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

It's a mix between Ebony and Phonics, and though people say its racist, it was truly meant for the African American culture. Ebony is the, I guess, "Proper" way to title Africans.

The true definition of ebonics is a made up version of english
so that we can reclaim a new language that was taken away from
us in slavery. Even though blacks have made up ebonics and other cultural things, everyone in america tries to copy it. Thus we can never have anything we say or create truely ours, because everyone wants a peice of the black/african pie.
It's time iz be goin ta da mutha lan (Africa). I ain't been dair in 450 years. Fo'get ebonics let's speak swahili,bantu, or other tribal languages.

you do not deserve an example
