Since the beginning of time, people have embraced comedy (whether in films, shows, or books) to relieve themselves of challenging moments in history (like the 2020 election) or navigating life's obstacles.


As election fatigue occurs due to the overwhelming amount of information on the news, Instagram accounts dedicated to memes, and satirical Twitter personalities that poke at the nuances of politics have grown in popularity by the day.

As my friends and I share and tag each other in funny memes on Instagram and seeing what my Twitter friends share daily has not only been necessary— it's a creative and light-hearted approach to the rugged nature and reality of the U.S.

Similarly, in Southern Pennsylvania, books by people of color were banned (or per the official Central York School statement: “frozen” for an entire year.)
