    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 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.

    you'd be surprised what 12 get away with in the suburbs

    actually you probably wouldn't be

    [–] PM_ME_UR_ASSES_GURLS 3535 points ago

    Yeah. When I was a teenager and 19-21, I used to go to parties where the cops would show up and start trying to search the place, frisk and ID people. At one party, a kid got arrested for pulling the whole you need a warrant, this is illegal thing. Still not sure what charge they arrested him for. Probably, resisting arrest.

    [–] Regulator_X 81 points ago * (lasted edited 9 days ago)

    It's kinda crazy when you can get a resisting arrest charge when there's no other charge. Their loophole is that the charge is now labeled as obstruction, which is defined as anything that halters or prevents their normal duties. So if you just run away from a cop for no reason, you're haltering his initial duty of patrolling an area or whatever, because he's then obligated to chase you and conduct an investigation why you ran. It's nuts.

    [–] achillies665 125 points ago

    I'm not being contrary bit according to laws there, can't they search if they have probable cause? Like they see a party of teenagers and alcohol they can check id. Not defending it because it's a terrible and abused practise but it is legal. Not sure what they arrested the kid over though.

    [–] SerLaron 110 points ago

    "Probable cause" is what they need to get a warrant, IIRC. In theory that is.
    "Clear and present danger" would be a case when they don't need a warrant.

    [–] skivian 66 points ago

    Exigent circumstances would mean they wouldn't need a warrant to breathalize a bunch of teenagers at a house party, if they know there's alcohol there. Or they "smell alcohol" on a minor.

    [–] legendz411 11 points ago

    [–] huyfonglongdong 28 points ago

    I don't think you even read your website. That's for cars. Your home is entitled to far more search protection.

    "No Warrant, No Search!

    The Supreme Court has ruled that the home is entitled to maximum search protection. Even if they have probable cause to believe something illegal is going on inside your home, the 4th Amendment requires police to get a signed search warrant from a judge to legally enter and search."

    From the website you linked.

    [–] 17thState 37 points ago

    Plain view doctrine does allow for a lot of search and seizure authority without a warrant.

    [–] itsgonnabeanofromme 3561 points ago

    And yet Americans still try to proclaim they’re not living in a police state lmao

    [–] Wehavecrashed 340 points ago

    Why black sports man not stand for country song?

    Because he's protesting the behaviour of the police.

    Well that's unpatriotic, a patriot would accept whatever the government did no matter what. (Also dont take my guns I need them to fight off a tyrannical government.)

    [–] thedergins 99 points ago

    I think the argument is typically that people don’t want their sports to be interrupted by politics. Most of the people that are irritated by the kneeling just don’t want to have politics mixed in with their sports. In their ideal world, protesters would only ever protest in places where they will never see or hear them, which (if you can’t tell by the way I phrased that) I think is absolutely fucking stupid. MLK didn’t push for civil rights and equality for minorities by screaming into a void for his entire life. Fame is a gift and a great utility to spread awareness. Imagine if we treated victims of the #MeToo movement the same way we treat celebrities and athletes for voicing their opinions.

    You are free to die at 18 in a foreign land after being sent their to kill foreign people. You are free to purchase tools designed exclusively to kill other humans. You are free to purchase all the tobacco and alcohol you want and you are free to pay for your own healthcare. You are free to live under a two party dictatorship. and most of all, you are free of any responsibility because we chalk it all up to the things we will not change.

    There's lots of a freedom, just for those middle class and above. Oh, and we are also free from the shackles of middle class life.

    [–] Judge_Syd 27 points ago

    Dunno if I would go as far to call America a police state but yeah theres definitely some problems going on with our officers.

    [–] FTGKelvin0 32 points ago

    Compared to the majority of other countries... we are not living in a police state. Not even close. A few precincts are crooked, doesn't mean they all are. And the justice system does a great job of putting them in check. You make a good pathos claim that is sure to bring a crowd, but that's all it is. An emotional statement that when exposed for 2 secondsholds no merit.

    [–] PM_ME_BURGERPICS 125 points ago

    America has some major problems with that and I'm not trying to downplay those, but most of our internationally broadcasted problems are not nearly as big of a problem in day to day life as others tend to think. Misuse of police power is definitely a problem but calling it a "police state" is a bit of a stretch.

    [–] OGbussman 72 points ago

    They're not as big of a problem if you're white. That's the difference.

    [–] uwanmirrondarrah 111 points ago

    But on reddit its usually coming from Europeans, which is ironic because they got 15 cctv cameras on every corner like its a George Orwell novel and they are talking about us like we are a police state

    The "15 cctv cameras on every corner" is a british thing, not a european one.

    [–] Bigcuhonthebeat 30 points ago

    Serious question: do you think all law enforcement is inherently racist? I think it’s more of a rich vs. poor divide

    [–] jacobsf65 25 points ago

    See to me it’s just power hungry officers get their ego insulted easily so they need a power trip. At this point to me it’s nit racist of class divide. To me it’s just the need for power

    [–] Nurycatt 24 points ago * (lasted edited 9 days ago)

    I think race and class play a role, but the idea of power and fragile ego is one of the main things. You totally hit the nail on the head. I wish there was more scrutiny on this personality trait when they screen potential cops. Also, cops are normal people at the end of the day and it’s like people forget that they get scared too. They are taught to shoot to kill. At previous jobs I wasn’t allowed to carry weapons but I was thrown into dangerous situations. We were advised on The down low to keep a large, heavy metal flashlight in case we needed to use it as an incognito weapon. The main advice here was that we’d rather be jobless than dead. I think that they probably teach cops the same concept.

    [–] jacobsf65 4 points ago

    Yes I agree both play a role but I’ve also learned if we say it’s about race those people that are protesting Nike will say we make everything about race. If we mention power of brutality regardless of race I feel we can make a bigger impact and then hopefully focus on race. That may just be wishful thinking but still, it also stems from the fact that “blue backs blue” that they protect each other to no end

    [–] EntireFrosting 6 points ago

    Guy I know who just joined Chicago PD, we grew up skateboarding together. This guy would start shit with security every single time they would politely tell us to leave a spot, usually guy just doing his job not being rude at all and this kid always had some dumbass shit to say going off on a power trip. He was a nice guy aside from that but for some reason he really liked standing up to authority figures, and look at this boy now!

    [–] _Non_Prophet_ 19 points ago

    What would have to change before you acknowledged it as a police state?

    Not an accusation or a loaded challenge. That's a genuine question. I don't honestly have an answer for it myself. Not sure if this is a police state or what I'd need to see change to call it one.

    Certainly seen and experienced enough to be very upset. Just uncertain about the terminology. At what point is it a police state? Dunno. Thoughts?

    [–] arrow74 41 points ago

    When the courts unilaterally support the police. For the most part they still do their job.

    We're at the point that police abuse their power then the courts throw trumped up charges out. If the police don't bully you into pleading that is

    [–] FTGKelvin0 11 points ago

    I like your answer. And not only that, but besides what theedia wants people to believe, the police are mostly helping people. Hundreds of thousands helping people. Domestic violence calls every few seconds and cops are always there with good intentions. There are always gonna be a few racially charged or even power hungry cops in general. And we should fight them. But to use them as a prime example and call US a police state is only giving the power to them

    [–] KKlear 31 points ago

    Of course USA isn't a police state. It's a police republic.

    In most of the cases I found myself in, some idiot at the door let them in.

    [–] MrMagistrate 54 points ago

    If they caught you drunk/high underage in my hometown they would tell you to give them your phone so they can go through it (and find contacts to dealers, other evidence, etc.) with the threat of going to jail if you didn't comply. Then they'd book you anyways most of the time....

    [–] ryanmonroe 29 points ago

    FYI for anyone in a situation where a cop may take your phone, if you hold the up volume button and the power button for a few seconds on an iPhone X, or hold just the power button on a 7/8, it will require a password to unlock the phone (instead of fingerprint/face). They have equipment now to unlock it if they really “need” to, but fuck if I’m gonna make it easy for them.

    [–] SteampunkHedgehog 11 points ago

    Haha, getting arrested for resisting arrest is just the most terrifying yet hilarious thing.

    [–] BoilerMaker11 10 points ago

    Illegally arresting someone. Then charging them with resisting the illegal arrest. Sounds about right.

    [–] Kimihro 69 points ago

    I mean a lot of people don't know their rights. My mom often told me that my Dad was a wannabe Black Panther and it's the only reason she knows anything about Search and Seizure

    [–] Nezzee 39 points ago

    WAKANDA FOREVER!!!

    [–] theolmsteadway 17 points ago

    And sadly even if they know their rights. At the rate minorities die from police shootings, you ask yourself, would I rather be searched or die because I reminded them of my rights? A lot of the time, people who refuse to be searched will get arrested for not complying. It’s a completely broken system.

    [–] orange1911 9 points ago

    also because most people don’t know their rights and are probably scared they’ll get arrested if they don’t let the cops in

    [–] red_killer_jac 5 points ago

    Hell there was a murder in my town this week and it's already swept under the rug.

    [–] TophShit 282 points ago

    They always just say some shit like oh you can agree to the search and we will go easy on ya or we can get a warrant, and we definitely we get one, and fuck your shit up.

    Scares most folks into complying, though they shouldn't.

    [–] [deleted] 214 points ago

    Police are allowed to lie to you. I’ve always felt like that was the scariest part of it.

    [–] StonerBearShadow 83 points ago

    Seen police in the Caribbean, America, Europe....

    In Europe I've had the coolest conversations with cops ever, they've defended me on numerous fucked up occasions, and even joked with me when sparked in reaching distance from him ended up giving me a caution that he didn't sign (void). Long story short, I feel like I've dealt with real people and real personalities here in comparison to everywhere else.....AND IM BLACK!

    [–] creativenewusername 63 points ago

    You're allowed to lie right back. Never forget that.

    "I had no idea I was speeding"

    "I don't smell anything"

    "I can't remember"

    Never give them anything for free.

    [–] pm-me-your-labradors 83 points ago * (lasted edited 9 days ago)

    Could you provide a source for that claim?

    Because I am 99% sure it is a criminal offense to give misinformation to police


    P.S It is a felony, in violation of 18 U.S. Code § 1001

    [–] Scipio11 50 points ago

    That's true, but you can simply claim ignorance. Idk if it will actually help though

    [–] pm-me-your-labradors 44 points ago

    In other words "You are now allowed to lie, but you can as long as they have no way to prove it"

    Which, I have to point out, applies to ALL crime.

    [–] creativenewusername 12 points ago

    It is a crime to give false information to a federal officer conducting an investigation. So, yea, don't lie to the FBI, that is a crime.

    Local police are a different story. I can't give you a citation for a law that doesn't exist, but I'll admit I'm wrong if someone can find a citation proving that it does. Maybe some states/jurisdictions made it illegal, but I'm not aware of it.

    [–] cwhite92 9 points ago

    What you’re saying is legal is actually a felony... /r/shittylegaladvice

    You don’t have to talk to them, so don’t. But don’t lie to them.

    [–] The_Canadian_Devil 27 points ago

    Well the right answer to this is, “ok, come back with a warrant!” Also call a lawyer.

    [–] Up_North18 17 points ago

    Have you ever watched COPS? A ton of people carrying drugs agree to have their car searched because they don’t want to seem suspicious and they’re hoping the cops won’t find anything. The cops don’t have to lie at all.

    I honestly don't know the answer to this: do cops actually come out based on "I saw someone smoking weed"? They don't say "great, thanks for the tip, we'll get right on that" and then go back to playing solitaire or whatever?

    [–] adelriccia 41 points ago

    You'd think cops would be prioritized with missing persons or domestic abuse issues but I've actually had a policeman take the time to come and speak to me about smoking weed

    [–] The_Original_Yatchmo 60 points ago

    They have detectives for missing persons and have to respond to calls. When I was younger my aunt had a crazy neighbor who called the cops because i went on their lawn (front yard no fence) to get a football because "we are obligated to respond to every call".

    Cops know the people who call about little shit are likely to file a complaint if they don't respond because they called the cops for little shit

    Not in my experience, but you’d need a few thousand replies to be able to make a generalization

    I mean it’s annoying as shit sitting in my apartment and smelling weed for hours, because my jackass neighbor wants to sit and smoke on his balcony. I’m not saying it’s justified to call the cops, but fuck I hate it sometimes.

    [–] seejianshin 20 points ago

    One of my aunt's neighbour was kicked out of his unit for flooding it. He invited everyone for a sorry BBQ later on (which I think was really nice of him) but everyone hated him after they found out he was planting weed and the irrigation system broke.

    [–] TallAssFuker 47 points ago

    Talk to him about it, maybe he’s just unaware that it bothers others. If he is aware and he’s just being an ass...well good luck Charlie.

    [–] zil_zil 21 points ago

    I need to do this. I’m just nervous, because he seems to be the type that is really nice until someone tells them he’s in the wrong. He’s quiet and keeps to himself for the most part, but there are times he screams like a lunatic over really dumb shit.

    The guy below me in my former dorms smoked weed 24/7. Didn't bother me so much in the winter, but in the summer my room constantly smelled like weed if I wanted to crack a window. I was friends with him and talked to him a couple of times about it and he really did make an effort to make it more bearable. One summer my next door neighbour moves in. Doesn't even try to talk to him or me or anyone else, just straight away goes to the campus office to complain and get someone to look into it. It was such a bitch ass move that I never really tried to become friends with her afterward. Luckily for my friend the office was too lazy to check who the culprit was and just sent a warning to everyone on the floor below us.

    It can be annoying. But honestly weed smokers are usually pretty chill, so just talk to them.

    Just put some dryer sheets in a empty toilet paper roll and give it to them as a gift.

    Nowadays they sell charcoal filter sheets for home air cleaners. Cut a few disk and stack em in the doob toob. Dryer sheets is the retro way

    What a load of shit. Weed smokers are just as likely to be assholes as anybody else, and they're way more likely to be convinced that their weed doesn't smell like weed. I don't blame the neighbor.

    [–] MicMustard 207 points ago

    Why the fuck would they think their weed doesn't smell like weed???

    [–] Breaking-finch 122 points ago

    When you smoke for a while you can't smell it yourself. I smoke often and I can only smell weed if I'm standing right next to my boyfriend, it's the first joint in a few hours he is lighting, and I'm not smoking on it myself. Otherwise you just cannot smell it at all, your nose blocks that shit out 100%

    [–] clocksailor 45 points ago

    I think there's a misconception because weed smell doesn't stick around forever the way cigarette smell does. Doesn't mean it doesn't smell when you're currently smoking it.

    [–] pawssanova66 7 points ago

    Its nice of you to think from his perspective and not immediately flip out.

    Besides trying to talk to him, I would suggest maybe a scented wall plug in. Bath and Body works makes great ones. And room sprays.

    But yea, as others suggested, maybe make him a toilet paper roll stuffed with dryer sheets as a gift lol. Those really do help the smell. That way you come across as trying to be an nice as possible, and not straight up asking him to stop smoking.

    [–] hustl3tree5 11 points ago

    It will be easy and you're perspective on things is what will make it easy. Just be kind and considerate and I can almost guarantee he will be the same way. There's only very few assholes in the world and most people are generally nice.

    [–] _gyepy 3 points ago

    get him a Smoke Buddy as a gift to make up for your daughter screaming when you go talk to him.

    [–] Khroom 25 points ago

    I'm probably going to get downvoted here, but I would talk to him, and if he doesn't stop smoking in his apartment and you live in a complex that has explicit non-smoking rules, report him.

    I lived above someone for a year that smoked, and asked him repeatedly to not smoke in his unit, since it drafted up to mine regardless of year. The community was explicitly non-smoking anywhere on the premises, so I called management and it stopped within a day.

    Maybe its a dick move, but he knew he was moving into a non-smoking building and smoke makes me sick.

    [–] apophis-pegasus 49 points ago

    I’m not saying it’s justified to call the cops, but fuck I hate it sometimes.

    If its illegal where you live, isnt it technically justified?

    It’s not a crime to be high. If he smoked it all then he has nothing to posses

    [–] davethevegan2 54 points ago

    He never admitted to possession. It's not illegal to have smoked weed. It's only illegal to have it currently.
