Oh OK You are biracial. It's not racist to call you that, it's the truth. It is important not to erase white people. No I am black just like you. White people see me as black because they defined my blackness and not black people. What you're doing is dividing us and You are biracial. It's not racist to call you that, it's the truth. It is important not to erase black people. that's c--- behavior. Black men that like me see me as black so why can't you? It's probably because your jealous of my curly hair and things you'll never have being mixed like me.

On November 22nd, 2020, @AfroAmi[2] made a tweet in which she revealed that she was the creator of the Black Girl Wojak, with the tweet gaining over 1,100 retweets and 6,400 likes (shown below, left).

"yassss miss mama gurl purrrr chilly work hunty period sis" 63 swag i'm a glo girl i luv sosa!!! Swag i'm so swag swag w-- swag Sure! wanna be sad together?
do you like yes deftones? XX I spent an hour on my hair today! It took forever! My arms hurt so bad from the brushing. Omg that must've been so annoying! Idk if I could have the patience for that. 000 I spent 8 hours braiding my hair. I know. We may have our roots in the original wojak design, but all our components are new. I bear a clear resemblance to the original 2010 "feels guy," but we lack any actual parts in common. Are we a variation on the What do Are we wojaks? you mean? original wojak the same way as, say, the doomer, or are we our own thing entirely? I would argue that we are, yes. It's effectively a Ship of Theseus problem - if you change out all the parts to a ship, is it the same ship or a different one. I follow the same conclusion as John Locke- we are linked to our past selves through memory, not body, which is constantly changing. Our memory and mental lives our what make us what we are, and what we are is wojaks. Dalidy I disagree, in terms of the Ship of Theseus model. As parts are switched out, they lose their identity. The ship is defined by its physical connection to and contact with Theseus, and when you swap out parts it ceases to become Theseus's ship in the same way you wouldn't call a bed Theseus's bed simply because it was in his room, had he never slept in it. Wojaks are defined by their connection to the original feels guy, one that we lack any sign of. The doomer is just a wojak with a hat, for example- I'm not even based off the original design! While we have a sort of connection by proxy, we're too distinct from wojaks to be one of them.
