Subject: Re: "my bad"
I worked in a Chicago, public inner city high school for 10+ years, and
the AAVE speakers started to use my bad around the mid 80's. My bad
meaning my fault and not on the basketball court, but in the classroom.
I also remember the students then starting to say My bus(t) meaning my
fault or my embarrassment maybe even coming from "to bus someone out"
to show them up.
