❝ hey so u always use the term 'slept on' and i was recently told that slept on along with some other terms i've seen cropping up lately are aave and non african-americans using those terms is appropriation. i know ur a poc but i also know ur not african-american so i was wondering what your thoughts were on that? ❞

Hey anon, thanks for bringing this to my attention. I assume this ask was meant to go to my brvtus blog but since I have thoughts on this topic I’ll go ahead and publish it here.

I wasn’t aware that ‘slept on’ specifically is AAVE so thank you for letting me know, this is definitely a trend I’ve seen a lot and that I’ve been a part of and am actively and consciously trying to avoid. I think it’s sometimes difficult as a non-American on social media to extricate what is or isn’t AAVE since the language becomes filtered through text and detached from it’s context, and for the most part I don’t consume any American pop cultural media; my exposure to vernacular like this is entirely from my friends and social media. For any black followers, I apologize.

Given that an overwhelming amount of black bloggers and Twitters have voiced their disapproval of non-black people using “trendy” AAVE phrases on social media, it’s definitely not an okay thing to do - not just arbitrarily “because appropriation is bad” but because black Americans have had a long history of being ridiculed, treated as less intelligent/literate/civilized than white people for the way they speak, pressured to assimilate into white speech patterns for credibility and respectability, etc. For non-black people to then turn around and use the language that black people continue to be mocked for is very much an act of violence - an assertion of power by non-black people over black people in a context where black contributions to culture are vastly under-credited while black people continue to be the targets of endemic and systemic state violence.

I’d like to see more of a conversation on what is fair & consensual cultural exchange vs. what is appropriation and cultural exploitation BUT given the histories and existing power dynamics that conversation isn’t ready to happen yet nor would I have any say in it. But yeah this is something that I’m aware of and I’ve been pushing myself to check the sources of slang I pick up more thoroughly (clearly this needs work) as well as shift the slang I use to draw from my own background. I’m also a big fan of #appropriatebroculture2k14 so from here on out I’m proposing:

  • instead of saying how’s it going you say “what’s your max bro”
  • when something is good/cool it’s “swole” or “fully jacked”
  • when something is bad/upsetting it’s “missed leg day”
