Vinson Cunningham:

THE CASE FOR BLACK ENGLISH
“Talking Back, Talking Black” (Bellevue), by John McWhorter

This article appears in other versions of the May 15, 2017, issue, with the
headline “You Don’t Understand.”

OT WAG: the reviewer's first is probably an interpretation of _Vincent_. I
can't feature a black man named in honor of the late United States Senator
Carl Vinson of Georgia.
