It’s Black History Month — a time for the Nation to acknowledge the gifts and contributions that Black Americans have given this country. They say laughter is healing medicine, and for Black folks, it’s one of the most easily accessible forms of therapy.
African American culture is known for turning hundreds of years of pain into pure comedy; and Black History Month is no different. The social media trend of Fake Black History Moments has returned for yet another year of hilarity. Like Papoose becoming the first black man to get a shape up with his fitted on.
Or Smokey from the 1995 film, Friday, becoming the first Black man to ever get catfished.
