In brief: Not contagious

Ebonics is african american vernacular english, which is a bit different from american english.
An american english speaker who only spends a few hours a day with a person speaking another english dialect, but is not immersed in the other dialect all day long, is not likely to unintentionally start speaking in the other english dialect.

In brief: Doubt it!!

The only way I have heard the word ebonics used is in literary terms.
Maybe someone else has heard otherwise ?
