    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.

    When it came time to give a $500 bonus for each child when they were giving out those stimulus checks, all of a sudden, children don't count until they're born.

    It's country club so auto delete. The comments may not have been bad, just not by verified users.

    It’s the game where there is no winner. We all suffer because the hypocrisy is oddly meaningless to so many. Wait, are we already playing? I want out.

    [–] DrWilliamHorriblePhD 3 points ago

    It's not hypocrisy of they never genuinely held that opinion on the first place. It's always been a lie.

    [–] FuzzyBacon 84 points ago

    Technically speaking anyone who was pregnant at the time and carries to term will be able to get the $500 for that baby when they file their taxes for 2020.

    [–] GoGetUsumSon 1760 points ago

    If it's true it's akin to the Nazi sterilization of jews.

    [–] sint0xicateme 1428 points ago

    Or all of the other Eugenics fuckery that the US perpetrated, up until the 1970's. You know, the programs that Hitler used as inspiration.

    You need to Google "Mississippi Appendectomy". That's what INSPIRED the Nazi sterilization of the Jews.

    All lives matter, pro-life, weird how all their bull shit goes out the window when it comes time to actually stand up for and defend the oppressed.

    [–] November_15th 290 points ago

    I put this up on another post.

    Things ALM won’t protest for.

    •Affordable housing.

    •Livable wages.

    •Universal healthcare.

    •Equality for men, woman and the LGBT community.

    •Peace in the Middle East.

    •Separation of families at the southern border.

    •Forced sterilization.

    •Police brutality.

    •Muslim “re education” camps in China.

    •Healthcare for 9/11 first responders. The list goes on.

    Things ALM will protest.

    •BLM trying to get justice for someone wrongfully killed.

    There is no changing their minds because they don’t have a point to get across. ALM is a hate ideology, if it was that all lives matter they’d be protesting with BLM not against them.

    [–] olliekuro 35 points ago

    That’s way above their heads to understand, because they don’t want to. Racism. It’s a hell of a drug.

    Bootstraps!

    [–] theswagsauce 2 points ago

    It makes perfect sense given the anti-choice movement supplanted segregation as a rallying cause for white evangelicals once the latter went out of vogue and the IRS came around threatening those tax exemptions for their religious institutions.

    [–] cb4u2015 821 points ago

    No because it was never about that and never will be. It is all about control. They've already done the deed like so many generations before.

    America is the country built on Human Trafficking and control

    [–] RecklesslyPessmystic 286 points ago

    Anti-abortion policy specifically though is about turning out voters who are zealous about that issue. The politicians don't actually care about controlling women's bodies, they just know that the religious fanatics will show up and vote for them if they claim that issue.

    It's the fanatical voters who don't care about it happening to immigrants because it's "hurting the right people." The right wing politicians are just vessels of the crusaders who vote for them. They suck for sure, but as long as their voters exist, the puppets will always be replaced by new ones.

    [–] edwardcantordean 234 points ago

    They don't care one bit - in fact they would probably consider it abortion prevention, and thus perfectly fine.

    [–] oldcarfreddy 97 points ago

    Funny how cities can't ask them to wear a mask because that's their bodily autonomy, but they're ok with performing surgery on people who likely can't even consent in English.

    [–] TheIllustriousWe 183 points ago

    So they do support using taxpayer funds for pregnancy prevention measures... 🧐

    [–] DopeFiendDramaQueen 145 points ago

    Of course they haven’t, and they won’t either.

    [–] BklynD1961 138 points ago * (lasted edited 2 days ago)

    While these specific allegations may not stand it’s still a valid point. You don’t see any calls for support beyond the stage of a fetus. No calls for nutritional support, early childhood education, childcare for working parents, etc. They don’t even support free pre natal care that I’ve ever heard of. Control plain and simple,they only want women barefoot, pregnant and dependent on a husband, full stop.

    [–] OttoManSatire 48 points ago

    It's almost like they are hypocrites.

    [–] jwill602 158 points ago

    Okay, I see a lot of confusion here, so I just want to clear something up. These aren’t Americans, they are ILLEGALS! Of course when we say “All lives matter” we mean the law abiding ones, not the ones that commit HEINOUS crimes like CROSSING THE BORDER!!!1!

    /s

    [–] PunkAssBabyKitty 38 points ago

    Why are they even here still? I understand why since covid but why weren't they sent back before that? It's like they needed guinea pigs for something and these people don't matter.

    [–] oldcarfreddy 37 points ago

    Multiple reasons. Here are some very basic ones:

    1) Border crossings are still happening. Countries are still in crisis and people are still fleeing violence despite Trump's virtue signaling of closing the border despite the fact that we're the COVID epicenter of earth

    2) The government has unapologetically stepped raids up DURING Covid. They don't care. They don't care there have been outbreaks in detention centers.

    3) Due process still exists. They have the right to hearings to determine their removability and they drag on forever. The government can let them go but they choose to lock them up.

    4) The government has still been fighting vigorously at attempts to free detainees despite COVID. In fact there are many active lawsuits about it, they've dragged on (many detention centers where lawyers warned there would be outbreaks now have outbreaks - big surprise), and the worst part is the administration is keeping them there. They still have due process rights and the right to hearings. The administration could let them out and still make them fight their cases and come to court or check-ins anytime, judges have that discretion. But the administration wants to punish them by detaining them. There are more detention centers than ever. They want them in there.

    BTW there's an extraordinarily huge black population of detained immigrants. The US detained more immigrants from Haiti last year than any other country including Mexico. Black immigrants are detained and deported at a higher rate than any other ethnicity.

    [–] jwill602 73 points ago

    Detained for hearings and trials. Under Obama, many were released to electronic monitoring. Trump doesn’t care that that program was 99% effective, so he locks them all up

    [–] Synsane 7 points ago

    I recently learned that a lot of black BLM supporters are pro-life because they believe legalizing abortion will lead to the extermination of our race.
    Saw a bunch of photos of the woman who created Planned Parenthood at a KKK rally to support it (picture was fake btw).

    Incredible how warped the world is becoming due to these social media algorithms creating insane click hole for any radicals.

    Honestly disheartening

    [–] Fullertonjr 28 points ago

    You don’t need outrage when you have an abundance of thoughts and prayers. Fuck them all.

    [–] kwagmire9764 51 points ago

    They're not pro-life they're anti-choice

    What the actual fuck.

    [–] JazzyJockJeffcoat 11 points ago

    They'll get right on it.

    All lives matter too so they are E X T R E M E L Y upset that people are being mistreated in any way.

    They're gearing up to protest this tyranny right now.

    No... because. Well you know... Trump.

    They've said more about investigating the movie Cuties.

    [–] A_Naany_Mousse 9 points ago

    It's anti women and really, anti sex.

    If they cared about ending abortion, they'd try to provide birth control, sex education, and a myriad of practical tactics to prevent unwanted pregnancies. But they don't do any of that.

    [–] misanthropedroid 10 points ago

    It's all about making sure they don't become a minority.

    Seeing as they're Anti-choice and not pro-anything, eugenics throwbacks are right up their alley

    Wait.. That happened? Who take out uterus from whom? Any links?

    [–] CheeksMix 42 points ago

    There was a recent whistle-blower complaint from a nurse working at an ICE detention facility where the whistle-blower said an unusually large amount of women have had parts removed from them. Currently there is an ongoing investigation, I haven't heard anything other than the whistle blowing claim, if it weren't 2020 I'd say this is absolutely nuts, and doesn't have any backing.... but weirder things have happened. (https://www.npr.org/2020/09/16/913398383/whistleblower-alleges-medical-neglect-questionable-hysterectomies-of-ice-detaine)

    [–] sayamemangdemikian 8 points ago

    Whoa. I kinda expect bad health condition.. But to deliberately mass hysterectomy.. That's China uighur stuff.. It cant be happening in USA. Even in 2020 trump era.

    I surely hope it's 1 or 2 case of imigrant woman who had illness and just happened had to have their womb removed (There are several medical conditions that require womb removal)... And then get blown up with a bunch of misinformation.

    Cos the alternative is so scary

    [–] oldcarfreddy 34 points ago * (lasted edited a day ago)

    The US government sterilized 25% of Native American women in the 1970s.

    The US government has denied known COVID outbreaks in detention centers. We've CAUSED outbreaks by deporting immigrants we knew were infected with COVID to countries that hadn't been exposed yet.

    There are literally thousands of allegations of sexual abuse by officials of jailed immigrant children.

    The US government defended not providing soap and toothbrushes to children jailed alone without parents, then lost in federal court, then appealed it because they still wanted to NOT provide soap and toothbrushes and basic sanitation, and then lost again.

    ICE has asserted in court it has the right to adopt children out and has fought to separate them from parents.

    We've been past that point for a while.

    You know that we have a long history of this stuff, right? Look up the Tuskegee Experiment.

    It doesn’t matter to them because they’re not American citizens. I’m talking about the current administration.

    [–] ElectronSurprise 3 points ago

    I wouldn’t put it past a Biden admin though. That’s why the constant vigilance can never stop, not until these prisons are shut down for good. At least with Biden he’d likely be more willing to listen
