you a bitch
It’s called copula deletion, or zero copula. Many languages and dialects, including Ancient Greek and Russian, delete the copula (the verb to be) when the context is obvious.
So an utterance like “you a bitch” in AAVE is not an example of a misused you, but an example of a sentence that deletes the copular verb (are), which is a perfectly valid thing to do in that dialect, just as deleting an /r/ after a vowel is a perfectly valid thing to do in an upper-class British dialect.
Why do people like you keep omitting letters in words? Such as “you’re ugly” instead of “you are ugly”, or “u guys can” instead of “you guys can”?
Not gonna say “karma”, but….
the gender binary is so pointless and fragile you can confuse people with nothing but eye makeup and soft muscle tone it’s like covering your face while playing with a baby and seeing them wonder where you magically disappeared to

I should make a list of things to do before I die to up my motivation.
But like, every list is a list of things to do before I die. Maybe I should just make a list of things to do after I die…
