How did the Wardine chapter make the cut?
>>
Because it's hilarious

If you didn't feel like shit when Wardine done be cry you aren't human.

Because if you don't think Wardine is a believable character, you've never seen an uneducated hood rat.

Having lived around them, DFW did not do them an injustice.

And I think it's hinted at that Wardine is "slow" anyway.
>>
>>7571977

The same reason anything in that book made the cut. They wanted a 900 page book.
>>
>>7571977
Cause the editor is afraid of Roy Tony
>>
>>7572024
Wardine is not be the narrator of that part dood
she just be cry
>>
>>7571977
Why was DFW so bad at writing in "ebonics"? Not even the most retarded niggers talk like that.
>>
>>7572036
It was actually edited quite severely. Apparently some really good passages got cut.
>>
>>7572108
He was having a laff
>>
>>7572041
kek

also just btw I've lived in the poor black south and that chapter was pretty good actually.
>>
>>7572108
this. This shows just how white DFW was. It's like he'd never been around a poor black person
>>
I'm sorry if this sounds like I'm channeling my inner SJW, but that chapter was appalling. A disgrace. I can't imagine there are actually black people who speak like that, even though that was clearly what Wallace was hinting at. Although, I admit, I did laugh at the name Wardine. He might as well have called her LaShannara.
>>
>>7572280
Pro-tip: there ARE people that talk like that.
>>
>>7572280
>I can't imagine there are actually black people who speak like that
And I can't imagine there are people who split their dicks.
>even though that was clearly what Wallace was hinting at
People been saying it could just be a retard. Was it socially acceptable to make fun of retards in the nineties?
>>
>>7572297
>Was it socially acceptable

Does being "socially acceptable" even matter in literature?
>>
>>7572280
>>7572235
>>7572108
I'll bet all of you are white lol
>>
>>7572350
Obviously. We read a book.
>>
>>7572305
No buy people on /lit/ pretend it does so they can feel persecuted
