Yahoo navy

Yahoo has apologized for a race-baiting tweet that contained a racial slur. The tweet was sent out at 10:01 pm on January 5th by Yahoo Finance. Yahoo later claimed the racial slur was a typo. But we know better.

The tweet read: “Trump Wants a Much Nigger Navy: Here’s How Much It’ll Cost.” It was later deleted.

The tweet became a trending topic and, of course, the online collective known as “Black Twitter” turned an obvious race-baiting situation into a joke at their own expense under the hashtag “#NiggerNavy”.

I would say “do better”, but why bother? This ignorance is why Donald Trump was elected president.


  • Petty Rubble

    I love Black Twitter

  • Oliver Brady

    Agreed. Ignorance is the reason agent Orange was elected president. Thank you for telling the truth.

    Petty Officer reporting for duty LOL…this shit is sad but entertaining on a Friday….

  • Blue

    I wouldn’t be surprised if it wasn’t. I appreciate the resulting Black Twitter comedy though. If nothing else, black people can find some humor in a situation.

    This doesnt surprise me when it comes to Yahoo.

  • countrygal

    The most hilarious ish in a long time. They want us to get mad and get ignorant. No honey. Not today. We have bigger issues, like a low key white supremacist in the white house

    Awww, are they mad that the attempt to anger us FAILED!!

    Black folks been making negatives positives since they shipped us over here!!

  • Shay Bay

    I wouldn’t put it past them…people will do anything to bring attention to themselves, be it positive or negative attention. But the B is next to the N on the keyboard…who knows

  • AllAroundTheWorldSameSong

    And that is the real problem. #EPICFAIL
    We no longer fail for the distractions…which this was!!

  • ?Sugar&Spice?

    Oh God.

  • AllAroundTheWorldSameSong

    And humor is what we will need to keep us from snapping out.

  • Queen of EVERYTHING

    Social media falsely placates us as a people to keep us constantly distracted from our emotions turning into action. We need a REAL leader so badly. Stop laughing… REAL unity is strength.

  • NaeNay

    I would imagine that whoever typed this is a professional social media person or writer, and they didn’t proofread before hitting the submit or post or tweet button? (Not a twitter user). I’m supposed to believe that? All the other words weren’t misspelled. Typo my a**.
    I’m also supposed to believe that autocorrect corrects from bigger to n*****? Umm hmmm
    And white folks are upset over the response from black twitter instead of the incident that started this whole mess in the first place?
    Ugh, I’m going back to bed.

  • AllAroundTheWorldSameSong

    Even got the Divas “Over it!”

  • Annaunki

    “For every White person calling #NiggerNavy “racist”, remember that if Black people didn’t have humor, you all would be extinct.”

    __________________________________________
    THIS IS SO TRUE!

  • AllAroundTheWorldSameSong

    And that about sums it up. In short, the folks who should be upset are laughing at it….because we already know that this is par for the course….while the ones it doesn’t affect (in any way) get to be mad that we aren’t mad!! Yup, Too Funny

  • Chardonnai

    When trying to bait black people goes wrong…..

    Pretty much. We found humor in their fukk up. You know a lot if them think they’re perfect anyway

    This also could have been a (non) clever way to try to recruit AA to the navy. It worked in Dallas when that police chief told AA if they didnt like what the police was doing they should come join.

    Recruitment tripled.

    Fired?…for a mistake against black people. LMAO.

  • Locapoca

    They probably low key got a raise ?

    Of course it was intentional, but they didn’t get the reaction they wanted.

    1And in the assembly that was at Antioch there were certain prophets and teachers: both Barnab?ah and Shim?on who was called Niger, and Lucius of Cyrene, and Manah??m who had been brought up with Herodes the district ruler, and Sha’ul. Acts 13:1

    Notice the word “NIGER”. Pronounced n?’-ger, this means “Black”. The prophet Shim’on (Simeon) was also called “Black. He was called black becauseeee…you guessed it! He was a black man. All of the prophets were negro. Another example that sheds light on the appearance of the Hebrew Israelites. We do that today. Well, most do. We see a friend and say, “what up black”. Same thing here.

    The original meaning is “Black”. Don’t allow racist individuals misunderstanding affect you negatively. No need to get made when someone calls you a N*gger. There’s no shame in this world.

    Research. Learn you identity.

    Yahoo employees are the ones in the comments on Yahoo calling people n*ggers, that’s why autocorrect corrected bigger to n*gger.

    Arnold Schwarzenegger responds to Donald Trump’s Friday morning tweets that slammed the ratings of “The New Celebrity Apprentice” and its new host.

    “There’s nothing more important than the people’s work, Donald Trump,” Schwarzenegger wrote. “I wish you the best of luck and I hope you’ll work for ALL of the American people as aggressively as you worked for your ratings.”

  • RationalThinkersUnite

    How can they be outraged when we’re not outraged? We want white people to be upset over something that affects is only? This is the most backwards, counter productive message we can send to our community.

  • RationalThinkersUnite

    I agree 100%!! This ish is not funny at all and we are the only ones laughing. Yeah we know how the feel about us but that doesn’t make it a free for all. I’m disgusted

  • RationalThinkersUnite

    Black folks been making negatives positives since they shipped us over here!! – and where has that gotten us exactly? We still getting shot down like dogs so im not seeing the positivity yout speak of….

  • RationalThinkersUnite

    We don’t have to get mad and ignorant, but we shouldn’t get silly and passive. Just move on…

  • softness1

    I feel bad for Arnold because a lot of people will not watch the Apprentice because of Donald’s affiliation with the show. I know I won’t and I used to love that show.. I know if Donald gave up his producing credits I will probably watch.

  • softness1

    Well the N and B are next to each other on the keyboard..ijs

  • We Can Do This

    All black people should close their accounts with Yahoo.

    Lets make their stock plummet!

  • Michelle

    But auto correct usually doesn’t let you type n!gger but ……

  • OkWhatevah

    You are absolutely right.
    I wasn’t suggesting that we get mad every time racism shows its face, I’m just not sure if laughing at it (or making jokes about it) is productive either. It seems to be a defense mechanism in the light of powerlessness. I’m not criticising Black Twitter for their response, I’ve just never been one to laugh off disrespect. But like you said, we do have to pick our battles…cuz Lord knows we have enough of them to sort through.

  • softness1

    That’s if you’re typing from your phone. If you type on your computer, whatever you type is there.. I don’t have auto correct set up on my laptops and work computer.

  • OkWhatevah

    I’m cordial to everyone but my long handled spoon stays on deck. You’re guilty until you’ve proven yourself innocent. I know that may sound unfair but it saves me a lot of time/effort – some of these folks are able to hide that —- well.

    When you wake up, you realize how deception the church is. I blame the leaders at the very top. Some folks truly don’t know

  • Allihave2say

    I think the black pastors of old taught without question what they were told. I remember having white Jesus hanging in the church next to the benediction posting. I was listening to Chuck Swindle and he denied this woman woman was black to protect his sheep and that was the last I listened to him. He made it a point to clarify that she was not an African woman.

  • A-way29

    I remember chuck swindle. Mother used to listen to him all the time. Heard of John McArthur?

  • Allihave2say

    No. Will look him up. I liked Chuck but he got me there.

  • A-way29

    He’s big in the Christian church. Instead of looking to what the scriptures say, Most check his interpretation. This man had a Q & A at his church. Someone asked him if someone can be saved after receiving the mark of the beast. His response, Yes. Which is FALSE

    I was at a Baptist church, asked the pastor about folks being saved if they receiveD the mark of the beast. He said, “of course not”!. Then I mentioned what McArthur said he started defending the guy! Smh.

    I said no, the Word is clear. This folks look to man too much smh.
