Black folks know how to tune a bish out real quick. And after hearing the news that Trump dun authorized a drone strike in Iran, killing the country’s top military leader, Qasem Soleimani…..black folks rang the alarm. Obviously, Iran is coming for our necks, striking back at us for Trump’s shenanigans. And while we should be taking this threat to heart, some of us are deciding to react in other ways and you can’t help but chime in on the fun. Even if it is denigrating, laughter is medicine for the soul and at this point…what more do we really have?
While the two superpowers are beefing, Black twitter is letting folks know we have nothing to do with this raging war. Said nope! We are not the ones!
The White House defended the attack in a tweet saying, “Soleimani was actively developing plans to attack American diplomats and service members in Iraq and throughout the region”.
France’s deputy minister for foreign affairs, Amelie de Montchalin, stated on a radio program: “We are waking up in a more dangerous world. Military escalation is always dangerous. When such actions, such operations, take place, we see that escalation is underway”.
Here is what Carbi B had to say:
It’s just like that old saying, “Sometimes you gotta laugh to keep from crying”. And black people know how to do just that. After all, we’ve overcome so much. We know how to create ‘good times’ even in the midst of chaos. We’re built like that.
Ok! Last one for the road… saving the best for last.
