Steve and a thirty-ish black woman are talking.

She: "... but _we_ are taking care of the baby."

He : "So, _you_ are taking care of the baby."

She : No, Steve. _WE_ are taking taking care of the baby."

If you don't get it it, then you have no business pretending to be a
dialectologist! 😜

All say, "How hard it is that we have to die!"---a strange complaint to
come from the mouths of people who have had to live.
