you a bitch

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.

What’s more, it’s been shown that copula deletion occurs in AAVE exactly in those contexts where copula contraction occurs in so-called “Standard American English.” That is, the basic sentence “You are great” can become “You’re great” in SAE and “You great” in AAVE, but “I know who you are” cannot become “I know who you’re” in SAE, and according to reports, neither can you get “I know who you” in AAVE.

In other words, AAVE is a set of grammatical rules just as complex and systematic as SAE, and the widespread belief that it is not is nothing more than yet another manifestation of deeply internalized racism.

From The Angry Eye. Old link removed from YouTube. :( New, shorter version: The Angry Eye Part 1 | Part 2. Relevant transcript.

The Angry Eye can be rough to watch for some but honestly, I would recommend that everyone see it at least once. It’s really important. It’s also interesting to watch, Jane Elliot conducts the same experiment on adults and they behave very differently than the teenagers did. And not in a good way.

A lot of people are still asking me how Iggy Azalea is racist and homophobic so I’m just going to make a proper post. 

In addition to all of this, she calls herself a “slave master” at 0:06 in this video.

She acts real hood for someone who’d get their ass beat real fast if she stepped outside of her gated community

u finally make enough money to have a black car pick u up from the airport, but the guys always put the sign down when they see u cause they know it can’t be u. then u walk up to them and say “im donald” and they go “…oh”.
