My mom said to me that black people have their own languages that originated from their tribes and that's why they have these weird accents.

Yeah its called ebonics0
So much racism in one sentence, but I will assume that's from ignorance, not your fault. No, "black people", don't have their "own" language. Some black people who have ancestors from other areas of the world, like Africa or India, will have relatives who may speak a language other than English, but all people with black skin don't just automatically speak another language, and it borders on racist to assume so.
I am not sure... they say a lot of slang words thou!
The ones in Africa have their own language. That or they came from Jamaica or haiti.
Ones that have family from north america for years do not. They speak English. Though most that I hear sound more southern.
Hold up, say what? That's just pure bs.
Black Americans don't have weird accent per say, but many of them have a different dialect, which is rooted to the fact that majority of Black American have southern heritage. The South of America has a different type of dialect or accent compared to the other regions of America. Majority of Blacks Americans ancestors were slaves in the south and it was there that they adopted the southern accent. When blacks began to migrate up north after the Civil War, they were usually grouped together in the same neighborhoods with one another and didn't mingle too much with the white population. This segregation caused some Blacks to retain their southern accent, even though they live up north.
The dialect that you see in inner cities black Americans (African American Vernacular English aka Ebonics) is simply an evolved form of the southern accent found in the rural deep south.
And no, Blacks do not have this accent because of their tribal days. They have it because they inherited the southern accent while they were slaves, and due to America being a society that was segregated for so long (still is to an extent) they retained this accent, even after moving out of the south.
poor uneducated GaG'ers
