I don’t know what joker over at BuzzFeed thought it would be a good idea to film a video called ‘27 questions black people have for black people’, but it was always going to be a risky move and the response it has received proved why.

And cue the backlash:
Sooo "Questions white people have for black people…but asked by black people so it seems OK" is what you meant? 🤔 https://t.co/tI1HexuNRC

Do the black people in the BuzzFeed video know the Negro Community frowns on their shenanigans? #BuzzFeedVideoQuestions

Are the Black people in that video the ones white Buzzfeed employees refer to when they say "I have Black friends"? #BuzzFeedVideoQuestions

So basically, BuzzFeed are getting KILLED on social media for this video. Fair enough really because it’s pretty awful. Like some of the Tweets mention, I’m not even sure if those questions are really from black people, or if a bunch of unintentionally racist white people at BuzzFeed wrote them and just got a bunch of black people to read them out. Big time swing and miss from BuzzFeed either way.
But hey, if the ex-leader of the KKK can denounce racism, then there’s hope for everyone.
