it’s just like so weird cause a lot of tumblrisms are clearly stemmed from aave and then killed by non-black POC & white people hence their constant misuse and eventual overuse, until black people come up w more terms to use 

terms like

  • basic
  • prayer circle
  • thirst/thirsty/the thirst
  • (example) game on point
  • (example) game strong
  • slay
  • shade
  • bruh
  • hunty
  • bae
  • stay in [pronoun] lane

etc etc etc

stop usin aave just because you learned it on tumblr

you’re still not entitled to it and you’re especially not if you just use it to seem hip and cool and funny

cause what it boils down to is that you don’t use it for expression and you were not raised to speak like that, nor do you live around people who speak like that— you just use it to be funny in front of your friends and that’s the thing I don’t like

this is a good post and im going to go ahead and add that the very popular word fuckboy is aave and existed pre tumblr in the black community stop using it

Okay I do respect the general idea of this post, but I do disagree with some things.

 ”cause what it boils down to is that you don’t use it for expression and you were not raised to speak like that, nor do you live around people who speak like that— you just use it to be funny in front of your friends”

Maybe it’s true that the people you’re referring to weren’t raised with these phrases, but if they’re on tumblr a lot, they’re constantly seeing them in context.  And it’s completely normal to start using a phrase after seeing it used often.  I’m pretty sure that’s how phrases become commonplace.  

I realize now that it just sounds like I disagree with the post completely, so let me clarify on that.  I do agree that that the phrases shouldn’t be used to make a mockery of them, and I do think that OP has good intentions.

i named one of my other blogs “The Crackers were Bad Luck” because it’s a Marina and the Diamonds reference, but I just realized it could also be the title for an overzealous sjw blog

this was the best pun I’ve ever made, screw you guys
