Default chicano accented english

In order to be accepted and respected by the white society, it is imperative that we master "standard english" when dealing with whites in academia, the workplace etc. Look at the major news agencies such as eyewitness news. Our gente have become a major force on the televised daily news. These brothers and sisters only speak standard english and do not use chicano accented slang such as "for reals", etc. This is embarrasing for all chicanos. However, some of our gente feel that white-boy english will never do. This of course is pure ignorance. By mastering standard english we gain new skills, we don't compromise our dignity. Any comments?

For someone who claims we should master standard English, has a lot of grammar errors in his message along with the title of this thread. Just saying...

Very true my friend. I still have a ways to go improving on my own English skills. But since I seemed to only bring out criticism in your response to my thread, I assume I must have insulted you. That was not my intension.

No. I think it's humorous. You're some random guy who comes out of nowhere and assumes we're bums just because we have Chicano in the title of the forum's url. Many of us are going to college or have college degrees along with careers or owning our own business.

I would recommend that you get to know us before assuming the worst.

In Europe it's normal for people to know several languages and it's not frowned upon or even taken from schools like here. As long as a person shows the intentions of speaking a language different than his/her's native language to communicate with someone, people have no right to judge how it sounds or if they fuck up.

Proper English and Spanish should only be even thought about when it comes to writing. People speak how they speak, and some of my favorite literature has "regular" people talk...Steinbeck and Twain come to mind. All I'm saying is writing can be learned and worked on, but speaking comes from environment and you're gonna talk what you hear all around you because that's how you grew up.
