I remember a kid named Emonte (from little Rock) transferred to my middle school.(and this was years ago) Nobody understood a word this kid was saying for a few weeks at least. Are there certain speech patterns that are unique to Arkansans. Language is colloquial, of course, but I've never known much about mid-south dialects (if that's even what he had)

Yep, you spotted the SJW arriving to stir trouble.

(I in the old days, we had other names for those with nothing better
to do than to stir up racial strife, but I don't want to get banned )

What is Arkansan for thin skinned knee-jerk reactionary?

I thought OP's question was legitimate and I don't see any racial or controversial wording in his question (unless maybe he edited it?).

I was kind of hoping to learn something about Arkansas culture, but I guess not if the mere mention of the possibility of Arkansans having characteristic speech patterns or vocabulary is such a touchy subject.

ABQ, the op is a forum troll who has been making multiple accounts daily, usually trying to start controversy within threads. Mods have been deleting his accounts but this one remains for now. He even responded to himself with his newest account, like he often does.
