Black Twitter wins Kentucky Derby with #BlackDerbyHorseNames

Move over, Nyquist.

Internet Culture

Black Twitter is one of the smartest and funniest entities on the Internet. Whether these tweeters are roasting relatives during the holidays or grilling Raven-Symoné, it’s all A+ content. This time they’re totally killing it with #BlackDerbyHorseNames

Nyquist might have come in first place at the 142nd Kentucky Derby, but Black Twitter won the event with its hilarious hashtag. Derby horse names have always been a bit ridiculous (others from this race include Danzing Candy and Captain Bodgit), so here’s the denizens of the Internet skewering those with well-known sayings and relevant pop culture in the Black community.
