Adore or despise them, GIFs are integral to the social experience of the Internet. But even a casual observer of GIFing would notice that, as with much of online culture, black people appear at the center of it all. Or images of black people, at least. Many of our most beloved entertainment genres owe at least part of themselves to the minstrel stage, including vaudeville, film, and cartoons. While often associated with Jim Crow—era racism, the tenets of minstrel performance remain alive today in television, movies, music and, in its most advanced iteration, on the Internet. Unlike other physical executions of blackface such as by Robert Downey Jr. Digital blackface uses the relative anonymity of online identity to embody blackness. Digital minstrels often operate under stolen profile pictures and butchered AAVE. Quite often it comes in the form of an excessive use of reaction GIFs with images of black people.

I would bet this is exactly what she is thinking about you, which is why she is willing to have a relationship with you aren't a Mormon. I can honestly say it has been the worst decision of my life. It is amazing how different values and outlooks, interpersonal relationships can be from family to family. My husband has gone from proselytizing and thinking he knows it all to a real spiritual seeker, albeit with a strong testimony in the church. In the interfaith marriages that work where one is LDS and the other is not religious, it only works out when the LDS partner is not fully a believer anymore. Who knows, but I think it was especially hard for the moms of young men.
