    On the subreddit, you’ll find tweets from regular users as well as famous personalities like Samuel L. Jackson, Terry Crews, and Bernice King, the daughter of Martin Luther King, Jr. Some of them are just pithy insights that have nothing to do with race.

Others spread the trending hashtag #LivingWhileBlack, where people share their stories of encountering prejudice every day.

    1. Wait, what?

    Source: Reddit

    Here is one of those comments that’ll make you do a double-take. This lady probably didn’t mean it like that, but it comes across as though she has opinions on how much slaves should cost.

    2. Seriously, benefits too

     

    Source: Reddit 



    Don’t look down on your garbage man. Chances are, he’s making a pretty good salary hauling your trash off the curb. He probably also has generous benefits and lots of vacation time.

    3. The internet’s got your back

    Source: Reddit

    This would have been almost impossible for the age of the internet. But Twitter managed to reunite these two best friends a full 12 years after they lost contact.

    4. Thanks for using me as an example!

    Source: Reddit 



    Here’s a moment that students dread and teachers do. Seriously, do you have to give us a panic attack in the middle of a test? We’re already keyed up.

    5. This isn’t the relationship you want

    Source: Reddit

    This lady is trying to pretend that men prove themselves by being persistent when they’’re cut off from their significant others. But this guy isn’t having it. And guess what? He’s 100 percent correct.

    6. The things you do for your kids…

     Source: Reddit



    Being a parent can be weird. There’s no other situation where you would consider a 4-year-old your enemy. But as he said, he doesn’t make the rules — he just participates in them.

    7. It’s not for everyone

    Source: Reddit

    Whether marijuana is legal in your state or not, you probably know someone who’s really, really into weed. They might talk about the different strains and smells, but let’s be honest…to those of us who don’t use it, it just smells like weed.

    8. He’s got a point

    Source: Reddit

    If you require your significant other to be 6 feet 5 inches tall, you’re severely limiting your dating options. Not even 4 percent of American men are above 6 feet 2 inches. Also, don’t prioritize looks over personality!



    9. That’s a real talent

    Source: Reddit

    Good on Kevin Hart for recognizing this man’s amazing talent and patronizing his business. It’s a big deal for a huge celebrity to recognize a small business and promote it. This guy deserves it!

    10. Let’s talk about that

    Source: Reddit 



    The failures of the American workplace and education system have been called into question more and more lately. Young people are struggling to find work and faced with living off of the bare essentials or sometimes not even those.

    11. Workplace etiquette can jump in a lake

    Source: Reddit

    We’ve all heard it’s rude to talk about how much you make, but these co-workers proved that rule wrong. Good for them – working together to help everyone get a fair wage. And shame on the employer for withholding the wages she deserved.

    12. Terry Crews is the man

    Source: Reddit 



    Terry Crews is a giant among men, both literally and figuratively. He’s a passionate advocate for sexual assault victims, even openly discussing his sexual assault experience and empowering others to come forward and seek justice.

    13. You and me both

    Source: Reddit

    Let’s face it: most of us don’t exactly know who the Kardashians are or why they’re famous. But we know way too much about them, including their net worth, relationship history, kids, and more.

    14. It’s now or never

    Source: Reddit

    Fun fact: there’s a scientific reason your hunger disappears if you ignore it! It’s a bit complex, but essentially it has to do with dropping hormone levels and teaching your brain to focus on other tasks.

    15. We knew it all along

    Source: Reddit 



    Have you ever wondered if you’re smarter than most of the people you know? Chances are, you’re right. You might have even been smarter than them when you first suspected it as a child.

    16. He’s not wrong

    Source: Reddit

    It’s good that Sesame Street is trying to add more representation into its stories — in fact, the long-running children’s TV show has been doing that for decades. But, when it comes to homelessness, are you going to ignore Oscar?

    17. Oh, the 2000s

    Source: Reddit 



    This was a dark chapter of many of our childhoods. What was happening to us? Why did we feel the need to have a Chipmunk version of every popular song?

    18. She saw an opportunity and took it

    Source: Reddit

    Here’s the difference: in Uganda, people know all about the devastation of vaccine-preventable diseases and take measures to protect themselves. In contrast, the 2019 measles outbreak in the U.S. was due to privileged anti-vaccine parents.



    19. Do you know how much fast food costs?

    Source: Reddit

    Sure, it’s tempting to stop and spend a couple of bucks on a hamburger but the money adds up fast. When you’re paying your bills, you know the value of a few dollars!

    20. This hashtag is long overdue

    Source: Reddit 



    The #LivingWhileBlack hashtag has highlighted some of the most entrenched racism that still exists. Since non-POCs probably aren’t aware of this problem, the hashtag is an important way to talk about the challenges black people face daily.

     

    21. Taking the game seriously

    Source: Reddit

    Talk about getting into character. This guy has no time to rat people out. Instead, he wants to live up to being Spiderman — in the game, that is.

    22. Dusty in here

     Source: Reddit



    Finding a kidney donor can be a huge challenge. This man was a match for his wife — but first, he had to get in shape. The two of them look so healthy and happy together!

    23. Jackson is living up to his reputation

    Source: Reddit

    Samuel L. Jackson is known for his hard-swearing, no-nonsense personality. This tweet is the perfect example of what he’s all about — telling it like it is!

    24. Don’t be afraid to go for it

     Source: Reddit



    This artist saw a need for a Google doodle and put himself out there to offer one. The result? He’s now employed by one of the biggest companies in the world. Way to recognize talent, Google.

    25. He had me for a second there

    Source: Reddit

    This guy is parodying the people who humblebrag on social media about how much they have. So, he pulled a bait-and-switch. Look at his gorgeous house! His gorgeous picture of a house, that is.

    26. And the Award for Pettiness goes to…

    Source: Reddit



    Living in an apartment can be tough. You have to deal with neighbors crammed into a tight living space. People who complain about how loudly you walk are so annoying…although this might not be the best response.

    27. It should be in the Olympics

    Source: Reddit

    You’re sleeping soundly and suddenly you feel it — the urge to use the bathroom. Your bed is so warm and cozy, but you know that you won’t be able to relax with a full bladder. Cue a midnight dash to the toilet.

     

    28. Know what side of history you’re on

    Source: Reddit



    Many people admire Martin Luther King Jr., but let’s face it — it’s easy to look up to someone who’s no longer alive. If King still had a voice in modern politics, people might not like what he had to say.

     

    29. There are other options!

    Source: Reddit

    When Netflix announced it was removing the sitcom “Friends” from streaming, people went wild. But here’s the thing — there are so many better TV shows out there, people. Try a new one.

    30. This is straight-up evil

    Source: Reddit 



    I can’t decide whether this is funny or horrifying. Honestly, it’s a little bit of both. This person saw the opportunity to mess with a total stranger and ran with it. That poor parent was probably having a heart attack.

    31. Everyone can relate

    Source: Reddit

    For some reason, no matter how long you’ve been out of school, you probably still have dreams about failing tests or missing the bus. Apparently, it leaves such an impact that we can’t ever forget it.

    32. Oh, is that all?

    Source: Reddit 



    Articles like this are kind of demeaning because let’s face it, Oprah’s lifestyle is not like any of ours. It’s pretty easy to be stress-free when you don’t ever have to worry about a paycheck.

    33. Poor Taiwan

    Source: Reddit

    Welcome to the worst possible way to find out that you failed your midterm and quite possibly an entire college course. Note to all college professors: maybe don’t grade tests on an airplane.

    34. Don’t flirt when she can see your bank balance!

    Source: Reddit



    This guy thought he could play it smoothly with a pretty bank teller. Unfortunately for him, she had his bank account open in front of her, and it wasn’t all that impressive.

    35. The hero we all need

    Source: Reddit

    These companies think they can fool us by packaging everything in bigger bags. Do they really think we’ll believe that we’re getting a full bag of chips just because the bag is bigger?

    36. The heroine we all need

    Source: Reddit 



    January 2019 saw a polar vortex blow through the Midwestern United States, bringing some of the coldest temperatures in history. Without this woman’s efforts, these people very likely would have died, as others did.

    37. The adrenaline gives you so much energy

    Source: Reddit

    There’s nothing worse than sitting and waiting for someone to respond to a text after putting put yourself out there. Use the rush of nerves to go do some dishes. It’s a win-win.

    38. Steve would be proud

    Source: Reddit 



    Australian zookeeper and conservationist Steve Irwin died in 2006 after being stabbed in the heart by a stingray. But Irwin loved animals so much, there’s no doubt he would have even shown compassion to the animal that inadvertently killed him.

    39. It’s got us all excited

    Source: Reddit

    Every language is different, and the way each one uses punctuation is different, too. This Twitter user’s adorable assessment of Spanish punctuation was immortalized in one succinct tweet.

    40. The forgotten age

    Source: Reddit

    The year 2016 was weird, punctuated by political upheaval. But there were also a few months where the US quite literally had a scourge of clown scares. In the wake of the election, we just…stopped talking about them.



    41. It’s too early for this

    Source: Reddit

    Whenever someone asks the internet what’s on its mind, they’re bound to get some odd answers. Chauncy has some questions about grammar and anatomy that have us a little dizzy.

    42. There’s a real difference in how we talk about them.

    Source: Reddit

    In the conversation surrounding gun violence in the United States, there’s a definite difference in how we talk about white people and the way we talk about POCs. This person makes a very important point.



    43. Ahmed is amazing

    Source: Reddit

    Not only did this man draw this amazing picture in less than five minutes, but he also did it while balancing the paper on one arm. Ahmed deserves more than street credit — he deserves a career as an artist!

    44. A helpful life hack

    Source: Reddit 



    Forget drinking coffee, eating greasy food, or having a protein shake — this person has discovered the ultimate hangover cure. A nice dose of panic and you’re up for the day!

    45. Hope Jessica is doing okay

    Source: Reddit

    It’s impossible to go through life without any regrets. For example, this guy knows he did Jessica wrong. Hopefully, her week of no recess didn’t turn into a life of crime.

    46. “It’s not that cold”

    Source: Reddit 



    For some reason, some guys think the moment it gets really cold is the perfect time to prove something. Why they think we’ll be impressed instead of horrified is a mystery.

    47. Instagrammers, take heed

    Source: Reddit

    Okay, okay, this is a little harsh. I’m sure many people who use Instagram also read books. But if you’re posting “inspirational” quotes that you think are deep, you might want to get a library card.

    48. Not everyone likes Beyoncé

    Source: Reddit



    Beyoncé is known far and wide as “Queen Bey” and one of the most talented pop stars of the 21st century. That may well be the case, but some people just don’t like her music, and that’s okay, too.

    49. Careful, he’s a hero

    Source: Reddit

    Was this wrong? Yes, but it was also kind of genius. You can’t help but admire a man who had the guts to pull off this bold-as-brass move for an entire YEAR, just to get free fried chicken.

    50. You’ve got me there

    Source: Reddit 



    Okay, this is an inspiring story that also raises a point. Chalk it up to poor phrasing in the article title, but it does make it sound like this guy was making things harder on himself. 

    51. Sometimes the solution is simple

    Source: Reddit

    Okay, we get what this person is saying. But you have to be privileged to even say something like this. Money can’t buy happiness but living without enough of it sure does a number on your emotional and mental health.

    52. The crisper: where things go to die

    Source: Reddit 



    We all try to eat healthily – we do. But that crisper is at the bottom of the fridge. You toss your veggies in it and then they just wither away, forgotten.

    53. A workout routine we can get behind

    Source: Reddit

    Okay, we’re joking — don’t do drugs, kids. But you can’t deny it’s an effective weight loss routine. Also, why were all the songs so long back then?

     

    54. You don’t know my life

    Source: Reddit

    Bread is good and butter is good and humans have evolved to prefer hot foods over cold ones. Also, bread is nutritionally dense and the combination is full of carbohydrates. There, see? It’s scientific.



    55. I think I’d be proud

    Source: Reddit

    This child might not be the kindest, but he’s going to go far in life. As for his friends, they’re either going to get smarter or need to start seeing a therapist to get over being called dumb in elementary school.

    56. And I’ve never forgotten

    Source: Reddit

    Teens today will never understand the horrible agony of waiting a full 20 hours to download music from an illegal site on dial-up internet. And honestly? I’m happy for them. Those days were horrible.



    57. And now he’s unstoppable

    Source: Reddit

    It’s amazing to think that such a talented athlete could not see clearly throughout his entire career. He may now have excellent vision for the first time in his life.

    58. Just let us cite Wikipedia, already

    Source: Reddit

    In its earliest days, Wikipedia was unreliable and full of unvetted information. For some reason, teachers still treat it the way they did back in 2001, even though it’s now rigorously reviewed.



    59. I award you no points

    Source: Reddit

    It’s not hard to make macaroni and cheese. Make the sauce nice and thick, get it piping hot, and for goodness’ sake, don’t do whatever these two ladies did to massacre those noodles.

    60. A lesson he’ll never forget

    Source: Reddit

    Once a girl starts to date, she’ll lay claim to your hoodie. It’s big and warm and it smells like you, okay? You’re never going to get it back, so don’t even try.

    61. He’s doing a great thing for his neighbors

    Source: Reddit 



    This amazing human being knew that with the heavy snowfall, his elderly neighbors wouldn’t be able to get out of their homes. So, he decided to call for help and provide a team with everything they needed to keep the neighborhood safe.

    62. Don’t fix it if it’s not broken

    Source: Reddit

    To be honest, some girls do this too. If you don’t like the way you look in photos, you have to stick with the good ones. It’s less annoying than someone who constantly updates their photo.



    63. You need new friends

    Source: Reddit

    If you live alone (or heck, even if you have a family), you don’t have to wear pants. No one can force you to. If your friends pull this move, it might be time to move on.

    64. Asking the real questions

    Source: Reddit

    Okay, let’s be real — all it takes to start an ant war is a grain of sugar. But that being said, this guy is finally asking the important questions about everyone’s favorite documentaries. David Attenborough has some tough questions to answer.



    65. Get your rent’s worth

    Source: Reddit

    Extroverts and introverts can’t always understand one another. Extroverts wonder how anyone could enjoy being alone at home, while introverts wonder how anyone could be with people all day.

    66. You never know what’ll be on the test

    Source: Reddit



    We all knew kids like this who took notes on absolutely everything. Back in middle school, they did it with different colored pens. In college, they used so many layers of bullet points, it made your eyes cross.

    67. Chaotically good

    Source: Reddit

    This guy has been dealing drugs and kidnapping, so obviously, he’s the bad guy, right? That’s what you know! In reality, he wanted to bring important medical care to an underprivileged community.

    68. Representation is in the little things

    Source: Reddit 



    The color of a Band-Aid might not mean much to some people. To others, it makes all the difference in the world. It means that having their skin color is being normalized and recognized.

    69. Two words: Google docs

    Source: Reddit

    There are few things more devastating than losing a document you spent hours working on. If it happened to you even once, you probably still reflexively save just to be sure.

    70. She sums it up perfectly

    Source: Reddit

    You should treat everyone with respect, but that doesn’t mean letting anyone walk all over you. Sometimes, older people forget that it’s not okay to treat younger people rudely just because they’re young.



    71. Wholesome 101

    Source: Reddit

    There are plenty of prejudiced people, while others refuse to acknowledge their privilege. But this man wanted to take the time to thank the non-POC who respect and defend everyone, regardless of skin tone.

    72. No one can win this one

    Source: Reddit 



    This is a problem that couples of all races and creeds can relate to. Call it the battle of the sexes if you want, but if you’re married or in a relationship, you’ve probably experienced it from one side or another.

    73. Now we finally understand

    Source: Reddit

    Remember being a kid and wondering why your mom was freaking out over you forgetting to take the chicken breasts out of the freezer? Now that we understand just how exhausting the work is, we get it.

    74. No, no, that’s an update

    Source: Reddit 



    Plenty of companies treat their employees poorly, giving them insufficient time off and making them beg for vacation or personal days. No, no, we’re just letting you know that you’ll be short-staffed that day.

    75. United against a common enemy

    Source: Reddit

    Not every white person is racist. Those who aren’t need to firmly denounce white nationalism and stand up for their POC neighbors. Well done, Miss Texas!

    You’re sleeping soundly and suddenly you feel it — the urge to use the bathroom. Your bed is so warm and cozy, but you know that you won’t be able to relax with a full bladder. Cue a midnight dash to the toilet.

     

    28. Know what side of history you’re on

    Many people admire Martin Luther King Jr., but let’s face it — it’s easy to look up to someone who’s no longer alive. If King still had a voice in modern politics, people might not like what he had to say.

     

    29. There are other options!

    When Netflix announced it was removing the sitcom “Friends” from streaming, people went wild. But here’s the thing — there are so many better TV shows out there, people. Try a new one.

    30. This is straight-up evil

    Source: Reddit 



    I can’t decide whether this is funny or horrifying. Honestly, it’s a little bit of both. This person saw the opportunity to mess with a total stranger and ran with it. That poor parent was probably having a heart attack.

    31. Everyone can relate

    Source: Reddit

    For some reason, no matter how long you’ve been out of school, you probably still have dreams about failing tests or missing the bus. Apparently, it leaves such an impact that we can’t ever forget it.

    32. Oh, is that all?

    Source: Reddit 



    Articles like this are kind of demeaning because let’s face it, Oprah’s lifestyle is not like any of ours. It’s pretty easy to be stress-free when you don’t ever have to worry about a paycheck.

    33. Poor Taiwan

    Source: Reddit

    Welcome to the worst possible way to find out that you failed your midterm and quite possibly an entire college course. Note to all college professors: maybe don’t grade tests on an airplane.

    34. Don’t flirt when she can see your bank balance!

    Source: Reddit



    This guy thought he could play it smoothly with a pretty bank teller. Unfortunately for him, she had his bank account open in front of her, and it wasn’t all that impressive.

    35. The hero we all need

    Source: Reddit

    These companies think they can fool us by packaging everything in bigger bags. Do they really think we’ll believe that we’re getting a full bag of chips just because the bag is bigger?

    36. The heroine we all need

    Source: Reddit 



    January 2019 saw a polar vortex blow through the Midwestern United States, bringing some of the coldest temperatures in history. Without this woman’s efforts, these people very likely would have died, as others did.

    37. The adrenaline gives you so much energy

    Source: Reddit

    There’s nothing worse than sitting and waiting for someone to respond to a text after putting put yourself out there. Use the rush of nerves to go do some dishes. It’s a win-win.

    38. Steve would be proud

    Source: Reddit 



    Australian zookeeper and conservationist Steve Irwin died in 2006 after being stabbed in the heart by a stingray. But Irwin loved animals so much, there’s no doubt he would have even shown compassion to the animal that inadvertently killed him.

    39. It’s got us all excited

    Source: Reddit

    Every language is different, and the way each one uses punctuation is different, too. This Twitter user’s adorable assessment of Spanish punctuation was immortalized in one succinct tweet.

    40. The forgotten age

    Source: Reddit

    The year 2016 was weird, punctuated by political upheaval. But there were also a few months where the US quite literally had a scourge of clown scares. In the wake of the election, we just…stopped talking about them.



    41. It’s too early for this

    Source: Reddit

    Whenever someone asks the internet what’s on its mind, they’re bound to get some odd answers. Chauncy has some questions about grammar and anatomy that have us a little dizzy.

    42. There’s a real difference in how we talk about them.

    Source: Reddit

    In the conversation surrounding gun violence in the United States, there’s a definite difference in how we talk about white people and the way we talk about POCs. This person makes a very important point.



    43. Ahmed is amazing

    Source: Reddit

    Not only did this man draw this amazing picture in less than five minutes, but he also did it while balancing the paper on one arm. Ahmed deserves more than street credit — he deserves a career as an artist!

    44. A helpful life hack

    Source: Reddit 



    Forget drinking coffee, eating greasy food, or having a protein shake — this person has discovered the ultimate hangover cure. A nice dose of panic and you’re up for the day!

    45. Hope Jessica is doing okay

    Source: Reddit

    It’s impossible to go through life without any regrets. For example, this guy knows he did Jessica wrong. Hopefully, her week of no recess didn’t turn into a life of crime.

    46. “It’s not that cold”

    Source: Reddit 



    For some reason, some guys think the moment it gets really cold is the perfect time to prove something. Why they think we’ll be impressed instead of horrified is a mystery.

    47. Instagrammers, take heed

    Source: Reddit

    Okay, okay, this is a little harsh. I’m sure many people who use Instagram also read books. But if you’re posting “inspirational” quotes that you think are deep, you might want to get a library card.

    48. Not everyone likes Beyoncé

    Source: Reddit



    Beyoncé is known far and wide as “Queen Bey” and one of the most talented pop stars of the 21st century. That may well be the case, but some people just don’t like her music, and that’s okay, too.

    49. Careful, he’s a hero

    Source: Reddit

    Was this wrong? Yes, but it was also kind of genius. You can’t help but admire a man who had the guts to pull off this bold-as-brass move for an entire YEAR, just to get free fried chicken.

    50. You’ve got me there

    Source: Reddit 



    Okay, this is an inspiring story that also raises a point. Chalk it up to poor phrasing in the article title, but it does make it sound like this guy was making things harder on himself. 

    51. Sometimes the solution is simple

    Source: Reddit

    Okay, we get what this person is saying. But you have to be privileged to even say something like this. Money can’t buy happiness but living without enough of it sure does a number on your emotional and mental health.

    52. The crisper: where things go to die

    Source: Reddit 



    We all try to eat healthily – we do. But that crisper is at the bottom of the fridge. You toss your veggies in it and then they just wither away, forgotten.

    53. A workout routine we can get behind

    Source: Reddit

    Okay, we’re joking — don’t do drugs, kids. But you can’t deny it’s an effective weight loss routine. Also, why were all the songs so long back then?

     

    54. You don’t know my life

    Source: Reddit

    Bread is good and butter is good and humans have evolved to prefer hot foods over cold ones. Also, bread is nutritionally dense and the combination is full of carbohydrates. There, see? It’s scientific.



    55. I think I’d be proud

    Source: Reddit

    This child might not be the kindest, but he’s going to go far in life. As for his friends, they’re either going to get smarter or need to start seeing a therapist to get over being called dumb in elementary school.

    56. And I’ve never forgotten

    Source: Reddit

    Teens today will never understand the horrible agony of waiting a full 20 hours to download music from an illegal site on dial-up internet. And honestly? I’m happy for them. Those days were horrible.



    57. And now he’s unstoppable

    Source: Reddit

    It’s amazing to think that such a talented athlete could not see clearly throughout his entire career. He may now have excellent vision for the first time in his life.

    58. Just let us cite Wikipedia, already

    Source: Reddit

    In its earliest days, Wikipedia was unreliable and full of unvetted information. For some reason, teachers still treat it the way they did back in 2001, even though it’s now rigorously reviewed.



    59. I award you no points

    Source: Reddit

    It’s not hard to make macaroni and cheese. Make the sauce nice and thick, get it piping hot, and for goodness’ sake, don’t do whatever these two ladies did to massacre those noodles.

    60. A lesson he’ll never forget

    Source: Reddit

    Once a girl starts to date, she’ll lay claim to your hoodie. It’s big and warm and it smells like you, okay? You’re never going to get it back, so don’t even try.

    61. He’s doing a great thing for his neighbors

    Source: Reddit 



    This amazing human being knew that with the heavy snowfall, his elderly neighbors wouldn’t be able to get out of their homes. So, he decided to call for help and provide a team with everything they needed to keep the neighborhood safe.

    62. Don’t fix it if it’s not broken

    Source: Reddit

    To be honest, some girls do this too. If you don’t like the way you look in photos, you have to stick with the good ones. It’s less annoying than someone who constantly updates their photo.



    63. You need new friends

    Source: Reddit

    If you live alone (or heck, even if you have a family), you don’t have to wear pants. No one can force you to. If your friends pull this move, it might be time to move on.

    64. Asking the real questions

    Source: Reddit

    Okay, let’s be real — all it takes to start an ant war is a grain of sugar. But that being said, this guy is finally asking the important questions about everyone’s favorite documentaries. David Attenborough has some tough questions to answer.



    65. Get your rent’s worth

    Source: Reddit

    Extroverts and introverts can’t always understand one another. Extroverts wonder how anyone could enjoy being alone at home, while introverts wonder how anyone could be with people all day.

    66. You never know what’ll be on the test

    Source: Reddit



    We all knew kids like this who took notes on absolutely everything. Back in middle school, they did it with different colored pens. In college, they used so many layers of bullet points, it made your eyes cross.

    67. Chaotically good

    Source: Reddit

    This guy has been dealing drugs and kidnapping, so obviously, he’s the bad guy, right? That’s what you know! In reality, he wanted to bring important medical care to an underprivileged community.

    68. Representation is in the little things

    Source: Reddit 



    The color of a Band-Aid might not mean much to some people. To others, it makes all the difference in the world. It means that having their skin color is being normalized and recognized.

    69. Two words: Google docs

    Source: Reddit

    There are few things more devastating than losing a document you spent hours working on. If it happened to you even once, you probably still reflexively save just to be sure.

    70. She sums it up perfectly

    Source: Reddit

    You should treat everyone with respect, but that doesn’t mean letting anyone walk all over you. Sometimes, older people forget that it’s not okay to treat younger people rudely just because they’re young.



    71. Wholesome 101

    Source: Reddit

    There are plenty of prejudiced people, while others refuse to acknowledge their privilege. But this man wanted to take the time to thank the non-POC who respect and defend everyone, regardless of skin tone.

    72. No one can win this one

    Source: Reddit 



    This is a problem that couples of all races and creeds can relate to. Call it the battle of the sexes if you want, but if you’re married or in a relationship, you’ve probably experienced it from one side or another.

    73. Now we finally understand

    Source: Reddit

    Remember being a kid and wondering why your mom was freaking out over you forgetting to take the chicken breasts out of the freezer? Now that we understand just how exhausting the work is, we get it.

    74. No, no, that’s an update

    Source: Reddit 



    Plenty of companies treat their employees poorly, giving them insufficient time off and making them beg for vacation or personal days. No, no, we’re just letting you know that you’ll be short-staffed that day.

    75. United against a common enemy

    Source: Reddit

    Not every white person is racist. Those who aren’t need to firmly denounce white nationalism and stand up for their POC neighbors. Well done, Miss Texas!
