I am back and I see that I have been away for a few days but it seems so long. During those few days, I have been on social media and all I have been seeing is Arthur memes. I don't know who created these memes (not that we ever do know) but I have to say they are hilarious. I saw this picture just now before making this post and I kind of chuckled on the inside because we say this about ourselves.
I love my people but I have to admit we create things and sometimes we do take it too far. At the same time we know that it's not to hurt anyone it's just to have fun. I shouldn't laugh but why not ? My people are creative, funny and everything America has is because of us. I'm not about to get into a history lesson but I will say that I am sorry that the creator of Arthur feels this way. As old as he looks, who would have thought he'd be on social media ... NO SHADE!
Growing up, I loved Arthur and I also feel like if you're mature enough being apart of the audience looking at these memes, then offense shouldn't be taken heavily. I could understand why the creator would be mad and maybe just MAYBE I MIGHT be offended because most of those memes were derogatory and involved vulgar language. Being who I am I would have laughed.
Moral of the story is, black people don't ruin anything, we make it funny. Kenlo is signing out.
