Incline Your Ear

We're watching a video in my 7th grade art class about folk art. There's a section about Mexico and Catholic art made from recycled materials. Here's a conversation between two boys in response to learning that a majority of Mexicans are Catholic: (keep in mind, most of my students don't get much further than North Birmingham or the projects.)

Terry: " Is we Catholisms? Mer.Corle,Mer.Corle! Is we Catholisms?"
Malieke replies to him, "Is you Catholic?"
Terry says "No way man I ain't gettin' shot!"
Terry: " Mer.Corl what is we? Is we Catholisms?"  
Maleike answers "No boy we's Christianity, they teach you that in school man!,don't you know anything!"
