The issue of racism of memes has surfaced in the USA, as expected, and I must admit that it made me rethink my use of memes.
I use memes and gifs a lot for work.
I tend to prefer Judge Judy, but I have started to rethink some of the memes I would be using for rolling eyes for instance, or anything involving sass.
See this for some background: https://www.teenvogue.com/story/digital-blackface-reaction-gifs
I do not agree that you can only use reaction gifs "of your race": because I do not have a race, I do not adhere to the mistaken racial theories, and I do not want to limit my GIFS to myself or have to undergo surgery and study law to become a New York Jew aging female lawyer so I can use Judge Judy again in 30 years...
But I agree that some choices of reactions GIF reflect a prejudice that cannot just be discarded as "too woke" or "to politically correct".
