Actually I think she brings up valid concerns, The way you talk makes a huge impression on the public and when I hear someone talk like that I think thug. Whether it is a cultural thing or not it still does not have a positive sound for those that do not talk like that. Here in NM you can have a hispanic accent but still sound educated and you do not hear those that speak well say what's up essay! So it maybe cultural but still I think gangsters and thugs when I hear ppl talk like that and that is what the image of the bullies is turning into. Gangster looking men (of any color) with their pants hanging off their butt and rap music playing on the websites. To the John Q public it looks like ppl with this breed is up to no good. This is not just a bully problem it is also most bully breeds including the APBT
. They have in many ways become a status and money making business. I have not heard but just a few minutes of the show but if that is the way it is, do you think it portrays a positive image about our breed if lets say a senator is listening to your show? What if they are looking for info to decide BSL
shouldn't we have our best foot forward? I'm just saying for the general public who do judge ppl in who they look and speak it can give a wrong message. I know I can use some slang when I talk but when I am out at an event or doing a news interview I make sure that I represent myself and business in an educated manner.
I am not trying to put anyone person down I am just saying it makes a difference to John Q public how you speak and that senator who might be listening.
Of course JMO
