    One thought on “Sista Tongue”

    1. This book really uncovers the dichotomy of languages and how we judge based on how others speak. But like the adage, we should remain mindful of how this type of stereotyping leads to incorrect conclusions.

    2. Reading challenge categories:-book with a family member term in the title-book you can finish in a day-book that's under 150 pages-book by a person of color

    3. a brief, multimodal (ish) text concerning Hawaiian literacies, the use of pidgin, the imposition of standard english, and the contestation for identity and viability in between. excellent.
