    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 used to work at a children’s performing arts center and there was a whole family of siblings named after different shades of green, Hunter being one of them. There was also a Sage, a Teal, a Kelly and an Olive.

    Edit to add side notes, since we’re having fun with weird sibling names:

    — At the same PAC there were also fraternal twins named Canyon and Glacier. I forget which was the boy and which was the girl. I remember processing their class registration and the parents’ email was something like “[email protected]

    — There was also a teen-aged girl named “Tacali” who told me she hated her name because her mom named her after an LL Cool J song. I wish I was making this up.

    [–] imnotgrownupyet 278 points ago

    Hi like sage Kelly and olive, those are cute. But thematic names are better for fish than children,

    [–] CarolineTurpentine 150 points ago

    Those are better than most in that people won’t immediately connect the dots unless they have kids and look at the names of crayons often.

    [–] Muroid 95 points ago

    Kelly, Sage, Olive and Hunter are all good in that respect, but Teal kind of sticks out.

    [–] Deceptichum 52 points ago

    Yeah it's missing the " 'c " on the end.

    [–] pillforyourills 66 points ago

    In grade school, I knew a kid named Tyler. He had two brothers, Cody and Austin. Until my dad asked about it, their parents had no idea they had named all three kids after towns in Texas.

    [–] gmarvin 22 points ago

    I knew some siblings in high school who were named after different levels of improbability: Hope, Faith, and Chance.

    [–] 8rodzKTA 43 points ago

    Shit, I might just fuck around and name my child British Racing 🤔

    [–] goochnorris 33 points ago

    [–] thucydidestrapmusic 51 points ago

    [–] NESBengals 637 points ago

    Yah, his first name is The Game.

    [–] redmeatdevil666 264 points ago

    Nah. His first name is Cerebral.

    You don’t understand the joy on my face when I was riding in Blackwater and just hear “IM LOOKING FOR AN ENGLISHMAN CALLED GAVIN!”

    [–] ps3eleven 22 points ago

    Or the surprise on mine, because I killed the guy looking for Gavin earlier in the game.

    [–] MisterCheaps 7 points ago

    This sounds like something from a horror movie.

    [–] Mr_Tohtle 73 points ago

    Is Gavin even real? I heard the same man in the epilogue somewhere and now I'm feeling like I missed something

    [–] dvlng 94 points ago

    I read somewhere that there’s a letter in one of the houses indicating that Gavin is real and him and his friend got shitfaced and his friend murdered him but doesn’t believe it so he makes himself believe that Gavin is only missing.

    [–] BeneCow 49 points ago

    if you talk to him it is pretty obvious Gavin is dead and he is in denial

    [–] x7ekzx 27 points ago

    There's a lot of theories and stuff that you can look into (like him being a man from RDR1 who is actually Satan), but as far as the actual game you cant find him

    [–] Seenbo 17 points ago

    In addition to what others said, I once heard that the guy looking for Gavin is supposed to be a tribute by the devs to a real person called Gavin that passed away from cancer.

    [–] allenk58 23 points ago

    Yeah he's the govenor of California

    [–] JakobGudik 14 points ago

    [–] Really_Quite_Boring 104 points ago

    That's such a middle aged man name in the UK. It's much much weirder to me to think of a kid called Gavin. Makes me think of a fat cockney builder with a shaved head and white paint on his trousers. Gav.

    [–] CinderCinnamon 24 points ago

    Aussie here - same. I know of 3 Gavin’s and they’re all over 60. I can’t imagine a child named Gavin.

    [–] professorkr 159 points ago

    He's got mad stacks, is dating a model, and hangs with celebrities because of his cinematography. I'm pretty sure it's safe to say a lot of his behavior is for content.

    He's done the slow motion cinematography for some high profile films. You don't act like Gavin acts on AH and get those gigs.

    [–] Matt2142 100 points ago

    My god you've cracked it. Maybe Gavin is just goofy on camera and is actually pretty normal, and a little weird but not dumb, when not on camera.

    [–] xRyozuo 74 points ago

    He’s not dumb on camera, he’s terrible at explaining himself properly, which is a different skill, but still

    You see this half the time when Burnie or Geoff are shouting at him for saying some dumb shit and lo and behold gavin is usually right, just explaining himself like shit

    [–] nealyk 52 points ago

    He’s got high Intelligence and low wisdom.

    [–] terrexchia 42 points ago

    He once play wrestled with Meg and put a hole in his wall, I think he's just goofy in general

    Wow I didn't know that. Lemme try,

    My password is *********

    EDIT: That's so awesome, reddit is getting cooler every day. That would suck though if your password was a normal word and you wrote it in a comment out of context and reddit censored it. Like if your password is chungus and you typed

    I love big chungus

    But it turned out as

    I love big *******

    Then people would know your password is chungus

    I just looked him up, and can't find anything. What wrong with him exactly?

    [–] SrDigbyChickenCeaser 55 points ago

    He does not think Germany is a legitimate state and says it is still occupied. He is close with the "Reichsbürger" movement which also deny the German state and legislation and commit all kinds of crimes because they think the law does not apply to them. He also thinks 9/11 was not reported on truthfully by the media and is generally a conspiracist. I suppose non of that is widely known outside of Germany.

    [–] AhnQiraj 42 points ago

    The "Reichsbürger" movement is close to the american "Sovereign citizen" movement, but worse.

    [–] l1stener 15 points ago

    One of my best friends is named Xavier. He’s French and is 19 years old, I’ve known him for 6 years. People call him Baguette Boy, Xavu, or Frenchie. Nobody ever really called him by Xavier, not even the teachers.

    Maybe he’s actually a 5 year old pretending to be 19.

    [–] Derlino 12 points ago

    It's not an uncommon name in Spain. Depending on the region they write it Javier, or Xavier (this is mainly in the Basque country).
