Wanted by the Drug Enforcement Administration: Ebonics translators.
YES that's right...the DEA is looking for nine people to translate some of the conversations they are hearing on the tapes of some wiretaps. Special Agent Michael Sanders said this...
"DEA's position is, it's a language form we have a need for. "I think it's a language form that DEA recognizes a need to have someone versed in to conduct investigations. And Ebonics is no longer spoken only by African-Americans. It crosses over geographic, racial and ethnic backgrounds. "The positions are available in Atlanta, Miami, New Orleans and even the Caribbean.
Sidenote: If they were really smart, they would just get Pookey off the street and give him a $100 for translating the conversation. I'm just saying. But hey, if you know someone looking for a gig, pass this along! :)
What do you all think?
