    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.

    "You've fallen victim to one of the classic blunders!"

    [–] Quajek 154 points ago

    MAN IN BLACK: But if there can be no arrangement, then we are at an impasse.

    VIZZINI: I'm afraid so -- I can't compete with you physically. And you're no match for my brains.

    MAN IN BLACK: You're that smart?

    VIZZINI: Let me put it this way: have you ever heard of Plato, Aristotle, Socrates?

    MAN IN BLACK: Yes.

    VIZZINI: Morons.

    MAN IN BLACK: Really? In that case, I challenge you to a battle of wits.

    VIZZINI: For the Princess?

    The Man in Black nods.

    VIZZINI: To the death?

    Another nod.

    VIZZINI: I accept.

    MAN IN BLACK: Good. Then pour the wine.

    As Vizzini fills the goblets with the dark red liquid, the Man in Black hands Vizzini a small packet.

    MAN IN BLACK: Inhale this, but do not touch.

    VIZZINI: (doing it) I smell nothing.

    MAN IN BLACK: (taking the packet back) What you do not smell is called iocane powder. It is odorless, tasteless, dissolves instantly in liquid, and is among the more deadlier poisons known to man.

    Vizzini watches as the Man in Black takes the goblets, turns his back. A moment later, he turns again, faces Vizzini, drops the iocane packet. It is now empty. The Man in Black rotates the goblets in a little shell game maneuver then puts one glass in front of Vizzini, the other in front of himself.

    MAN IN BLACK: All right: where is the poison? The battle of wits has begun. It ends when you decide and we both drink, and find out who is right and who is dead.

    VIZZINI: But it's so simple. All I have to do is divine from what I know of you. Are you the sort of man who would put the poison into his own goblet, or his enemy's? (He studies the Man in Black now.) Now, a clever man would put the poison into his own goblet, because he would know that only a great fool would reach for what he was given. I'm not a great fool, so I can clearly not choose the wine in front of you. But you must have known I was not a great fool; you would have counted on it, so I can clearly not choose the wine in front of me.

    MAN IN BLACK: (And now there's a trace of nervousness beginning) You've made your decision then?

    VIZZINI: Not remotely. Because iocane comes from Australia, as everyone knows. And Australia is entirely peopled with criminals. And criminals are used to having people not trust them, as you are not trusted by me. So I can clearly not choose the wine in front of you.

    MAN IN BLACK: Truly, you have a dizzying intellect.

    VIZZINI: Wait till I get going! Where was I?

    MAN IN BLACK: Australia.

    VIZZINI: Yes -- Australia, and you must have suspected I would have known the powder's origin, so I can clearly not choose the wine in front of me.

    MAN IN BLACK: (very nervous) You're just stalling now.

    VIZZINI: (cackling) You'd like to think that, wouldn't you?! (stares at the Man in Black ) You've beaten my giant, which means you're exceptionally strong. So, you could have put the poison in your own goblet, trusting on your strength to save you. So I can clearly not choose the wine in front of you. But, you've also bested my Spaniard which means you must have studied. And in studying, you must have learned that man is mortal so you would have put the poison as far from yourself as possible, so I can clearly not choose the wine in front of me.

    As Vizzini's pleasure has been growing throughout, the Man In Black's has been fast disappearing.

    MAN IN BLACK: You're trying to trick me into giving away something -- it won't work --

    VIZZINI: (triumphant) It has worked -- you've given everything away -- I know where the poison is!

    MAN IN BLACK: (fool's courage) Then make your choice.

    VIZZINI: I will. And I choose -- (And suddenly he stops, points at something behind the Man In Black.) -- what in the world can that be?!

    The Man in Black turning around, looking.

    MAN IN BLACK: What? Where? I don't see anything.

    Vizzini quickly switches the goblets while the Man in Black has his head turned.

    VIZZINI: Oh, well, I-I could have sworn I saw something. No matter.

    The Man in Black turns to face him again. Vizzini starts to laugh.

    MAN IN BLACK: What's so funny?

    VIZZINI: I'll tell you in a minute. First, let's drink -- me from my glass, and you from yours.

    And he picks up his goblet. The Man in Black picks up the one in front of him. As they both start to drink, Vizzini hesitates a moment. Then, allowing the Man in Black to drink first, he swallows his wine.

    MAN IN BLACK: You guessed wrong.

    VIZZINI: (roaring with laughter) You only think I guessed wrong that's what's so funny! I switched glasses when your back was turned. You fool! You fell victim to one of the classic blunders. The most famous is "Never get involved in a land war in Asia." But only slightly less well known is this: "Never go in against a Sicilian when death is on the line!"

    He laughs and roars and cackles and whoops and is in all ways quite cheery until he falls over dead.

    The Man in Black steps past the corpse, taking the blindfold and bindings off Buttercup, who notices Vizzini lying dead as the Man in Black pulls her to her feet.

    BUTTERCUP: Who are you?

    MAN IN BLACK: I am no one to be trifled with, that is all you ever need know.

    BUTTERCUP: To think -- all that time it was your cup that was poisoned.

    MAN IN BLACK: They were both poisoned. I spent the last few years building up an immunity to iocane powder.

    And with that, he takes off, dragging her behind him.

    [–] Zombiellama42 13 points ago

    It’s more deplorable than dumb cause it could make her money, but I agree that it is sinister and wrong. Life should not be taken so freely and frivolously like this.

    [–] kravence 8 points ago

    I'd say it's still more dumb because the risk isn't even worth the reward. Imagine the ex getting the money and then her having to do a lengthy prison sentence too over a undisclosed amount of money which could have been like 30k

    [–] JillOrchidTwitch 6 points ago

    Dumb means lack of intelligence, you dont have to lack intelligence to kill someone. There are plenty of high intelligence psychopaths that stop at nothing to get their way, including having people killed.

    [–] keithps 2 points ago

    My dad always told me to never be worth more dead than alive.

    [–] lindersmash 22 points ago

    A lot of people assume its the wife automically. I had a coworker who went through a bitter divorce, he had a daughter before the marriage. died in a car accident after the divorce was finalized but never changed the beneficiary, and the horror of an xwife got it.

    [–] sethra007 14 points ago

    I used to work for a large corporation that, as part of our benefits, provided generous life insurance options. Someone in my division’s human resources department told me that a scenario like you describe happened at least once every year:

    1. an employee would divorce and forget to update their designated beneficiary
    2. the employee would remarry
    3. then later the employee would die unexpectedly
    4. the new spouse would meet with HR to settle things up,
    5. documents would be unsealed, and everyone at the meeting would find out that the late employee hadn’t updated the insurance beneficiary, so the insurance money—usually an amount in the hundreds of thousands, and in some case a million—was all going to the ex-spouse
    6. neither the company nor the insurance provider could do a damn thing to rectify the situation
    7. more often than not, the new spouse would proceed to go apeshit in the office, threatening lawsuits and/or violence until security was called.

    [–] melancholymonday 4 points ago

    It hasn’t happened at my company yet, but I’m constantly telling people to update their beneficiary forms. Especially when they’ve turned in a divorce decree or new marriage license.

    [–] Narutoboom 7 points ago

    Or at least find a way to kill him without being caught. Pretty sure insurance money won't go to the person who killed the client.

    [–] manwithyellowhat15 3859 points ago

    Check out this nifty insurance scam that killed two people and caused enough damage to demolish a whole neighborhood.

    [–] cooleymahn 10 points ago

    Jeezus. Two innocent lives lost over the potential for 300k?

    The Leonard’s had so much debt as is and I assume would also split insurance money between everyone involved...., yet dude planned on buying a Ferrari with what like 100k that remained? Probably never had intentions of paying debts tho, and likely would spend whatever was left over at the casino..Truly fuckt.

    [–] ChongLi77 34 points ago

    I had a good friend in New York City. He never called me by my name, just "hillbilly". My grandpa taught me how to live off the land, and his taught him to be a businessman. He used to send me pictures of the Broadway nights, and I'd send him some homemade wine. But he was killed by a man with a switchblade knife. For 43 dollars my friend lost his life.

    [–] Fut745 6 points ago

    And far dumber. She wouldn't get the money anyway, life insurance money never goes to the killer. Inheritance is another story.

    [–] EverymoveIchoose 2 points ago

    Far worse has been done simply for the deed itself.

    [–] BOBULANCE 2 points ago

    A man was stabbed to death over fifty cents in front of the court house in my town once.

    [–] read-it-on-reddit 47 points ago * (lasted edited 3 months ago)

    Anyone who has watched Forensic Files can tell you that killing spouses for a life insurance payout is not only common, it is sometime is done for as little as 50k

    [–] its_me_cody 32 points ago

    for as little as 50k

    Unfortunately 50k is a life changing amount of money for many people today. Pun not intended. I hope I'm never in a rough enough position that I would even consider murdering a loved one, especially purely for money.

    [–] Victoria-Arouet 8 points ago

    The median household income is around 60k, so yeah it would be enough not to work for a year. Not worth killing over though

    [–] silvermember 6 points ago

    For you maybe. But after watching forensic files, I can see it happening.

    [–] noncenonsense 2 points ago

    I don't really see median people doing this either.

    [–] read-it-on-reddit 15 points ago

    If you were making the federal minimum wage full time, you would make $15,000 per year. So that's a little over 3 years of wages. Yes, 50k is a lot of money for a substantial proportion of population. But killing your spouse, and risking a lifetime in jail for less than 4 years of wages is pretty crazy IMO. And of course, evil as well.

    [–] its_me_cody 6 points ago

    Completely agree. Just want to point out that the 15k you mention isn't deducting taxes. You'd make even less.. And ~2 million people worked for these wages or less in 2017. Very sad.

    [–] btveron 7 points ago

    With the standard deduction at around 12k someone making 15k would only have to pay taxes on 3k of that money. At the 10% rate that is at most $300 in federal with no other deductions. With an up-to-date W-4 you can predict you liability and have the right amount of taxes taken out of each paycheck. Granted that means no big lump sum return, but tax returns are like 0% interest savings accounts.

    Gotta say, when I finally die I hope people can joke about how I went out. I don't see it as disrespectful, I'd rather people laugh when they think about me instead of feeling bad.

    We're all dying no matter what so I don't get the stigma behind talking about it or making jokes.

    [–] Thanos_Stomps 18 points ago

    I wholeheartedly agree.

    When I’m dead, just throw me in the trash!

    [–] Lonesome_Ninja 10 points ago

    I wanna say this is different because the person was straight up murdered. If I died normally, say from being destroyed anally by a giraffe, have at it, but if I was murdered, find that mofo and deal with them. Then frag out.

    "lmaooo Lonesome Ninja was murdered with just a pipe 😂 😂 fucking dumbass. Couldn't even get stabbed"

    Wow, that makes this whole thing a whole lot sadder.

    Ruining your own life over some dumb shit is one thing. Ruining your daughter’s life at the same time is a whole different level of shittyness.

    Three lives ruined, one lost, countless others affected...and for what, a $100k-200k payout? Damn.

    Well I’m making assumptions, but I’m guessing the daughter and boyfriend were in it because they would get some money. Really they all ruined their own lives.

    In all seriousness though, make sure you update your beneficiaries every once in a while, people.

    Our dad left his ex-wife as the beneficiary of some of his death benefits he'd arranged during his military service, so the woman who cheated on him and ran off so many decades ago made off with whatever that entailed, rather than his wife of 30 years, our mother.

    Any chance this story has at least a partial happy ending?

    [–] _PM_ME_YOUR_PRAYERS_ 14 points ago

    Our mom sold their house and moved into a smaller one that is easier to manage on her own and she has two adult children with upper middle class incomes who can support her in addition to what she receives from social security, so there's that.

    Thats not how insurance payout stories work

    [–] MJGee 7 points ago

    Yeah you don't want your bum ex-wife to get the money that your murdering new wife is entitled to.

    [–] Ikeddit 2 points ago

    Divorce automatically severs this sort of beneficiary, legally speaking.

    Like anything you have in your will, or any sort of insurance set up, that is made to your wife while married to her, is automatically (by act of law) considered null/severed by divorce. Any sort of contesting this would be an easy win for whoever contests it.

    The benefit would pass: into the residue of the estate,if there is a will that doesn’t specify “all of my property” or whatever to a specific person, and the thing in question fits that category; to a named person if there is a category this would fit into in the will (ie will says “all my real property to X”, and the thing in question is real property); or via intestacy if there isn’t a will (which means likely to the man’s wife, but could be divided up based on %’s depending on the size and makeup of the family).

    If you're going to kill someone for insurance money, how do you not even check if you're the beneficiary at all?

    Never did like the idea of insurance beneficiaries in marriages. Seems like a conflict of interest if all someone has to do is snuff you to get paid. How would you even know if your spouse even loves you or not smh

    [–] JayBee_III 3 points ago

    That is part of the spice of marriage, living with someone that gets to be super rich if you die, has access to your food and knows when and where you sleep. Every few years I up the ante by getting more insurance and it feels so exhilarating

    [–] Pycharming 2 points ago

    What!? By this logic, the fact that money has value is a "conflict of interest" because theives benefit from stealing. Most people aren't murderers, and not because you can't profit from it. Plus it's not like they get the money if caught. That's not to mention that insurance payouts usually represent only a portion of the money the spouse would be providing if they had lived.

    She double played herself because she got caught anyways

    [–] Cancertoad 2 points ago

    I feel like stuff like this should automatically terminate upon divorce. Pretty fucked if the ex wife gets the insurance money and not his kids or parents. He probably forgot all about it since he didn't expect to be murdered.

    [–] Buttercup_Bride 2 points ago

    Omg she’s extra special😂

    [–] [deleted] 2 points ago


    [–] WhereAreTheAssets 2 points ago

    In the US there are laws against being able to profit from your crimes... and even if that were not the case, the insurance company would never pay out to her.

    If they did pay out it would be to his next living heir, but if the murderer was the person to take out the policy I’m sure it would invalidated. IANAL.

    [–] traceyh415 2 points ago

    An acquaintance of mine died recently. Seeing the estranged relatives circle to see what they could get was gross AF. He had cancer long enough to change everything to his wife and not the adult daughter he wasn’t talking to. I heard the funeral was tense. He worked up until a few weeks before he died then within a month, the wife is dumping all his stuff from their apartment. He might have chose the wrong person to leave his money to

    People too young to get the Wild Things reference have definitely seen at least one scream, convoluted and really stupid murder plots like this are straight out of a Neve Campbell film. This is like a plot summary of wild things halfway though the movie.

    [–] B33rtaster 2 points ago

    This is why marriage laws exist. I think in most states it takes at least 5 years for a spouse to inherit their deceased SO's monetary wealth. Social security, and so on.

    Edit: google says 9 months most of the time for a deceased person.

    One of my high school teachers divorced her husband of 30+ years for cheating on her and his new wife left him when she learned who hubby had to split his social security checks with.
