Last week, one of my followers commented how Black people don’t take anything seriously. A truer comment has never been made as we find the humor in everything. It’s the only way to survive centuries of persecution. So when Yahoo made the grandest of all fuckups and mistakenly (insert Blackest side-eye imaginable) tweeted that trump wanted a “nigger” navy instead of a “bigger” navy, Black Twitter hopped on the #niggernavy and proved three things for the millionth time: Black Twitter is the littest place on these inter webs Black people take NOTHING seriously. You cannot imitate our Blackness.
