Twitter Thinks Trump’s Iran Attack May Trigger WWIII … But Black Folks Got Jokes!
On Thursday evening it was announced that the President authorized a U.S. strike that killed the commander of Iran’s Quds Force, Qassem Soleimani. The move is expected to provoke “harsh retaliation” from Iran and almost instantly WWIII was trending on Twitter. Although news of a possible impending war is bleak, leave it to Black Twitter to find some comedic relief in the situation.
I know it’s a serious situation, but there’s room for seriousness and levity. The jokes have been hilarious. https://t.co/5GpjXScc8K

As expected, there are those who can’t find the funny in such a serious situation, and we get it. But, historically Black people have used humor as a way to mask pain and get through tough times in life. So, as this meme put it…

What side are you on — laugh to keep from crying or this is too serious for jokes?
