Speaking Proper Doesn’t Mean “Speaking White”

Messiah Toure,

All my life, I’ve felt empowered by vocabulary and being educated. However, there seems to be a correlation between being educated and being white. And a correlation, unfortunately, between being uneducated and being black. It’s a stigma that really needs to change, it’s entirely possible to be black and be educated. It’s entirely possible to be uneducated and white. We need to break those ideas.
