It’s called copula deletion, or zero copula. Many languages and dialects, including Ancient Greek and Russian, delete the copula (the verb to be) when the context is obvious.
So an utterance like “you a bitch” in AAVE is not an example of a misused you, but an example of a sentence that deletes the copular verb (are), which is a perfectly valid thing to do in that dialect, just as deleting an /r/ after a vowel is a perfectly valid thing to do in an upper-class British dialect.
I also seriously hate that people people think AAVE, or even other dialects with similar grammar/linguistic rules and patterns, are slang.
AAVE IS NOT SLANG, IT IS A DIALECT. It follows a set of rules, grammar, syntax, etc that other dialects within a language fucking follows.
You a bitch
That’s the number of arrest warrants issued in Ferguson last year for nonviolent crimes. Compare that to the population of 21,135 people.
"White citizens were stopped less than 13% of the time despite making up 29% of the population"
At some point I’ll stop talking about Ferguson. Today is not that day.
If it looks like a male lion and is perceived as a male lion—well, sometimes it isn’t. That’s the case of Africa’s unusual maned lionesses, which sport a male’s luxurious locks and may even fool competitors.
Though uncommon, maned lionesses have been regularly sighted in the Momba area of Botswana‘s Okavango Delta (including the individual pictured below), where the lion population may carry a genetic disposition toward the phenomenon, according to Luke Hunter, president of the big-cat conservation group Panthera, which collaborates with National Geographic’s Big Cats Initiative.

wow wow WOW
take THAT gender BINARY! HAH!
[on diversity in media] I think its social responsibility. I think it’s our responsibility to stand up and say what we want. It think if you look at television in the past two years, it’s becoming the decade of the female. Like, all these new shows with female leads. Even if you look at television, as well as cable, as well as films, there’s been a resurgence, as far as the leading woman in Hollywood, which is great. And I think we’re also at the point now…you know, it’s interesting…x
anthony mackie wants none of your fake geek boy bs
In our society today girls feel that they need to be skinny in order to find love. Fact is, your true love is gonna love you no matter what. If he cares about the size of your thighs more then the size of your heart…drop him my darlings as no man should make you feel bad about your size if he truly loves you <3
Reblog. Every. Single. Time.
Naw son. Fuck this entire fucking movie because it’s about these skinny ass women who are bitter as fuck because the fat girl in their group is getting married before them and they mad because “HOW THE FUCK IS THE FATTY BEING HAPPY WHILE WE ARE SKINNY AND ATTRACTIVE NOOO WOE IS MY SKINNY SELF!”
Not to mention the fact that this scene is AFTER THE SKINNY WOMEN ALMOST DESTROYED HER DRESS DUE TO THEIR PETTY ASS BULLSHIT.
