Moral busybodies are taking the perfectly good word family and using it as a code for censorship the same way 'states' rights' was used to disguise racism in the mid-sixties.

Urban African-American English Dialect
By: Maso  |  January 8, 2009

Please, read the title with a snooty Oxford professor accent. Done? Ok.

Firstly, let's put this African-American BS out of the way. Black. But even that's incorrect because this is done by whites (wiggers), latinos, and many other groups. So let's refer to the speakers of this as 'fecktards'. There, that's simple.

OKAY, so I'm sure readers of Lord Galen's site are familiar with the fecktard masses. These people [generally] live in the projects, wear their pants halfway down their legs, have a 50-50 chance of being on government support, and another 50-50 chance of having a child by age 18. So, these aren't the most advantaged of society's inhabitants. However, this is no excuse to make a mockery of the English language.

Our language has one of the simplest verb systems in the Indo-European family. Our regular verbs (and even many irregular verbs) conjugate for past, present, future, and infinitive. And, with the exception of the third person singular present tense, it's all the same. Pretty easy, huh?

No, apparently. Because it becomes too much of a difficulty to say 'He goes.' No, 'he go' is so much easier. And the 'th' sound? Screw it, let's use 'd.' "He goes to the store." -> "He go to da store." And I never liked the letter 'r', so we can get 'id of it. Fo' sho', we ain't be needin' no 'r's and we don' need da white man's gramma'!"

And, shame on linguists for calling it a dialect. This is just really crappy English. Really crappy American English, so it's already far enough, being a dialect. Stop encouraging people who talk like this with comments like "It's their cultrue and identity." NO! It's just linguistic rape on people who care about language.

I'm sick o' dose stupid mo'fo's.
