is ebonics just a dialect for clownin around. like we say things that matter in almost normal english, then when we gotta say something funny we ebonics it up. no one takes that shit seriously, it's just goofspeak. Clown-talk.


Ebonics- is it for clowns? Or is it a Respectable Dialect of the American English Language? pls post reponses below

more than saying something "funny" in a particular way, which by th way is fetishizing black culture, ebonics has been adopted by the north american public as a complete vernacular based on pop culture references.

it's the same idea though, no one says fam or finna or YOLO seriously. it always has a layer of irony to it.

Yo fam, im always finna use ebonics seriously

Also, seriously, ebonics is as valid a dialect of American English as the bullshit that is Appalachian English

uhh i think most parts of ebonics are legitimate, un-ironic slang for black people until they're adopted by awkward white people trying to seem hip or funny

so you telling me someone thought "fam" wasn't funny/dumb sounding and they used it without 100% seriousness.  if you believe that then you're racist for thinking black people are that retarded

nah, there are people who go around 24/7 talking in lingo they learn from TV and the radio, in a serious attempt to 'be' that. sad but true!

Talking like extreme ebonics is a little different than people saying 'fam' and whatnot on apps though

no you're right but there ARE some recipients of this language who do take it seriously and their mission is to 'be' that person.

i hate to say it, but kaz is right.
but i live in the south so like some of my speech is p. much influenced by aave by default tbh
it's not unintelligible like scots though
glaswegian is so hard to understand

fam isn't even exclusively used by aave tho, but london is just as black and canada is filled with wiggers
