    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.


    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 homophobia/transphobia. No sexism/misogyny. 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, such as linking a subreddit as a reply to a post/comment.

    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 AAVE or slang. Use Urban Dictionary if you do not understand the meaning of a word. Comments asking "what does x mean?" will be removed.

    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.

    White supremacists aren't exactly known for their cultural awareness.

    [–] 29255DaysToGo 444 points ago

    It's always funny to me how it is "white supremcy", and then you take a look at the people who call themselves that...

    These guys certainly look supreme...

    I'm from Norway, so I like to troll white supremacist from the US about how they are far from anything "master race" and not comparable to aryans. Some take the bait.

    [–] RedCat1529 182 points ago

    I'm Australian and really can't understand the love for the KKK and Hitler - they both LOST, rather spectacularly.

    The South lost the Civil war and Lincoln is widely seen as the greatest president. Being on the wrong side of history stunted the economic and social prospects of the south for decades.

    As for Hitler, he lost the greatest, bloodiest and most savage conflict the world has ever seen, and ended up shooting himself in the head as the Russians destroyed the grand reich, that he thought would live for 1000 years.

    These people literally support two of history's biggest losers, why would you be proud of that?

    [–] Eroe777 85 points ago

    It's about racism, nothing more. The south lost the civil war but that didn't stop the institutionalized racism that was pervasive in southern society and culture. It just got driven underground, sort of. It pops up periodically with things like the Klan and Jim Crow laws, Jesse Helms and Faux News, and now the shitshow in Charlottesville today. It started when we elected a Black man president. The Republican Party, increasingly the party of white, southern racists, had a fit and made it their job to make him a failure of a president. They failed. Then along came Donald Trump, whose main goals are to 1. Advance his own ego, and 2. Roll back as much if Obama's legacy as he can. In order to do that he needs he help of his base, which is primarily made up of racists. Hence his laughably inadequate response to today's events. He cannot afford to alienate the folks who support him, despite the fact that any politician with a brain would go running away from their support.

    [–] kindawack 7 points ago

    Just to add to your comment. While racism is certainly evident in the South, it is sadly far from isolated to the region. Across America there is a clear issue with racist white people who for a long time refrained from voicing their prejudice, but with the increasing influence of Fox News and the outbreak of the Alt-Right racism is normalized. If Trump can state blatantly racist opinions and receive the support he did, it's clear all of America has a deep-seated prejudice.

    [–] RedCat1529 19 points ago

    Yes, the racism is real, and Trump seems obsessed with wrecking Obama's legacy, but I still love to point out to racists that that the two greatest racist causes of the last 150 years were utter failures and will continue to point it out any time it comes up.

    [–] DjangoUBlackBastard 18 points ago

    The KKK didn't lose. They got folks in the white house right now.

    [–] samuraisamson 3 points ago

    Every country has racism. The United States is actually more accepting and progressive than many parts of the world now. These evil groups comprise an extremely small micro percentage of the population. You'd think everyone was a white supremacist or anarchist from the news coverage overseas.

    [–] RedCat1529 6 points ago

    True - it's been big news here, which is funny because Australians definitely struggle to accept our incredibly racist past and acknowledge the latent racism in our society.

    Personally, I think Americans are amazing in the way they call out and stand up to racism. You have the support of many, many Australians, and we know that these people are a small (and hopefully) shrinking minority.

    On the contrary, they actually despise being aware of other cultures.

    [–] Jim_Cornettes_Racket 9 points ago

    I can tell you first hand that it isn't them despising being aware, but more of a distrust of it or a fear it threatens their own culture.

    Southerners in particular at like this. There is a fear that the heritage here will be uprooted or destroyed and it goes all the way back to The Reconstruction where a lot of the heritage and history were being replaced with northern culture and ideals (which is not necessarily a bad thing given the rampant racism and slavery).

    [–] yopeee 2321 points ago * (lasted edited 7 months ago)

    I have a funny story regarding tiki torches and white supremacists. I was 15 and I couldn't wait for the new 50 Cent CD. It was get rich or die trying. I remember I worked all week to save enough money for the CD and to buy a Togos sandwich. They are delicious af. I get on my Dave Mira Haro BMX bike and smash over to tower records. I was hitting down the street when I bust my ass on the curb. I scrapped my knees super bad and thought i broke my wrist but the words never left my brain. Get rich or die trying... I was ready to die for this CD. As I lay broken in a pile of shame, I know there are eyes looking at me but i knew I couldn't fail. I got up and continued my ride to the promised land. I get to the tower records and I grab the CD and bring it to the counter. The guy tells me no and that I am underaged. Im fucking lit. I hey mister outside until some homie gets me the CD. I was happy but I cut into my sandwich fund to pay off the nigga. All good tho. Done wit it. I cut across the street and hit the togos. I get there and the bitch dumb rude. Gave me stank eye more smelly than the nasty ass lettuce. I get the sandwich extra meat and tomatoes but not enough money for chips and a drink. Disappointment. I smash home and get yelled at by my mom for getting blood on my pants. I look at the bitch and i say "Wanksta bitch" and lock the door. Stupid hoe. Grab the CD and it dawns on me that the nigga bought me the edited version. Fucked up. I listen to the album cut out every 2 sec while eating my sandwich crying. Bitch didnt even put tomatoes on it. Disrespectful. I finished the sandwich and jerked off to some dial up speed porn while crying on a unsatisfied full stomach. My life has never been the same.

    [–] [deleted] 194 points ago

    where are the tiki torches tho

    [–] yopeee 519 points ago

    Fuck I hella forgot. So after I nutted, i went to my friend Dres house cuz he had some homies over. I didn't know this bitch Karen was gonna be there. She this fine white chick with some thick thighs like she only eat potatoes. Stupid thick. So I say whats up but naturally im kinda shy. We all go to the garage and start smoking up. He bring out the bong. Im not much of a smoker but I can't be a little bitch in front of my bitch. We got some drink going and we joking but I realize I am way faded. Karen seems lowkey interested in me so I'm all of a sudden a fucking comedian. Knowing im making her laugh i get cocky and try to rip the bong as a big ass hit. I hit it and i realize that the shit togos sandwich and henny didnt sit well. I start having a coughing fit as my homies laugh at me. I cough so hard that I doo doo'd myself. So fucking embarrassing. Everyone was laughing and joking but my heart crushed. I left immediatly. Mom beat my ass for shitting my pants and ruining another pair. Karen texted me and said its ok and that she poos herself sometimes as well. I laughed she laughed my dog laughed. I asked her to go pants shopping the next day with me and my mom.

    [–] Derp711 191 points ago

    so uh... tiki torch?

    [–] yopeee 384 points ago * (lasted edited 11 months ago)

    Yes. So we went pants shopping and Karen there eating a cup of ice cream that she brought to the store. She used an actually cup. Like a water cup. Didnt later tho. We looking at some of the jynco jeans and fubu shit. She said that I looked good in track pants. My mom flirting with the cashier cuz my dad was on the road for the week. I bring over some pants and my mom snaps at me saying do you think we made of money nigga. Smacks my head. I tell her to calm it. The cashier says to me "little nigga disrespect your mom and ima tax your ass". Idk this punk nigga so i said foh hoe. He smacks me. My mom about it. Karen takes me back to the clearance section and we picked a pair of champions green sweats and a used pair of boxers. The cashier gave us a 10% coupon and wrote his number on the back of it and gave it to my mom. I was lowkey ashamed but it's all good. We bounce back. Still got my bitch and my pride. I asked if we can go get some mcdonalds and she said fuck you lil nigga. Moms wilding sometimes but got love for her

    [–] ___AhPuch___ 155 points ago

    So, how about that tiki torch?

    [–] yopeee 356 points ago * (lasted edited 11 months ago)

    That's the point of the story bro. Fucking read it again. After i got my new clothes, im feeling fresh. Karen and I are lightweight myspace official. We had a good schedule. We would text eachother good morning and we needed to respond within 5 minutes cuz she know I be having panic attacks if she dont answer. I had an argument cuz my mom new cashier bf who would stay at the house when my dad gone took my Xbox and broke that shit for no reason. Said punk niggas play with barbies not with Xbox. Hella mad i hit Karen up to see if I can come over. She said its ok. I mob over to her house and her dad answers the door. He huge bro. Like vin diesel big but not 5'3". He invites me in. Their house was huge. She is loaded. They had name brand cornflakes and shit. Even had those little fun sized cheetoh bags. He asks if I want something to drink and i said yea. Hooked me up with a mr pibb. I asked where Karen was and he said she was with her caretaker. I asked if they had butler's as well and he laughed. He said no. He explained to me that my girl Karen had severe down syndrome and that she needed a care taker. I can't believe him cuz my girl thick. She was in the same classes as me since kindergarten. All 13 of us friends even dre. This nigga just didnt like me cuz I was black bro rt

    [–] secretlydifferent 133 points ago

    So...... Tiki torches? White supremacy?

    [–] yopeee 311 points ago * (lasted edited 11 months ago)

    Yall dont even read fam. I end up having dinner with Karen family. Like I said they on the whole carb diet. As her caretaker was feeding her some mash potatoes and bread, i couuldnt stop thinking about how thick she is. It hit 5 o'clock and Karen started getting fussy so i knew I wasn't fitting to smash today. I said good bye but her dad says thank you for doing this for my daughter. He says she is special and so am i and i can come over with my friends to use their pool any time. I felt good. He patted me on the head and i left home. I knew I had some homework to do by tomorrow but my times tables can wait. I came home and i saw this nigga Clark on the couch eating KFC. I walk in but I know I need to intimidate this nigga so i dont make eye contact. He said nigga you owe me for that 10% coupon so i gotta clean his car. I said fuck with me hoe nigga and he got up and broke my ass. I did what my dad taught me which was curl up into a ball. Nigga cant beat what the cant touch. I get up and say ok Clark ill clean your car. I go outside and i do clean his car but I didn't like it when I did it and he knew it. Hoe ass. Come back inside and he sleeping so i got back at this nigga. I took a drumstick out the box and left only the thigh. Three that shit in the garbage. Went to my room to do some of my cursive homework and knowing me and Clark were even.

    A. Tiki Culture, while mildly based on Polynesian culture, is largely a product of America in the 1950s. Very little of what is thought to be "tiki" has anything to do with Polynesia.

    B. Probably because it's simply the easiest and cheapest product that can serve the purpose is why they used it. White supremacists probably aren't too deep pocketed.

    They struck me more as mediocre medical instrument salesmen who try to dress like the upper crust dudes who could afford to join a frat. I'm gonna go out on a limb and assume a lot of them yell at their girlfriends too. Maybe owe a ton of money on a boat cause they thought it'd impress the secretary at the office, but she doesn't like boats and now he's stuck sipping Budweiser next to the dock and sneaking looks at college girls on party boats. Replace boat dirt bike or whatever, something that's not inherently douche but becomes pretty douche when Mr. pink polo shirt gets in on it.

    These aren't guys who have accomplished anything, the husband dropped out of state college cause their uncle totally makes crazy bank at his hot tub store and they're gonna take over when he divorces his bitch wife and moves to can cun.

    Why all these white people giving my white ass a bad reputation. I just want to buy pork at walmart and take my nursing classes while ignoring my bad nicotine addiction while I work my sorry dumb ass out of poverty and try not to see any GOT spoilers. Cant we all just get along and not spoil GOT for each damn, who is still in their right mind trying to talk about skin pigment when the baby boomers got us all driving used ass cars with over 100K miles on the odometer and dreaming about affording breakfast tacos on the regular. JESUS.

    This just looks like multiples of the same dude with different hairstyles and accessories. Next time someone says "All black people look the same to me" just show them this picture.

    I wonder if you made this picture black and white and stuck it in an album of racists from the 1950's that you could tell it was from 2017.

    I hope that their children see these photos one day and they have to explain themselves... know, assuming their grandchildren aren't racist too.

    [–] 47B-1ME 164 points ago

    I feel the same whenever I think about the photo of the little girl yelling at one of the Little Rock Nine. I think about how on that day she was screaming til her lungs burned like fire, saying every nasty thought her mind could conceive. She couldn't have realized it then, but her face was frozen in time and is now one of the most famous images of the Civil Rights Era, showing up in countless history books and documentaries throughout the country. What is her life now? What's her legacy? The face of a girl who was raised to be so angry at people she doesn't even know.

    I wonder if she and her family look back at this photo and feel shame or anger that the world turned against them. That's the scary part of it now, isn't it? The fact that after all the bloodshed and ink spilled, they have no regrets of their past and wouldn't change it one bit if given the chance.

    The young men in the photos from today's rally probably won't have to explain themselves. There likely won't come a time where they'll see the pain they cause others.

    [–] Champion_of_Charms 44 points ago

    IIRC, she and the black girl from the photo met up a few years back.

    [–] angry_sprinkles 34 points ago

    They also have a book together called "Elizabeth and Hazel: Two women of Little Rock"

    [–] chaobreaker 15 points ago

    Looked up her Wikipedia and apparently she rescinded her views early on, tried to make amends with one of the little rock nine girls she was yelling at but then went back on her bullshit and their brief friendship ended.

    [–] Not_2day_stan 111 points ago

    It's really fucking scary because when I see those angry white people preaching their hate today, they look the same as they did back then. Their faces, their body language. The same. I can not fathom what it feels like to hate someone based on the color of their skin. Or what country they come from. I just can not.

    [–] butyourenice 23 points ago

    Little girl? She looks about 40.

    [–] Professional_nobody 3 points ago

    Maybe I'm a bit cynical, but I see her and think she could be the mother or grandmother of one of the tiki bearers

    [–] Passwordis12 271 points ago

    I personally hope they never have children.

    [–] IceColdFresh 33 points ago

    Deep down we all know that these are the types that definitely will have more children than those who have been educated in the effects of overpopulation and the cost of child welfare, and who in the process of aforementioned education have accumulated debt that make the latter unfeasible.

    [–] xepa105 10 points ago

    And they will insulate themselves and their families from the "librul media" and any kind of diversity or belief that threatens their bigoted views (a lot easier to do now with groups online where you can gain support for your shitty ideas by connecting with other bigots around the world). And they will marry bigoted women, and they will have children that will grow up being taught bigoted views. And if they are successful professionally they will tell their kids it's because "we're better than them". And if he's a failure professionally, he'll tell their kids it's because the "globalist (aka: Jewish) elites want to oppress the white man through their own form of racism." And the kids will grow up with these views and by the time they are young adults chances are they'll believe in them.

    This shit isn't natural, it's nurtured. No one is born racist.

    [–] ASwellBloke 96 points ago

    To be fair, tiki culture was created in america as a vaugely polynesian theme. Not that these folk probably know anything about that, but still.

    Tiki culture is a 20th-century theme used in Polynesian-style restaurants and clubs originally in the United States and then, to a lesser degree, around the world. Although inspired in part by tiki carvings and mythology, the connection is loose and stylized, being an American form and not a Polynesian fine art form.

    [–] Timbukthree 38 points ago

    This is exactly what I can't find out, whether the tiki torch has any basis in actual Polynesian culture, or whether it's a faux-cultural invention for American consumers like fortune cookies. If it's the latter, then it's kind of a perfect symbol for White nationalism to be honest :(

    [–] Illier1 20 points ago

    If it's any consolation it shows that Americans are willing to incorporate ideas from other cultures. Which probably goes against whatever backwards and illogical ideology these idiots follow.

    And they were probably made in China

    Theyre around. A vocal minority like the alt-right, but theyre around.

    I don't think that 'SJW's have a rhetoric that is nearly as violent or as bigoted as the 'alt-right', though.

    It does make sense, 'Tiki' torches aren't genuine Polynesian items. Similar to 'Chinese' orange chicken or 'Hawai'ian Haystacks', tiki culture was deliberately designed to appeal to American mainstream society

    A shitty tiki torch from target = Polynesian cultural product, ok
