Oh, and may I add that I should have written "five-years old child" in the plural in my previous post.
The distinction among who, whom and whose has become merely an affect. If you want to sound like you are 'of the people', you should say, "I gave it to whom", because it is the object of a preposition. But if you want to sound like a normal person, just say, "I gave it to him/her", which is not a direct object, but is correct in common usage.
Cannot is only accepted in the U.K. It is not considered to be correct in the U.S., Canada, and Australia.
I think the problem is not that African Americans are trying to change the language, as you say, Sam, but that African Americans have been speaking a valid version of English all along that is yet to be recognized as correct by privileged, white English speakers.
Wow, what a douchebag you are, Entomophagist!
