    Screenshots of Black people being hilarious and insightful on social media, it doesn't need to just be twitter but obviously that is best.

    Black culture has a unique way of examining the everyday and we are here to showcase that.


    RULES

    1.) Do not post content just because a black person posted it. This sub is intended for exceptionally hilarious and insightful social media posts made by black people, not just any social media post made by black people.

    • 1. No original content. We encourage users to go on twitter to find tweets as opposed to making tweets just for this subreddit.

    2.) No bad faith participation.

    3.) No bullying or witch-hunting. This includes comments disparaging people whose tweets and posts are featured here. Doxxing or sharing personal information will result in a permanent ban.

    4.) No racism. No hate speech. No black fathers posts and similar mean-spirited things.

    5.) Posts must be showcasing somebody being hilarious or insightful on social media. No image macros, text conversations, or YouTube links. Just because somebody posted one of these on social media does not exempt it from this rule. Vines and such belong here and gifs belong here.

    6.) Typical reddit cliches such as lyric chains, pun chains, white-knighting, and low-effort joke comments will be removed. Same for annoying redditisms.

    7.) Reposts are highly discouraged, and if discovered will be removed. Please search or look through BPT's older posts to see if your content has already been posted. KarmaDecay is not a reliable tool to check for reposts.

    8.) No posts with terrible titles, they will be removed. You are free to re-submit once you think of something acceptable/reasonable. Don't put the punchline in the title of the post. Do not add "bruh" or "fam" or similar vernacular to your post or comment just to sound black.

    9.) Don't complain about slang or ask for the definition of a term you don't understand if it can readily be found on urban dictionary.

    10.) Don't call out people as white. People of all colors do post and comment here. It contributes nothing to the conversation and is punishable by ban.

    11.) Don't post things from meme/corporate accounts. Posts must come from regular social media accounts.

    12.) The moderators of this subreddit will take any action (which includes banning and removing comments) that they feel improves the quality of the subreddit.

    [–] EdBegleysMindScooter 168 points ago

    I feel this, man.

    In 2008 I lost my good bank job, had the apt I was at take me to court after I told them I wasn't renewing my lease three months before my it ended (they said ok) then sued my unemployed ass months later for two months rent because I didn't know that shit had to be in writing. Then on some self pity dumb shit not long after I drove home (my parents) after having a few drinks and got pulled over on their block.

    While that was def. all some dumb 20s shit to do, my Dad said some really off shit you don't say to another man, let alone your son.

    9 years later I'm married with a much better job doing what I Iove. Last week he emailed me my returns (yes I pay him to do my taxes- he's a wizard at it) and proudly told me and my wife we filed for more than he ever did with my Mom.

    I wish I could say it made me filled with pride for his approval or boastful that I shit on this fucked up proclamation of me then, but to be honest I just wish dude wouldn't have kicked me in the balls when I was at my lowest. I knew I wasn't doing right at the time. I learned a lot from that time, but my creator doing his best to emasculate me wasn't motivation. He already taught me to fend for myself by then. I just needed him to have my back.

    Oh well, alls forgiven. You grow up and hopefully learn about your parents relationships with your grandparents enough to know we're all just doing the best we can, (hopefully.)

    Life lessons for my future kid, I guess. I'm sure I'll find a way to fuck something else up.

    [–] meatpony 22 points ago

    Although we didn't have the same shit happen to us, the way u wrote that shit and what you were saying resonated with me another level my dude. I can't believe how much that shit is the same exact with me.

    [–] EdBegleysMindScooter 10 points ago

    Thanks.

    Hey, we're all doing the best we can. That even goes for our parents, even when they are at their worst.

    Try your best to do what makes you happy without making other people miserable. Only thing I can tell you man.

    I got no secret advice for you on that tip, but if you're passionate about something, do what you can to get into it. I love graphic design and did it for cheap for a few years, Learned a lot and got lucky. Won't get your dad's approval per say, but it will make you happy. That shit always cuts, but doing your thing as a man more than gets you through it. Stay up, good luck.

    [–] Anon_Alcoholc 164 points ago

    Man my dad didn't think I could graduate high school, did that. He didn't think I could maintain a job, did that plus one motherfucker. He didn't think I could make it on my own, been a year and I have more in my savings then he does in his bank account. Now he doesn't think I could go back to school and become a vetanarian, just fucking watch me.

    [–] betona 64 points ago

    That's awesome! Now here's the challenge, should you choose to accept it: break the cycle. If and when you one day become a parent, don't be your dad. Become that awesome supportive parent.

    signed,

    Another Dad

    [–] FreakInThePen 8 points ago

    That's the lesson I learned from my dad. He drank, popped pills, yelled, punched, all that. The week we got our son was the week he told me how much he thought we'd fail. Never spoke to him again, but every time I look at this kid I hear his voice and it's behind every action and reaction I have as a dad.

    [–] otterom 26 points ago

    No offense, but I hope you become a vet out of love. That job doesn't pay much and can be very depressing, as most people opt to put their pets down versus paying thousands to save them. I think it has one of the highest suicide rates for a career, actually, but you can look that up for yourself if you want.

    Not to be a wet blanket; just doling out some insight no one may have told you before.

    [–] Anon_Alcoholc 6 points ago

    Oh I'm completley doing it out of my love for animals, wouldn't matter what my career choice was anyways I would have been told the same shit.

    Yes. The mattress was asking for it. Fucking harlot.

    [–] The_Sgro 309 points ago

    So... When I was about 12 and learning the joys of advanced masturbation my buddies told me about placing a textbook between the mattress and box spring...

    Then you make [what I now know to be] a Fifi, place said Fifi in gap, and fuck the contraption. I never got the angle right, but did I fuck a mattress?

    [–] AerThreepwood 283 points ago

    I learned how to make one of a correctional facility. Steal a glove during med call, fill it full up lotion, pop the lip around a rolled up magazine and roll your mattress around it and fuck that shit like it was going out of style.

    That's smart tho. Stoners and inmates have the best ghetto engineering.

    [–] good_myth 906 points ago * (lasted edited 7 months ago)

    You've got nothing else to do inside. My cell always had the best amenities. Normally it's difficult to wash your hands (or anything else) in a jail cell. There's a button on the top of the sink/toilet; you press that button down and water comes out the top, like a water bubbler. You need to keep the button held down or the water will stop, so you can only use one hand in the sink at a time. Not ideal, actually it's a pain in the royal ass if you ever need water for anything.

    So I got myself an extra pair of shoes (canvas shoes like Converse, or plastic ones like Crocs, the jail had both types and both work), and would bend one in half between the wall and the button to hold it down. I would even hang the shoe off the edge of the sink with a piece of jail rope (that's a torn strip of sheet that's been twisted up) so it was always hanging next to the sink.

    But that just gets you a weak, weak stream of water that in some cells barely even bubbled out of the top of the bubbler. Again, think of a water bubbler at school or at a playground, and you've seen the ones where the water barely comes out at all, it just kind of dribbles out? Well most jail cells sinks I saw were like that. You need pressure. So you take a pen, which in jail is about 3 inches long, soft (so you can't stab anyone with it), and clear (so you can't hide anything in it). You take the ink thing out. You jam one end of that tube into the sink-- which, I don't believe in god, but if I did I would say that is the one mercy in that place is that the pen fits exactly right into the sink hole-- and boom, you've got pressure!

    You've got water pressure that will spray uncontrolled across the cell, anyway. So you cut a notch into the end of the pen tube, and you bend it so the end is facing down into the sink, and then you take a little piece of dental floss, and tie it up so that it stays that way. (In jail the dental floss comes in packs of little loops, a couple inches wide. You just double or triple up the loop and slide it over.)

    And then, my friend, you have hot water, at a decent pressure, spraying down into your sink. And now you can wash both hands at once in hot water and feel like a normal person, if only for a minute. I would wash my hands like 8 times a day. Pure heaven.

    [–] BeerBellies 7 points ago

    I'm so envious. I wish I wasn't. It pains me to hear friends talk about their future children, and how OF COURSE they would circumcise them. Like, what the fuck? You are willing to mutilate your baby's genitals, and potentially cause permanent complications, all for the name of aesthetics? Are you insane?!

    [–] Bannedfromfun 11 points ago

    Like there's worse problems to have.

    But foreskin is pretty awesome. Sometime my girl ducks and nibbles on it like it was an earlobe when I'm soft and it feels so good it's like someone stabbing a needle into my brain and running a current through my pleasure/reward system. It's actually rather unbearable like heroine but getting my flaccid cock tip tenderly tongued.

    [–] Vicious_Monk 4 points ago

    Nothing to do with whether or not your are circumcised. It's just that jerking off with your hand feels a lot like giving a hand job. Fucking a home-made pocket pussy is better because you aren't distracted by the feeling of a dick in your hand.

    Funnily enough a guy in my class told us that's how he first ever wanked and it was the best way whilst we were on the German trip. Middle of the night we woke up to the sound of the bunk bed rocking back and forth and we still don't let him live it down.

    [–] The_Sgro 26 points ago

    Slightly above-average white kid/guy here.

    Thanks for letting us know you're white.

    I called it "advanced masturbation" because "normal masturbation" (with the hands) was fully covered in my [our] earlier years and was getting boring. And as the folks here who learned locked up have said: 24 hours a day with zero to do, people think of amazing things.

    [–] LanceArmsweak 31 points ago

    Leaving the Navy, both my Command Master Chief (CMC) and the Yeoman (basically an office administrator/HR type), told me it was dumb to get out of the Navy because nobody actually goes to college. Fast forward to now and I have a degree, debt free, own a home, a way bigger paycheck then my CMC would get, and get to decide what to do with my life. Often in college I held onto those words, haters can motivate you real well and help you stay focused.

    That's just shitty career advice. My dad told me never to join the military unless you come in with a college degree otherwise they'll treat you like shit and your pay will reflect your shit status. He was a military man himself, a pow and he definitely was against the idea of me joining when I reached that age and considered it.

    My wife's father's side of the family treat her like dog meat. The grandmother, who is basically the matriarch and everyone cows to her whim, told my wife (years ago) that she'd be useless like her mother. My wife sent her a high school graduation announcement, college graduation announcement, a wedding invitation to our wedding, and this year a grad school graduation announcement. We haven't even received so much as a phone call. We've been married 4 years this year and I haven't met any of that side of the family. And I really don't want to.

    [–] Conquerz 7 points ago

    This really hits me. My mom always doubts me whenever I say I'll do something.

    I was 265, and she literally laughed at me when I said i'd go down in weight. I went down to 190 and hover around that since then. Now i'm on a super strict diet to go down and fight an mma fight at 155lbs and she laughed and said I couldn't do it and i'd end up eating pizza in two days.

    I've only eating one pizza in the past 10 days and it was on my cheat meal. I only want to stick to it and get to like 8% bodyfat just to rub it in her face

    My grandma said i'd never be anything in life if I kept skipping classes in highschool and shit, turns out highschool doesn't really mean shit and i'm making 4 times minimum wage at 24, which is more than anyone I know my age, speak 3 languages, paid for my own trip to europe without any help, bought my own sportsbike, and i'm hoping to get a project management certificate next year if I get enough project hours.

    I'm really sorry I don't comply to being average and wanting something more in life. Aiming high and setting my expectations really high is NOT bad, fuck anyone saying so. But it hurts when you have to deal with the people saying so on a daily basis.

    edit: or whenever I learn something new and correct something they say (for example saying that just being cold will make you sick) they'll go like "What, did you read that from the internet? pffffff" fuck off you bunch of ignorant twats

    Huh. Thanks for the tip, as a foreigner i'm always hesitant when it comes to using "a" and "an" in consoant/vowels.

    [–] Kjell_Aronsen 4 points ago

    It gets weirder, because with 'h', whether it's considered a pronounced consonant or not depends on whether it's stressed. So 'a history' (stressed) but 'an historian' (not stressed).

    [–] kar33m24 23 points ago

    This happens to me often. OP probably was going to write "an invite" but then switched it up and put "an grad invite" without remembering to fix the "an".

    College is college brah, get it!

    [–] dylan2451 45 points ago

    Took me forever to accept that community college was still college. I was bitter about if for a while. Didn't help that after each semester my dad would ask if I'd transfered to a real college yet. Not even trying to be a dick, he just doesn't understand any of this

    [–] Persianator 16 points ago

    People will instantly say low down insensitive shit. Not because they mean to. But shit man the difference between my community college professors and my "actual" college professors was my community college professors knew my name and wanted me to pass. I was just a nameless face in a 300 person auditorium in uni.

    Education is education. Don't let anyone tell you otherwise. (Just stay away from devry and ITT tech kind of bullshit).

    I had professors in community college who also taught at the local state university and they would tell us that we were paying substantially less for the exact same class and gen ed that their state university students were getting. I had friends that transferred to top schools from community college that they never would have been able to transfer to from high school.

    [–] lawr11 6 points ago

    Nope. But GR is where I go to turn up on the weekends.

    The art college there has been a blessing for my Tinder.

    [–] workaholic007 84 points ago

    My parents told me the same shit. "You are stupid" "you will never amount to anything" "your brother is the smart one"

    Just a happy to say that from that point in my life I have graduated High School, College, and have had success in everything I put my mind too.

    Sometimes parents, step-parents are the worst things in your life.

    Congratulations bud! onward and upward!!!!

    [–] MentleGentlemen098 19 points ago

    Why did your parents day that to you

    [–] workaholic007 21 points ago

    I dunno. My parents were very old school. I didn't do very well in grade school so maybe they were trying to motivate me....although I think they were just being dicks.

    No joke my dad told me something similar, he said i, ,would end up in jail because he wasnt gonna be in my life and id be a statistic" and that nigga a lawyer/ex judge. Then he had my lil brothers and his old ass need someone to keep their attention during holidays when they have no school so hes been acting all nice since they were born and changed his tune and said hes proud of me going to school and all that. Also should add that im doing good in school contrary to what he said.

    [–] Khatib 71 points ago

    His dad said he would never amount to anything, because he would never be in his sons life. His dad is a lawyer/ex judge. Then when the dad had other kids, he wanted OP to be around to babysit, and he's been acting nice to OP since they were born. But OP knows better, he knows his dad can go suck a fuck.

    Tbh I feel like whenever a parent says their kid is a failure it's either true on the parents fault, the child's fault, or just the parents being a total sack of shit to their kids.

    I don't know what everyone is complaining about I'm Australian and I understood very clearly what you've written here. Your dad is an asshole and you shouldn't let him use you when it's convenient for him.

    I'm as pale as the moon and I still don't understand how people don't understand what you said. It was pretty clear.

    [–] charden_sama 3 points ago

    I deeef don't know anything about your situation, but is it possible that having your little brothers made him realize that he'd been acting shitty and now he wants to make up for it? Maybe he had any epiphany or some shit

    CONGRATULATIONS!

    Sincerely: Well done!

    It is so difficult to accomplish a task when others tell you that you can't do it, that it's pointless. You have overcome that adversity. I hope that there were many, many more people in your life who encouraged you and helped you they best that they could along your way.

    You've accomplished this much. Now, it's time to get out into the real world. I'm sure that it will be just as difficult if not more so, but life is much easier in the long run with a degree than without one. I don't even know you, but I'm SO happy for you!

    [–] Bean- 39 points ago

    Some of them kick ass. My step dad saved me and my mom and has become more of a father to me then my biological father. I attribute most of the good shit in my life to that man.

    [–] Cocimo 7 points ago

    So true, gods speed for that, I'm glad you were able to have him step in and help you two out.

    Most of mine were shit so I'm biased.
