It's actually more racist to label her language with a race...

This language can literally be used by any young easily influenced Nikki Minaj fan, and she has fans of several different races.

So for them to think "black people" by Tina's speech rather then "Young hip hop fan" which extends far outside of "black people" is stereotypical racism.

Tina is awesome, leave her alone.

Except for the fact Nikkk Minaj is extremely articulate and uses very little ebonics.

The way she speaks is a reflection of old hip hop slang. Most new age rappers who are not from the south use very little slang.
Oh, you thought they made this game for you? You clearly bought the wrong game.

"Lick my ass and anus cuz I'm finally famous"

You think she is extremely articulate?? Dude, what is wrong with you. I pity you so much, I won't even be mean about this.

Which part of that is ebonics or a poor use if grammar?

You're upset at her choice of words? She's saying "kiss my ass I'm famous now."
would you have preferred her to just say that? I think it would have between a tad bit bland.

On top of this you're quoting lyrics from a song. I'm talking about how she actually speaks during interviews. Just because you don't like someone or things they do doesn't mean you have to be delusional.
