I CANNOT EVEN BEGIN TO EXPLAIN HOW MUCH I HATE THE JEFFCO SCHOOL BOARD. YOU CAN’T CENSOR HISTORY BECAUSE IT MAKES US LOOK BAD. THE REASON WE TEACH THESE IS TO KEEP FROM MAKING THE SAME MISTAKES AND WHY THESE PEOPLE DON’T UNDERSTAND THAT ABSOLUTELY KILLS ME.

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.

Dude, my school was in that march.

Whoa, cool! We actually ended up away from the school groups somehow, which was probably good because that entire area looked really congested.

Tomorrow there’s gonna be a Flood Wall Street event. I really want to go but it’s during school hours. It’s going to be a mass sit in. I’m not really enough of a bad boy to skip school but I’ll probably go after school assuming it’s still up.

At the NYC climate march today. There were over 300,000 people there. Really great experience to be marching with people who really cares about the planet.
I was with fagmints , coolhipblog , and heisenboig. We were all hella tired by the end but it was great.

Here’s a test:

I’m holding a baby in one hand and a petri dish holding a fetus in the other.

I’m going to drop one. You chose which.

If you really truly believe a fetus is the same thing as a baby, it should be impossible for you to decide. You should have to flip a coin, that’s how impossible the decision should be.

Shot in the dark, you saved the baby.

Because you’re aware there’s a difference.

Now admit it

woah.

"My family is suffocating me with pressure to be a perfect student and daughter." (r.i.d)

people always ask me why i’m going into teaching instead of being a writer.

the number of notes on this in less than 24 hours and the number of people who said “same” or “exactly” or “about me” - that’s why. there is so much fundamentally wrong with our system. The only way to change it is from within.

That’s legit my whole life
