Subject: Re: Popular Ebonics
Newsweek, Jan. 13th, has two pieces in the very end of the magazine.
There is also a blurb in the "Conventional Wisdom Watch" that appears on
Ebonics - Goofy debate's silver lining: dissing
"black English" no longer taboo.
So much for the articles on pp. 78-80.

Is Newsweek being sarcastic here? Using "dissing" in this blurb? If not,
I'm completely stunned.
