Code Switching and The Hate U Give: A Discussion

Do you know what code switching is? The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas provides a realistic depiction of it in the African American community.  I was intrigued by it and thought I’d have a go at sharing my thoughts out about them both.

As a person of color have you engaged in code switching? Tell me how in the comments. I’d love to hear from you.

As a white person who has lived abroad and knows how exhausting it is to try to operate in two languages, I have all the respect in the world for people who code switch all the time.
The Hate U Give is on my want-to-read list, though I have American Street up before it.
