I'm not American but I've noticed that a lot of black americans talk differently than people of other races in the US. Why is this? Why don't they talk like everyone else? It seems very weird to me.
Why do black people in the US talk different?

Segregation left society very divided. Even still in the south in smaller towns the black people all live in one neighborhood and sit together at lunch.0
It's a different dialect called Ebonics, it was passed down through the generations and just stuck due to segregation. Why should they talk like everyone else?1
This is a silly question , Not all black Americans talk the same. Have you ever thought about it originated from slavery when the white man wanted black people to speak broken English. And over the years black people have overcame that mind set , A lot of it have to do with culture and the background a person is raised in. This not only applies for black people but any race.2
