Ask, to ask. Incorrectly assumed to be a mispronunciation. "aks" is an ebonic pronunciation of the word "ask" and is considered to be acceptable english in grammar, but not spelling.
i.e. the word "carmel" has only one spelling, but can be pronounced "carmel" or "caramel"

Aks WAS the correct English and original pronounciation as England had conquered most of the world enslaving the Africans, this pronounciation has therefore entered the Ebonic lexicon through osmosis (subconciousness) it is therefore genetic of black people to pronounce aks as opposed to ASK. It has nothing to do with laziness because Bob Marley a well educated man and such spoke all the words of english properly, however he had difficulty pronouncing ASK. Ebonics is just another excuse to call black people stupid when in fact their cleverer than we think, they're fooling us all.
