Black Twitter Is Showing Love To Their Parents And We Love To See It

In, walks "My Parents, Their Creation", a social media trend where people show big love to their parents.

Culture & Entertainment

Black Twitter is literally one of the best places on this planet. In fact, when we were all initially trapped in the house and forced to quarantine, it was one of the only places we knew we could count on for relief. It's filled with encouragement, tips, and its infamously comedic gems. It's a place for America to come steal their best content ideas, and where all the trends are traced back to. You will laugh, you will screenshot. It's for us, and by us, exclusive to who we are as a culture, and honestly, a tribute to how we are able to see our way through anything.

Viral commodities are a dime a dozen in this sphere, with one of the latest capturing our hearts in the process. In, walks "My Parents, Their Creation", a social media trend where people show big love to their parents, while showing off a pic of themselves for resemblance comparison. This trend shows recognition to nostalgic black love that created who we are.

And the world wide web is loving it.

Some showed off their fine parents:

Sometimes, you're not able to shake that nagging feeling of gloom, eventually finding yourself in a toxic pattern of unhealthy habits and behaviors. There's a larger issue that goes way beyond just needing a break.

There seems to be a big question mark over our heads when it comes to sex during pregnancy. When ironically enough, the same way the baby got in is the same way it’s going to get out (in a lot of ways). A wise person said that to me – I just can’t recall who, so consider this to be a shoutout to a real one because in all actuality it’s true.
