Legit dialect, or too soon?

At what point do we stop wincing and just say OK new dialect of English here? When does Jewish English become a thing in the way that Jewish German became a thing (viz. Yiddish)

Every local community has its own dialect. Teenage boys. Wall Street power barons. Inner City blacks. KJ Jews. 

Use of those dialects is appropriate within the community it's not broken English or evidence of weak brain power. It just means you were never taught SWE, the dialect Americans use for cross-community and public conversations
