Anonymous said: Why do you speak ebonics? You're white?
Is this because I used “da” instead of “the” in my last post?? Or was it that I referred to myself as boye?
I combed through the preceding posts and couldn’t find other examples. But I’m very sorry if I upset you, and I’ll try to be more mindful of my Internet language / presentation. I definitely internalized (as many urban white youths do) a lot of black American speech from a very young age, but that doesn’t make it okay for me to bandy it about.
Thank you for speaking up about this, and I extend my apologies to anyone else I might’ve offended
