Ebonics is a dialect of the english language.

So much confusion here and elsewhere about slang, jive, ebonics, street lingo, whatever limited minds want to call the particular way 'black' people talk. Well guess what? It isn't lazy speech, it isn't uneducated speech, it's a dialect!

Read this book a couple times if you cannot pick up what I am throwing down:
