you all need to realize the power you hold through social media, like all of you on here with follower counts that exceed city populations need to use that power and help spread awareness for shit like this. social media is our biggest most accessible and most powerful tool. USE your audience

Another comic I started last night. This one is basically about what it was like being African American in high school, minus the supernatural transformation at the end.
This is awesome.

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.
