The Vernacular of Privilege: "Those who come to school speaking standard English as their language of nurture are in fact really nothing more than lucky. They are the possessors of a privilege that is just as insidious and just as invisible to most of them as the advantage of their own whiteness is to many white students and the advantage of their social status is to many middle- and upper-class students. And it is in just as desperate need of critical inquiry."
This is true, and HAS happened to me. ..my adrenaline kicked in & I ran so fast I left my friend struggling to keep up- she never teased me about being a slow runner ever again. HA!(but that was one of the scariest nights of my life..)
