I remember reading African American novelist like Zora Neal Hurston, Alice Walker, and Toni Morrison. Despite the brillance of their subjects, and the depths of their imaginations...I didn't really enjoy their books because to me, they were difficult to read. This was particularly true of Zora Neal Hurston and her classic novel, "Their Eyes Were Watching God". This book was written in what we would classified as Ebonics. While I can understand the purpose was to make the book seem more geniune...it always seemed to me to be more work to do this. I noticed that several members on Destee also like to post in Ebonics. For those that do, I have some questions: Why do you like to post in Ebonics? Do you do it to be original, or is there another reason? Is is more effort to post this way? Does it concern you that some people (yes even black people) may not understand what you are writing?
