Tweets From #WhatKindOfBlackAreYou, Part II (culture, childhood memories, food, music, hair styles etc.)

Edited by Azizi Powell

This is Part II of a two part series of selected examples of tweets from the April 16, 2014. twitter thread entitled #WhatKindOfBlackAreYou. That twitter thread was started by Feminista Jonea in response to producer/singer Pharrell's comments on the Oprah Winfrey television show that he was a "New Black":
"In April during an interview with Oprah, super producer Pharrell Williams christened himself a New Black, saying: "The New Black doesn't blame other races for our issues. The New Black dreams and realizes that it's not a pigmentation; it's a mentality. And it's either going to work for you, or it's going to work against you. And you've got to pick the side you're gonna be on." Pharrell's comments were met with equal parts side-eye and praise across the internet (Feminista Jones created the hilariously on-point hashtag #whatkindofblackareyou that set Twitter aflame for 24 hours). People were curious, if a bit confused. What exactly was a New Black, and who appointed Pharrell king?" http://gawker.com/the-curious-case-of-the-new-black-a-conversation-1649462578.

Part II of this series quotes tweets from the top tweets portion of #WhatKindOfBlackAreYou that focus on culture (food, hair styles & hair care, childhood memories, & other life experiences).

Click http://pancocojams.blogspot.com/2015/03/examples-of-tweets-from.html for Part I.

Part I quotes selected top tweets from #WhatKindOfBlackAreYou. Those tweets focus on race (including skin color), racism, and sexual orientation.

The content of this post is presented for cultural, historical, folkloric, and sociological purposes.

All copyrights remain with their owners.

Thanks to @FeministaJones for starting this twitter thread that showcases Black diversity. Thanks also to all those who are quoted in these posts.

WHY I DECIDED TO PUBLISH THIS SERIES
As a community folklorist who is interested in documenting Black cultures, I believe that some comments from twitter threads are of folkloric (historical, cultural) value as they reflect commenters' opinions, reminiscences, values, and viewpoints.

I also believe that (similarly to YouTube comment threads) specific tweets are easier to access and study when they are posted on blogs than when they are on their source site/s. Furthermore, (again similarly to YouTube comment threads), twitter threads such as #whatkindofblackareyou often include profanity and sexually explicit matter which may or may not be germane to the subject/s being discussed.

I chose the examples included in these posts for various reasons - because the comments reminded me of my experiences, or presented information about other Black experiences, or because the comments appeared to me to be representative of different opinions about being Black in the United States and elsewhere, and/or because I liked the way a comment was written or what the comment said.

I'm aware that other people quoting comments from that twitter thread might select other examples rather than the ones that I selected.

****
DISCLAIMER
This pancocojams series excludes sexually explicit content and uses a bracketed "profanity delected" note for those words so that this content might be available for use in schools. Unfortunately, this series doesn't include any of the (what I consider to high quality) pictures or videos that are included in that twitter thread.

No total number of top tweets that are found in "#WhatKindOfBlackAreYou and I didn't count the number of tweets that were included on that thread. However, I believe that these tweets are representative of those top tweets.

These posts aren't meant to be an overview of the "New Black" term. Visit http://www.clutchmagonline.com/2014/04/pharrell-seemingly-forgets-racism-still-exists-hes-new-black, http://www.teabreakfast.com/newblack-epidemic/ and http://www.randomhouse.com/rhpg/features/tracymorgan/excerpt.php "Introduction to Book I Am The New Black by Tracy Morgan for additional information and comments about the multiple meanings of "New Black" and varied Black reactions to that term. WARNING – Some of the comment sections of those articles contain profanity.
