Too many things can be said, not many can be explained.
why do black people use you in the wrong context? such is "you ugly" instead of "you're ugly" I know u guys can differentiate, it's a nuisance
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.
What’s more, it’s been shown that copula deletion occurs in AAVE exactly in those contexts where copula contraction occurs in so-called “Standard American English.” That is, the basic sentence “You are great” can become “You’re great” in SAE and “You great” in AAVE, but “I know who you are” cannot become “I know who you’re” in SAE, and according to reports, neither can you get “I know who you” in AAVE.
In other words, AAVE is a set of grammatical rules just as complex and systematic as SAE, and the widespread belief that it is not is nothing more than yet another manifestation of deeply internalized racism.
For the commentary
You ain’t shit if you constantly throw someone’s mistakes in their face. They know wtf they did. They live with that shit everyday. You’re not make it any easier. Your not helping relieve the mental battle that comes with that. The flash backs they have. The guilt that’s been perminatly engraved in their heart. You’re actually making it worse. Your making them feel unwanted. Your making them feel alone. Your making them feel like they don’t belong. Shame on you. Yea they might have hurt you from what they did but what your doing now by throwing it back in their face makes you just as bad. Some people really need a reality check. Selfish ass people.
