But I also realize the prestige dialect is necessary to communicate in business settings, and narrow minded idiots judge me incorrectly when I don't say things like them. AAVE is a linguistically valid and accepted form of English. If it became the standard people would have to speak it in order to be considered "articulate." With language if you understand the idea that someone is trying to convey why get bogged down in the language they use? If you're about communicating and not lording your superior command of English over people, you'd just translate what they say and respond in kind. No big deal.
