#ThanksgivingWithBlackFamilies is trending on twitter, and for good reason: black twitter is hilarious. Everyone knows that this holiday, arguable even more so than Christmas is about food and family. (And yes that is in the correct order)

Thanksgiving can be made good by the addition of a favorite dessert or bad because that one uncle showed up (you know who I mean).

The hashtag #thanksgivingwithblackfamilies took off on twitter and ratchet-ness ensued. (I describe ratchet as high level ignorance)

Is there something particular to your family, that is uniquely “black?” Or is this just twitter being twitter…?

Check out the tweets below:


In my fam, we have not one, two, but four people passing out mixtapes. I have one cousin that maybe the worst rapper of all time, like picture Rebecca Black “Friday” but even worse. My Dad says he is winning a thanksgiving rap battle… SMH.


The key to hiding food is in a place no one would go. Not just an unusual spot. It is the only way to secure leftovers. If your plate is found, it will be eaten.


All I have to say is YASSS. Just tell the truth.

This gets me the most… I’m like “BRUH.” But in my mind not out loud, because my Grandma says I’m not too old to get smacked.


Always! The trick is to wait until someone else gets up, and you ask for something.

We have a rule in our family. You must be engaged or married to bring a person. If you break this rule, you will be shunned by the rest of us. Also, we will talk about her or him. And we won’t hide it.


And for this one I have no words…
