So last night, some poor intern at Yahoo probably lost their job with this tweet.
Learn to proofread, Beth! Anyway, Black Twitter was not bout to just let that slide and the GOLD going down in the #NiggerNavy hashtag has me crying. Now, I know some of my white friends/readers are slightly uncomfortable reading that hashtag, and that just means you were raised right. But Black America has enacted a brief – very brief – reprieve where you can read and even chuckle about the n-word without collapsing into a puddle of guilt. Note, this reprieve is not extended to speaking or typing, so I bet not see none of y’all’s handles on Twitter trynna participate. I already know Buzzfeed is probably finding one of their many Black folks to compile a list and blur out the i-g-g in each tweet so they can post it and catch those clicks real quick.
And tell your Trumpublican cousins to stay out of our hashtag with their whining about how racist it is that we can say it and they can’t.
Edit: I don’t check for Buzzfeed so I was wrong. I mean, yes, they already made a post, but they didn’t blur anything.
•This makes me so upset bc all I see now is comments about the boys dropping friends and not being able to keep friends. Seriously, you don’t know what personally goes on in their lives everyday, the only thing we see is their videos, photos, and tweets..we don’t know what goes on behind their camera and phone screen. I’m glad he’s finally addressed this, proud of you E.❤️•
