Your post is a good example of “people getting offended over anything”.
Why should a dialect of English be so offensive to you?

Nah. That’s called incredulous.
 
You have a right to talk how you like and who am I to say anything about it, but so do users of AAVE.
It has to be a troll because the alternative is sad.
 My nephew’s in middle school and does his share of trolling and basic racist stuff – but even he’s beyond this level. This is 4th grade trolling with some vocabulary.

 “Talking pidgin is the dumbest thing ever.
Like you know how to speak, just speak correctly!! It’s not that difficult!! Use this picture as an example.
And no don’t call it an accent. You know people that talk pidgin rearrange words and spell things wrong on purpose. It irritates me to no end.”

  If you’re a 7th grade US English teacher, I’d expect this rant. Mine got mad because I decided to use British spellings. Same happened to my nephew. In each case, decades apart, “You’re in America, use American” is what they said. Different states, different teachers, different eras, same BS.It was stupid of them then and stupider here because you can’t even have “I’m an English teacher” as an excuse.So what makes your opinion superior to the examples you post?Irishness?

  Thank you. Pidgins are amazing. I know AAVE isn’t a pidgin but it’s amazing for being a uniquely American phenomenon.

 Oh I’m not here to teach. I’m amused by the continuation of willful ignorance of the OP. I thought it might be just a troll but I think it’s serious, in which case, it’s an amazing sample of part of the American tapestry.

First time I learned about vowel shifting (probably high school) I was hooked. Linguistics, etymology, grammars, all that stuff continues to be a life long fascination.
