Doesn’t Google Translate Ebonics?

The DEA is looking to hire translators who can interpret wiretaps in 114 different languages. Including Ebonics. And you thought the term vanished after being the butt of jokes in 1996. Maybe they should consider hiring Barbara Billingsly, who so famously translated Jive in the movie Airplane!. As she said, “Chump don’ want no help, chump don’ git no help. Jive ass dude don’ got no brains anyhow!”
