Discussing Blackness on Reddit? Photograph Your Forearm First - The New York Times

The forum, one of the many on Reddit, featured a feed of jokes and memes and commentary circulated on social media by black people, and comment threads where discussions could unfold. A post parodied the discomfort many white people seem to feel with the phrase black lives matter. Participants riffed on the rapper Kanye Wests suggestion that slavery had lasted too long to have been involuntary . Conversations about topics in the news and personal encounters with racial bias were interspersed with sometimes off-color humor about sex, romance and lifestyle advice.
