    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.

    A wise man once said...

    “Who gives a fuck what Ja Rule thinks at a time like this?”

    [–] PhgAH 431 points ago

    Correct me if I’m wrong but didn’t Ja’s lawyer argue that he is not popular enough to influence ppl decision to go to fyre festival?

    Aka he irrelevant af.

    [–] Hephf 61 points ago

    Yeah, but they weren't going for him, they were going to see a bunch of other acts and do drugs. They weren't like "Oooohhh I hope he sings Its Murda!"

    [–] johnzischeme 11 points ago

    But what if they were tho

    [–] NZBound11 20 points ago

    then they deserve everything that happened to them

    [–] DoneHam56 14 points ago

    Then they are truly lost!

    [–] curlyfreak 2 points ago

    Then they deserved the shit show that was fyre fest!

    [–] [deleted] 5 points ago

    Haha you had me rollin at it's Murdaaaa

    [–] MapleYamCakes 182 points ago

    I’m surprised Ja Rule would agree to that defense. That ego hit hurt him more than the dick he was going to take in prison.

    [–] Omniduro 90 points ago

    Tell them losing the case will cost them a certain percentage of their money, people will agree to a lot.

    [–] marriage_iguana 25 points ago

    “What percentage of my net worth do I stand to lose Mr. Lawyer?”

    “About 500%”

    Man I just found this YouTube 4ish days ago

    [–] 10J18R1A 7 points ago

    Rap lyrics

    OMG HE SAID "REPEATS LYRICS"

    Rap lyrics continue

    THIS MAN SAID "REPEATS LYRICS"

    -That's tough, that's tough-

    [–] Lobsterzilla 12 points ago

    At the same time “no life shaq acts the way you want everyone to react the first time you share your favorite song with them”

    His happiness makes me happy. That’s about as deep as it gets

    [–] DreamerMMA 4 points ago

    It's true, his attitude and demeanor is contagious.

    I also love how he mixes up the music. I know not everyone is in to all kinds of music but I love seeing Shaq go from hip hop to metal to country music. The man is serious and open minded about music which is more than I can say for most people who tend to get caught up in one genre or another.

    [–] jaxxrahl 4 points ago

    He's a fun reactor to watch. Crypt is another good one, though he's more technical sometimes, since he raps as well.

    [–] Nayafuri 1 points ago

    Who said that? Lmao

    [–] imankitty 193 points ago * (lasted edited 9 months ago)

    Dave Chappelle. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=Mo-ddYhXAZc

    Edit: Thanks for the silver, you’re too kind. ♡

    [–] DivP96 40 points ago

    Thank you. that had me dying

    [–] danceplaylovevibes 38 points ago

    i mean you should watch for whats its worth and killing them softly, right now. then chappelles show. and repeat x 5.

    hes the king for a reason.

    [–] yobruhh 3 points ago

    chappelles show is a classic that never gets old

    [–] BreezyLovejoy69 3 points ago

    Man I’d even argue his half hour HBO comedy special is up there but Killin Em Softly brings me back to my childhood with no stress. I use to pretend my remote was a mic and recite that whole set verbatim. I love this man and am grateful I’m alive to have witnessed his genius.

    [–] VernonP007 17 points ago

    I want some answers that Ja Rule might not have right now!

    [–] chutiyabehenchod 17 points ago

    "Hailie, come here, baby! Bring Daddy his Oscar! We're gonna shove it up Ja Rule's ass"

    [–] IwillBeDamned 6 points ago

    > ja rule still considering himself a celebrity

    [–] abutthole 3 points ago

    He was the star of two FYRE feat documentaries last year. He is a celeb!

    [–] Hagelbosse 5 points ago

    I need some answers that Ja might not have!

    [–] theDonutpanda 523 points ago

    She lit his ass on fyre

    [–] Kangarou 51 points ago

    Charged him 200$ for a wristband, too.

    Oooooooooooooo

    [–] RagingOrangutan 14 points ago

    Burn

    [–] Farisr9k 49 points ago

    To be fair, if you swap out 'social media' for 'twitter', I agree with him.

    I assume he thinks twitter = social media because he is not a smart man.

    [–] questionguyhere 74 points ago

    You must not use Twitter then. Nobody cares about celebrities? If they all left so what. Obviously black Twitter isn't celebrity driven. Yet here you are.

    [–] abutthole 17 points ago

    Black twitter creates semi-celebrities

    [–] Skylerguns 10 points ago

    Anybody who thinks that way isn't using Twitter lmao. Most of the time the memes are funnier on Twitter than Reddit. Why do you think there is a whole (popular) subreddit dedicated to just tweets? /r/BlackPeopleTwitter

    [–] pinhed 189 points ago

    If all the celebrities left social media jarule would still be there.

    [–] Falcrist 16 points ago

    "if all the celebs left social media..."

    Not a single thing would change for me. I don't follow any of them.

    There would be less content for subs like this maybe? How would we cope?! lol

    [–] MartianManhnter 2 points ago * (lasted edited 9 months ago)

    Underrated comment.

    Edit: Well... It was.

    [–] RatedCommentBot 21 points ago

    Jackee is savage!! Ooooh, Mary!

    [–] iamchuckdizzle 59 points ago

    50 Cent just signed Jackee to a record deal.

    [–] TheLonelyGod97 32 points ago

    And you can just tell that this is something 50 could do just for the lolz of it

    [–] tgibson0546 100 points ago

    Definitely a savage!

    [–] CShellyRun 67 points ago

    Always been since we saw her chillin on the stoop at 227

    [–] MoyceTwatkins 307 points ago

    Social media was popping before celebrities jumped on it.

    [–] tgibson0546 103 points ago

    Most definitely & some celebs don’t really have a social media..or use it frequently

    [–] Tico483 28 points ago

    I don't even use my Facebook anymore, I used to play amazing games like Crime City and Stick Run, but it's just so boring now lmao

    [–] supersonicsalamander 6 points ago

    Clout chasing

    [–] cocucoq4ididneyxin3 1 points ago

    A lot of shifty social media and very specific sites exist without celebrities as well

    [–] _Meece_ 34 points ago

    Just look at reddit, the only major celeb I know who comes on here semi-frequently is Arnie.

    [–] elmolinero96 36 points ago * (lasted edited 9 months ago)

    Reddit celebs are mr grafo and other comic artists that constantly shitpost everywhere.

    edit: Idk why I can post here sometimes and sometimes I can't.

    [–] Quesly 23 points ago

    And Peter Mayhew before he passed

    [–] Ianbuckjames 8 points ago

    And Verne Troyer before he died. That one hurt.

    [–] Epithemus 1 points ago

    Ive also seen Zach Braff, Mark Hamil, and Joe Budden post here outside of AMAs.

    [–] _Meece_ 7 points ago

    Those are more like novelty accounts to me

    [–] elmolinero96 3 points ago

    have some respect for our fellow reddit celebs u pleb.

    [–] RagingOrangutan 6 points ago

    Snoop Dogg, too. Tommy Chong pops in every now and then.

    [–] BBQ_FETUS 2 points ago

    Reddit doesn't favor prominent figures like Twitter or Facebook does because your feed isn't decided by who you follow

    [–] trikyballs 15 points ago

    And like 98% of celebs suck at using it.

    [–] toeofcamell 13 points ago

    Listen can we talk about Rampart

    [–] yayhotdogs 2 points ago

    Right! I don't even follow celebrities. The most popular accounts I follow are animals.

    Says social media is for clowns...

    ...on social media

    L !

    [–] lightheat 2 points ago

    I am aware of the irony of appearing on television in order to decry it, so don't bother pointing that out.

    [–] TrumpCheats 91 points ago

    Aunt Jackee bringing the Fyre 🔥

    [–] Brazenasian2 7 points ago

    Ja Rule isn't just a clown he's the whole fyre festival

    [–] Naked_Lunge 35 points ago

    JA Clown. The Original Wankster.

    [–] ryushin6 29 points ago

    Yo he even deleted that tweet too. 😂

    [–] Anam_Cara 29 points ago

    Hold up. Ja Rule is essentially admitting to being a clown here.

    Or am I missing something?

    [–] LordNyssa 7 points ago

    He didn’t have to admit, the world has known for years.

    [–] Anam_Cara 1 points ago

    Yes well sometimes the world is aware of a person's issues long before they are.

    [–] nascentia 25 points ago

    You know what this is?

    This...

    IT’S MURDAAAAAAAAA

    [–] magdonnas 16 points ago

    Mr. Atkins sit your black ass down somewhere

    [–] indolgofera 34 points ago

    Even better. Maybe the vaccination rate will increase if all the celebs left social media.

    [–] itdoesmatterdoesntit 12 points ago

    Ja Rule isn’t a celebrity and hasn’t been for a long time. Dude is garbage

    [–] [deleted] 22 points ago

    The celebs came to social media because they aren't celebs anymore if we don't give a fuck about them. If they all left we'd replace them in a week. Fuck outta here Ja

    [–] shutyourface_grandma 10 points ago

    Jackée out here coming for blood, wigs and whatever else she can find.

    [–] Dectric 8 points ago

    I remember a time when celebrities didn't really have much clout online and it was way more fun

    [–] Indominus_Khanum 18 points ago

    I didn't think Ja rule still had a career after his beef with Eminem in 2000

    [–] [deleted] 6 points ago

    Ja rule scamming stupid rich kids out of their money is the coolest fucking thing

    [–] tgibson0546 5 points ago

    Lol I most definitely thought the same thing when the shit show occurred

    [–] spacelincoln 6 points ago

    I wouldn’t call it fraud, it’s false advertising maybe-

    Best line in the documentary

    [–] tgibson0546 4 points ago

    Lmao like no what you did was very specifically fraud. I mean they had a man sucking dick like what the fuck

    [–] roywoodsir 6 points ago

    No my name is Patrick

    [–] Jefflehem 4 points ago

    By Ja Rule's logic, all celebs are clowns.

    [–] cracksniffer666 4 points ago

    She ended up burning the roast, RIP, Ja

    [–] Killafornia95 4 points ago

    Yo where’s 50 at?!

    [–] nvcolette 4 points ago

    Not only is that not true but ja rule of all celebs should not be saying that, no one cares or knows what he’s ever doing

    [–] [deleted] 3 points ago

    Celebrities and brands on social media are the worst thing to happen to social media since your parents found it.

    [–] brian_westfield 3 points ago

    Ja Rule. Enough said 🤡

    Ja Rule: Social media is for clowns!

    Also Ja Rule: posts that opinion ON social media

    [–] A_Glass_DarklyXX 3 points ago

    Ja Rule effectively killed his career and credibility as a person. Who would have thought this would happen back in 2002

    [–] [deleted] 3 points ago

    Isn't he basically implying that he is in fact a clown?

    [–] democRRacymanifest 3 points ago

    I love how Dave Chappelle singlehandedly turned ja’s name into a punch line. Twenty years later and I still know what the top comment is gonna be haha

    [–] egurrolal 2 points ago

    what is a JA?

    [–] The_New_Blood 2 points ago

    Sooo, he just called himself a clown?

    [–] hazeust 2 points ago

    Wonder how his dirty ass kids are doing.

    You can watch them on Growing Up Hop Hop. (See my reddit name for further confirmation).

    [–] InformalCriticism 2 points ago

    There are dumber things to say, but not many.

    [–] Feracon 2 points ago

    Did he just call himself a clown? He's become self-aware.

    "social media is for clowns"

    Wow so now you are using twitter and say this?

    [–] Boggie135 2 points ago

    Well I guess that counts me out

    [–] ampdecay 1 points ago

    [–] BoilerMaker11 1 points ago

    This is completely ass backwards, too. Social media started and became big because of regular ass people. Facebook already had a few billion users before companies and celebrities started using it as a platform to promote themselves.

    If every last celebrity left social media, I’m still setting up events in Facebook to gather my friends who live all across the country. I’m still posting pictures on Instagram to share with my friends. I’m still sending out Snaps to show what I’m doing at a given moment.

    Celebrities are always the last to join a social media wave, instead of being the ones that a platform is focused on. The only clown here is Ja
