Black Twitter’s Thanksgiving Game Has No Chill
This year, we saw the creation of the #ThanksgivingWithBlackFamilies and #ThanksgivingClapBack hashtags. These have to be some of the greatest tweets of all time. From snatched edges to the White person who is always at the Black family function, Black Twitter hit so many of the notes of the holiday through the lens of complex Black experiences in the United States. Here are a few of our favorites.
