Jonathan Capehart Aces Dylan Ratigan's DEA-Inspired Ebonics Test (VIDEO)

by Jeremy Taylor, posted Aug 25th 2010 10:30PM
Washington Post editorial writer Jonathan Capehart was on 'The Dylan Ratigan Show' (weekdays, 4PM ET on MSNBC) to discuss a story about how the DEA is seeking to employ Ebonics translators to help them interpret wire taps between drug dealers who speak in the vernacular.

Although Capehart isn't fluent in Ebonics, he told Ratigan the circumstances under which he does use Ebonics -- when he's with close friends, when he's among family or when he's had too much to drink. Then he agreed to take an Ebonics test

Capehart generally performed well on the test ... although he was improbably tripped up by the correct definition of "bling-bling."
