Y'all have a good day now ya hear?? [View all]

Isn't it funny how a simply quote like that makes you invision a southerner or "Red Neck" just by the words that they used? You would never suspect that quote to come from someone like Bill Gates or Donald Trump. Why not? I'm sure all of us out there have used words like y'all. It's a good word!! A conjunction. It's not a racist word. Suitable for everyone!! So why is it that we expect certain groups of people to use a certain way of speaking? How can we judge someone's intelligence or back ground from the way the write or speak? Isn't that being judgmentitive? Bias? Racist? I'm sure we've all been guilty of not using proper punctuation or of having a long day and not using "proper English". Or maybe we're feeling a bit lazy and decide to "lol" or "OMG" at something. I know I do!! And why can't I do so with out someone commenting like -"you're under educated". Or "you can't live in Vermont because your tone is all wrong". ORRR "you're a troll because you're posting at such a late hour". Never mind the fact that I'm an insomniac who works second/third shift!!! And some one PLEASE TELL ME WHAT "TROLL" IS!! Anyway, your thoughts? Thanks!
