THE BLACKLINGUAL MOVEMENT IS ABOUT BREAKING STIGMAS
Black dialects are "ghetto" & "uneducated"
Black dialects like Ebonics English, French Creole, and Dominican / Carribean Spanish are often viewed as “broken” versions of their standard languages.
Black people don’t speak more than 1 language
Especially in the United States (because only approximately 4% of African Americans are bilingual), people don’t believe Black people speak anything other than English.
Black people just aren’t good at language
Because people think Black dialects are not “real” language, they believe Black people do not have good language skills.
