Term coined by Will Pharrell during an Oprah interview. Mostly used in online communities, like Tumblr. New Black meaning, black people who do not believe in racism and/or do not blame white people for racism, don't hold racism accountable for any troubles in their lives.

Many jokes about New Blacks include comparing them to upper-class white people.

The title of the popular Lionsgate/Netflix television show "Orange is the New Black" was humorously adapted in November 2016 following the U. S. Presidential election of Donald Trump, to indicate that Trump (known for his orange-colored skin) would be replacing President Barack Obama (who is black).

Get the Orange is the new black mug.
A Netflix Original series that kicked off in 2013. Season 2 started June 6th at 3am. (I'm watching it now. Js)
Ok so, it's about a woman named Piper Chapman who's in her 30s and is sentenced to 15 months for transporting money for her drug-dealing girlfriend (over a decade ago). While in prison she reconnects with her ex-girlfriend even though she is engaged to Larry. Obviously, she has problems in prison because let's face it, it's fucking prison.

It's actually a really good series, so check it out.

A Netflix original series, and a pretty good one at that. It's funny, but definitely way more lesbian sex than I bargained for.

If you're straight, you'll find yourself drooling over the few men that are actually on the show, like the cop John Bennett, or the main character's fiancé, Larry Bloom. Neither if whom is even that attractive....

Plus with all of the slang they use on the show, you find that you end up using Urban Dictionary way more than usual if you're as slang-illiterate as I am.
"Hey have you seen that new show Orange Is The New Black on Netflix?"

"Yeah. It's pretty funny. Have you?"

"Nah. I'm already subscribed to Lesbian Porn Weekly, so I'm good."
