    Think before you plank, kids! Rapper Xzibit posted on Twitter about his disapproval of recent planking trend, which celebs like Justin Bieber and Katy Perry have been photographed doing. The rapper took a moment to let his followers and plankers know that they are perpetrating a trend with racist origins. He took the time to educate people that they may be embarking on racist behavior, be it unwittingly or unknowingly.

    The rapper/actor posted the following tweet about the trend: "Planking is THE dumbest shit ever. #Planking was a way to transport slaves on ships during the slave trade, its not funny. Educate."

    What do you think of planking? Have you ever done it? Do you get Xzibit's point about the trend? Are you educating yourself about it?
