Black Twitter is back at it again! The #CivilRightsTwitter hashtag re-emerged and the tweets are a guaranteed LOL.

Scrolling through social media most days means that something funny is bound to be spawned from Black Twitter creatives.

What was originally created by Tracy Clayton in August, re-emgered yesterday with new chuckle-worthy moments at the hands of the #CivilRightsTwitter hashtag-- memes made with the civil right pioneers of the past mixed with the petty, shady, and downright funny things of the present. See some of the highlights below:
