We are pleased to report that racial prejudice worldwide has been solved by white people blacking up their social media accounts.  From your mum’s friend Karen on Facebook to Fitness_Fanatic22 on Instagram, attention seekers worldwide have sought to centre themselves within the current protests.  

“Don’t be unfair, we are raising awareness,” said one of your Facebook friends, who somehow thinks anyone in the world is unaware of racial prejudice, “it’s important that we show we care, as we white liberals aren’t like those nasty people,” continued the beneficiary of a system structurally designed to favour their skin tone.  “These black screens are as important as repeatedly sharing traumatic videos of people dying.”

Meanwhile, plumped up duck bill lips turned to duck billed platitudes on Instagram, as white influencers crowded out the black lives matter hashtag, removing all information about the present protests in favour of a sea of blank black screens.

“If we all just find a way to #getalong we can solve this.  I believe #alllivesmatter and that include #blacklivesmatter as well” wrote wellness advocate Taylor Jaydon under a black screen with a grey silhouette of her face, “which is why I have designed a three week yoga breathing programme to help strengthen your lungs and maintain calm breathing, even with an officer kneeling on your neck, available from my website www.taylor-jaydon.com

The Herald applauds their efforts and is confident that racism is now solved, just like coronavirus was cured by clapping.
