Mensagem:  Andre costa, "Ain't" is not limited to Black English. Believe it or not, a lotta of times when Caucasian American people use "ain't" they're actually trying to sound cool. Furthermore, this might surprise you, but "Blackness" is actually kinda cool in America. Most of the things that are "cool", start in the Black community. Eventually, they gradually become less "Black" and more "mainstream". This phenomenon is called "Charltanism". If you read about the history of American music(Jazz,RR RB,Hip-Hop, Gospel), Arts and Poetry you would know what I'm talking about. I wonder how it is in your country-Portugal -Miguel Vieira
