But You Don’t Talk Black

You don’t sound black. As in you don’t talk black. What is talking black though? How can an entire race be simplified to one way to act, talk, or look? I’m an African American woman but because I articulate and use proper English I don’t “talk” black. It’s one thing to grow up in the suburbs or go to a school that has majority of white people, but it’s another thing to be looked upon as if you don’t “fit” in with your “culture” because how the way you speak words and form your sentences. I’m not the only one who notices this problem. In this TED Talks episode featuring Jamila Lyiscott she speaks on how she talks English and is a “tri-longued orator”.
