Each generation has or will experience events that cause division among us; perhaps it is human nature. As individuals, we decide how we choose to navigate our differences whether it is politics, gender, nationality or race. Social media has provided a platform for people to voice their thoughts and opinions on that which divides us. This can lead to hateful rhetoric, but when social media is used for good causes and funny jokes it can bring us together in the best ways.
Twitter users @TheParacelsus and @jmemc10 went viral when they chose to go a different route with their racism ‘opinions’ on social media. The two began throwing the best roasts at each other, filled with racial one-liners, but both saw the exchange as lighthearted comedy. Some Twitter users thought the one-line jokes were offensive and crossed the line of humor into racist, while others thought the punchlines showed a healing moment of two strangers bonding through humor. Bored Panda has the whole thread below along with the funny Twitter reactions. What do you think?
