Some commonly used words/phrases that contribute to the appropriation of Black culture in the U.S.(hence, if you aren't Black, you shouldn't be using them):
Note: this is not a comprehensive list!
Woke Lit/it’s lit Bae (this is NOT short for “before anyone else” tf. Niggas been sayin this forever) [on] fleek Ratchet (don’t be a smartass, the adjective not the object) Baby Mama Hella Squad [goals] Trap/trap queen YAS/Yasss queen Turn up/turnt Basic (as in basic Becky) [throwing] shade Swag Bout that life Dig it/ya dig Giving life (i.e. Beyonce gives me life, black tumblr giving me life) Fa sho Habitual “be” (i.e. they be killin it, he be walkin, bitches be like, etc.) Ass (i.e. That’s some ignorant-ass shit.)

If you wanna argue with me: 1.) Check your privilege 2.) Educate yourself on the historical and contemporary harms of cultural appropriation in this country, particularly within the Black community 3.) Assess whether your ability to say a word is as important as the dehumanization, oppression, and appropriation of an entire culture.
If you still wanna argue: 1.) Don’t even say nun just unfollow me 2.) Piss off
