Ebonics is the language of African-American Ancestry, struggle, pain, intelligence, love, mercy, understanding, survival, resistance, and enjoyment. Ebonics, represents that warm place in the hearts of many of us African-Americans, when we think about our Ancestors, who could not speak nor understand English, but struggled to speak a language they were not taught formally for hundreds of years. Ebonics allows us to connect with our Ancestors through language. Ebonics is a language that is celebrated, enjoyed, and spoken intentionally by me, because it is easy on my tongue, fun, creative, and saves time. I 'respect' Standard English, but I 'LOVE' Ebonics and Slang, because they are a part of me - a decent and meaningful part of MY history, My culture, and MY family. My Ancestors spoke Ebonics while they cried in pain, but now, I can speak Ebonics while I smile with joy.
Standard English Example:
Question: What do you need to do?
Answer: I need to take the time, to gather the information, and then double check it, to see if I am correct in my facts; Then I have to package it and take it to the Post Office, so that I can get it insured, to make sure I don't lose my valuable work.

Ebonics Example:
Question: What cha' gawn do?
Answer: Lawd ha' murcy! I nee' ta git dis stuff togetha
and take it ta da Post office, and git me some insurance!

An effort to create a "new" language based off of the English language. Many changes have been made so that it can be different. Words that end in "oor" change to "oh". Words with "ing" change to "in'". Words that are next to each other in the sentence are sometimes combined. Also known as "ghetto" talk.
Ebonics: “Man foo, i think dis busta needs to get his caps out dis club 'afore i drop em in the street.”

English: “I think that this man should evacuate his friends from this drinking establishment before I murder him and lay his dead corpse in a public driving location.”

Ebonics: “Yo son, you best not talk to me like dat dog, im liable to be splittin some wigs up in dis mug if you keep disrespectin like that...so ignant..”

English: “Hello acquaintance. I would appreciate it if you didn't speak to me in that way. If you continue, I might start firing fast moving projectiles into people's skulls in this general vicinity. You are very ignorant.”

Ebonics: “Man, he dropped a dime on dat whip. i thinks he gots that on tha corna lot of big g's auto. i gots to pimp that chrome.”

English: “That fellow spent a lot of cash on his automobile. I believe that he processed the transaction in the main gangsters automobile store. I sure would love to drive that fine automobile.”

Ebonics: “dem ho's keep tryin to buck my rides but they kno that i ain't givin em they nickels if they still kick it off the heezy and bounce. for real tho.”

English: “My female prostitutes continue to hijack my cars, but they know that if they keep doing this, they will not receive their 1/25 gram of their cocaine if they keep leaving their houses. This is true.”

A word coined by wishy washy liberal buffoons in Oakland California to describe the dialect of the typical Oakland black person. They made up the word to justify teaching black people how to talk like black people, so the students in Oakland schools would pass at least one course.

African-American slang which is not usually readily understood by caucasions.
Ebonics "My milkshake brings all the boys to the yard, they're like, it's better than yours, damn right its better than your, i could teach you, but I'd have to charge.

English "My frozen dairy treat brings all the male gender to the grassy area in the front of my residence. They say it is superior to yours. Yes, they are correct, it is far superior than yours. I could pass along this knowledge, but there would be a fee.
