbally deprived” it talks about a certain misconceptions about African kids learning the English language in a incorrect way because of slang terms and different types of ascents of speech. In my opinion this is wrong there is no way of speaking the English language incorrectly. Every language has its ascents and most people understand each other. In the podcast they talked about how people get offended when people speak slang and people think that these people are not capable of certain jobs. One example of this would be a man that is with out ascent gets a job rather that some one with, which in my opinion is not fair.
