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.

Contrary to ignorant posts on this website, Ebonics is NOT mere slang. Rather it is a fully-formed, complex, rule-governed system of language that has specific rules for pronunciation, vocabulary, and word order, all of which operate as a complex grammatical system inherited, in part, from West African languages. Attempts to imitate the speech patterns by those who don’t understand the complexities of the grammatical system of Ebonics not only sound ridiculous but also result in usages that are downright linguistically incorrect and culturally demeaning.
Examples of rule-governed ebonics features:
Habitual “be”: He be mean to me. (meaning: he is habitually mean to me.)
He mean to me. (meaning: he is being mean to me right now.)
She BEEN married. (stressed “been” meaning she’s been married a long time and still is.)
Multiple negative inversion: Can’t nobody beat ‘em.

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".

What happens when crackers try to put a label on Black jive.
Cracker: "Johnson, I believe that colored fellow just called me a muthafukin, skinny-ass, honky."

Cracker too: "Pay no attention to him, Charlie. He was just speaking his ebonics in saying you are a rather thin, Anglo-Saxon, who does the deed with his mother."

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.
