    I would rather have my tongue cut out than to speak "ebonics". This actually shouldn't even be a question because "ebonics" is not an actual language. It's just the misuse, mispronnunciation, and complete slaughter of the English language.

      Good thing those who are fluent in "Ebonics" can't use a computer.

      You wouldn't be able to say things like "that'd", "be", "so", "much" or "fun".

      the fact that you are black isn't very important in this, most of the 'badmen' who speak like that in my school are white, and i agree, to this day i have no clue what they are saying.

    Most people who are on this question probably think they speak English just fine. I would encourage them to please explain why they can't text the same way. Interesting indeed. Lazy is lazy, end of story.

    I don't use much slang anyways except for a few acronyms and meme terms. Besides, skipping out on slang makes me seem more intelligible. In my opinion, the more you use slang, the less intelligible you seem.

    I pretty much live that life. I'm not ashamed to say my IQ is 130, and I speak using words almost nobody knows, but when they respond using slang, I know how they feel. You have no idea how hard I am trying to make this comment understandable.
