Acronymed from African American Vernacular English, is an American English dialect uniquely spoken in African-American communities. Its origins stems from Old Southern American English dialects, which themselves originate from Southern English and Scots-Irish accented immigrants to the American South in the 17th century. Though more recently related to the Appalachian English dialect and Cajun Vernacular English, it also contains West African grammatical structures and pronunciations originating from black African slaves in the American South. Given its origin along the Southern US coast, it became widespread across America with the migration of freedmen from former slaving ports, plantations, and ghettos into Northern and Western states. Now in the 20th century, the dialect has branched and diversified as African American communities have cemented themselves across America over the centuries and decades; though it is still typified by its distinguishable southern drawl.
AAVE is a uniquely American creation that has been transformed over the course of many decades. It's a thoroughly developed muscle of a resilient, disenfranchised people.

AAVE, which is an acronym for African American Vernacular English or in other words, Black Vernacular English (BVE) Known outside of the academic and sociophonologic setting as "Ebonics", AAVE is a dialect that hails from West African linguistics.
It's not "ghetto talk", what she's speaking is a dialect called AAVE and it does not reflect her learning capacity.

Fuck wrong with y'all stupid ahh kids?

Any black person alive today knows good and damn well their grandparents never said "bussin, clout, simp, lit, presha, turnt, turn up, vibin" or any other modern slang besides "trippin" & "period" which the latter has been used by mainly all races throughout the English-speaking world.

Maybe stop smoking all dat mf weed and you'd realize that shit. That's y'all problem. Too mf high to actually use ya damn brain & think. But you just repeat what you've heard bc one if these trick ass hoes or dumbo ass niggas said it.

GenZ came up with this shit. Watch any black stand up comic or tv show from the 90s & back. You hear none of these words used at all. Not even the millennials. GenZ did create it. You could argue that Black GenZ created it, but it ain't been around forever. Stupid ahh kids.

Some of y'all find any reason to just be a bitch towards white folks & it's lame asf. Who tf cares tbh. Slang is slang. We all know how it's supposed to be used.

Some of y'all black ppl love to gatekeep. But dat shit racist than a mf. Y'all let two grown black women scissor each other on stage and call dat shit artistic but some of y'all mf calling Dr. King a mf coon?

I'm gettin beside myself. My bad.

Dumbass kids...
AAVE changes with each generation. It doesn't stay the same.

Everyone with common sense: yep

Coons, stupid whites, & idiot non-black ppl: *has seizure from the facts*

The mental folk: they're retards

Short for African American Vernacular Language. AAVE has been around for decades, centuries even…black people have created our own words that have circulated around our own communities. Some may label AAVE as “slang” or “ghetto” but it’s simply the way we speak and pronounce words. When those who are not black use AAVE, it’s very weird considering they are copying our every move.
Examples of AAVE: Musty, Chile, Ms girl, Deadass, Headass, cap, no cap, sis, pressed, finna, period/purr, asf, sus, stank, the gag, pop off, tea, trippin, hella, buggin, Tweakin, On my mama, Raw, real talk, snatched, gas/gassed/gassin, willin/wilding, aggy, wack/whack, throwing hands, girl bye/boy bye, and much more.
