But the word “aint” is and it’s apart of aave which is what the original point was. And at this point you’re picking and choosing which part of the argument you want to address which is so sad. I’ve followed you for so long and honestly expect so much more from you Seba. btw being black and being african-american are not the same. aave doesn’t belong to you. you can’t claim things that belong to african-americans.

I never claimed aave as “belonging to me”??? someone told me to stop using aave in reference to me saying “ain’t for yall”, I said that’s how I speak & then later on said that that isn’t specific to aave and that a lot of things that are part of aave are actually a part of a lot of dialects, and then someone started going at me for supposedly not being black. Not sure what u want me to address here?


Koľkokrát sa dá zlomiť jedno srdce?

(zobúdzam sa na gauči, oblečená ešte zo včerajška a prvé čo si uvedomujem je nekonečné dunenie v hlave, nepríjemné horko po celom tele a spotené ľadové dlane. 

A potom si spomeniem na večer a uvedomujem si, že to nebol iba zlý sen. Tá neznesiteľná bolesť v hrudi nie je od cigariet. Vyžiera ma zvnútra. Jak čierna diera, prepadáva sa do seba a tam, kde som kedysi mala “srdce”, zostáva len vákuum.)

Albertus Seba seems to have been an originator of the 18th-century style of the funky curly reptilian tails in order to show both their dorsal and frontal patterns. He certainly imparted some great style to other parts of his illustrations, as well.
