Generalizations! Twitter has a funny way of making racist generalizations. Some popular trending topics have been #thingsdarkiessay #ChineseBreath #blackpeoplemovies and RIP Black Folks. In every joke is a little bit of truth. Again, African-Americans aren’t making it easier by participating in these trending topics.

When is it okay to generalize an entire group of people? For example, am I an inauthentic African-American if I despise watermelon? We are in a dangerous moment in history that we are becoming content with racial profiling and discrimination. It’s rather comical to constantly joke that Black Girls get mad if their hair gets wet. Most of these generalizations are true if you completely take the race out of the statement (If you consider Black to be a race and not a color). If another race were to participate in this trending topic, we would have a problem. History is making a full turn back to the days of Amos and Andy. We are so much better than this!

TIME OUT! Yall take a chill. Ya need to cool that shit out!
This ideology that racism is cool to joke about as long as it’s “in-house” is enough to make it okay for others to get involved. It’s one of our greatest tragedies as people to make other races believe we live in a post-racial society. I guess this is what should really make Black Women Mad.
African-American women are not angry, nappy, Jezebel, heauxes that lack moral implications to their being. African-American women have been thought of as inferior in our society for too long. It’s not only other races perpetuating this stereotype, it’s African-Americans as well. It’s time we support and appreciate them as much as they have supported and appreciated us.
It’s time we kill for our women. Time we heal our women, be real to our women. – Tupac
