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."

Consisting of the words ebony and phonics. It is a language that has its roots in American slavery and is commonly associated with African Americans. In no way is it a sign of laziness or child like speech by its speaker. Ebonics has been popularized in the past 20 years by the introduction of rap and hip hop but is seen as a creole language comprised of African and English dialects.
My friends were going home Ebonics would translate into: Mah bros be headin to the heezee.
They came to meet me= They come meet me
They were eating= They was eating

Ebonics- are simply english words that have different meanings, and used most of the time in a different context, from what the "norm" would consider to be it's definition.
For example: Crib- this term usually will describe a bed for a baby. On the other hand the ebonical term would have the definition as being- a house, a home, or wherever you live.

Another example would be a popular word: Boo
Boo is known in the dictionary as a word used to express dissatisfaction or contempt, especially at a speaker or performer. However Boo in ebonics can mean a good friend, or a girlfriend. It is used a term of endearment.

All the other stuff you all are writing about is simply called ignorance and is not associated with ebonics in my book.

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.

Literally translated from "ebony" and "phonics", Ebonics is NOT slang, it is NOT an immediate label that categorizes a person's intelligence simply because they speak it, Ebonics is a Regional Vernacular that functions as a Middle to Older compostion of the English language; adding extra negatives, fluctuating tenses and simplifying past/present/future tenses. The Southern American Vernacular is the largest Accent Group in the United States and varies depending upon which regional dialect is in question. The term "Ebonics" has been misconstrued by media into having this reputation of being some "jungle-bunny language" that only non-intellectuals with violent tendencies are prone to use, when in actuality AAE (African American English) is nothing more than a sociocultural form of English that varies between cultures and regions wherein the Southern American English dialects are found.
Metathesised Form Examples: Graps (Grasp), Aks (Ask) / etc.

Dropping Copulas (most commonly recognized and associated with Ebonics): Who you? / Where you at? / Who he be? / Where he been? / You crazy! / Where you put it at? / She my sister. / etc.

Altered Syntax: Why they ain't growin'? / Who the hell she think she is? / Who you think you be? / etc.
