Why does anyone type in ebonics?

These concepts are socially constructed and have been given much weight. What are your thoughts?

Are they actually trying to keep it real on a message board? Because if you are on an internet message board you should just give it up already.

THAT IS THE CASE. DUDES ON HERE THINK IT'S "COOL" TO SWITCH "S" WITH "Z". TO SHORTEN WORDS LIKE with, Mexican, DUZ, ETC. IT MAKES NO SENSE. IT'S ADDING INSULT TO INJURY. AND PEOPLE DON'T SEE IT. BUNCH OF CLOWNS. AND THE SAD THING IS, ALOT OF MEXICANS ARE DOING IT TOO. BUT WHAT'S FUNNY IS WHEN THEY GET BUSTED AND ALL OF A SUDDEN, IT'S "SIMON, ORALE, ETC" THAT TUNE GETS CHANGED REAL QUICK :wink:

this is an internet forum not english class. if a black dude feel comfortable speakin how he speaks with his homies, whatever. If a mexican dude feels comforatable speaking how he speaks with his homies, whatever. not cool to make fun of fools for how they talk if you don't type in exact MLA standards or some other crazy grammatical, proffesional shit.

Half of the People on this Board are Little Fucking Kidz Who Wanna Grow up to Be Triple O Gangsta, Not even Knowing NO PARTS of the Street. Its pure Ignorance. Granted, I Can Have a legitement conversation/debate with about 15% of the People on this Board... The Other 85% are incoherent and completly oblivious to the conversation at hand. Everyone wants to Talk about Fitty about Game, Nigga Please. Thank The media, Hollywood, Babylon for the indoctrination of our Youth... Theyve already sabotoged our schools from within, just kick Back and watch them infiltrate Households, Through the very source we are all utilising. Behold, The information age.

Using caplocks has nothing to do with proper grammar. You don't make any sense with your lame accusations. You know what I said about dudes on here being dumb and not realizing that people laugh when they see their "ebonics" is true. Don't get all huffy puffy chest and try and start a pissing contest. Settle down there ROOSTER!! CAUSE IF YOU WANT TO GET INTO A GRAMMATICAL WAR WITH ME, I'M ALL FOR IT :wink:

Using caplocks is not the proper way to type.So if youre going to point fingers at others for not writing ''correctly'' then you should point the finger at yourself first bitch.Since you want to get technical,why arent you using APA format,double spacing,indented paragraphs,etc?

this thread is stupid as fuck. writing shit how you pronounce it is not ebonics, spelling shit incorrectly is not ebonics, it is artistic licensce or just ignorance of American English. Slang is not ebonics either, or everyone in the world would speak a little bit of Ebonics, especially mexicans who speak spanglish. Fashizzle dizzle is ebonics (created words), black American syntax is ebonics, so shut the fuck up and let people type how they want.

WHAT ABOUT OW CHICANOS SPEAK THEIR DIALCET OF ENGLISH? NOT EXACTLY BRIGHT EITHER.

THE CANJUN SPEAKERS OF ENGLISH.


THE WAY WHITE NEW ENGLANDERS SPEAK ENGLISH
THE WAY WHITE PITTSBURG PEOPLE SPEAK ENGLISH
the way white southerns speak english

ALL THIS stuff ON PEOPLE SAYING THE PROPER USAGE OF ENGLISH WORDS AND IF MEXICANS KNEW ANYTHING THE UNITED STATES AS A WHOLE DON'T SPEAK PROPER ENGLISH! WE SPEAK STANDARD ENGLISH.

PROPER ENGLISH WOULD BE FROM AREAS AS THE UK.


MEXICANS DON'T SPEAK PROPER SPANISH EITHER :o


BLACK AMERICANS HAVE OUR OWN DIALECT OF ENGLISH WHICH IS CALLED A.A.V.E

haitians have there way of speaking french with a creole..

PEOPLE SAY BLACKS ARE THE ONly people to use ebonics not knowning they do it too but in different forms if that what it means.

You know, this reminds me of an incident with a certian grassroots organization. I won't say which one it was, but basically it was for a while promoting the teaching of "Ebonics and Afircan-American Language and Culture" for a while. They were almost going to make Ebonics an official course.

This to me is retarded and would have only perpetuated stereotypes and continued ideas of black people being "different."

why can everyone else be different but a black person can't. If it isn't AAVE muthafuckas who wanna hate going to find something else so fuck that, and fuck assimilation. The fact remains you were conquered so fuck the conquerer and everything he stands for, cause he sure doesn't stand for you.

Typing in Ebonics makes it hard for people to understand you. It's annoying and it sends off the message that you're trying to hard to be a thug, so you must be fake.

Then people clown you for 3 pages.

Hey calling him out for making a stupid thread is one thing but calling him a f*cking white boy is another thing. By calling him that, you are being just as racial as him.

He can have the opinion that ebonics makes you look ignorant and that would make him no more or less white or black than anyone else. A lot of black leaders are against the perpetual stereotypes that many black people put on themselves (watch BET for five minutes in primetime without seeing ignorance, I dare you, and not on Sundays with the Gospel stuf, that isn't even really BET-run, it's paid by some other group).
