SAN FRANCISCO, CALIFORNIA - JANUARY 24: Tesla CEO Elon Musk leaves the Phillip Burton Federal Building on January 24, 2023 in San Francisco, California. Musk testified at a trial regarding a lawsuit that has investors suing Tesla and Musk over his August 2018 tweets saying he was taking Tesla private with funding that he had secured.

Elon Musk, the billionaire entrepreneur, has taken aim at CNN after the network published a story about whites who post GIFs and memes featuring black people.

CNN claimed that if you’re white and you’ve posted a GIF or meme of a black person to express a strong emotion, you may be guilty of wearing ‘digital blackface.’ This type of claim is just another example of the left’s obsession with identity politics and their attempts to divide us based on race.

According to CNN’s analysis by John Blake, who is black, if you’re black and you’ve shared such images online, you get a pass. But if you’re white, you may have inadvertently perpetuated one of the most insidious forms of contemporary racism. You may be wearing “digital blackface.”

Blake also referenced an article in Teen Vogue by Lauren Michele Jackson, an assistant professor of English at Northwestern University and a contributing writer at The New Yorker.

She claimed that there is a trend on the Internet where white people find humor in exaggerated displays of blackness, perpetuating the harmful notion that black people are inherently over-the-top or “walking hyperbole.”

Twitter users wasted no time in blasting both the author, Blake, and CNN in general for publishing the piece. Musk also got in on the critique, responding with a “100” percent emoji to a user who reacted to CNN’s post: “Jesus fking christ shut the fk up.”

It’s ridiculous to suggest that posting a GIF or meme featuring a black person is a form of racism. This is just another example of the left trying to shame people into silence by labeling anything that they disagree with as ‘racist.’ It’s time to reject this nonsense and start focusing on the real issues facing our country.
