- AAVE stands for African American Vernacular English
- AAVE is a language with structures and rules just like any other language
- use of AAVE is not “ghetto” and does not make a person unintelligent for using it
- that mocking it because it neglects your idea of “civilized speech” is pretty much anti black and makes you an asshole
- and it can be appropriated
simple to understand yes?

watching “Firefly” and the Reavers come up, I want to know more, so I wiki. Now I really don’t know the context of this, nor did know before hand, but…
@JossWhedon “has said of Reavers, “Every story needs a monster. In the stories of the old west it was the Apaches”. The purpose Reavers serve in the show has been compared to the Hollywood “Injuns” of the 1950s in western movies." WIKI
What the fuck Joss Whedon.
