Someone started a a page called fuckyesafricans in the vein of the “fuckyes” tumblr meme. For those unfamiliar with the format, the dry title is meant for irony filled humor to follow once you click the link.

Fuckyesafricans has its funny moments, but it lacks irony, which makes it kind of miss the point of the fuckyes meme. There are other ethnically oriented pages, so at least it’s nice to see someone repping for “the Africans.” The page, which takes submissions from readers, seems to be mostly aimed at youth in the diaspora since many posts are about generational conflict. Some posts seem like cathartic complaints about the purported abuses of African parents. Some things just seem out of date like post 117 about cellphones.
