I’m lonely, crampy, and generally miserable at the moment. Time to order a million sushi rolls to go with my Spongebob marathon.

I genuinely want this to be this year’s birthday cake with the words “Fuck Yeah” instead. I’m making this shit happen.

The troubling viral trend of the “hilarious” Black poor person
May 7, 2013
Charles Ramsey, the man who helped rescue three Cleveland women presumed dead after going missing a decade ago, has become an instant Internet meme. It’s hardly surprising—the interviews he gave yesterday provide plenty of fodder for a viral video, including memorable soundbites (“I was eatin’ my McDonald’s”) and lots of enthusiastic gestures.
But as Miles Klee and Connor Simpson have noted, Ramsey’s heroism is quickly being overshadowed by the public’s desire to laugh at and autotune his story, and that’s a shame. Ramsey has become the latest in a fairly recent trend of “hilarious” black neighbors, unwitting Internet celebrities whose appeal seems rooted in a “colorful” style that is always immediately recognizable as poor or working-class…
Rather sad, actually. Most of these people got in the news for doing good things (Like Antoine Dodson, that guy is actually a hero and a really good dude), and turning their personalities into “memes” for dumb white kids to laugh at completely trivializes what they should be getting praise for.
