I'm in my father's class at my high school. He said this today:
Him: As some of you may not know, I'm a feminist.
class: *laughs*
Him: No, really, I am.
Class: *laughs again*
Him: Why is that funny?
Asshole: Because you're a man, and you shouldn't think that way.
Him: Well why not?
Asshole: I dunno that's just the way that is.
Him: I'm a feminist because of my wife. She and I have the EXACT same job. Yet, I make more than her.
Class: *laughs*
Him: Why is that funny? Shouldn't women be paid equally as men?
Same Asshole: No, they're supposed to be in the kitchen.
Him: *slams fist on asshole's desk* Why?
Asshole: Because that's how it is.
Him: Why?
Asshole: That's their job.
Him: Why?
Asshole: *can't come up with another answer*
Him: I'm a feminist because my wife has the exact same job, gets less pay, and with that, I can barely support my three children. If she got paid as much as me, life would be a bit easier for all of us.
*note, my mother is a teacher like my father*
Him: Women gave birth to us, and now, here in the state of Michigan, they can't even have their own rights? It's 2014 people! Grow up or get out of my class.
Class: *silence*
Him: Now.. Louis XVI

Anonymous asked: why do black people use you in the wrong context? such is "you ugly" instead of "you're ugly" I know u guys can differentiate, it's a nuisance

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.
