Mensagem:  I wonder what makes you think a disagreement from someone else upsets me....It does not. Trust me, I'm very open minded!!! What I said is that most(majority) of the American slangs come from African-American Vernacular English(AAVE). This is true!!! As you know Americans of African descent have been here for the last 400 years. The Irish, Italian, Jewish, and others didn't come till the middle to the late 1800's. In fact, they weren't even considered American(White) back then. They were "foreign races", as the then white(English men) power structure labelled them. African-Americans on the other hand, ever since the beggining have been the cultural and linguistic innovators. Unfortunately, however, as you well know, white charlatans take all the credit. I suspect it's the same in Brazil -Miguel Vieira
