There is an ongoing debate about whether African-Americans can/should speak standard English. Personally, I say that yes we should know how to speak standard English but when we are speaking amongst ourselves, I have no problem with African-Americans using Ebonics to communicate. I view it no differently than when I am at the mall and the Korean shop keeper converses with me in English, and turns to her brother and speaks to him in Korean.
Speaking of Korean, until I started digging for blogs of blacks living abroad, I had no idea that so many African-Americans/blacks taught in Asia. I recently found the blog of a sister living in Indonesia, I will add it later. I can only imagine the number of blacks in S. Korea who are teaching there, but don't blog. Below are two videos of sisters living in South Korea.
This is Leslie Benfied, an African-American who works for the Korean government as a translator. Benfield speaks Korean is flawlessly(tone and pronunciation).
The second younglady is from Cameroon don't have anymore info. S. Korean bloggers if you have any info on the two could you please pass it along.
