#TheRootArticles: Black Twitter Starts Hashtag War Over The Root’s Headlines

The Root, one of the most popular spaces for Black culture on the Internet, found itself the target of a hashtag making light of its headlines. The hashtag, #TheRootArticles, is still going strong after hitting Twitter timelines over the weekend and even got a response from the outlet via one of its writers.

How the hashtag came to be is something of a mystery, but Twitter user @Craig’s_VCR was credited with making it popular, although he gave that honor to a number of other Twitter users. To sum it up, there is a contingent of Black Twitter that feels The Root is pushing an agenda that attacks straight Black men, the “hoteps,” and the generally ashy to use the terms to describe those on that squad (no shots).

The hashtag takes articles using The Root’s headline bent but twisting them to suggest the so-called agenda. In response, writer Michael Harriot slammed the chorus of critics but did so in a way to show they’re not studying their haters at all.

“This past weekend, a group of heroes united to form f*ckboy Voltron on social media and created the hashtag #TheRootArticles to fight our agenda of destroying the straight black man,” Harriot wrote.

Harriot went on to say that Black men were driving the hashtag home and while men definitely dominated the output, some Black women chimed in with their own hit backs.

We’ve collected some of the tweets below and on the following pages. Let us know what you think of this debate in the comments.

‘Twas the Night Before School Starts

‘Twas the night before school starts
And I. Can’t. Even.
Contain my excitement
Because they’re all finally LEAVIN’!

Lunch boxes, backpacks, and shoes by the door
Filling summer days with fun my job is no more

They’re all finally in bed- bathed, brushed, and sleepy
While I’m over here feeling anything but weepy

Mom is so ready to finally get peace
The messes, the meals, they’re about to just cease

We boated, we swam, we drove and took trips
We’ve milk-shaked, and grilled and ate our body weight in chips

Summer was full of fun, pools, and sun
But now I just need it to really be done

It’s time for some structure, some routine and some math
and for mom to relax in a nice quiet bath

When the alarm strikes tomorrow, the kids they must go
There’s history and science and lessons to know

Of course I will miss all these kids and the happy
I will try not to think about memories and be sappy

Instead I will grin because summer, that’s a wrap
And now I can finally relax and take MY NAP.

So off you go kids, and have a great day
We both need this break, until roughly next May!

Dylann Roof’s Sister Starts GoFundMe Page For Wedding Since Her Brother “Ruined It”

Amber Roof, the sister of accused Charleston church shooter, Dylan Roof, recently took down a GoFundMe page where she had the nerve to scream “woe is me” because her racist killer sibling spoiled her wedding plans.

“As many of you know Michael and I had to abruptly cancel our wedding day, due to the tragedy that occurred in Charleston,” she wrote. “June 21st was suppose to be the happiest day of our lives. It is the day every girl dreams of, it was the day we dreamed of. We had each other, we have the perfect venue, and we had our vows ready to be read. We were ready! We had planned out every detail for months and months. It was going to be the PERFECT day! Our day was the exact opposite. Our wedding day was full of sorrow, pain, and shame, tainted by the actions of one man.”

The 27-year-old South Carolina native was scheduled to get married to her U.S. Army recruiter fiancé Michael Tyo on June 21. Four days prior, Dylann Roof allegedly accepted the hospitality of members of the Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal church, only to shoot nine people dead over his own racist warped thinking. Nevertheless, he has already been given preferential treatment from his captors and Amber Roof is displaying the same sort of selfishness that cause innocent lives to be lost for no apparent reason other than hate.


Her goal was to raise $ 5,000 “to cover lost wedding costs, to pay bills, and to send us on our dream honeymoon.” She also claimed to donate 10 percent of her earnings to the victims’ families. It was the least she could do, huh?

Once Charlotte’s WSOCTV got into the mix, Amber took down the GoFundMe page with the exact same shame she claimed to endure from her brother’s actions. Several users were reportedly critical of the page and one user even donated $ 9 to symbolize each of the victims.

A GoFundMe employee sent a statement to Channel 9 which read, “The campaign in question was removed by the Campaign Organizer. Organizers have the ability to remove their campaigns whenever they choose.”

Her wedding still has no scheduled date. Also, fuck her wedding.

News in Brief: Study: U.S. Wastes 2 Million Hours Annually Figuring Out Where Tape Roll Starts

BLOOMINGTON, IN—A new study published Friday by researchers at Indiana University revealed that U.S. citizens waste approximately 2 million hours annually trying to figure out where a roll of tape starts. “According to our data, thousands of hours are squandered each day by Americans running their fingers along the outside of a roll of tape until they stumble upon the frayed edge where the tape begins,” said the study’s co-author Bethany Cohen, who noted that the amount of time Americans fritter away bringing the roll of tape up close to their face and slowly tracing their fingertips around its perimeter accounts for nearly $ 15 billion annually in lost productivity. “Furthermore, we discovered that when Americans eventually find where the tape starts, they waste an additional 4 million hours per year meticulously picking at the tape with a fingernail until they have a large enough tab to peel …

News in Brief: NRA Starts Up Their Shit About What Would Be Even Greater Injustice

FAIRFAX, VA—In the wake of Wednesday’s mass shooting that left nine dead at a church in South Carolina, sources confirmed today that National Rifle Association officials had already started up with their shit about what would be an even greater injustice. “What happened in Charleston is a terrible tragedy, but what would be even worse is if we reacted to this event by passing laws infringing on our constitutional rights,” said NRA board member Charles Cotton, who, right on cue, let loose the same predictable flood of steaming horseshit about how the real threat facing Americans comes from legislators who would attempt to restrict access to firearms. “While we mourn those killed, we should never let an incident like this distract from our defense of [the fact that I myself am a pile of human waste who is fundamentally incapable of responding to the deaths of innocent people …
