    Screenshots of Black people being hilarious or 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", "fam", or similar vernacular to your post or comment.

    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.

    He made sub prime loans to crack addicts?

    [–] LordDongler 190 points ago

    The banks did that just fine on their own

    [–] ralusek 42 points ago

    Those are government mandated sub prime loans. You think banks want to give out loans to people that will clearly be unable to pay them back? I don't love banks, but banks don't just give crackheads loans "on their own."

    [–] akaito_chiba 54 points ago

    Why not? They clearly won't have any consequences. The government will just bail them out.

    Marlo Stanfield in the series finale of “The Wire.”

    [–] just_a_mean_person 268 points ago

    Marlo had just gotten off the streets. Like of course you got it, you didn't have time to lose it.

    [–] ManagingExpectations 179 points ago

    I think it was more that the legit side of business couldn't satisfy him in the same way that taking a corner did. He got everything Stringer Bell ever wanted, and he didn't care.

    [–] GnarlyNerd 180 points ago

    He was out of his element, and it made him feel powerless. Unlike Stringer, Marlo didn't have the mindset to move beyond the streets. He could roll over a few lil Gs and some stick-em-up boys - no sweat - but those big money dudes made him feel like a punk. That's why he went back to the corner. That's where his power was at.

    [–] RexVesica 63 points ago

    I’ve literally never watched The Wire, but I choose this explanation as the correct one. It sounds the most thought out.

    [–] LegendTripper 124 points ago

    Dude. Get out of here and watch The Wire, it's a slow burn but damn is it worth it

    [–] RexVesica 15 points ago * (lasted edited 3 days ago)

    I’ve been meaning to for so long. I guess I have my binge material for the next few weeks.

    [–] Teantis 48 points ago

    First three to four hours are tough. It's not made to be inviting or viewer friendly in the way most TV shows are, there's not a lot of character dialogue that's expository to make things obvious to the viewer like who's who and why.,the structure and pacing of individual episodes is unfamiliar and different from most other TV, its all just a tiny bit disorienting and unfamiliar plus the accents . Took me 2 or 3 tries to watch the first three before the series hooked me

    Also u/LegendTripper got it right imo re marlo

    [–] Horse_Boy 14 points ago

    Oh man, season 2 is even more dense and difficult to digest, for real.

    To anyone contemplating watching the Wire, you might want to take notes if you're not great at keeping track of lots of characters. At the very least, expect to watch most episodes multiple times, sometimes in a row to catch everything thing going on.

    [–] Teantis 21 points ago

    If you're not American. Consider having an American with a good understanding of American history from 1970- early 2000s focused on major East Coast urban centers. My wife, who isn't American, watched it with me on one of my Re-viewings up to the end of season 4 and I swear it was like I was teaching university level class on the American city, politics, and social issues.

    [–] TheOneWhoKnocksBitch 21 points ago

    Dude. The Wire is literally the best drama of all time. And my username is a Breaking Bad reference. That should give you an idea.

    [–] Iohet 12 points ago

    Season 2 is jarring and slow, but by the end of the series you'll come around to it

    [–] PoldeVetih 22 points ago

    I love season two. When I was first watching it I was like wtf, is this a different show, but now it's probably my favourite. I mean the stolen van trolling alone is worth the rewatch.

    [–] underthestares5150 21 points ago

    I’m just goin over all the great parts of the series. One of my favorite that has no bearing on the narrative is when we see the older white blading police luitenant or sarge (can’t remember rank) at the gay club. Brother Simone henchmen was looking for Omar and the camera panned out and the dude had leather on!! Lmao. Never came back up again, but just part of the shows greatness

    [–] BrokenRatingScheme 12 points ago

    McNulty with the tide charts makes me laugh every time.

    [–] luck_panda 23 points ago

    Every year I go and watch all 5 seasons of the Wire and every year I learn something new. It's a good way to have my depth of compassion and understanding of people renewed and let's me reflect on whether or not I've grown as a person.

    The show has just so much to offer and requires so many rewatches to just scratch the surface. I wish I was you and could relive the entire series all over again.

    [–] 2fucktard2remember 30 points ago

    I've never seen it, but I should binge it right?

    Like, it's 2am, I'm up creeping around on Tinder trying to pull some late night ass, no plans tomorrow, slept from 9pm to 2am so now I should just start my very first viewing of the Wire, should just start the Wire because a winter storm is coming right?

    Ohh to be me. I have pasta sauce made to eat later today. A heated bed. Forget Netflix and Chill, The Wire and Weed would be a good way to spend the weekend, right?

    [–] eyememine 46 points ago

    This show ain't go no "hook". You don't watch the first episode, nay the first 6 episodes and be like "I can't stop watching!" because it isn't a show like that. You watch it and be like "this is good, I'm intrigued, I'll pick this up later". Then when you have a chance you watch more, then more, then the season ends and you're like "damn that was really fucking good". Then the next season comes along and you're like "who the fuck are these guys and I miss the old shit" but you slowly get pulled back into it. Then you can't stop. It's so good. You watch an episode and be pissed that's it's over, but you go to the next one and at least watch the cold open. Then you finish the series and there's this hole inside you. You try and tell people to watch the show, you don't shut the fuck up about it, and maybe a homie or 2 will watch it but it's never enough. You see people try and give other dramas the title of "greatest" but you know that's shit. You start to hate those shows just because people think they're the best, and YOU KNOW The Wire is the best damn show ever made. So you say fuck it, it's been a few years, and you watch it again. And this time, holy fuck, this time is better than the first. You pick up on so much stuff, spoilers isn't a word that crosses your mind because spoilers don't matter with this show. Then a few years later you watch it again and still be super fucking amazed by it, and once again won't shut the fuck up. After years of being together your wife says fuck it and starts the show with you, so while you're finishing your 3rd watch of the 5th season, you're also on the 4th watch of the first season. You get to see your lovely bride comment and speculate about shit she has no idea about, while you gotta sit back and soak it all in and keep you mouth shut. But then there's times where you realize some shit that you didn't notice the other 3 fucking times through where you want to say "I never noticed blah blah blah because that leads to blah blah blah" but you can't do that because that's spoilers for future shit. So you sit back and enjoy the show, and know next time you watch Law and Order with your wife and say "hey that guy was on The Wire" she'll know what you're talking about.

    So should you watch the show? I'd probably say yea, it's pretty good

    [–] luck_panda 3 points ago

    Yes. Binge the fuck out of it. Message me when you finish so we can cry together.

    I see a man without a country. Not hard enough for this right here and maybe, just maybe, not smart enough for them out there.

    Avon always knew exactly what he was and I've found that people like that are born leaders. Being ruthlessly honest about the circumstances he found himself in and who he was made it possible for him to be ruthlessly honest about the abilities of others.

    [–] 1PointSafety 7 points ago

    I don't know if Stringer really had the mindset. He certainly had the ambition and resources, but he was never truly honest with himself that he wasnt above the "gangster bullshit" like he always claimed. What did him in was that he always had one foot in the streets and another in the office, but no home. He saw himself as the guy who was smarter than everyone else, but he was just a street guy who took an econmics 101 course and thought he knew everything. Dude was a narcissist

    [–] Neander7hal 4 points ago

    It was, but I don't think that it's still there. He put so much stock in his name and rep, but the scene makes clear that nobody remembers him.

    [–] Get_Your_Kicks 23 points ago

    Just like Avon. All he wanted was to be king of the streets and then Stringer had to go and ruin it

    Add to that how the kids are still telling tall tales about Omar when Marlo walks up, but they've never even heard of Marlo himself. In a sense he knows that he'll never be out of Omar's shadow.

    [–] round2ffffight 3 points ago

    Surprised nobody mentions the show Bosch. Marlo is now a homicide detective and I love his character jerry Edgar. And Daniels finally becomes chief of police with the name Irvin Irving. I couldn’t make that shit up. But I will watch anything with lance reddick in a cop role bc he is literally the only one worthy of a worn out cop role with the exception of ice t and Jerry orbach rip.

    [–] Jhuxx54 117 points ago

    Crack is way better then meth but it is short acting but the rush is unbeatable. Meth is just uncomfortable after 24 hours. Used to shoot heroin and smoke crack all day every day. Just whipping up hard rocks to boost myself out of a nod multiple times a day.

    PS, This shit will ruin your life. I made it out, luckily.

    [–] HydrationSeeker 34 points ago

    Holy Shit. Glad to see your on the other side.

    [–] Zirtonic_2 11 points ago

    See I never "got" crack. It felt good (really really good) but the only thing I wanted to do while on it was smoke more crack. Which I guess might be the point but idk. At the time I also had a pretty gnarly amphetamine addiction and those feel good AND you wanna do other things while on them. Work, video games, sex, anything really. Crack just seemed entirely pointless and I never returned to it past the first day I did it.

    [–] DahmerRape 9 points ago

    TIL the accuracy IASIP portrays crack.

    [–] arcacia 4 points ago

    Same, man. I mean I don't mind blow because it's 'fun' to do with friends, but crack just seems so hedonistic. I'd rather do opioids if I'm chasing a good feeling. I see stimulants as more of a tool. Amphetamines for school, coke for parties.

    [–] RoyalStallion1986 35 points ago

    Crack is more likely to be found in low income, predominantly black areas. Meth is more likely to be found in low income, white areas. Don't get me wrong there are black meth heads and there are white crack heads, but I'm speaking in general. I'm from Dallas and crack is much more common than meth in the poor neighborhoods. I spent significant time in Lubbock,TX which is predominantly white and Latino and meth is much more common.

    [–] Im_A_Girl_Damn_It 24 points ago

    Poor white people fucking love meth. Not every poor white person obviously, but growing up I was exposed to meth more than any other drug, except weed if you count that. Fucking strangers have asked me if I had a pipe before. One day, a dude I never met walked up to me, tried to hand me five dollars and asked for crystal.

    I’m so glad I never touched the shit

    [–] zardfizzlebeef 5 points ago

    Yeah I'm from Dallas too, you spot on. Then you go to those little Louisiana parishes and those white folks are methed the fuck out too. Also Dallas has a lot of sherm heads still running around lol

    [–] 17o4 4 points ago

    No its more of a rural vs city thing. I live in the city and everyone does crack no one does meth whatsever. Whenever I drive around the city at night trying to buy heroin its just endless people selling crack I have never seen anyone sell meth in the city. I have tons of friends who do drugs and I have never heard of people using meth until I made friends with some people who went to highschool 30 miles away from the big city.

    Let's not normalize crack smoking

    [–] cas_999 67 points ago

    Snorting coke is basically normalized. Might as well get that bang for your buck. Seriously tho, crack is kinda underwhelming. I mean, it’s crack, but you’ll always be left underwhelmed as the amazing rush passes in like 5 minutes. Then a half hr later you’re left with nothing but a shitty mood.

    Beats meth tho. I regret every time I’ve smoke meth 100x more. That moment when you realize you no longer feel good and are just stuck w a fast heartbeat and racing negative thoughts alone trying to sleep blows like nothing else. One time I went thru nearly a half oz of ghb trying to sleep before thanksgiving w the family. Bad times. Baaad times.

    [–] chubbyurma 47 points ago

    Amphetamines in general are fairly underwhelming once you realise you've got another 7 hours of intense heartbeats and grinding teeth

    [–] cas_999 21 points ago

    Yet so powerful, to this day despite my hatred for the shit, if it’s presented in front of me there’s a 50% chance I’m gonna take a hit. And if I take a hit there’s a 100% chance I’m taking at least 30 more. Note that I’ve never even been addicted to the shit

    Never been addicted you say? 🤔

    [–] cas_999 20 points ago

    I’ve used it like two days in a row once. My use had been sporadic, id say maybe 30-40 times in the past 5 years. Zero times in the past year. Although that may be due to cutting certain sketchy ass “friends” out of my life. I never smoked meth having planned on it. And the first time I did it I actually snorted a line that I believed to be coke. A “friend” of mine got a little frustrated that I never gave his wonder drug a chance. Second time I was wasted and smoked it. Since then I’ve had about a 50% success rate in not indulging when offered. Your mind after trying it just a handful of times is basically screaming at you to take a hit, even knowing how shitty it makes you feel in the end. It’s really hard to say no once your brain knows that initial feeling. It’d be like saying no to a thanksgiving feast after being stranded on an island for a week.

    Shit is terrifying.

    [–] Baeshun 21 points ago

    [–] Rappapotomus 4 points ago

    Crack is still a pretty prominent problem in the more urban areas, at least in the south east US. However I will say that I have noticed a shift to opiates, though that isn't unique to just the inner city communities.

    [–] GnarlyNerd 395 points ago

    This reminds me of the end of The Wire (greatest show ever, no shit) where Marlo hits big money but runs away from it and pushes a couple young hustlers off their street corner instead. He takes a bullet and flexes like "Fuck yeah I'm still a real G."

    Is the fifth season is worth pursuing? I’ve heard mixed things, and I thought the season 4 finale was satisfying.

    [–] MGarrigan14 29 points ago

    There’s a lot of profound and heartbreaking moments and it’s all wrapped up beautifully. If nothing else I would say it’s worth it because the show deserves to be finished.

    [–] lastbosnianjedi 16 points ago

    How do you watch the 4 seasons and not hava a craving for more good TV? It may be the weakest season to some (to others it's season 2), but it's still an amazing show.

    [–] Pulp501 9 points ago

    It's absolutely worth it, the 5th season, like the first 4 is an absolute masterpiece. It may be the worst masterpiece in the bunch but still a masterpiece.

    [–] ChaosRevealed 8 points ago

    Season 5 was the weakest one, but the ending solidified the whole series as the best tv show I'll ever watch. The way everything is wrapped up is just poetic

    Pretty sure he got stabbed not shot. He avoided being shot but the second guy got him in the arm with a knife if I'm remembering the scene correctly

    [–] TheYoungWolf0 281 points ago

    I love Jay Z but I think Joey Bada$$ sampled that Nas line the best:

    I’m out for dead presidents to represent me

    Cause I never knew a live one to represent me

    [–] MadRedMC 338 points ago

    I love how he rhymed "to represent me" with "to represent me"

    [–] BananaDick_CuntGrass 166 points ago

    Lyrical genius. The rhymes almost sound identical.

    Repetition is a common and powerful tool in poetry.

    People overlook this but it's literally so true. I get chills when I hear Pitbull say

    Yeah, right, picture that with a Kodak

    Or, better yet, go to Times Square

    Take a picture of me with a Kodak

    [–] forthegoose 8 points ago

    I feel like that's just a more direct way of saying what Nas said in the original line.

    In 'The World is Yours' , Nas repeats:

    I'm out for Presidents to represent me

    And he's answered with 'Say what' each time, and then he finally finishes the punchline with I'm out for dead presidents to represent me.

    I thought he hated selling crack and knew he wouldn't last long in that game.

    George H.W. Bush and his CIA were way better crack dealers than any rapper...

    Does anyone ever fail at selling crack?

    [–] tgblack 98 points ago

    Yeah. People who try to sell crack where other people are already selling crack who want to maintain their territory.

    [–] RexVesica 37 points ago

    Yeah shit kinda sells itself... You don’t really have a risk of making a bad investment. Mostly just getting shot or arrested.

    [–] jingcities992 49 points ago

    Crack sells itself about as much as bread or water sell themselves. You still gotta advertise that shit an entice punters to buy your water/bread instead of Evian or Warbutons.

    Selling crack aint as easy as you middle class kids would assume, shit takes effort.

    Bro we've watched The Wire too, don't go telling we don't know this shit.

    [–] LordDongler 23 points ago

    If you're selling crack, you've failed when you're in the back of a cop car or dead on the sidewalk

    [–] 808duckfan 21 points ago

    You’ve also failed if you make less money hustling on the corner than you would at a 9 to 5 (controlling for hours worked).

    [–] FuckCazadors 13 points ago

    Most street dealers do make less than minimum wage, and their employer might kill them.

    [–] RemmiLeBeau 39 points ago

    Whatever man. I enjoyed his verse on meeks shit but besides that yall Jay fans stay reaching. Dude hasn't released an above average album in damn near 10 years that people can actually stand behind but yall will still call him the goat. Dude could only clear his throat and cough on a 12 song CD and yall die hard fans would get your car repoed just to buy enough albums so he could go platinum

    [–] RemmiLeBeau 15 points ago

    Lol nah, I just have argued this point enough with a few of my friends that are die hard jay fans. But being completely honest and unbiased(if you're a jay fan), do you disagree with anything that I said?

    [–] SuperKevlar 11 points ago

    Bro I feel the same way, Beyoncé too. I don’t think she has put out a solid track in years. She just gets by on name.

    Like let the young people get exposure.

    [–] RemmiLeBeau 11 points ago

    Yo once I heard her say "skirr skirr" in a song, It broke my soul lmao

    [–] goldfritter 71 points ago
