A very ignorant way to pronounce English words; which makes the speaker sound stupid. It is a mix of Southern jargon, foreign terms from places like England, and terms made popular by rappers. Words like "Teeth" are replaced with "Teefh" or "Teefhis." Most words with "Th" in the end of the them are replaced with "TF" ( pronounced like Tee-Fifth). There is also completely made up words like "Finna." Finna meaning I'm fixing to, which is also a form of Ebonics; as "Fixing to" is an incorrect way to say "I'm getting ready to."
The main problem with Ebonics, besides the ignorant stigma that cames along with it; is that most rappers and people that live in so-called Ghettos make up their own words. This has lead to an ever growing list of mispronounced words that ultimately cause these people to be viewed as thugs, gang members, criminals, and just plan stupid. Ebonics thrives in a world where most people want to look, speak, and act just like everyone else. The "Thug Look" is king of this world. Ebonics has the major effect of creating a negative stereotype for black men, women and Wiggers (A Wigger being a white person that so desperately wants to be Black). Ebonics has also caused people that speak in Ebonics-Only, to have their career choices limited. As employers view these people as being less intelligent and with the stereotype of being a thug. Even though these views are often times wrong, an impression of a person leads to a characterizing of them. An impression is the only way to judge a person without knowing more about them. So if the first impression is of a person that seems unable to speak in an intelligent manner; then that person will be judge solely on that. At a job interview the first impression is the ONLY impression. Ebonics has also lead to an overall stereotyping that American's are stupid. Rap is the major driving force behind Ebonics. Rappers tend to be pushed by record labels into a category of "The Status Quo." The Status Quo being the same generic look, sound and general act of being a thug. Leaving most rappers to be a carbon-copy of each other. Since so many people want to fit in, they follower rappers in anyway they can and that includes the ignorant speak of the "Street". Many African America's refuse to let go of Ebonics, as they see it as part of their Black Culture. While many view Ebonics as part of their Culture, their is a large group of intellectual African America's that view this as the core reason why black men and women receive negative stereotypes. The idea is that since white men and women often times have a limited understanding of Black Culture; that they get the wrong idea of the race from TV and Music. It should also be pointed out that White men and women have their own stereotypes. Rednecks are viewed as ignorant, fanatical, racist. So any segment of a population , no matter how small, can have consequences for everyone in that group.

Ebonics sound so stupid!

is an actual dialect of english. just like any other dialect of english it will be slightly different from english. Is does have SYNTAX. Verbal marking, its own phonological system different from english. This is not what blacks do to not learn english. Read a book. African American English by Lisa Green. You will be informed or maybe not if you don't understand linguistics. By the way, there are many variations of English. Do you know which one you are speaking?
my examples are too extensive so I will put normal ones

Terms for females in ebonics
Bopper, dime, honey, hot girl, ma, shorty, wifey
These are labels for females used by males. If there was no systematic way of doing things then a female would be able to say these things and not seem a little odd. As a female it would be odd to label a girl as a "shorty".

derived from "urbanics" which is an unused word for the lingual pattern of paraphrased english speaking people of a lower class. Ebonics; is the ethnocentric translation which is later sold to the masses as a legitamite lingual classification to only represent another effort to condition people to percieve the white culture as civilized and all others as savages.
"What did that wigger say to the nigger? They must be using ebonics."

ebonics is the way of speaking used primarily by poor black people in the getto. saying that this style of speach is used by the ignorant is actually racist, as it is saying that black people are ignorant, (not true) based on their speech. all it is is new words to express your meaning and dismissing the speech as ignorant is an insult to an entire culture
frontin', wilin', f'sho, muhfucka, etc is an example of ebonics

Was to be an educational tool to help black and latino school age children to grasp Standard American English (SAE). Once it was picked up by a biased media that made certain to manipulate this into a racial controversy (remember how they manipulated us during the beginning of the Iraqi occupation?) So the whole premise of ebonics was beaten down because we don't want no ghetto kids to start speaking SAE and having more opportunities and gettin' all uppity with the white folks. WORD!
Ebonics: I dont be havin'nothin'

SAE: I don't have opportunities to advance myself
