Appalachian English - Look at it as just another Language

I came across this video today which I think deserves a BIG SHARE. I have encountered problems so many times using my native language.

It's as if we have to be bi-lingual and bi-cultural. The problem occurs when those not from Appalachia do not recognize it as a dialect and put it down as being inferior when really is it just another type of communication and is another language. Nothing inferior about it to most of us from here. I understand we have to communicate but I get really tired of being put down as stupid for using my native language. Ya'll should share this video with your children and grand children especially if they have the "dialect".
