AAVE

I cannot believe that this kind of thing has to be said, but here is a quick list of some of the AAVE terms that I see whites using that they need to stop, now. This is just stuff I see on tumblr or in every day life, not necessarily everything that’s AAVE.

• dig/dig it/ you dig
• “this guy/girl” or “this fucking guy/girl”
• for sure/fo sho/for real
• “know what I’m saying”
• ___ game strong/ ____ game like.
• side eye
• ya’ll
• hella
• dope
• finna
• thirsty

There are literally thousands more, but these are the ones I see regularly and seriously, if you’re not a poc, you need to STAAAAAAHP.
