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.

What’s more, it’s been shown that copula deletion occurs in AAVE exactly in those contexts where copula contraction occurs in so-called “Standard American English.” That is, the basic sentence “You are great” can become “You’re great” in SAE and “You great” in AAVE, but “I know who you are” cannot become “I know who you’re” in SAE, and according to reports, neither can you get “I know who you” in AAVE.

In other words, AAVE is a set of grammatical rules just as complex and systematic as SAE, and the widespread belief that it is not is nothing more than yet another manifestation of deeply internalized racism.

I had the great privilege to create illustrations for Adobe Creative Cloud. These images will be used as header art for ​featured learning content on Adobe.com in the near future.

The challenge was to create conceptual, rather than literal, artistic interpretation of tutorial topics and content.

It was a pleasure to work with Art Director, Kendall Plant, and an honor to be in the company of some truly inspired illustrators.

Matty and Collin both got to work on the adobe project as well. They did such a great job with their sets. I especially love Matty’s cool Miami man with the squigs. I have been posting mine individually but I will post my set soon with an update on the specs of the project. Woo Matty! <3 Get it, girl. Check out both of their work!
