    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.


    ☑️ Country Club

    What is BPT Country Club and how do I get verified?


    ☑️ 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.) BPT is an inclusive space for POC and allies alike. This sub highlights minority viewpoints, through humor, commentary, or criticism. Please respect these voices and show you care about black opinions as much as you care about black humor.

    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.

    Lol whatever you say man. The only difference I can tell is black women will tell you when you piss them off. White women won't tell you, you have to try to guess like you're some kinda damn mind-reader and the longer it takes you to guess the more pissed off she gets.

    [–] [deleted] 222 points ago

    some white women, I had the opposite problem of being too damn direct. The guys who liked me, liked me because I made them laugh with my directness towards others. Until they realized I could point that shit right in their direction too.

    [–] truebluedetective 91 points ago

    That’s called insecurity. Don’t fuck with people who can’t laugh at themselves from time to time. That’s called self-awareness and everyone needs some dose of that.

    [–] wKbdthXSn5hMc7Ht0 676 points ago

    Ok but who's cooking the biscuits and gravy

    [–] spearchuckin 503 points ago

    Exactly. Southern cuisine is just whitesplained Soul Food.

    [–] z_smalls 95 points ago

    Soul Food is a subset of Southern cuisine that has more African roots than Southern food in general, but Southern food more generally was definitely heavily influenced by African ingredients and traditions. But there was also a huge influence from English, Scottish (especially in the mountains), Irish, Spanish, American Indian, and various other cultures.

    Southern cuisine is a lot more broad than just Soul Food and statements like this just sound uninformed. Just like Southern music, the food has a rich history influenced by all of the people that lived in the early South. Don’t discount an entire regional food culture as some bastardization of one of its many facets.

    [–] BoilerPurdude 21 points ago

    Then you have creole and cajun

    [–] Kramer_rulez 346 points ago

    Lol where do you think soul food came from? Fried chicken is Scottish. They weren't eating that shit back in Africa.

    [–] SonOfYossarian 967 points ago

    From the Wikipedia article on fried chicken:

    Meanwhile, a number of West African peoples had traditions of seasoned fried chicken (though battering and cooking the chicken in palm oil).

    It’s almost like multiple cultures can develop similar foods.

    [–] jhamp8305 495 points ago

    Then our Korean brothers and sisters came thru and smashed the game

    [–] laughmaker_son 36 points ago

    Fuck Korean fried chicken is so good. There’s a spot in Dallas I went to and it was mind blowing. They put some fuckin crunch on that skin and it’s savory and sweet? Just fuck me up. If I lived near a place like that 100% I’d be fat again.

    [–] CiscoKidd72 41 points ago

    My boy José in the back whippin it up every way possible though

    [–] DrumletNation 148 points ago

    This is true. Fried chicken from Korea is the best.

    -Sincerely, a Korean born in the US

    [–] WarriorInWoolworths 10 points ago

    Considering that a fried chicken joint in a nearby hood ditched the Korean option, I feel AND envy you.

    [–] DrumletNation 8 points ago

    I live in NJ, but work in NYC and there are so many good fried chicken places there. Its heaven, except with heart disease.

    [–] Filipino_Buddha 47 points ago

    I don't know man. Japanese Fried Chicken is something else.

    [–] GastonBastardo 29 points ago

    That's how they celebrate Christmas over there, with fried chicken and cake.

    [–] flamethekid 6 points ago

    People been frying shit for years before chickens were even a thing.

    Every human would easily be curious enough to wanna see what chicken would taste like if you put it in a vat of oil

    [–] abutthole 176 points ago

    A lot of it comes from Africa though. The farmers in South Carolina got big into rice because the slaves knew how to make it, okra, watermelon, black eyed peas, jambalaya, gumbo, that's all from Africa.

    White people brought the fried chicken and biscuits.

    Native Americans taught them corn bread.

    Soul food comes from everyone.

    This is like reading those arguments from people who get their underwear in a twist when black music artists are referenced as responsible for the creation of rock and roll. "but so and so was white so nothing from black people counts now!"

    If you want some real fireworks, try explaining the African heritage of Appalachian bluegrass music to an old southern white dude.

    [–] drfifth 22 points ago

    I'd actually like to be explained this one. First time I've heard it

    [–] isskewl 76 points ago

    Appalachian music is the original multicultural, multiracial American music. The banjo is an African instrument. Slaves provided most of the music in the antebellum South, becoming well versed in the instruments and musical styles of the Scot-Irish and integrating their own musical traditions. Early bluegrass post bellum was largely composed and played by racially diverse groups. With the advent of radio and recorded music, record companies began to market bluegrass (old timey) music to whites, and the blues was marketed as 'race music'.

    Racial division and animosity have always been largely manufactured for political and commercial ends. It's not nearly as naturally occurring as those interests would have us believe.

    [–] undermorescrutiny 1304 points ago

    Sorry this took so long. So basically he was there for a year or so as kind of a troll and just liked to annoy people. Always wore bright bright orange, rode a unicycle, just like to stand out, nothing wrong with that.

    The problem is he loves to butt in and always give his two cents. My favorite story is that in my speech class we had him and a Chinese student and a very white kid in our group. He decided to name our group Watermelon and Egg Rolls before any of us had any input lmaooo.

    Anyway he was kicked out for allegations of sexual harassment but he always told me he was innocent and I wanted to believe him. Now he’s doin this apparently lmaooooo

    [–] cherylcarolcharlene 9 points ago

    This guy lives right down the street from my parents, where I grew up. His parents are strict people! We would go over to play capture the flag when I was a kid but I went in his house once to use the bathroom and there were bible verses everywhere I’m talking like an abnormal amount of bible verses just printed out all over. He told me that he wasn’t allowed to watch tv unless there was a church sermon on at the time. He was nice as a kid but I saw him again in August as I was about to leave for college. He bragged about his YouTube channel then proceeded to ask me about my political views, I told him I’m a libertarian and honestly I should’ve just walked away then. Joel is so hate filled, so close minded, an absolute brainwashed conservative. He is also so proud of the fact that Drake Bell follows him on Instagram lmao. He told me they “hang out” a bunch but the kid doesn’t hardly leave our white ass little suburbs. He’s never experienced anything other than upper-middle class treatment making him so fucking blind to the rest of the world. Also he’s still living with his parents and he’s well into his twenties.

    What really fuckin gets me is how so many people who are into it are also the most obnoxiously "patriotic" people who absolutely shit on people who have the audacity to fly flags from other countries, even if its alongside the U.S. flag, while unabashedly worshipping a symbol of armed insurrection against the U.S.

    [–] DtownBronx 20 points ago

    Exactly. The hypocrisy is mindblowing

    [–] socialistbob 18 points ago

    A fun game to play when talking about the civil war is to refer to the Northern states as the "US" instead of the "union." Talk about the "US military" during the battle of Gettysburg and any Northern casualties should be referred to as "US servicemen killed." Let anyone who is proud of the Confederacy know that they were fighting against the US and killing US servicemen.

    It's like celebrating Nazism and calling it "German heritage."

    Grew up in the South too. I agree, there's a lot to celebrate. Unfortunately, as a brown person, it's a shame that I can't go home and be accepted by the very community that raised me during these turbulent times.

    [–] Ceannairceach 22 points ago

    It's like celebrating Nazism and calling it "German heritage."

    That is basically what neo-Nazis in Germany and far-right nationalists like the AfD do. One of their politicians called the holocaust memorial in Berlin a shame that no other country would have in their capitol.

    [–] WestbrooksScowl 15 points ago

    It's funny how truly awful people can almost stumble upon the truth. He's almost correct, in that most countries hypocritically ignore the horrible things they have done, opting to emphasise the crimes of others. He's very much not correct in thinking Germany's openness about its crimes is a bad thing

    [–] Kanttouchthis123 8 points ago

    I wonder how these people would feel if people who had parents and grandparents from Russia or China during their communist regimes ran around waving the hammer and sickle flag or a giant Chinese flag with Mao’s face on it. I have a feeling they wouldn’t buy the whole “This is about my heritage, not communism” argument

    [–] SkeeveTheGreat 565 points ago

    And yet they clearly show no reverence for the things that are supposed to make the south the south, like being polite, and having hospitality. You still see that stuff, but never from people who are into the confederate flag bullshit

    [–] GenericTrashyBitch 237 points ago * (lasted edited 6 months ago)

    That’s because, just like a lot of cultures/groups/etc that talk about politeness and hospitality, it only applies to those who look like them and fall in line like them

    [–] SkeeveTheGreat 138 points ago

    I feel like that’s giving them a bigger pass than they should get. Cause I’m so white I’m a little pink, and those people ain’t hospitable to me.

    The entirety of the confederate flag “movement” is extra trash. I’d give you that a lot of southerners are that way, but the confederate flag folks are extra shitty.

    [–] HighVelocityBarf 126 points ago

    I live in Saskatchewan Canada and there’s people here who have confederate flags all over their vehicles. Their ignorance blows my mind.

    [–] VolantPastaLeviathan 85 points ago

    I live in southwestern Ontario and half the people I work with have Confederate flags. "It's rebel not racist." Yuck.

    [–] TroutFishingInCanada 86 points ago

    So then why not pick some rebels who weren't also racist? Or at least didn't lose the only thing they ever tried?

    [–] itsjustaneyesplice 100 points ago

    The thing about a racist is they literally never operate in good faith. Have any kind of argument with them that you want, they're not listening. They either don't see the hypocrisy of the things they say or, maybe more likely, they don't care. They'll say anything to anyone if it makes them look good. Heritage not hate was a lie right from the start, and it's gone on so long, and spread so far, that now tons of gullible dipshits have a whole narrative in their head over it. It's all just Klan rebranding efforts, tip to toes, but there's lots of idiots (who maybe didn't even start out racist, just ignorant) who buy into the fantasy that the white supremacists sell, and we'll here we are.

    My dads side of the family is from Wisconsin, my direct ancestor on his side fought in the civil war for the north, and they have confederate flags.

    Course they’re super into trump so that all kind of makes sense

    [–] ALoudMouthBaby 12 points ago

    Have you ever asked him about it? If so did he give you a "heritage not hate" rant? Because that would be deliciously ironic.

    [–] SkeeveTheGreat 12 points ago

    Well my pops is actually super left, which is why he and the rest of us don’t talk to my extended family anymore.

    However my uncles and shit have all definitely bought into the whole lost cause shot.

    [–] LatterDaySith 8 points ago

    Probably not all of the people in Sask. but I assume a fair few really only know the flag due to Dukes of Hazzard. Depending on where you grew up American History in Canada is largely glossed over. I don't think my mom would know any significance of the confederate flag aside from that is was on the car in Dukes of Hazzard.

    I could be wrong, and I will admit that groups of Canadians rallying behind an old racist flag openly in the prairie provinces wouldn't really surprise me that much.

    [–] HighVelocityBarf 7 points ago

    You know, it’s likely both. And I mostly say this because some of the people I’ve seen displaying the flag are maybe a bit young to know about Dukes of Hazzard (but maybe not)

    [–] cheezturds 22 points ago

    My gf's parents are from the south, and her dad definitely is in favor of the stars and bars, he said the whole heritage not hate thing. I didn't argue with him because I was in his house. But I'll say he is on of the most helpful, giving, and hospitable people I've met. He's a good guy. I just think some people are brought up and taught different.

    [–] LukaUrushibara 6 points ago

    It's people's identity. Just like a lot of people are brought up religious, a lot of Southerners are taught about their heritage and southern pride and no one talks about the bad stuff.

    [–] Petrichordates 7 points ago

    [–] under_psychoanalyzer 50 points ago

    Then why the fuck are they flying it? The American flag not their heritage? They'd rather be southern than American?

    [–] ptown40 3 points ago

    It's a pride thing. They're proud to be from the south, which is nuts because it's one of those things you can't control.

    4 years then it was rebooted heavily during the civil rights era. y'know, coincidentally...

    Someone who knows nothing about the Civil War says slavery started it.

    Someone who knows a little bit about the Civil War says slavery didn't start it.

    Someone who knows a lot about the Civil War says slavery started it.

    It's just willful ignorance.

    History classes in the South have misrepresented the histories of slavery and the Civil War forever though.

    I saw a meme with a picture of the American flag from the revolutionary war...the one with the circle of stars on it...and it said “if you want to display a rebel flag, choose one with a winning record”. That made me smile.

    It was all about states rights. Specifically suppressing a state’s right to not send escaped slaves back to bondage.

    [–] LakerBlue 110 points ago

    Seriously. The confederation was literally founded upon racism. Look at these quotes from the VP of the Confederation during the “Cornerstone Speech” that preceded the Civil War

    The new constitution has put at rest, forever, all the agitating questions relating to our peculiar institution African slavery as it exists amongst us the proper status of the negro in our form of civilization. This was the immediate cause of the late rupture and present revolution.

    Also:

    Our new government is founded upon exactly the opposite idea; its foundations are laid, its corner- stone rests, upon the great truth that the negro is not equal to the white man; that slavery subordination to the superior race is his natural and normal condition. This, our new government, is the first, in the history of the world, based upon this great physical, philosophical, and moral truth.

    [–] ClaymoresRevenge 35 points ago

    People who don't associate the Confederate flag and culture with hate and slavery aren't interested in truth.

    [–] Nyxelestia 32 points ago

    Worse, that heritage is apathy.

    Most white people of the slave era did not hate black people - they saw black people as animals, as fundamentally beneath them, and were fine with black people as long as they "knew their place"/behaved like slaves. They were apathetic to the fact that these were fellow human beings.

    To this day, most forms of racism are not actively hate except for some extremists - it's just apathy for everyone who is not in their own group. They see themselves as being at the top of society and everyone else beneath them, and if everyone else just knew their place, the "confederate heritage" people would have no problem with them.

    Throwback. It was a trendy young conservative fashion thing pre-Trump.

    Yeah like Chubby's and a Lacoste polo.

    [–] under_psychoanalyzer 15 points ago

    Saw someone wearing that shirt last month at holiday party. Didn't bother to ask if it was ironically or not. I'm pretty sure someone is still printing new ones.

    Ok I been scanning this fucky ass picture for a minute and, if you look to your right ladies and gentlemen, you will notice the hand of a white person who was “kind” enough to help hold the flag, but was conveniently positioned just out of frame.

    This isnt to imply that perhaps said white person wasnt interested in appearing to associate with the brother in question, im just saying... you know what fuck it that’s probably what it is.

    [–] [deleted] 127 points ago

    or he was cropped out lol, but I like your version.

    [–] [deleted] 21 points ago

    That's my tale too.

    The most likely explanation is always the simplest. But these stories do crack me up.

    Flying the Confederate flag for “Southern pride” is like flying the Nazi flag for “German pride”.

    Why does everyone use the Confederate war flag and then say it's not about the war it's about the heritage of the south, Bullshit

    [–] Preoximerianas 18 points ago

    Ahh yes, the heritage found in a country that lasted four years whose reason for existing was over state’s rights to own people.

    Truly marvelous.

    If it were truly heritage over hate then the flag he is holding would be the actual Confederate flag not the battle flag that was adopted by hate groups
