The 10 Ebonics Commandments

Classic. (I modified the First Commandment slightly. Just seemed appropriate.)
  1. I Be the LAWD yo' God. Don’ be dissin’ Me.
  2. Don’ be makin’ hood ornaments outta Me or nothin’ in Mah crib.
  3. Don’ be callin’ Me fo’ no reason – Homey don’ play dat.
  4. Y’all betta be in church on Sundee.
  5. Don’ dis ya mama … an if ya know who ya daddy is, don’ dis him neither.
  6. Don’ ice a nizzle.
  7. Stick to ya own boo.
  8. Don’ be liftin’ no goods.
  9. Don’ be frontin’ like you all dat an’ no snitchin’ on ya homies.
  10. Don’ be eyein’ ya homie’s crib, ride, or nuffin’.
If you are black, and you read that, and you are deeply offended... ask yourself first and foremost why these exist in the first place. And be angry at that, instead of people like me.

If, on the other hand, you're like pretty much everyone else who reads this pokey little blog of mine, you're probably trying to stop your sides from splitting.

  1. In my case, cackling at that version of the Commandments is what I'm doing..
