This morning, while trolling around Twitter, I happened upon the top trending topic of the day, which, interestingly, was #IfIWasWhite. Now once all the grammar Nazis pointed out that the actual hashtag should be #IfIWereWhite, I found that Black Twitter had done it again — taking over the Internets and a hashtag that reportedly wasn’t even about them and delivering some of the most hilariously accurate one-liners we’ve seen in a bit.
Word is #IfIWasWhite was actually supposed to be about U.S. Olympic snowboarder Shaun White who failed to bring home a medal in the halfpipe, but folks don’t be knowing. So it only took about 0.2 seconds for #IfIWasWhite to turn into a series of racially charged musings of what life would be like as an Anglo-Saxon. Read and prepare to laugh and give a stereotypical “I know that’s right” head nod.
