From now on, we'll be bringing you, our beloved Blavity Fam, some of the week's greatest social media moments every Friday. Without further ado, let's look back at a wild week.Cue the Cardi B and Nicki fight. The New York Fashion Week showdown between two of hip-hop's greatest talents inspired thousands of memes and hilarious tweets. However, one in particular takes the cake:The internet is undefeated. pic.twitter.com/o7z5UgO8lt— . (@CAWBBBB) September 9, 2018This week was back-to-school time for a lot of families, and we have to give a special shout-out to this sister for not only telling our black history like it is, but for refusing to back down when folks tried to whitewash it.The board display I put up outside my office made some teachers “uncomfortable”. They didn’t like “they” and I was asked to change it, re-word it so these teachers won’t feel uncomfortable. Not surprised. Also not changing it. Our history makes “them” uncomfortable? #huh

Twitter can turn anything into a meme.If you grew up in the 2000s, you might have watched Cartoon Network's Ed, Edd n Eddy. The show featured a character named Rolf, who was an immigrant from “the old country” who ran with the Eds and wasn’t afraid to call out white foolishness.A picture of the character as a young black man gazing out of a window hit the internet, and everyone has been acting a fool, creating endless memes riffing on the image, Complex reports.According to BuzzFeed, artist Elijah Rutland is responsible for the first black Rolf meme:People really out here thinking that I make free art.... pic.twitter.com/taX89jSLNH— Elijah Rutland (@fixmysole) September 5, 2018Rutland has a history of race-bending cartoon characters from a variety of shows, including Adventure Time and Dragon Ball Z, but Rolf is his first viral sensation. “The next thing I knew, people were sharing it and editing it with new skin tones, hairstyles and captions, so all of this is new to me because I’ve never had anything that has gone viral before," Rutland said.

Nike's new ad celebrating the 30th anniversary of its #JustDoIt campaign shook the table with the announcement Colin Kaepernick would be the campaign's face. From bigoted haters slashing their Nikes to fans vowing to increase their Nike collections, everyone had something to say about the shoe company's decision. Like any zeitgeist-grabbing event, Twitter took things to the next level with jokes and parodies that kept the entertainment going. We all know Twitter knows how to take just about anything and transform it into a memorable meme.We love it when two different memes are married, and the combination of the Kaep parodies and the Terrence Howard "mayne" meme is a postmodern masterpiece:
Ok. Why can’t y’all just.... 😩 #hustleandflow

Ninth graders at a high school in Pine Bluff, Arkansas, may have found their new favorite teacher in Rebecca Newby.According to BuzzFeed, Newby teaches English, pre-AP English and creative writing. Like most teachers, Newby was required to buy items for her classroom to get ready for the new school year.Instead of buying boring hall passes from her local teacher supply store, Newby decided to make hers, incorporating everyone's favorite regular degular schmegular Bronx rapper. The passes feature the now iconic "My Momma Said" meme photo of Cardi B along with captions like, "Ms. Newby said I can go to the restroom" and "Ms. Newby said I can go to the nurse." "My students love Cardi B, and so do I, by the way," Newby said. Brilliance!Newby got creative in part to save money; she merely glued the photos and captions onto cardboard and laminated them. We stan a resourceful queen. And we aren't the only ones; Newby's efforts went viral on Twitter:New teachers of the new Generation love it https://t.co/trlquMQEfV— El jefe (@dbaide___) August 13, 2018Millennial educators are MVP https://t.co/trlquMz3on— El jefe (@dbaide___) August 14, 2018i’m jealous of people who get to be in school during the twitter/meme era. i would have been the funniest bitch at my school https://t.co/3Ld61EBTma— judgmental gay (@jdgmntlgay) August 13, 2018Of course, the hall passes were a hit with the students and Newby's fellow teachers alike.

Terrence Howard's performance in Hustle & Flow scored him an Academy Award nomination, but that wasn't the true legacy left by his performance in the film. The way Howard pronounced "man" became a national treasure. If you saw that film, you know "man" is best pronounced "mayne."Because Twitter doesn't have any sense (and we love it), Howard's pronunciation of the word has become fodder for countless memes. Summer is all about the superhero flicks, and thanks to the upcoming DC film Aquaman, it was only a matter of time before the guardian of Atlantis had his name remixed with a little Terrence Howard flair courtesy of Twitter user Mister Morris: Aquamayne pic.twitter.com/IcopF0bTQE— 8th Wonder (@FikaFiasco) July 23, 2018BRUH.

John Legend and Chrissy Teigen are always at their best when they tag-team on social media. They've even managed to get some coins for their social media skills with a new Google Duo partnership. Their banter is the most entertaining part of their social media accounts, especially Chrissy's insistence on trolling John for his resemblance to the cartoon character Arthur. She recently posted a pic on Instagram of their daughter, Luna and ... her daddy.

Maybe I’ve been attracted to Arthur my whole life and now I found my real life human one,” Chrissy later commented on the same post, according to the Huffington Post. Legend simply responded with, "Wow."Oh, but Chrissy wasn't done! A few days later, Chrissy posted a John Legend-remixed Arthur logo, and it was brilliant.
And I say hey HEY what a wonderful kind of day. Where we can learn to laugh and play. And get along with each other. You’ve got to listen to your heart, listen to the beat, listen to the rhythm, the rhythm of the street. RP @deenallydesigns

Romance.Proving that she can laugh at herself the same way she laughs at her husband, the Cravings cookbook author and model also posted a meme of herself as the “legs go all the way up” girl from Family Guy.

The internet has an inability to chill, and the team has become a meme. A few black 90s kids pointed out the similarities between the team's dance and the Dru Hill "Tell Me" step.Dru Hill used to have me dying how they were jumping like this in the video... looking like they on pogo sticks. 😂🤣😆 pic.twitter.com/uShJCjD9DS— MELLY MEL🏀🙏🏿 (@MelvinDunksOnYa) June 25, 2018Senegal done incorporated the Dru Hill hop into their training routine so naturally I gotta root for them. I’m Senegalese-Baltimorean from this day forward. 🇸🇳🦀🇸🇳🦀 https://t.co/pRgV6tQ1aJ— Lawrence Burney (@TrueLaurels) June 24, 2018I thought they was dancing to “Tell me” by Dru hill... somebody out tell me to this video. https://t.co/JrISOvjGCi— Niree (@Gmobeats) June 25, 2018I'd really appreciate if someone can't put Dru Hill's Tell Me over this. That is what this clip truly deserves. #BlackTwitter, please and thanks! https://t.co/4H93zEzufr— TJ (@taliacadet) June 25, 2018 It was only a matter of time before this happened:I Had to do it 😂😂😂😂 shouts #Senegal

Someone kept the 90s theme going with the Ducktales theme song.The Senegal warm-up is even better with Ducktales music. pic.twitter.com/4VvyxeyOC4— Kristian (@vonstrenginho) June 25, 2018 Another person added the Footloose theme.

Black Panther showed up in Avengers: Infinity War, and though his appearance was a bit brief, it doesn't mean his impact was not felt.One of the popular moments of the film is when Bruce Banner bowed before the royal family of Wakanda, prompting T'Challa to let him know, "We don't do that here." Because Twitter is a seedbed for comedy, the scene birthed some hilarious memes.When someone from Facebook joins Twitter and starts Liking all the Tweets pic.twitter.com/vNyQy9YOtb— Vaibhav...

Thank goodness for memes. We're living in tough times right now, and it is nice to escape those moments for a spell of joy. Because Black Twitter is made up of the world's greatest detectives, we've been learning the original sources of many memes which have gone viral.The source for one of these memes, an African man is expressing his extreme excitement to his woman friend (dubbed the "OMG Wow" meme) was just revealed.Here it is in action:Listening to someone pitch a bad idea but you gotta play it cool because of politics https://t.co/u8ffaqmpHO— Matthew A.

Enjoy 😅😅😆 pic.twitter.com/Ru3O70JyXs— Ragnar® (@dannnygh) March 20, 2018The meme comes from a scene in 2012 Ghanaian film, Azonto Ghost, according to OkayAfrica. The film stars Lil Wayne (not to be confused with the American rapper of the same name), Bill Asamoah and Benedicta Gafah and comes from AA Productions.Director, producer and screenwriter Scilla Owusu gave some context of the film's now-popular scene as well as confirmed that the film is in Twi, a major language in Ghana."The woman is pregnant, but she was too shy to tell her husband. The husband finally convinces her to tell him what news she was hiding from him," noted Owusu. "She then lets him know she's 3 months pregnant. He's so happy and gives thanks to the Lord and is very relieved to hear the great news."There's only one appropriate way to react to this...
