We all have things we’ve always wanted to know about other people but were either too afraid to ask or positive that asking would not only be inappropriate, but also the worst possible thing we could do. So we sit with these questions, maybe do a little research, maybe talk about them with close friends and family as we try to piece the puzzle together, and generally maintain a sense of uncertainty. That’s just life.
But when a Facebook thread that began with an image reading “Okay black people … ask white people one question you’ve always wanted to know” popped up in my feed, I thought, “Can’t resist!” Being a white person myself, I was genuinely curious what black people might like to know. And let me tell you, the comment section did not disappoint.
Not only was it hilarious (and I mean tear-inducing, coffee-spitting, laugh-out-loud hilarious), but it was also informative — for everyone. (For example, I didn’t know white people had a distinct smell or that I should be washing my meat before I cook it — like why? with what? for how long? I HAVE QUESTIONS.)
Some of the most hilarious comments:
