In case you’ve been living under a rock or don’t have a Twitter account, Dec. 21 is when Black people will supposedly gain superpowers.
Twitter user @lottidot kicked it all off when she replied to a thread about the COVID-19 vaccination on Dec. 5. She claimed the government was using the vaccine to change our genetic code. “Yeah, but at the same time, this disease was created in China and was only supposed to attack us, then a guy altered it to make it attack everyone,” she tweeted. “Yeah it’s worldwide, but the [government] ain’t handling it as they should [because] their ultimate motive is a vaccine to alter our genetic code.”
Someone then asked her about what the government would benefit from changing everyone’s genetic codes and @lottidot replied that the government wants to prevent us from unlocking our full potential.
“As Black people, genetically we are stronger and smarter than everyone else,” she tweeted. “We are more creative. On December 21, our real DNA will be unlocked and majority will be able to do things that we thought were fiction. Learn who [you] are as a people. They wanna make us average.”
The jokes took off from there. Twitter user @poeticjustiZZ tweeted, “The best part about being Black on December 21st is that I’m either going to be laughing hysterically with Black Twitter at all the jokes, or I’m going to have super powers. It’s a win-win in my book.”
“Black Twitter got me HYPED for the n*ggrigenesis occurring on December 21st,” tweeted @pfunk1130. “I hope I get one of the better superpowers.”
I don’t know about y’all, but I sure hope I can fly. Imagine all the money I would save on airplane tickets. Check out some of the most hilarious Twitter reactions to what is supposed to go down on Dec. 21.
