Question by : Where can I gain the credentials to be a court-appointed Ebonics translator? Are there university programs?
This is a serious question. I recently did jury duty and the judge offered us”language translation” if necessary. I asked her what the foreign language was and she answered “Ebonics”. During the trial, a courrt-appoiinted “translator” was there and translated a few phrases.
Example: “talkin trash” = lying

    I’d go ask the Court, I didn’t know it was still recognized as a language. Actually I think Cali was the only one that ever did call it a language. The rest of it call it lazy English, or street talk, which means it isn’t suitable for a Court of Law.

    ebonics = a racist way to keep minorities down

    Why not become an English teacher and help people with speaking issues
