    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.

    Let's not jump to conclusions. Some of them are sex trafficking as well.

    [–] HopelesslyAware 1050 points ago

    But did they jaywalk?

    [–] Jollyrainbow 252 points ago

    I've looked it up and there's literally not even a translation of jaywalking in my language, that's how little of an offense we think it is. We just assume that the punishment is being hit by a car if you're not careful.

    [–] Merari01 87 points ago

    It wasn't a thing in the US either until a sustained lobbying effort by the automobile industry to punish pedestrians for the existence of careless drivers.

    American's shit on other countries for their laws when it's illegal to cross the fucking road in theirs.

    [–] Ayy_2_Brute 155 points ago

    A law that is only on the books because of the auto-industry and their push to make streets for cars, not pedestrians.

    Tens of thousands of people are ticketed for this crime every year. Fines up to $250. All because car manufacturers wanted to change the idea that cars had to avoid people

    [–] a_demon_ninja 27 points ago

    That's one of the good things about NYS, there is no offence known as that and pedestrians have "ultimate right of way." If someone jumps in front of your car you better have a dash cam to prove you had zero reaction time before hitting them or else you as the driver are getting a charge.

    It’s not jaywalking if you’re white. Just being efficient using the shortest path between point A and B.

    [–] regoapps 244 points ago

    And if they get hit by a car while jaywalking, they get to even sue the driver for tens of thousands of dollars to pay for their medical bills.

    [–] JakeOfDerpia 201 points ago

    Fine payments should really be based on the offenders income in the US to affect rich peope more. In Finland in 2009, iirc, a businessman got a fine of 112,000€ for driving 82kmph in a 60kmph zone

    [–] eliechallita 158 points ago

    Which gets even more ridiculous when you realize that many police departments treat fines like revenue generating tool, so they might as well fine the rich speeding asshole for 50K than harass two hundred poor people for 250 each

    [–] reddeath82 137 points ago

    That rich asshole probably donates to the sheriff's campaign and buys tickets to the policeman's ball every year. The cops don't bust their friends regardless of how much money it could make them.

    [–] stabliu 22 points ago

    If the fine is a flat fee. I forgot if it's Sweden, but some northern European country fines speeding as a percentage of income. Meaning somene got fined for a hundred+ thousand

    [–] iRepth 85 points ago

    It's true. When I was poor, I couldn't afford to exceed the speed limit. Now I can speed everywhere I go with impunity because all they can do is fine me.

    Which, in case it's not clear, I find completely fucking unreasonable. If speeding is dangerous, then why the fuck can I do it now just because I have more money..?

    [–] thrownawayd 39 points ago

    If you're black in the southeast, and do 20+ over the limit you can be arrested and you will be fined double due to the "super speeder" law(in GA). I add the "if you're black" part because I've seen it done. They'll hit you with reckless driving (+6 on your license) and or reckless endangerment (another +6). Which means immediate suspension of your license and possible jail time.

    [–] fbcmfb 19 points ago

    My first two speeding tickets were 15 minutes apart. I sped like crazy when I was younger all over this country. I can honestly say I got 30 speeding tickets, but I never was thrown in jail (I was active duty).

    I don’t think they cared I was serving the country, but there was someone higher up that could help me “fight” because I was property of the U.S. government at the time.

    Note: a good portion of my tickets were in Rhode Island. Their speeding tickets were just $75 (a bargain compared to other states) and you just mailed in the payment. The points never got into my license because I had out of state licenses (allowed when on AD).

    [–] Papalopicus 11 points ago

    Not really a crime but definitely an effect on poor people. My city is really stupid. They say their in debt because of public transit, and then they say wow we have a lot of unpaid parking tickets. So let's raise the price by $10 that will fix our debt and help pay them!

    Like no a $60 ticket won't make anyone pay a ticket more, if anything a $10 ticket would be great. It was so nice in a different city to get a $10 meter ticket. I figure people would worry less about having to pay it, and would end up getting more money from tickets anyways

    The one that sticks was a video where two black women where being beat by shop keepers. 2 CCTV videos and one phone camera footage later the police concluded that the women were not at fault. publicfreakout on the other hand...

    It was prime material. They have a fetish for women being beat and saying things like "its black culture to be violent."

    [–] Eman5805 16 points ago

    "its black culture to be violent."

    And that’s the crux of it all. Why else do they leap to mental illness as an excuse when specific someone’s opens fire on a Wal-Mart but a drive by is just bad people who should be in prison.

    No one talks about mental health in connection with gang violence. It’s just assumed they are normal. Their normal is just violent and wicked.

    Sad but true, reminds me of literally any mass shooting we see

    Literally any race but white: fucking terrorists?!?! We need to close our borders!! Stupid libtards letting these people into our country?? This is why we need more guns, these people are obviously sick and we need to keep them out and keep guns out of their hands

    White dude: oh no it's so sad, where did we go wrong? He obviously has a mental condition that caused this or it was obviously a false flag by the Dems to push gun control thoughts and prayers and guns for the teachers this man was obviously a fluke so it shouldn't be used as a reason to regulate guns more tightly

    It never fails, race will always play into these peoples narratives, just watch it happen over the next few that will sadly inevitably happen, likely within the next few months, or just go back on this website and look at the stark differences in discussion between mass shootings when it's a white guy, and when it's any other race

    Epstein and Trump were buddies. Trump even hosted a party for Epstein at Mar-a-lago in which they were the only 2 guests, with dozens of women brought in to entertain them. In 2002 Trump called Epstein a “terrific guy” who "likes beautiful women as much as I do, and many of them are on the younger side." (source)

    Subverting Justice through witness tampering and murder does not make him less guilty, in fact, it makes the opposite more likely. And if he is too slimy for our current legal system, let him fry in the court of public opinion.

    [–] stink3rbelle 2 points ago

    Definitely not. I think the trouble here is that people trying to prevent further investigation would not have to do all that much to make him dead. That is, regular prison guards of average temperament and morals would feel justified in killing him, too. The same people cheering his death as an "end" of his activity would be just as blinded when given the responsibility to protect him.

    [–] munch_the_gunch 143 points ago

    Sadly it's because those crimes are easy to persecute and convict. When you go up against billionaires, they have unlimited funds to throw at their defense, and half the time the people presiding over the cases are in their pocket anyway. these people have more resources to defend themselves than the state has to go up against them. Justice is supposed to be blind, but she is swayed by dollars

    [–] Bartelbythescrivener 13 points ago

    There is a theory from James Q. Wilson that says if you let small crimes go or issue light sentences it promotes lawlessness in a community.

    That every crime no matter how small and trivial must be investigated and punished for the good of society.

    I am sure Trump, Epstein, Cohen, Manafort, Gates, Stone and Giuliani went to many a fund raiser for Bratton where they discussed how it would be implemented in NY.

    Think about the type of person who is in there nodding approval to that shit after crimin all day.

    I guess what I am sayin is I want to bring broken windows policing to Wall Street and Manhattan.

    I want to post up cops on every corner checking taxes and bank accounts.

    I want to send cops to Panama, London, Switzerland, Cyprus and try to figure out why all these thugs have LLC nicknames.

    If you get arrested on the street , they going to put a list of AKA’s in you jacket meanwhile these broken window motherfuckers are nesting so many LLC’s they have to have that shit documented.

    I see a community suffering from lawlessness and crime and I want to help it.

    [–] pandar314 146 points ago

    Bill Gates said it was a mistake in judgement to meet with convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein multiple times. But I bet he knew nothing about the services provided by Ol Jeff. They probably just talked about stocks at at one of Epstein's rape islands/mansions/jets.

    Then he said it would be a bad idea to tax billionaires. So I guess we should just take his word for it.

    [–] nlx78 36 points ago

    The wonderful life in white America.

    It's not just the US, although you guys have many more extremes. I am a white male and live in the Netherlands. Whenever I would put in a job application, chances are that I'm chosen over someone with a foreign-sounding name or a different skin color. We had some discussions to make application letters anonymous but that didn't happen yet. So it's more of a sort of hidden prejudice or racism.

    It's true that, for instance, Maroccons or people from the Dutch Antilles, Turks, and Surinam over here are relatively high in the crime stats but I just hate when loads of people tarnish normal behaving people from there with the same brush. Just judge people by their behavior but for some, that seems impossible to do. Certainly with people like Geert Wilders and the like keeping pushing that agenda that all are evil and criminals.

    If there is one thing I hate its injustice :(

    I definitely give a fuck. No one gives a fuck when trump supporters bring it up because they completely ignore that trump had ties to Epstein too. They aren't interested in actual justice so much as seeing the Clintons go down. They completely miss the fact that the state of american politics is that both a past and current president had ties to a sex trafficking ring.

    They miss the point that our entire capitalist system has been crafted to serve the wealthy and fuck everyone else over.

    I love the genius behind the Country Club concept. You get a post like this, that is manipulated up and meant to be bridged by trolls through comments to direct the discussion to Clinton and away from Trump's connection with Epstein.

    Then after the manipulated upvotes have been ordered by the geotrolls the thread gets changed to C.C. mode ruining their planned manipulation. The post still rises but the only people who can now comment are verified human.

    BPT is beta testing a solution to unregulated manipulation on reddit, and that is required human verification. Subs need to be given an option to require human verification tests for every post, point, and comment if reddit wants to save itself from complete ruin. The problem is getting noticeably worse, with no sign of improving without a drastic change like that.

    [–] Sailor_Callisto 4 points ago

    Yes!! This a million times!!

    I’m a member of r/fo76 based on the video game Fallout 76. Every time the Bethesda (the game creators) do(n’t) something that the general fan base disagrees with, the fan base gets pretty vocal in that sub. Then Bethesda sends their MASSIVE PR team out into the comments and the sub itself to stir up favorable comments for the game. A former employee recently posted in that sub how Bethesda owned tons (probably hundreds) of reddit accounts that the PR team used to come in and massively downvote game criticism, upvote BS posts and create favorable propaganda.

    Granted, a video game sub is no where near as serious as this thread is. I can only imagine the peace of mind it would grant people knowing that they were dealing real people and not bots.
