One of my favorite blogs (and me not being a blog reader, this is particularly high esteem) is the humorous site “Snacks and Shit“. It is a blog on which two white comedians make jokes about silly rap lyrics. The reason I’m encouraging everyone to look at their site (aside from the laughs you’re likely to have) is to look at their take on African American English. Because they are looking at these lyrics through a Standard English lense, they often refer to sentences as “just plain wrong” or “not even trying to say it right,” which is a stigma many AAE speakers face every day. Take a look.
