I assume that you have a course tutor to give guidance too? It's difficult to be precise without knowing the full context of your work.
However, make sure that you reference a range of other studies and opinions. These might be a place to start: http://blog.lexfriedman.com/post/285...acular-english
Look at the impact of AAVE and Black English on popular culture. Music is a key area, especially with some white artists adopting this language, and film. The topic seems to have two clear areas; the linguistic analysis of lexis, syntax, grammar etc, and the sociolinguistic element of prestige, accusations of cultural appropriation, sense of identity etc. To my mind the sociolinguistic element is much more complex, with competing theories and opinions, and offers more scope for you to demonstrate critical thinking.
