My Melanin-Deficient Readers Respond to Negotiate Terms of #BLAXIT

Yesterday, I published a post on what Black folks will take with us if we decided to make our exit (BLAXIT) from the United States. It was jumped off by Ulysses Burley III at The Salt Collective and basically, we are taking EVERYTHING awesome. Because we created/invented/brought them.

My white readers realized that they will be left with emptiness, and their comments made me howl. Some negotiated, some hit their wall slide, and some insisted we bring them with us. My Asian and Latinx sisters replied too, because they will be on our side: because minority solidarity.

Here are some of the conversations, from my comments and my Awesomely Luvvie Facebook Page.

#BLAXIT copy

Melissa: Heavens, I think us white people are down to dried peas and smallpox.

Josh: I’m just a white dude but I will miss most of this too much. Can I come along if I promise to be cool?

Tesha: Josh, because you asked nicely (and because we might need some manual laborers in Onyxica), yes, you may join us. Just know your stay will be subject to periodic reviews and you’ll be rooming with Wayne Brady.

Lauren: You’re going to leave kitten heels aren’t you? Just for spite.

Luvvie: Hell yeah. We want this to hurt.

Carly: I like kitten heels. My beauties, I will barter with you. I am going to create the IBJLC, the International Black-Jewish Lady Coalition, it will make NAFTA look like a joke. Mmmm, you’re gonna want some of this pastrami on rye, Donna Karan knits and polio vaccines. I will trade you some Law for some Jazz. <3

Jessica: We gotta take the polio vaccine and any other medicinal breakthrough based of the use of HeLa cells. Just saying.

Cynthia: Welp. With that, white society has been annihilated.

Carly: I am going to need some Little Richard, ice cream, traffic lights and moisture for this hair of mine. The Coalition is going to offer some specials on the five-day work week and brisket. Early American cinema is a free/equal trade. Monotheism also free.

Susan: Wayment, Carly kinda messed me up with monotheism. Who gets Jesus? Blacks or Jews? I mean, he’s Jewish, but do they really need him?

Carly: We will give you Jesus. We want Sammy Davis Jr. ::poker face::

Angelica: I believe the entire Rat Pack comes with us bc cool and we are taking all the cool with us.

Audra: Sorry to do this but, kitten heels stay, this tactic is in place to further emphasize the meaning of “now you’re coming up short”, without us.

Carly: I see what you did there.

Michelle: Well if all the black people go then we Asians will follow. And we’ll take the noodles. Udon, chow fun, ramen, linguine, spaghetti all of it. No noodles for ‘merica.

Luvvie: YES. Solidarity. Take ALL them noodles back!

Imani: YASSS Girl! Go ahead and take it all back! Take the chopsticks, take the kimonos, take the anime and manga, take yoga (for y’all who don’t know, India is an Asian country), martial arts, and every damn thing that says “made in China”. Let them figure that shit out.

Anita: Asians are for sure following the crowd out the door!! We’re taking back bindis, threading, half the medical professionals and engineers, most of Silicon Valley, and LEAVING the Simpsons’ half-ass Apu accent. Enjoy your messy eyebrows.

Stacey: #nochill right here. The eyebrow game is gonna be HORRID

Rachael: SHIT. All we have left is NASCAR, boiled meats and Conan O’Brien. :'( TAKE ME WITH YOU!!!

Dana: And mayonnaise. Y’all got mayonnaise.

Lisa: Fuck!! Not NASCAR!!! Don’t you DARE leave me with NASCAR….


Susan: Rachel Dolezal is going with you folks as punishment for taking Idris Elba ( ALREADY EXITEDSOMETHING) and Mac and cheese. I’m fine keeping my boiled meats #cornedbeef

Viola: The devil is a lie….we will not be taking Rachel. But as a show of good faith we will give you Omarosa 😁

Lindsey: They are taking the good greens and leaving kale behind? No! Noooooo

Lola: yeah the collards are going, Lindsey!

Pamela: I have two rows (28 feet long each!) of collards growing in my garden. I planted them from seed. They’re staying!! 😂 I’d rather come with you, but if I can’t I’m saving seeds. I also have onions and garlic, just in case.

Remy: I mean we’re leaving Raven so y’all can keep The View. #begrateful

Cresensia: I will feed the white people but on behalf of the hispanics its going to cost you! Bahaha

Lauren: We’ve still got Larry Bird and Macklemore 😐

Amanda: Also someone needs to take me with because my skin will shrivel up and die without all the butters.

Erin: You gotta leave us SOME of the butters..I mean, white girls get ashy, too! I guess I can learn how to make fried chicken, if I must.

Latasha: I will leave you one butter cause one day we might come back and need friends

Erin: It’s gonna have to be one big ass tub of butter, my elbows get thirsty.

Luvvie: NO. All butters come with us!

Angie: They didn’t say anything about coconut oil… I’m keeping it on a technicality.

Taja: Whoa, whoa, whoa…WHERE in Europe are they harvesting coconuts to make coconut oil? Taking that back, too.

Erin: Look…you’re taking the butters. You gotta leave us the coconut oil.

Mauri: Nope. No mercy. We might export it to you at like quadruple the cost. Maybe.

LaRonda: Work that Jergens.

Frances: Aw shit. All that’s left on the porch is a can of creamed corn and Rachel Dolezal. FML.

Y'all can have her.

Y’all can have her.

Vanessa: We Mexicans are already applying for work visas on the Isle of Noir, we’re taking the Aloe Vera too!! And tequila, agave sugar/honey, tortillas, beans, guacamolé, actually ALL the crops (because migrant workers, enough said), Salsas (dip and dance), ALL the maids (because South America) – who’s gonna clean your houses, build your houses, and landscape your yards/gardens now gueros?!?!

Erin: You can’t have the honey, every damn bee farmer I’ve ever seen has my complexion. And I clean my own house. Shiiiit, I can’t afford ya’ll! And I’ll just have my Cuban husband get all the supplies we need. Lol. I also landscape my own and my husband is redoing our bathroom. What else you got?

Jane: Don’t take the fried chicken. Please do not take the fried chicken.


Jane: Well, we deserve to have it taken from us…

Lisa: Every breast, thigh and wing is outta here!

Maribel: Just take it from the northern states. Let chicken be in the south.

Jane: Just leave a couple wings… please, just a few little wings.

Stella: You can keep the drum stick but just one.

Tanya: ya’ll can have that “Cream of Chicken” though

Jane: Oh thank you… ugh Cream of Chicken. I suppose we will have to eat it over soggy toast too.

Nicole: Y’all can have chicken nuggets. They not real chicken anyway

Jane: The punishment just keeps getting worse and worse

Nikia: Jane, I’m sorry – the yard bird has got to go. Consider duck. LLS

LaRonda: No, Jane, fried chicken goes with us. Talk to yo’ people. And you seem like a nice lady, but yo’ people…SMH. Just no.

Maribel: Fine, take the fried chicken but the lawrys stays.

Sef: This is the chicken we’re leaving behind:

Canned whole chicken

Sarah: Damn. I’m white, poor and southern. Everything on this list gives me LIFE. TAKE A TOKEN WHITE GIRL WITH YOU!

Dante: You got good credit? PAHAHAHA

Cresensia: I got good credit. where we going?

Sherrie: I was wondering what we were gonna do with those that insisted on coming with us. We may need to create a committee and have them prove their value. You know how they do us now. Lol!!

Sarah: I can sing! I’m a dancer. I can cook. Take care of children.

Tracy: Under One Condition Tho, In Honor Of Rosa P, You Gotta Ride In The Back!!

Windy: On behalf of white people who aren’t dumb as hell…please don’t leave us!!! James Earl Jones & The Allstate Man gone would kill me (and I’m not even mentioning seasoning)

Nikia: There will be applications for asylum. We are a peaceful people.

Katie: Seriously! We’re sorry! We’ll be so good, we promise! Maybe we could FaceTime with you guys or set up a foreign exchange program?

Phyllis: Windy, tell you what, if you can wrestle for Wendy Williams’ and/or Stacey Dash’s seat, you can come with.

Windy: I’m smaller than Wendy but bigger than Stacey…I can break her like a twig…it is ON!!!

Kathryn: You’re telling lies….we know Wendy and Stacey don’t even have seats! Damn, turning us against each other in fights neither of us can win….you’ve watched us well!


Alden: All we white folks are gonna have left is mayonnaise, polka music, and the insane Republican party! You at least have to send back humanitarian aid packages of hot sauce.

We will leave mayonnaise for them. THEY ARE WELCOME!

We will leave mayonnaise for them. THEY ARE WELCOME!

Marquetta: Ixnay on the hot sauce. It’s classified with seasonings

Reesha: Get em from Hillary! She said she’s always got some in her purse.

Kathryn: (Handcuffing myself to Matt McGorry in case he gets a day pass….and other reasons)

Nicole: So many of these things hurt- great actors and musicians, all the butters, fried chicken, jazz… but I think what hurts the most is cotton. Cotton! Come on now! Also, you can have fried chicken when you pry it from my soon to be dry, polyester-wearing hands.

Shannon: PLEASE don’t leave us! ‘Cause I know Jesse Williams is gonna be the President of #BLAXIT and God knows more white people need to hear his truth!

And then the pièce de resistance is from Alden:

You haven’t thought this through all the way. I completely understand wanting to get the fuck outta dodge and taking all your good stuff with you. (Noticed you were leaving Stacy Dash behind, that seems unnecessarily cruel.) But you’re gonna need a few token white folks.

Without a few of us, you wouldn’t have any horror movies. When some demonic voice screams out at 3am black folks are just wisely gonna get the fuck up outta there. Movie over. Only a white person is going to walk their stupid ass down that long dark hallway to get themselves killed/possessed/or eaten.

And speaking of movies, you’re going to want a few token white folks in your movies walking around saying inane white folk catch phrases like, “Damn! That is too spicy!” or “As long as it don’t hurt my credit score I’m in!” or “I love to be on time!”

And, who are you going to make fun of on the dance floor?

Who’s going to parade around with their dogs in matching sweaters?

When you get sick, there will be times you’re gonna want some bland food. Who’s gonna cook bland, tasteless food for you? Black women? Please.

Your world will be void of plaid.

Who’s going to voluntarily live in all the really cold places?

Once in a great while, you’re gonna want some mayonnaise. That shit works on some things.

Without straight white males, your YouTube videos of people trying to kill themselves doing stupid ass shit will be weak.

PLEASE send me the token white person application. I am ready to fill one of your middle-aged, straight, white male slots.

DEAD floor gif

LMAO!!! Alden might need to come with us. He has made such a compelling case. Some of our white friends might need day passes to the Republic of Noir. We’ll talk it over with the Council of Onyx People Everywhere (COPE).

LuvvNation is the absolute BEST.

      Beta Israelis are Ethiopian Jews. Black Hebrews are unofficial Black Jews.

      There are mixed Jews. Lisa Bonet & Zoë Kravitz are Ashkenazi Jews. My Haitian Jewish ass is Ashkenazi as well.

      So, I’m taking matzo ball soup with me for when I get sick.

    • Boogie July 13, 2016, 4:44 pm

      No Jews…everyone keeps tryna blow y’all up. We don’t need that attention.

      • beth July 16, 2016, 9:08 pm

  • Brenda July 12, 2016, 11:38 am

    Mayonnaise and polka music? I mean, I’m a fan of both, but if that’s ALL that’s left, we are just NOT going to make it.

  • Negra With Tumbao July 12, 2016, 11:40 am

    Y’all know that Hillary Clinton is stalking this post somewhere trying to come up with a black great great great grandmother so she could be 2/ 168ths nigra… so she can try to get on the mothership.

    Gary Owens is trying to come talmbout he can’t leave his wife and kids.

    Sorry bruh.. and your jokes aren’t funny.

    • CarpeBootium July 12, 2016, 2:50 pm

      Nah man, we are taking Gary Owens. We already traded Raven Simone for him. Besides, you can’t have a Tyler Perry play without him.

      And Hillary is just trying to come over because she knows once Bill sees all that ass leave the shore, he’ll swim to the Land of Noir.

      • Sean July 12, 2016, 5:55 pm

        Oh yeah! We taking ass, booty, cakes, cheeks, etc. also thick lips, thick thighs and Afros and baby hair.

        Gary’s black. He’s already on the bus. But we can negotiate for Eminem.

        • Van July 12, 2016, 7:39 pm

          Uhhh…Eminem and his black woman hatin’ self can stay right where he is. He can’t come. You’ll just have to snag a few CDs on your way out to remember him by. He’s not aging well anyway.

    • Nordic Shieldmaiden July 13, 2016, 9:49 am

      Hillary Clinton’s worth money. White people will *pay* to have her go with you! Name a price. (I suggest a high price, because…$$$ Cha Ching!) Kills two birds. We get rid of her, and your new Republic has starter funds. *smiles*

  • Andrea Bates July 12, 2016, 11:51 am

    Dying. Dead. I cried reading yesterday’s post and comments, but omgahhhh. Done.

    Jewish white girl transplanted from NYC to the south here. I will make chicken soup and matzo balls for all y’all if you take me with you. 😉

    • Jasmine July 12, 2016, 3:01 pm

  • Monica July 12, 2016, 12:01 pm

    And everyone in the Republic of Noir will lock their car doors when the token white men walk by. I’m doing that now here in LA and it makes my heart sing when they realize what I’m up to!

    We are NOT leaving them Hamilton!

    • Cherra July 12, 2016, 12:36 pm

      All the Hamilton cast is coming anyway, so we’re good. We’re taking Audra McDonald, Sara Ramirez, Lin-Manuel, Daveed Diggs, Titus Burgess, James Monroe Iglehart, Phylicia AND Condola Rashad…Kristin Chenoweth and Idina Menzel will be the only ones saving their Broadway entertainment. We’re taking Patti LuPone out of pure pettiness.

      • PJ July 12, 2016, 1:04 pm

        *Screaming* @ “We’re taking Patti LuPone out of pure pettiness.” I have perished. I think she’ll be sitting real nice with our seasoned divas…Patti, ‘Retha, Gladys and n’em

      • Ms QT Pie July 12, 2016, 2:37 pm

        Since we’re taking Patti LuPone can we also snatch Bette Midler?

    I didn’t think it could get better than the Blaxit post but this is GOLD. Damn- there are some funny a$$ white folks in Luvv nation. Good stuff. Yes, we will have day passes and at least once a quarter, we’ll have some designated bad dancers to perform so we can have a good laugh. And fo sho on the bland food. We will need that for stomach bugs. And even though I hate it, someone may want a congealed salad. All aboard!!!

    • Heather July 12, 2016, 9:22 pm

      Hold up! I live in Utah, and we are freaking FAMOUS for our jell-o abominations. No state eats more Jello than we do. I submit green jello/carrot salad as evidence. I don’t eat that ish, but I will make it for anyone willing to trade a little dish of collards. I grew up in the South. I still say y’all. I learned to cook there and nobody, NOBODY cooks like the South! This is gonna hurt me more than the Basic Beckys!
      Besides, if you take me with you I’ll bring my Latino husband and he is FINE. I’m willing to negotiate a timeshare in exchange for more collards and one of those keychain sized hot sauces.

      • Stacy July 13, 2016, 5:51 pm

        OMG Heather I’m so mad you pimping out your Latino husband for some collards LOL

  • Nita July 12, 2016, 12:14 pm

    Eminem. We taking him too.

    • Nicole July 12, 2016, 1:30 pm

      Eminem stays. He made a rap saying ‘black girls are bishes.” 😒

      • Van July 12, 2016, 7:46 pm

        “Eminem stays. He made a rap saying ‘black girls are bishes.”

        Just made a similar comment above. Eminem is not going. That’s final. Grab a CD or two to take with you if you must, but his ass stays right here.

      • ViaDaGreat July 14, 2016, 5:37 am

        So do black guys, so Eminem gets a pass for that since he is the best lyricist and he from Detroit… #giveeminemachance 😐 and he calls all women that but that was a former life… I will volunteer to help rehabilitate his view on this. 😉😐

    • abby July 12, 2016, 5:05 pm

      naw. he can stay.

  • Rani July 12, 2016, 12:14 pm

  • Evelyn Polk Green July 12, 2016, 12:15 pm

    Yesterday was hilarious. I cried.

    Now I am REALLY done. Yes, Alden gets to come based on his essay alone. And maybe Kathryn ’cause she figured some ish out!

  • Monica July 12, 2016, 12:17 pm

    This is simply the best. And to all of the white people who participated, we may just have to give you visitation rights. LOL. You are obviously connected humans and not down with the BS that happening in our world. Keep showing up.

  • shannon July 12, 2016, 12:26 pm

    Alden must be given a seat!!!

    • Maxine Shaw, attorney at LOL July 17, 2016, 4:05 am

  • Lea July 12, 2016, 12:26 pm

  • Moe July 12, 2016, 12:42 pm

    Don’t forget that thanks to Mr. George Washington Carver we’re taking peanuts and every single product y’all figured out how to make from his inventions. Oh and since coffee originated in Ethiopia we’re taking that too. And since y’all finally acknowledged Jack Daniels that’s coming too.

  • TeeJay July 12, 2016, 12:49 pm

    We need a few wypeepo… cause Pierogies. Homemade in Bubby’s kitchen???

    I have a question tho. If you are visually of ambiguous ethnicity, what percentage of DNA you gotta have to get a seat?

    • Silverhgma July 12, 2016, 12:50 pm

      I think this is the best time for the one drop rule to apply. What say ye, other council members?

      • Sherród July 12, 2016, 2:13 pm

        100% agree. It worked against us in the past, it will work for us now.

      • shoshana July 22, 2016, 6:56 pm

        Yes! If the one drop rule is in effect, I (probably) get to come! There’s a family rumor that my great-great-grandfather passed. I guess I’d have to get that confirmed, but I will go through any amount of DNA testing to go with you! Please don’t leave me here with nothing but mayonnaise and republicans!

      • Kemsonjkat August 8, 2016, 3:31 pm

        Honestly, it doesn’t matter give the dominate gene thing. E’rybody gonna brown up anyway cuz…literally, fade to black.

  • Silverhgma July 12, 2016, 12:49 pm

    I dont know if it was already mentioned, but they ate aware that we’re taking music with us right? Like, they get no drums, rock and roll, jazz, rap, R&B, OR country (we made that too)

    And we still get Michael Jackson. I know that’s a confusing subject, but we’re not flipping a coin, we get the entire catalog, period….

    • Margofardargo November 20, 2016, 6:31 pm

      Nooooo! Does that mean you’re taking the Beatles music too?

  • Mich July 12, 2016, 12:53 pm


    I want to come too, but I’m Irish and have nothing to offer other than being an entertaining drunk…..

    • Imani July 12, 2016, 1:20 pm

    Will you please leave Leslie Odom, Jr. with us? I swear I’ll take really good care of him! After Blaxit, damn near half the cast of Hamilton will gone. 🙁

    • Z July 12, 2016, 6:39 pm

      No. Sorry tree huggers. You’re stuck here in the freezing-ass North with me. The North Remembers. Now go make yourself useful, and figure out how to find some food when it snows six out of 12 months. We’re going to be hungry and that boiled shit the Brits make isn’t going to cut it.

    We’re doing more than laughing. We’re communing. And we’re healing.

    Luvvie is one of the few people I know who could tread this line and give us a space to belly-laugh when so many of us are grieiving everywhere else in our innernet lives…

      I just discovered this community, this internet oasis, today! Where have I been?

      Thank you all for making me smile from someplace deep inside.
      Thank you, Luvvie!

      I realized that the day Prince died and I spent my time on Luvvie’s FB page, laughing and crying for hours. It was the only way I got through that day. So, yes. There’s something really special about this community.

      PS: Prince talks to me from the Other Side. Surely, that’s worth giving me some room on the #Blaxit Bus, right? I’ll be good. Please take me! #ainttooproudtobeg

      • Saffron July 18, 2016, 11:57 am

        I say this with love, but as a fellow white person, let me just say that talking to Prince from beyond the grave is the whitest thing I’ve read today. I don’t think you get to claim citizenship in the Republic of Noir.

        On the other hand, surely they will have an avenue to legal immigration for us terminally uncool lily-white folks who aren’t assholes. As a Jew, I can’t offer any living athletes, but I can bring nukes, Google, and a bunch of vaccines, so surely that counts for something?

        If not, I may have to resort to tanning beds and clever hair techniques to sneak in like Rachel Dolezal. As long as I keep my mouth shut and never tell anyone my musical tastes, y’all won’t be able to spot me.

        • Kemsonj Kat August 8, 2016, 3:39 pm

          NO, no immigration. We not fallin’ for that ish. Ya’ll started out as British boat people and look what happened. The contention of Native Americans are not having that… NO IMMIGRATION.

I can make great chocolate chip cookies. And can help other people organize their stuff. I enjoy telling white men to shut up and (h/t to W. Kamau Bell) “Stop being white men”. I ain’t too proud to beg… Please don’t leave me with these dumb ass white people, even though as a white person I deserve it.

      Actually since there won’t be anyone to rob us of the natural resources of Blacktopia, steal our culture and reap the financial benefits of them , red line/gentrify and tell us where we cannot live, oppress us economically and attempt to render us financially impotent, create a caste system, limit and/or hinder our education, direct our narrative, and write us out of our own history, I don’t anticipate that happening. But thanks for trying it. Feel free to miss us with the bullish next time tho.

    • Mo Merrell July 13, 2016, 1:49 pm

      Damn, are we taking GRAMMAR too?

      “I’ll stay here, you’re just going to turn the Serengeti into the projects and slums anyways – good riddance to all of you.”

      You could prefer to not use the dash (-) and instead end the sentence with a period (.) to make the last part end on more of a bang but you can also add an and/or to replace the dash (-) as well as a with a semi-colon. However, I’d suggest that you add more context to your statement to give it more power because it lacks in truly capturing the essence of how you really feel. If you scroll down further you’ll see that Caesar effectively captured what he wanted to say regardless of his typos. He added passion and even a tad bit humor.

      In order for us to appropriately accept this insult, I’d suggest that you re-post with corrections and more content. As of now your grade of hate stands at a solid “F”. I didn’t give you an “N” because I felt that your statement – however flawed, sets a tone for a larger and more effective hateful statement Donald.

        Mo Morrell,
        You dragged Donald’s trolling, melanin and humor deficient ass…..just remind him that ‘Your’ is a possessive pronoun indicating ownership as in, “Your ass got blasted on a humor blog for wearing your klan sheets in a racist-free zone”. “You are going to turn…..etc. etc” would have been the grammatically correctly way to phrase your insult. Perhaps he can pass this on to his fellow klansman during his next ‘we hate everybody’ rally.

      Right here people, There he is, finally out of his wormhole. The reason CONDOMS WERE INVENTED, This waste of Oxygen and Chromosomes up here(The Donald is King, Yes you). Send our condolences to the people that have the misfortune of Knowing you. I m sure the day you were born, people thought you were worth the 40 weeks, and now I m pretty positive they wish the condom didn’t break. SWINE!!!

  • Derwin July 12, 2016, 8:37 pm

    We’re taking the drum and the guitar…back to the harp folks.

    Oh and I’m definitely claiming seats posthumously for Red Foxx, Richard Pryor and Dick Gregory (he’s not dead but he is old as hell)

    • Yemaya_Binta Arikpo-Davies July 27, 2016, 9:21 am

      Sorry harp was invented in Ethiopia, that comes too.

    • Kemsonj Kat August 8, 2016, 4:02 pm

      Actually the first harp like instrument comes from Africa so, looks like they’re going to have to dance to rain and thunder… sorry, sorta, kinda. Okay, not sorry.

  • SIPort July 12, 2016, 8:42 pm

    these entire two threads have been ALL THAT.

    I needed both of them – hilarious

  • Janekey July 12, 2016, 8:56 pm

    Where Jane Elliott?

    • Ms QT Pie July 12, 2016, 8:58 pm

      We saved her a seat in the freedom rider section with Harry Belafonte, John Lewis, and Bernie Sanders.

      • Janekey July 13, 2016, 1:12 am

        Good lokking out.

    • Yemaya_Binta Arikpo-Davies July 27, 2016, 9:22 am

      Bring Tim Wise too, they’ll lynch him if we leave him.

  • Janekey July 12, 2016, 8:57 pm

    Oh the whole cast of The Godfather. Maybe not Michelle Pfier tho…

    • Yaqina July 12, 2016, 9:06 pm

      Michelle was in Scarface, not the Godfather trilogy. I think you’re taking about Dianne Keaton, Michael’s ugly assed, prune faced 2nd wife? 😀

      • Janekey July 13, 2016, 1:09 am

        I stand corrected

    • Karen L. Harian July 13, 2016, 12:56 am

      Michelle has to come, she has a Black daughter….Claudia Rose.

      • Janekey July 13, 2016, 1:11 am

        Claudia Rose is ols enough to travel by herself and if not there’s enough grandmas and aunties. Michele can visit on White Day

    • Geneva Girl July 14, 2016, 10:03 pm

      Michelle Pfeiffer can come because she has a black (adopted) daughter. Sandra Bullock needs to come because she needs to mother her black kids.

      • Janekey July 16, 2016, 1:10 am

        Sandra comes because she’s Black

  • Yaqina July 12, 2016, 9:03 pm

    No one has mentioned taking turkey? What kind of people are we? I need smoked turkey wings/legs for cooking greens, fresh turkey parts for baked turkey wings with gravy and rice. Last, but definitely not least, we MUST take turkey bacon!!! I need to take coconut water as well; we leaving that nasty ass Gatorade after all. All nail polish and accessories along with BBQ potato chips/Fritos will be on a separate plane as to not tempt the weed smokers. Can somebody bring the hot Cheetoes too?

    • Nordic Shieldmaiden July 13, 2016, 10:02 am

      Wahaha. Turkey being native to North America stays. As does corn, tomatoes, squash, pumpkin, ..oh hell, just google, “Foods native to North America”. *passes you a tissue, for when you start crying*

      But, talk to your new Republic’s free-trade department, and we can work out some trade routes. *nods*

      • Amber July 13, 2016, 8:42 pm

        Except I understand the Native Americans have signed on and get to take all that stuff with them…

    • Lilian July 13, 2016, 5:56 pm

      My sister, we go to lands where the coconut doth fall from the tree, and thou canst drink the juices therefrom fresh….
      …that should make up for turkey, surely?

  • Caucasian Jeff July 12, 2016, 9:21 pm

    Ok. I get Pita and hummus. In every white persons house.

    • Londa July 12, 2016, 9:42 pm

      Damn, Jeff. Stop making me feel sorry for you! Why am I so freaking sensitive?

      Shoot! Let me go talk with the committee and see if I can get you in on one of the busses. I can’t promise you anything. But, I will speak kindly on your behalf.

    • Nordic Shieldmaiden July 13, 2016, 10:11 am

      Man up! Pita and hummus are from the Middle East, no where near your roots. Use some ingenuity and make dip from Great Northern or Kidney beans. Pair it with Rye bread…and stop whining. Sheesh…

  • Veronica July 12, 2016, 9:37 pm

    We Black, Latinx, and Asian folks are taking chocolate, too. Africa, Asia, and South America are where most of the cocoa beans are grown.

  • Tosha P July 12, 2016, 10:04 pm

    No lie I told this West African lady to take me back to Africa with her, she smiled shyly like yeah right so I grabbed her arm looked in her eyes and said u know I’m not playing right, I been planning my #BLAXIT already yall

  • Sarah July 12, 2016, 10:32 pm

    I hereby submit my application for asylum to the Isle of Noir, along with my tribute:

    Bring me and I’ll bring the beer and the whiskey thanks to my German Irish roots. BEER, PEOPLE! ALCOHOLIC NECTAR OF THE GODS!


    …aaaaaaand now I have to go to the bathroom thinking about seas of beer. BRB.

    And if there are any Black geeks in the room, I’ll bring my sci-fi along too, because clearly it’s an underserved community.

    • Dee Romesburg July 13, 2016, 2:14 pm

      Ooh! Geeks! I’m one of those. I’ll bring all my comic books. And Octavia Butler books.

    • Yemaya_Binta Arikpo-Davies July 27, 2016, 9:27 am

      Sorry we have natural alcohol that is not brewed in any man made refinery. It is called Palm wine, from a palm tree, otherwises know as ‘from God to made’. take a seat (african accent).

    • Kemsonj Kat August 8, 2016, 4:06 pm

      Okay so the first beer, came from Africa, it was made with honey… whiskey was actually a recipe that the Black folks created as they worked for the white men who produced corn hash… read about it… it’s true. Good try though.

  • Crystal July 12, 2016, 10:57 pm

    What about spouses of poc? Can our spouses vouch for us and we can get special visas?

    • Crystal July 12, 2016, 11:05 pm

      Don’t take my husband and babies and leave me behind. I’m willing to be good amd sign in blood to never give white tears or utter the phrase “not all white people.”

      • Ms QT Pie July 13, 2016, 7:38 am

        We may be able to find a seat for you. Please submit your request in writing and forward to the head of the planning committee for final approval.

      • Tessence July 13, 2016, 11:34 pm

        I think the decision should rest with the in-laws of color. If they sign your voucher then you’re set.

  • Marcus July 12, 2016, 11:07 pm

    We’re taking EDM too. That shit was pioneered by black and latino folk. So no more drug-hazed light show festivals for y’all! #SorryNotSorry

  • Nichole July 12, 2016, 11:25 pm

    I’d like to second the motion for all things turkey: I can’t make my Uncle Pop’s dressin’ w/out it.

    As this thread is breathing life into my laughter deprived soul, I’d like to address the issue of all MARVEL AND DC superheroes. Storm and Black Panther are already there but what about Rogue Gambit and Wolverine? Shall we conduct a one drop investigation? Oh and Jews are 2/3 black anyway so Stan Lee has to come. Heads up: Bruce (my hubby) is coming. He raise my children as his own, soooo, yeah.😉

    • Kemsonj Kat August 8, 2016, 4:08 pm

      Turkeys are native to the Americas and technically are from a land of brown/red people sooooooo… no need to argue that they go with us as well.

      • Jadesola August 10, 2016, 5:23 am

        People we have turkey in Africa, especially west Africa in abundance

  • Alli July 12, 2016, 11:30 pm

    Please, please save a seat for me! All the good Jewish stuff is already packed and on the bus, so I can bring whisky, shortbread, men in kilts and chunky knits. Oh, and I can bring Vodka but that’s really all the Russian stuff anyone wants – I’ll leave the borscht and seasonal depression behind, don’t worry.

      • Tylene July 26, 2016, 3:51 am

        I will support your application Meredith if you can cook New York style knishes. But remember you don’t have to be Jewish to love Levy! So we will be taking Judith Craner Protas, posthumously, since she cleverly claimed rye bread thru diversity in advertising. We will be using clever ads to claim all things that go along with rye like mustard, corn beef, pastrami, hot dogs, and yes Knishes! And while we are at it we are taking Cracker Jacks (“Candy-coated popcorn, peanuts and a prize”)

  • Tracy July 13, 2016, 4:39 am

    Okay so…I can get with allowing some Whites the privilege of coming with us, because some of them are “just too cool” however, the bylaws must stipulate that any children born to white women must be fathered by men the shade of Idris or darker! I’m just saying…Let’s keep Onyxland…ONYX.

    Just saying you need women of all colors we created shit like computers and we found out that sex’s were determined by the x and y chromosomes (even though we dont get credit for any of that) and i cant live in a world with all white males and females as a single mother raising a mixed raced baby that shit would be terrible. non racist women of any color are a big asset to ya’lls new world you know you need us we are smart. also i cant believe no one said anything about the fact that a black male doctor was the first person to do open heart surgery but maybe when all the butters are gone there wont be as much of a need for it.

  • Mo Merrell July 13, 2016, 1:01 pm

    By way of celebrities we’re def taking Amy Winehouse from the grave bc an old black woman clearly lives inside of her, Lindsay Lohan (just for entertainment and all movies pre 2007ish) and Bill Clinton for obvious reasons. Hillary gets visits. Chelsea is OUT.

    As far as food we’re taking deviled eggs bc what’s a black cookout without them? We also deserve French fries AND ketchup hands down for our tireless labor as McDonald’s employees until Mexicans took over–matter of fact all condiments except mayo bc white people have no problem eating dry foods, while we need everything covered in gravy or doused in hot sauce to eat it LOL.

  • Lesley July 16, 2016, 7:53 pm

Y’all may have invented or produced all the good things mentioned above and also the quilts of Gees bend, so much folk art, and other beautiful things, but if you blaxit, who will decoupage in your new land, or turn watermelons into carvings, or make lavender wreaths? Think about it. Especially with a blaxit, black women are gonna be busy getting stuff done and managing business.

    Oh God. Please please PLEASE take me. I’m so pale I’m damn near translucent, but my husband and daughters are Native (his Tribe is descended from the Aztecs) so he can make both bomb-ass Mexican food AND bomb-ass Native food (and who doesn’t love frybread?!?) And being Native, he can smudge all your homes to keep the bad spirits away.

    I offer them up as……dowry, because I CANNOT survive in a land surrounded by nothing but knucklefuck, twatwaffle, cuntflaps like that Donald asshole up there.

    For the love of Jeebus, please don’t leave me with the in denial racist pricks.

    If I hear one more fuckwit talk about people “pulling themselves up by the bootstraps” (without acknowledging we’ve created a society in which people can’t even buy the damned boots), or “Do whatever the cop tells you to and you won’t get shot” (without acknowledging that people of color are pulled over simply for BEING people of color, and that cops are supposed to serve and protect, not be judge jury and executioner), or that “white privilege doesn’t exist” (without realizing that denying white privilege exists, IS ITSELF white privilege), or people who love Trump for “telling it like it is” (without realizing, or at least admitting that means they SUPPORT bigotry, racism, classism, ableism, mysogyny, elitism, and every other piece of verbal diarrhea that comes out of his face anus, and OPPOSE women’s right to manage their own sexual/reproductive/health choices, marriage equality, a living wage, an end to climate change, and everything else that normal, compassionate, ethical people support)…I will DIE. I will curl up in the fetal position and give up on living altogether. Because at that point, there will be no point in living anymore.

    I’d like to open the floor to voting on us good white folks creating the neighbor nation of Pastytopia and open dialogue for a travelling and trade agreements. I mean, we have fuck all to trade, but I can do crafty crap. Like, I can decoupage the SHIT out of stuff for ya’ll. We could barter skills, once we figure out what the hell we got to work with.

    Have I mentioned my husband can cook AND smudge evil spirits away? He’s also hot as hell, if that helps.

    As my last and final plea, since my husband is a person of color, and we have sex (gotdamn good sex too, might I add), that means that TECHNICALLY I have some Native in me (at times), and the ONE DROP rule applies (but maybe I’m not not specifying drop of WHAT exactly), so I think I should be allowed in on said technicality!

    Anything? 😞😞😞

      LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOL! You have just killed me with the desperation in your piece. I personally will speak to the committee on your behalf. Just for the fact that you have some Native American in you some of the time.

    What about Joe Biden? He’s Obama’s left hand man, and he’s a good guy. We can’t leave Uncle Joe behind!

    This ENTIRE thread has made me cheeks hurt , my stomach cramps and my eyes run as I have LAUGHED OUT LOUD when I should be studying! Thank u for this !

    My two cents:
    Eminem AND Marshall Mathers stay,
    as do Tiger’s caublinasian ass, Bow wow’s mixed ass, and Raven Symone’s discriminatory against creative names ass.

    To all Jewish applicants:
    Mizrachim, get a pass given they are Black from jump, traveled with the Moors and generally got along with everyone.
    As for all other are Sephardics, and Ashkenazics, after long deliberation it has been decided that in order to travel your Noodle Kugel, Challah bread, Knishes, Sufganiyot, Latkes, Brisket and cheesecake game must be strong. Please submit your applications along with product to me before Chanukah (since you’ll have all the ingredients for every thing) and we’ll get back to you right after Kwanzaa. (PS… I grew up next to Skokie Illinois so my Jewish food skillz are strong..don’t even attempt to open a box Krusteaz… I’ll know!)

    ummmm, I heard there was going to be a White Day? Will the stores be open? Do y’all take cash? How big of a bag can I fill on White Day?

    Apples are from the caucuses. That should be a nice relief. (without cinnamon?!)

    Also willing to be laughed at as I try to dance, play sports, or use twitter.

    Addendum: We are leaving behind Trevor Noah, Russell Simmons, Cam Newton’s fine self :(, The Mother Formerly Known as Oprah, 99% of Anthony Mackie (his gap gets a pass).
