TEN COMMANDMENTS -- Ebonics Style!


Sometimes we have to get the message across as best we can. Try this for those who can't understand the King James Version:

1. I'm God. Don't play me.
(I am the Lord thy God, thou shalt not have any other gods before me.)

2. Don't be makin no hood ornaments and charms outta me, or like me.
(Thou shalt not have any graven images)

3.Don't be callin' me for no reason.
(Thou shalt not use the name of the Lord thy God in vain)

4. Y'all betta be in church on Sunday,and not just the Sundays when it's Mother's day, Easter and Christmas
(Remember to keep the Sabbath day holy)

5 Don't dis or cuss out yo momma...and if you know who ya daddy is, don't dis him neither.
(Honor thy father and thy mother)

6. Don't be goin' on no drive bys.
(Thou shalt not kill)

7. Stick to ya own Boo.
(Thou shalt not commit adultery)

8. Don't be borrow'n stuff and don't give it back.
(Thou shalt not steal)

9. Don't be snitchin' on the otha'man to save your behind.
(Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy brother)

10. Don't be eyein' (skeeming) yo homie'scrib, ride, woman, or nuffin.
(Thou shalt not covet

The Second Ten Commandments: (if you've seen these already, well, shoot me in a drive-by)

1. Thou shall not worry, for worry is the most unproductive of all human activities.

2. Thou shall not be fearful, for most of the things we fear never come to pass.

3. Thou shall not cross bridges before you come to them, for no one yet has succeeded in accomplishing this.

4. Thou shall face each problem as it comes. You can only handle one at a time, anyway.

5. Thou shall not take problems to bed with you, for they make very poor bedfellows. (This includes guys named Problem)

6. Thou shall not borrow other people's problems. They can better take care of them than you can.

7. Thou shall not try to relive yesterday for good or ill, it is forever gone. Concentrate on what is happening in your life now.

8. Thou shall be a good listener, for only when you listen do you hear ideas different from your own. It is hard to learn something new when you are talking.

9. Thou shall not become "bogged down" by frustration, for 90% of it is rooted in self-pity and will only interfere with positive action.

10. Thou shall count thy blessings, never overlooking the small ones, for a lot of small blessings add up to big ones.

Now, Ebonize them. I'll check in later for the ebonized version
