Black Twitter was back at it again with the brilliant shenanigans–this time, flipping racist ‘DEI’ dog whistle into a hilarious meme wave that drowned out an onslaught of racism aimed at Baltimore’s duly-elected Black Mayor Brandon Scott.

In the latest racist attack on a Black politician, right-wing bigots scampered to blame Baltimore’s tragic Francis Scott Key bridge collapse on its ‘DEI Mayor’ in their latest pathetic attempt to vilify policies aimed at diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI).

As classy as he is qualified, Mayor Scott responded to the racist attacks in a now-viral interview with MSNBC’s Joy Reid.

“Listen, I know and we all know and you know very well that Black men and young Black men in particular have been the boogeyman for those who are racist and think that only straight wealthy white men should have a say in anything,” said Scott who won his election with 70% of the vote.

“What they mean by DEI, in my opinion, is duly elected incumbent. We know what they want to say but they don’t have the courage to say the N-word.”

Naturally, Black Twitter assembled like Voltron to support Mayor Scott and reclaim the latest racist slur by replacing the n-word with DEI.

What happened next was another reminder of Black Twitter’s brilliance in the face of blatant racism, cowardly bigotry, and pervasive misinformation that continues to slither into every corner of the internet.
