BTR News: Dear Black People, Stop Playing With White People On Social Media

A black woman made a “joke” on Twitter and got a reaction to her tweet from white people who found her “offensive”. She apparently made the same post on Facebook and got a similar reaction from white people and the moderators of that platform. She then makes a post on another platform created by a co-founder of Twitter called Medium and complained about being censored on the other two platforms and made accusations that she is a victim of the silencing of Black women. W. Kamau Bell promoted the post and asked people to get into their emotions over what should be a non-controversy all things considered. #CrackerBarrelGate
