Ebonics is really the study of the rules applied to turn English into some uneducated sounding pseudo-language whose purpose is for the most part to insult and denigrate "Whitey." Here is what I learned in Ebonics 1 :
i) In any English word with a contraction, eliminate the apostrophe and any letters after it.
1) Is it alright if I rollerskate through the campus ?
English) Yes, it's alright
Ebonics) It OK
ii) In a word ending in "d," substitute "dt" or "oodt."
English) That's all very fine...
Ebonics) That all reeeal gooudt....
iii) In a word ending in "ore," eliminate everything after the first "o" and add an apostrophe.
English) I won't tell you again, please shut the door.
Ebonics) I ain tellin you no mo', shet de do' !!
iv) For suffixes with 2 identical consonants followed by "er," eliminate the "er."
English) That Negro was larger and was holding a pistol.
Ebonics) Mah nigga was bigga had his fingah on yo' trigga.
v) In general, most "er"s are dropped and replaced by "ah."
English) Tower of Power
Ebonics) Towah of Powah
vi) However, in the case of a plural, "ers" is replaced by "az."
English) Negroes
Ebonics) niggaz
Now, a brief poem :
They go my niggaz all up in da hooudt,
Niggaz be pimpin' just like dey shooudt,
Leroy drive his Caddy right into a dee-itch
'Cause his punk-ass homey is too much of a bee-itch
Sistah on the pipe she hit on da stem
Homeboy got his ass in jail ageein'
Got me a supakool layin' in da free-idge
Niggaz be flyin' high off'n da bree-idge
Sambo fucked up, he high on dat sherm
Bustin up a cap hey cuz got de germ

So you get the general idea...

A very crude dialect of the english language spoken by poorly educated negroes. Some white people known as wiggers attempt to imitate this form of speech to sound cool. Idiots.

A form of mental retardation characterised by inability to grasp the basics of human language.

Normal black person: "No, don't stare, Leroy. It's not their fault they can't conjugate verbs. It's the ebonics, dear."

A dialect of the English language that is used by individuals that, have difficulty pronouncing certain words, and/or, form a sentence using shortened words with improper verbs. Typically used by low class people but with no relation to wealth. Not a slang.

Has a relation to poor education but leans more towards laziness, if educated. Can be viewed upon as a quick way of making a statement. Became popular in the late 70's and early 80's by poorly educated people that touted an "accept me for me" type attitude.
Christy and me is goin to da sto, you be want'n somin. Nah, I done ate already but let me aks Ricky.

Tanya could you please stop using ebonics.

The usage of ghetto slang via social networks (Facebook, Myspace, AOL, Yahoo, MSN, ect.)
Most often used by people who can write properly but choose not to.
Examples of E-Bonics could be described by using total improper spelling, overusage of capitalization or punctuation, replacing letters with numbers or characters, using confusing abbreviations and most infamously the pound symbol and a short quote.
Examples of E-Bonics:

"@y mAyn3 d15 1$H b3en b0th3r1n Me a1l day"

"WATCHU BEN ON"

"SMH #ohsodamndisappointed"

A lame excuse in a pathetic attempt to explain away the fact that black students don't do as well in academics as Caucasian students. It was actually proposed in Oakland California that black students be taught in ebonics. In an absurd attempt to raise black students test scores.
UNBELIEVABLE!!!
