New Microaggression Alert: Frolicking in the Rain is Now Racist

'When we say it’s racist, it’s racist...'

(Molly Bruns, Headline USA) After posting a video of herself enjoying a summer rain, actress Drew Barrymore was skewered by social media users who claimed her post was “appropriation.”

TikTok user @amushroomblackly chastized Barrymore for the clip, calling her a “colonizer,” reported the Daily Wire.

The TikTok user did not clearly explain what specifically made Barrymore’s post racist, and instead spouted clichéd platitudes from the doctrine of critical race theory that mean nothing.

“You’ve just cosigned at least 3 million people who just go out of their way to disrespect and dismiss the boundaries that black creators have set,” she said. “I guess my question would be ‘why… is it so important to all of you to treat us like we don’t matter?'”

Predictably, many people were confused by this and took to Twitter to speculate what she meant.

Some reports state that black women would not frolic in the rain for fear of ruining their hair, so Barrymore was expressing white privilege in that respect.

Another theory is that Barrymore is apparently co-opting a trend called “black men frolicking.”

Apparently the online trend of taking a walk in the falling rain was started by a black person in May, and became an immutable object of black culture.

After receiving confused responses, @amushroomblackly released another video, insisting on Barrymore’s racisim.

“When we say it’s racist, it’s racist,” she said.

Another user mentioned that anyone who considers themselves an “ally” should consider black people when making videos like these.

“If you’re a good ally, you know when to take a step back and re-evaluate your choices. And stop,” he said. “Let black people experience black joy with each other for once.”

The website World News Daily recently published a compendium of 99 things, most of them utterly absurd, that have been declared racist in recent years.
