They're looking for people in Atlanta to help translate the slang language, leavint The Smoking Gun to say what's "appropriate":
"Ebonics has widely been described as a nonstandard variant of English spoken largely by African Americans. John R. Rickford, a Stanford University professor of linguistics, has described it as "Black English" and noted that "Ebonics pronunciation includes features like the omission of the final consonant in words like ‘past' (pas' ) and ‘hand' (han'), the pronunciation of the th in ‘bath' as t (bat) or f (baf), and the pronunciation of the vowel in words like ‘my' and ‘ride' as a long ah (mah, rahd)."
It's hilarious to me. Will Ebonics become a class kids can take in school?! COLLEGE, even?! I'd so sign up and get an A++! Maybe they'll even offer an AP version.
To add to the laughter that is this job posting, take a listen to a promo for the job: [NSFW]
I wonder how it pays... If it's good, I'm OUTTA HEA! Or... I'll tell DJ X to take the job... He's in ATL, after all.
