You are a MORON. The negro slaves learned English from their white owners, then ruined it all on their own over the years.
**********
African American Vernacular English
This type of Southern American English originated in the Southern States where Africans at that time were held as slaves. These slaves originally spoke indigenous African languages but were forced to speak English to communicate with their masters and each other. Since the slave masters spoke Southern American English, the English the slaves learned, which has developed into what is now African American Vernacular English, had many SAE features. While the African slaves and their descendants lost most of their language and culture, various vocabulary and grammatical features from indigenous West African languages remain in AAVE. While AAVE may also be spoken by members of other ethnic groups, it is largely spoken by and associated with blacks in many parts of the U.S. AAVE is considered by a number of English speakers to be a substandard dialect. As a result, AAVE speakers desiring social mobility typically learn to code-switch between AAVE and a more standardized English dialect. Liberian English is said to be at least partially based on AAVE, since that this type of English dialect was modeled after American English and not British English.
1. Your answer is to resort to child-like name-calling? Were you aware "moron" is no longer a classification of intelligence? Please provide evidence of your name and license number to assess or evaluate intellect. If you can't, please stick to the debate and refrain from the lower development technique used with feelings of INADEQUACY.

2. It appears you might have confused ACCENT with LANGUAGE. This might evidence your intelligence or educational level?

3. Are you claiming people in the United States (or colonies) originated the English language? Are you claiming all U.S. accents originated from the English language?

"African American Vernacular English (AAVE) shares similarities with Southern dialect due to African Americans' strong historical ties to the region."

a. There is no known single SOUTHERN accent. Which accent are you citing?

b. Various vocabulary and grammatical features originated from indigenous West African languages remain in AAVE.

Your drawl may include African language and accents, y'all!

<quoted text>And move down to the South cause the North is too expensive to live in and come here and think you are better. You are a stuck up jerk who needs to go back to where you come from. God bless the southern traditions and the proud heritage we Southerns have. You stink..........
1. Since the Asians were first to the U.S. area, should you return to where you came??? When did your family arrive? I'm sure it would be millions or thousands of years after Asians (who became Native Americans).

2. Please post your position that authorizes you to tell people to leave the area.

Bullies who think everyone should "do it their way or else" will respond with "leave and go back to where you came from" similar to children when they feel loss of control over others.

The U.S. was founded by people who complained. It's called DEMOCRACY. It's part of our U.S. Constitution. As a U.S. citizen, you swore to uphold the U.S. Constitution and laws of the land.

Are you proud of all "Southern traditions" and "heritage"?

Southerners were well known to be true gentlemen. How are you modeling "true gentleman" behavior? Maybe, you're not a true gentleman?

Southern culture has been the most distinctive regional culture, due to the racial oppression of black Americans and the succeeding rationalizations for that exhaustive racial discrimination. Proud?

Do you opine Southern culture is superior to the north? I doubt any southern religion would preach superiority, judging others or mean-ness to other humans.

Southerners is coming to mean Cubans, Latinos and Hispanics (and many slave descendants). Are you one with them?

Where's your manners?

This is the negative energy of a true Yankee. "Life Roach" you have to realize how inferior you truly are, to all walks of life. What else would cause such a chip on the shoulders?? By the way, "we won the civil war"?? Whose pocket were you in? Maybe, just maybe, you could hand a little of your foolish pride to your ancestors. Ha Ha Ha!!

been to quite a few states in the north and the people who resides there all have one thing in common. BEING RUDE. They will let doors shut on you, cut in line in front of you, push you,cut you off in traffic. They ALL act like they have to be FIRST in everything. Never have I ever met more ruder people than yankess. The ones that move to the south are the same way. Thats why the southern people wish they would just go back north!

Everything you have just explained I have experienced in the South. You are either truly retarded or you have lied about your travels.
