About

Nordic / Mediterranean refers to a series of memes in which various races, sub-races, and nationalities, primarily Nordic and Mediterranean, are compared to each other through use of archetypal exploitable images. Said images are often captioned within a Learn The Difference, It Could Save Your Life style format. The trend gained popularity on /pol/ and other 4chan boards in late 2016, with a sub-meme known as Yes Chad / Nordic Gamer spinning off in early August 2019, with the format developing into the Wojak comics meme archetype in 2020.
