says 'Blue eyed people are kind and blah blah blah'.

Although I just saw one that says 'Brown eyes people are............all things wonderful'

OK, I am green eyed, and haven't seen one about me yet!! wink

But it really does make me think of the Nazis every time I see a generalisation post like this.

I can see your point (as a green eyed Jew!) but it is taking it too far in a way. They aren't saying the other is bad, just that this is good. However, I've on,t had posts which said 'people with green eyes are like x, brown eyes are like y, blue eyes like z etc;' with all good things, which I'm hmm

Actually, Nazis were only around for a year before they adopted the swastika.

I'll stick around, I think, because I'm intrigued as to how sharing vacuous blether on facebook is just one step away from killing millions of people. Do you know anyone who has gone down this particular road?

I'd just think anyone who makes personality/character judgements based on eye colour is a bit stupid.

What Mimishimi said.

Oh come on, there really isn't a thin line between thinking someone with a particular characteristic is inferior, and actually killing them! I'd say that line is pretty damn wide actually.

Are there grown-ups that play 'ip dip sky blue' to see who's 'it' as well?

Mama I missed a word out. Bio dads family* oops blush Only adopted by step father.

Its just something passed around FB. No harm done. Just like those mental

Share if you hate abuse

Ignore if you beat aunts with shoes

Or some other shite. grin

SE I thought it was 'ip dip dog shit' grin

OP I am Jewish, and no, there are far more things in the world today that remind me of the Nazis rather than a puerile facebook post hmm

Nah.

I bet there's one for green or brown eyed folk kicking around.

They are twattish though I'll give you that.

I was thinking about this the other day, I can't decide if they're just silly or an issue.

If there was one saying 'people with white skin are ...' would it be an issue? If so why is it on to judge on some physical attributes but not on others?

Although it has never made me think of Nazis!

My eyes are greeney brown like a reptile. grin

One of my eyes is split into two colours, one half brown and one half blue.

So that makes me me "kind and blah and all things wonderful" according Facebook as quoted in the OP then?

I think I win grin

Seriously, it's a bit of a daft thing going about on Facebook but I don't think it's intended badly or has much meaning to it, any more so than if they had used star-signs or birth months or the colour of the car you drive.
