If you didn't hear it Here, You'd never believe it.

A major part of internet culture is sharing pop-culture references as forms of reaction as opposed to a comment, now sharing these images may be racist.

Many online have been labeled as racist for sharing the imagery of Oprah Winfrey from her recent interview with Meghan Markle, in an act that has been labeled Digital Blackface.

Performing Blackness, be it IRL or online, is not an acceptable form of expressing reaction or dissatisfaction, especially not in exchange for likes and retweets,’ the organization wrote in its post.

The Slow Factory Foundation went on to insist that people shouldn’t be sharing the recent onslaught of Oprah memes just because they’re popular, suggesting that they are reminiscent of white people wearing blackface in minstrel shows.

‘Since the #MeghanandHarry interview on Oprah, we’ve been seeing a lot of digital blackface infractions with a few of Oprah’s reaction gifs and images going viral, but that doesn’t mean you should be using them,’ the non-profit explained.

So now, any meme we share is an affront to someone?

    The progressives seem really nuts lately. Driving a car is considered racist...especially if it has air conditioning. Don't ask my why...I'm not sure.

      Lately? Their self inflicted psychosis has been burning out their brains for some time. Maybe some kind of critical mass is afoot. The problem is their meltdown is effecting all of us.

        I think it's the record high cosmic rays we've had these past few years. I have observed that it seems to affect the unaware, those with no introspective abilities (awareness of one's own behavior) the most...for the rest of us, a growing intolerance of their shenanigans!

    Next it'll be "digital racisms:

    Digital AOC memes?
    Digital 'the squad' memes?
    Digital Eye Schiff head memes and others?
    Digital Man Splaining...Like Captain Picard Memes?
    Digital Sexual Assault...Like Pepe La Cumuo Memes?

    Well, my response would be a "Double Digital Bow Finger" Meme!
