Black women of all ages shined bright all over social media this weekend for the #BlackOutDay hashtag!

After the 2015 Black Girls Rock ceremony, we’re all feeling super confident and fab. But to reinforce the dose of positive self-image, Black people spent all weekend posting glorious shots of themselves and the people they love to show the world why being Black is pretty awesome.

Some people obviously couldn’t handle all of the appreciation that Black people were showing themselves…

But that didn’t keep anyone from shading anyone who couldn’t take the selfie love. Some addressed the ignorance with a little sass.
