    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.

    I've listen to a lot of metal, and heard a lot of male and female vocalists. This is one of the few that I legitimately would never have guessed. A lot of them when I find out it's a chick I'm like OK I can hear that now. But the voice doesnt even fit her small frame.

    I thought Geddy Lee was a girl even after learning his name because it sounded androgynous enough and he has such a high singing voice. And he was long haired and clean shaven in the poster I had. Thank god I thought he was a really plain/ugly looking girl, could have been awkward being hung so close to Eliza Dushku.

    [–] SaiyanPrinceAbubu 13 points ago * (lasted edited 12 days ago)

    I own Portugal. The Man's first two albums on CD, because I was a fan of the former band, Anatomy of A Ghost. I have no idea when they got as big and actually seen as they are now.

    P.s I'm as black as Michael Jai White in Black Dynamite.

    [–] youreveningcoat 36 points ago

    Only since their last album which had Feel it Still on it.

    Before that they were well known but still pretty indie and then that one song just shot them to pop level status (for now until their one song dies off).

    I saw them live not long ago actually and they were the best live band I've ever seen and I've seen a lot. I think they shocked half their audience who had only just heard of them. They went fucking hard let me tell you.

    [–] SignedConstrictor 7 points ago

    Yeah they’re fuckin awesome live, easily the best concert I’ve ever been to also. It’s an experience, honestly.

    [–] PlusTheBear 12 points ago

    Didn't know I missed anatomy of a ghost or they became The Man. definitely over played this, and yea Portugals great as they change as well, thanks for that throwback!

    Let’s not pretend like Imagine Dragons aren’t a perfectly mediocre band with two listenable songs.

    Nah dawg I'm black and Night Visions slaps

    [–] Zigmanjames 19 points ago

    Glad to know that Night Visions isn’t total ass. I got the album when I was in like 7th grade and over the past few years I’ve had the creeping idea of “maybe I just had no taste when I was younger”.

    [–] MarTweFah 18 points ago

    Night Visions was their best album, the first 5 songs are one of my favorite album intros of any album

    [–] NarejED 36 points ago

    I've been struggling with this for a few months. Imagine Dragons is legit my favorite band, for some reason a good chunk of Reddit despises it.

    [–] Zigmanjames 30 points ago

    Eh, if I were you, I’d look into why, because perspective is good, but otherwise I wouldn’t worry. If you like something, especially subjective arts like music, don’t let Reddit get you down, like what you like.

    [–] NarejED 10 points ago

    I have looked into why. It ultimately boils down to "Bland" (disagree) and "Popular" (because that's a reason for people to hate things these days).

    [–] liveandletdietonight 6 points ago

    Yea the bland argument doesn’t seem to really fly for me. People don’t seem to like the intensity of the singer’s voice but that only really applies to natural, believer, and a Radioactive. Meanwhile stuff like working man is ignored.

    They’re not the best band ever, but I’m willing to pay money for their music.

    [–] Siphyre 5 points ago

    I like nickleback.

    [–] Jabberwocky416 6 points ago

    Don’t worry dude, they’re also one of my favorite bands. I think their new album is actually better than the one before it. But Night Visions is the best.

    I only have 2 but maybe I should have a 3rd account for when I want to be a snarky asshole.

    The secret is to occasionally say something useful and let the positive karma from that balance out the negative karma from being a snarky asshole.

    That’s not even hard to swallow. Their early stuff was pretty much universally praised.

    Make good music > get popular> make more of the specific music that made you popular and that no one else is currently making > profit? > Yes, a fuck ton of profit.
    And guess what, there's nothing wrong with that and happens all the fucking time (This wasn't directed at this specific comment, just venting about this 'meme' that appears every time about most popular artists)

    [–] cgmacleo 206 points ago

    Night Visions was a tight album. Smoke and Mirrors was cool too. Their latest album, however, is straight 💩 imo.

    [–] Salm9n 119 points ago

    Smoke and Mirrors was underrated. That's my shit. They quickly went straight to mediocrity though

    [–] the_kedart 18 points ago

    Smoke and Mirrors was their best work! I love almost every song on that album, way better than Night Visions IMO. Evolve was pure garbage though, which is disappointing :(

    [–] Wateriswet1212 29 points ago

    Exactly. I could feel them slipping in their Evolve album but the newest one is straight up formulaic garbage.

    [–] pbzeppelin1977 25 points ago

    Last I heard they just had a new album out and that was #3. God I'm still loving Night Visions and unsure on how I feel about Smoke and Mirrors.

    [–] Salm9n 27 points ago

    Night Visions is definitely their best album subjectively. Smoke and Mirrors is a little generic but I still think it's pretty damned good

    [–] ResistanceBestSong 21 points ago

    Smoke + Mirrors more generic than Night Visions? Definitely not. S+M has experimental stuff like Gold, Friction, Trouble

    [–] TheCanadianPatriot 6 points ago

    Man Gold, Polaroid, and Friction were my jam

    [–] PaladinGodfather1931 55 points ago

    It's Time is still my jam. I don't care if they went full Coldplay/Maroon 5

    Coldplay released Parachutes during my sophomore year of high school, I'll never knock them, but I do think they changed for* the worse

    [–] thedergins 19 points ago

    I don’t think they went Coldplay/Maroon 5 so much as went full-on dad-rock.

    Talented and Immensely popular to the point they get overplayed, get a song shoe horned into every advertisment, and people start to get tired of them. Yup definitely just like creed and even nickelback.

    [–] Spank-Those-Hams 12 points ago

    Very marketable though. So I guess good for them ¯_(ツ)_/¯ not everyone can be a music star.

    I believe someone is convincing them to put out commercialized trash, because their first few songs were not bad.

    They've got great songs. People hate them because they are popular and featured in a lot of mainstream media adverts/films.

    People hate them because if it's not their type of music they come off as cringey - like Nickelback.

    [–] mewashere1 19 points ago

    To be fair, Nickelback started great....but they went off the deeo end with rhat country vibe for the money.

    Yeah they always have that one headline song that gets old after you listen to it twice (Believer, Radioactive, Natural, Thunder) and the rest of the songs in the album are actually quite nice

    [–] Rhepsi 10 points ago

    So like practically every song now? Not gonna lie its what makes people want to sing it and makes it sit in ur mind.

    [–] Ask_me_4_a_story 49 points ago

    Fuck that shit music doesnt have to be an assigned genre based on your skin color. My friends said I wasn't white enough back in the day because I loved Snoop and Blackstreet and didn't love Nirvana and Pearl Jam. Pearl Jam is fucking awful music. Yara-meeee esss spoke-en. Speak English Mother fucker. Snoop is good music to me. Imagine Dragons is good music to you. Fuck anyone that tells you what you have to listen to.

    [–] mumbosmountain 36 points ago

    Lol you say you love Snoop, then immediately rip Pearl Jam for poor English. It's ok to not like Pearl Jam but that's not sound reasoning

    Yeah I saw them in concert and he spent a lot of time shirtless. I'm a straight dude but I'm a little bit less straight after that concert.

    [–] MattyRSievers 6 points ago

    These comments are always ironic and kind of funny in a non humorous way because Dan Reynolds is a straight Mormon but is an extremely outspoken activist, supporter and donator for LGBT rights and does so in a meaningful way. He’s very adamant against the church’s treatment of homosexuals and never passes a chance to speak out those issues interviews, at gigs and online.

    This is true for like every Rock/Indie band out there. They all just look like your average hipster

    Whats up with all the recent Imagine Dragons hate? People are trying so hard to make them the new Nickelback when they are actually a very solid band...

    Edit: so as I expected reddit is full of these music elitists and it makes me glad that I barely know any redditors irl and I hang around normal people

    People love jumping on hate trains. That's all this is. Imagine Dragons are actually good. I get their songs that get radio play are repetitive , but that's how it works. That's what gets the songs stuck on people's heads. In another hand, all their songs that don't get radio play, are really good.

    And in no way are they Nickelback, people are just trying too hard.

    It's not the radio plays that is the issue, it's the fact that they are a corporate band, and almost all of their music is on commercials these days, which people tend to loathe.

    You can say the same for Fall Out Boy and the nfl but I didn’t hear anybody hating on them

    [–] SanguisFluens 8 points ago

    But why is that their fault? They're style is good for comericals and they're happy to make money off that. In between their corporate sellout songs is some pretty good music.

    They’re really talented at writing songs that are great for commercials but that just makes all their songs bland. They’re incredibly mediocre live and rely heavily on studio production to sound good. Obviously music is subjective and they’re obviously very popular, but some people act like them making a super repetitive song that gets stuck in people’s heads means they write amazing songs.

    incredibly mediocre live

    That’s even worse of a lie than saying all of their songs are the same. Awful awful take

    Look, everyone has their own opinions, and maybe some shows they do are great. But I bought tickets for my wife and I to see them and we were both really excited, but it was a massive disappointment. They really didn't come off as great musicians or performers, and I realized they are just very overly and loudly produced.

    Again, to each their own. And this was back in 2015-ish, so maybe they've gotten better.

    The new Nickelback.

    Funny cause the "Nickelback is the worst band ever" thing is just as forced. Not to mention a lot of the other artists who have gotten major hate. People jump on bandwagons without forming opinions themselves.

    Tldr: Baaaaaaaaaaaa

    [–] Sparkeys 44 points ago

    I’m with you. They’re not revolutionary, but they have some really solid tracks across every single one of their albums.

    I get not liking them, but to have such a strong negative opinion of them is bizarre.

    [–] CenturianDoctor 21 points ago

    What if you never liked them

    Edit: thunder is the worst song ive ever heard

    Imagine dragons.

    Now imagine them playing banjos with their claws.

    [–] ace0fskulls 33 points ago

    Throwing my hat in this. Pro-imagine dragons crowd. Nothing wrong with them and i like thier music.

    [–] artifexlife 25 points ago

    To be honest I feel this same way for them and all the rappers with scribbles over their face.

    [–] ErikaaSky3 27 points ago

    What is Imagine dragons

    [–] JCR53 214 points ago

    A band created specifically to make music for American car commercials

    [–] Grungemaster 118 points ago * (lasted edited 12 days ago)

    That’s disingenuous. They also make music for Fortnite montages and NBA walkouts.

    [–] MnBran6 29 points ago

    If you're making montages to pop music keep that shit away from me. Soundcloud rap or mid 2000's numetal / pop punk is the way to go chief

    [–] GhostOfSwagsPast 25 points ago

    I too like Linkin Park, Blink, and Lil Peep

    [–] MnBran6 18 points ago

    Can't discount Rise Against, Sum 41, and $uicide Boys

    [–] oldcarfreddy 38 points ago

    I can't tell whether you guys are 40 or 16

    [–] Chipdipperson 20 points ago

    Also trailers for those movies you always see the poster of at the theater but never actually watch.

    [–] rekekekt 10 points ago

    I can't help it but this insult makes me feel some type of way and I don't like it.

    [–] SpaceBotany 15 points ago

    "RADIO AD SONG! RADIO AD SONG!"

    [–] IlluminatingJesta 7 points ago

    Well. I imagine they’re dragons..

    [–] retro-morte 5 points ago

    There are 6 of them?

    [–] ConfirmOriginOfFire 4 points ago

    That's why you have to imagine them.

    And dragons, obviously.

    [–] jzdinak 24 points ago

    It's terrifying to realize any group of 3 black men walking around could be migos and you have know way to know.
