Fictional Character “Daquan” Fuels Racially Charged Memes [Photos]

 

If you’re anything like this writer, the sheer wonderment of why a name as racially specific as “Daquan” was trending on Twitter was enough to look into the latest meme craze. What followed was something more ridiculous than anyone could imagine.

Depending on your stance, Daquan could be the protagonist or antagonist of these fictional scenarios. But the story ends a similar way each time. Timelines were full of pictures of distraught white mothers, fathers, and husbands appalled by the thought of their loved one being caught in Daquan’s web of deceit.

The trend resulted in mounds of comedic, but extremely insensitive tweets. Laugh at your own risk in the gallery after the jump. Share your thoughts in the comments.

    Smh. This is just another “the big bad black man corrupting our precious white girls” stereotype. Some people need to wake up. Everything is not just harmless fun. Where are the memes with black men being uplifted. Oh, I know. I’m being too serious and need to chill out.

    • Augustine

      check out the successful black man meme. And there are also white boys in these Daquan memes. Do you feel the same way about the Bad Luck Brian meme (clearly making fun of white guys), Scumbag Steve (making fun of white guys), or the mexican man meme?

    • JayFlex

      Oh you mean the one where any black man that is in a good school or has a good job got there only because of Affirmative Action and at the expense of a more qualified white candidate ?

  • Augustine

    People need to stop being hyper sensitive. It’s a joke. There are memes out there that make fun of every race. When my friends (black, white, asian, or any other race) on FB or twitter post either memes or jokes that make fun of my race (mexican) I don’t get mad and unfriend them, I like the post or retweet it if it’s funny enough. Learn to laugh at yourself or you’re going to be a bitter person.

      Except Asians whites and Latinos are doing okay. And they don’t all get stereotyped based on one. Get it together black people

      • ItMustBeJelly

        I’m black and I’m doing just fine thank you. How you doin?

  • yasmeen

    Um this is just dumb, I was waiting to laugh

  • Honesty90

    The irony is that this actually making fun of white girls .
