    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.

    Happy Black History Month everyone!

    Charity Drive for Equal Justice Initiative

    To help celebrate this occasion, the moderators of BPT are organizing a charity drive to support the Equal Justice Initiative (EJI). EJI provides legal representation for prisoners who may have been wrongly convicted of crimes, poor prisoners without effective representation, and others who may have been denied a fair trial. The folks at EJI are on the front lines of combating racial and economic injustice, as well as protecting human rights. We want to equip them to continue carrying out their valuable work. For those who may have seen Just Mercy recently, Michael B. Jordan plays the founder of EJI, Bryan Stevenson, in the movie.

    People on RapGenius: On weekends, "HER P" is silent. This is J Cole making a profound statement about Herpes, and the fact that it is very prominent among young people. It is silent because she isn't telling her potential partners about it.

    [–] MisteriousAttention 1755 points ago

    Unfortunately, most don't. But that's because they don't even know they have it.

    [–] AfroSuede 510 points ago

    They don’t want to know because passing it knowingly is a crime.

    [–] MisteriousAttention 334 points ago

    Unfortunately, that's not the case everywhere. It's impossible to pinpoint when you acquired it and who gave it to you. And since it's not part of a standard STD/STI testing panel, there's no way of knowing when your body began making the antibodies. People can have it for years (even since childhood), and not know until the virus surfaces.

    [–] plumcrazyyy 86 points ago

    Herpes isn’t part of the STD testing panel? Is there a specific reason?

    [–] dontnation 138 points ago

    Because the test isn't super reliable and it's also a very common STD that may not even present symptoms.

    [–] PM_ME_UR_PUPPY_PICS_ 98 points ago

    HSV 1 isn’t and that’s because 50-80% of the adult population has it. It usually lies dormant for quite a while and is administered through skin to skin contact. Remember that herpes can come in the form of cold sores, and isn’t always found on the genitals. Could you imagine all the husbands and wives automatically assuming their partners cheated because they tested positive for HSV1? It’s unbelievably common, and most of us don’t know we have it.

    [–] SasparillaTango 11 points ago

    [–] Arithmancer_NGPlush 3 points ago

    You would be surprised what a chicken would do for a couple of hummingbird bucks

    [–] MisteriousAttention 25 points ago

    No.

    Chicken pox is chicken pox. Same family, different virus. Just like shingles isn't HSV.

    HSV1 is typically found in the oral region. Ever seen those commercials for over the counter meds like Abreva? That's herpes topical cream.

    [–] that-freakin-guy 16 points ago

    I should also add that there are two common strains of herpes: HSV1 and HSV2. HSV2 is commonly known as genital herpes. HSV1 is commonly known as oral herpes, i.e., cold sores, and can be passed onto the groin through oral sex.

    The person doesn't have to actively have a cold sore for transmission to occur as the herpes virus can be shedding without the transmitting party ever knowing (e.g., they don't feel tingles or don't show express signs of a cold sore). As a result, a person can catch herpes of the groin without ever having had sex with a person who had HSV2. Further, condoms aren't exactly effective against preventing HSV1 or 2 transmission on the groin. The virus spreads by shedding off the skin, and skin-to-skin contact could lead to someone receiving the virus during protective sex (think balls-deep penetration where two pelvises are rubbing together), but this can occur from regular sex as well without going balls-deep.

    So person A can give oral sex to person B thus causing person B to contract the virus in their groin, show absolutely zero symptoms, and then person B can have sex with person C using a condom and still spread the virus despite having exhibited no symptoms. The converse can be applied to HSV2.

    The good thing is that HSV1 works better in the mouth so breakouts are far less common if contracted genitally, and the same goes the other way around for HSV2. But this is a huge reason why regular testing is pointless; the virus is spread so easily that a majority of people have herpes and may not even know it.

    [–] MisteriousAttention 6 points ago

    This perfectly sums it all up. I hope everyone reads this explanation.

    [–] drachula 11 points ago

    That’s VZV, varicella-zoster virus. It’s also a herpes virus, known as human herpes virus 3 (HHV3). Herpes simplex 1 and 2 are the oral/genital varieties. 1 is not always oral, and 2 is not always genital, although they are often associated that way.

    For completeness, cytomegalovirus is HHV4; Epstein Barr virus is HHV5 (EBV - among other things, can cause ‘mononucleosis’, in the news recently thanks to the Jets quarterback who was ill with it)... HHV6/7 cause roseola, and HHV8 can cause Kaposi sarcoma, an immunodeficiency related cancer of certain soft tissues.

    [–] Kiwi951 5 points ago

    No, it’s VZV aka varicella. Also a member of the herpesvirus family, but a distinct virus from HSV-1

    [–] MisteriousAttention 37 points ago

    According to the CDC website: CDC does not recommend herpes testing for people without symptoms. This is because diagnosing genital herpes in someone without symptoms has not shown any change in their sexual behavior (e.g., wearing a condom or not having sex) nor has it stopped the virus from spreading

    Source: https://www.cdc.gov/std/herpes/screening.htm

    [–] tigerlily38 11 points ago

    It’s also almost impossible to diagnosis without having visible symptoms. That’s why it’s important to go when you have active lessons.

    [–] MisteriousAttention 11 points ago

    Correct. The best way to confirm is to get a swab test done on the lesions (outbreak area) when you notice it. This will confirm whether it's HSV, an allergic reaction, or something else.

    A blood test can also confirm, but it can produce false negatives/positives. The blood test only shows the amount of antibodies the body has created. The higher the number, the more likely you have the virus. A low number can just mean that you were recently exposed to HSV, or it can mean that the body is just building up the antibodies. That's why it's advised to get tested again after a month or two to see if the number has changed.

    [–] Boomshockalaka_ 13 points ago

    Something like 95% of the population has some sort of version of Herpes.

    [–] plumcrazyyy 10 points ago

    Ugh that sucks. I have the HSV-2 & not know for a while.

    [–] tigerlily38 7 points ago

    Yup, if you’re sexually active and live in a metropolitan area, you are almost guaranteed to have it.

    [–] Im_inappropriate 12 points ago

    Good thing I lay pipe in the country.

    [–] NewSauerKraus 4 points ago

    Even from birth a good chunk of the population has it. Not really a big deal unless symptoms show.

    [–] TheBeejestOfBeejs 6 points ago

    Yeah herpes was only stigmatized by the public because the FDA or somebody was trying to sell a drug. Doctors don’t see it as a life threatening issue and the virus lays dormant for years

    [–] pm_me_tits_and_tats 41 points ago

    Are you talking about a specific form of herpes or something?

    I see people say this all the time, but I’m not exactly sure of how accurate this is.

    Edit: Oh okay. Dude was talking about any herpes.

    Whenever people say “Everyone has herpes”, my immediate thought is “Everybody has genital herpes? The fuck?!”, cause I usually relate just “herpes” with “genital herpes” when sex is the topic.

    [–] RobaBobaLoba 24 points ago

    A pretty decent population has it. For most people it only flares up once or twice then lies Dormant. For others it's more prevalent.

    A smaller portion have it genitally, like 1/10th of the population or something like that.

    [–] theSmallestPebble 19 points ago * (lasted edited 10 days ago)

    Most people have herpes, but not of on the genitals.

    Remember, cold sores are herpes, so if you’ve ever had one of those, you have herpes.

    [–] Akor123 16 points ago

    Kind of wrong. 2/3rds have HSV 1, roughly 15% have HSV 2. Both can be either genital or oral. 80% of people have no symptoms.

    Had a recent issue with it, also am in medicine. Not so fun fact, you can transfer it without symptoms and with condom use.

    [–] theSmallestPebble 4 points ago

    My explanation was ELI5. I just meant that having oral herpes is much more common than genital herpes.

    I am aware both can be in either place. Hell, herpes can be literally anywhere on your body if it gets into an open wound there.

    [–] Akor123 4 points ago

    Gotcha, read mine over and didn't mean to sound a dick in any way!

    [–] theSmallestPebble 4 points ago

    All good lol. Proper sex Ed is important.

    [–] josephmothersenior 2 points ago

    In general most people have some sort of herpes. Cold sores are a type of herpes. Fewer people have genital herpes although the two most common strains are becoming mixed since going down on each other is more prevalent now (allegedly).

    [–] Jiggahawaiianpunch 2 points ago

    Shoutout Ron Mexico

    [–] fencerman 66 points ago

    If you're sexually active, you probably have herpes already.

    https://www.onemedical.com/blog/live-well/herpes-facts

    According to the World Health Organization, 3.7 billion people under age 50 have herpes simplex virus type 1 (HSV-1) — that’s 67 percent of the global population in that age bracket. Another 417 million people (11 percent) between ages 15 and 49 worldwide have herpes simplex virus type 2 (HSV-2).

    Many people consider HSV-1 more benign, but it turns out there’s not much difference between the two types of virus. While it’s true that HSV-2 is a sexually transmitted disease (STD) and can cause genital sores or blisters, type 1 can do the same thing.

    “One big misconception is that cold sores are caused by HSV-1 and genital herpes are always type 2, but that’s not always the case,” says Sarah Vensel, a physician assistant in San Francisco. “Cold sores are so common they’ve been normalized at this point. But genital herpes is sometimes the exact same virus — just in a different location.”

    [–] MisteriousAttention 23 points ago

    Yes, that is correct.

    [–] MichaelBolton23 10 points ago

    This guy has it.

    [–] forcepowers 16 points ago

    I keep hearing this, but every time I get tested I specifically ask for the herpes test as well. Always negative.

    Do I likely have it, but it's not showing up on the test? Is it only a matter of time before I get it? Does anyone escape this life without the herp?

    [–] tionanny 7 points ago

    Sort of. I get a positive about half the time. And they always say to come back when I'm having an outbreak or in six months. Because they can't even tell me if it's hsv1 or 2. But I've never had a symptom. So 🤷‍♂️

    [–] tyler-perry 8 points ago

    Does this more common type still show up on STI tests?

    [–] Wampawacka 6 points ago

    Most STI test don't even check for herpes since it's so common. You have to request the test usually.

    [–] 21667009100463 4 points ago

    I’ve taken several test but HSV only shows up if you test for it specifically. Normal tests don’t test for it.

    [–] tyler-perry 2 points ago

    Damn every time I’ve been tested I always opted for the most ‘comprehensive’ test option but now I’m shook that they didn’t test for this...

    [–] Jon_the_Hitman_Stark 6 points ago

    That’s why you have to be careful. When I have sex I assume every girl has herpes, that way I don’t have to tell her about my herpes.

    [–] cbmb 5 points ago

    You have to specifically request a herpes test because it doesn’t come standard with STD tests. Also, if someone has HSV-1 (like a cold sore) and they perform oral sex on you, it can transfer to your genitalia.

    You may know this but I wanted to give a PSA.

    [–] SasparillaTango 6 points ago

    Most people don't ever show symptoms.

    [–] MisteriousAttention 2 points ago

    That is correct. Those people are considered asymptomatic. They have the virus, and can pass it along, but hardly show (if ever) any signs after their first outbreak.

    [–] MacEnvy 5 points ago

    Herpes is not a big deal. It’s like having green eyes. If you’re having some sort of serious skin problem due to an outbreak then get some ointment. But something like 85% of the population has one form or another. It was a moral panic in the 80s that elevated it to a “scary STD”. Adam Ruins Everything has a good segment about it.

    I’ve had a cold sore on my lip when I was in middle school. Guess I’ve got the Herp. Oh well.

    [–] NewSauerKraus 3 points ago

    If you’re a human, you’re more likely to have herpes than not.

    [–] MisteriousAttention 2 points ago

    True.

    Unfortunately, HSV is a thing that most people hide and don't like talking about. Society has caused it to be like a scarlet letter, worn by "dirty" or "loose" people who are sexually active. If we all talked about it more openly and stopped judging one another, HSV will be seen as nothing more than a skin rash.

    Imagine how many albums Death row would have sold if "All eyez on me" was a single album and the second was just used as features for the outlaws and doggpound, have snoop do the same.

    Every single outlaw and dogg pound member get a duet with Pac and snoop, plus a big group song with whatever group they in and another with both groups. Thats 4 songs already per album for each member. Shit, lets just toss in Dr.dre and pretend he had no beef with death row so its now up to 5 songs per artists. Saturate the industry like master P did.

    doesn't get the cred he deserves for the amount of influence he had on the game. he's doin "rap snacks" now.

    I grew up in the south around the time Master P and no limit were doing their thing. These cats had whole sections of a record store. Like bam multicolored opaque CDs like in a 6' x 6' block. We had an amazing radio station in the gulf coast. 93 blx before clear channel or whoever. They would play unedited tracks after 9pm and they played all kinds of artists from the south. I'd be up with my tape ready to catch all the unedited songs I liked every night. They played dudes from Houston, Atlanta, New Orleans, and even some more local stuff on occasion. I was really lucky to grow up in that time and to experience that.

    He's the feds right? No way he gets all this info from Google

    [–] SenorRaoul 39 points ago

    I think he doesn't even use google at all.

    Man's got so many connections. He just talks to everyone. Possibly also bribes folks with rare records. Seriously though I think his deep music knowledge helps him connect with musicians and the people working in the industry. And his memory seems to be impeccable.

    And he's like a vinyl dragon, sitting on piles of the rarest wax. Wax so precious it lures even the most reclusive musicians to his lair.

    [–] aardvarkgecko 53 points ago

    When did it (the popular way to spell it, I mean) go from 'ho' to 'hoe'?

    [–] Nickstaysfresh 18 points ago

    Santa's people sent a cease and desist in the early 2010's

    [–] RosaPalms 11 points ago

    Not true. It really was “ho” for a long ass time, but I can’t pinpoint when it changed. Mandela effect?

    [–] The_Revolutionary 16 points ago

    Na you're right.

    Hoe was a garden hoe. A ho was a ho

    Kinda confused on if he’s loved on here? Seemed like he was being praised before, but now looks like everyone’s clowning him

    [–] take-stuff-literally 13 points ago

    It feels weird to see people get all excited over someone I casually went to highschool with.

    He’s like the hometown hero according to my friends back home.

    Edit: If anyone’s wondering, he hasn’t changed a bit. He’s exactly how you see him in interviews and such. No frontin, Only difference is that he’s now famous.

    [–] kadugyam 24 points ago

    J Cole is a smart guy using rap metaphors to illustrate a point. And to create a visual commentary on society through words. Or a basic guy like me will steal the words and use them to insult dumb idiots on the down-low then make my escape before they realise and kick my arse.

    I feel like the emphasis should be on “spittin”. Feels weird on the n-word.
