STUPID AND PROUD OF IT
There is nothing wrong with being uneducated. Many people are not lucky enough to acquire a good education. Many uneducated people know their limitations, work their butts off and are quite successful.
Some people are not stupid, have an opportunity for a quality education and yet choose to be stupid and uneducated. These people are proud of being stupid. They revel in their poor education. If they have a choice of using correct English or uneducated gutter English, they make a conscious effort to use gutter English. They will even loudly proclaim their stupidity.
If asked a simple question like “Who is the Vice President of the United States?” They laugh and respond without embarrassment “Ah, I don’t know any of dat shit!”
Ask, “What is the square root of 16?” and you get the response, “Ah, I never paid no attention to math and shit.”
Enquire, “Do you know what country borders the United States to the north?” and the answer is, “I don’t know; if I ever have to go there then I’ll probably know.”
Probably know? Really?
If given the choice of saying “I fell down,” or “I had fallen down,” why not just say “I had fell down”?
Why would you ask, “Why did you go there,” when you can ask, “Why you go dere?”
It is OK to be stupid. It happens.
It is understandable if you were never afforded the opportunity to receive a quality education. Many are not that fortunate.
It is not ok to choose to be dumb as a stump or talk like an idiot, and be proud of it.
At leastest that be me opinion.
