And then compared it to the blm protests.

I am typically "over sesnitive" but there is not way this isn't racist is it?

I'm starting to fear friend shares these views but secretly.

Aibu or is that a racist pic?

Racist

Cadent Sat 06-Jun-20 23:04:41

What a twat. I would screenshot and send to his employers. Cunt.

You're 'starting' to fear your friend is racist?! I'd think you were racist if you didn't think this was racist.

Wow I would say openly and overtly racist OP ... Don't judge your friend silently though, they may be outraged too and if they aren't then challenge them.

Frozenfan2019 Sat 06-Jun-20 23:06:44

shock please please act on this. Comment, report to Facebook and screenshot and forward to employers and others.

This is so awful

JigglypuffsCaptor Sat 06-Jun-20 23:06:46

shock no. That's horrifically racist!

Porpoises Sat 06-Jun-20 23:07:14

Yes, it's racist. And calling people "oversensitive" is the typical defense of twats everywhere.

borntohula Sat 06-Jun-20 23:07:47

It's so shit when you point out blatant racism on SM and get told you're oversensitive or it gets passed off as a joke. It's clearly racist. I really don't miss FB.

Patriciathestripper1 Sat 06-Jun-20 23:07:59

Yes i would say it is racist

SuncreamInTheWinter Sat 06-Jun-20 23:08:25

@BIWI wasn't friend that posted it was her Dad. But she has in the past said little comments about "too pc these days" etc.

Her dad imo is a racist wanker.

But I'm strongly starting to worry she is too. I've only just discovered his page and feel sick at some of the things he is posting about covid etc and now this is even worse.

Completely racist. Please report, and reconsider your friendship.

BIWI
To be fair I think the OP is saying that her friend might be racist as her dad is.
It was not the friend who posted the picture.

Smileyaxolotl1 Sat 06-Jun-20 23:10:38

Yanbu - I don’t see any room for doubt on this one.

So are you going to send it to his employers OP? Or challenge h on FB?

Please report to fb. Then block both. No one needs people like this in their lives.

However I don’t think you should necessarily write off your friend.
You can’t choose your relatives...

Porpoises Sat 06-Jun-20 23:17:13

Report the post to Facebook. It's specifically banned in their community standards on hate speech:

"...dehumanising comparisons, generalisations or behavioural statements (in written or visual form) that include:
Black people and apes or ape-like creatures"

And point out to him that this is the case.

Carycy Sat 06-Jun-20 23:17:22

You can’t blame the sin of the parents on their children. Each generation learns and brings new things to the table. It would be grossly unfair to put blame on your friend for this.

UnhappyMondays Sat 06-Jun-20 23:17:52

Absolutely revolting - does your friend like/comment/agree? If she’s rightfully also disgusted then that will be the acid test.

But generally- anyone that speaks like that is definitely a pathetic, narrow minded and unintelligent and racist specimen.

Perhaps message your friend and see what she thinks of the post.
Then you will have your answer on whether she is racist or not.

Sparklesocks Sat 06-Jun-20 23:18:48

Racist and abhorrent

AtrociousCircumstance Sat 06-Jun-20 23:20:54

Report it. And also call him out.

The repulsive, crushingly pathetic, dangerous stupidity of racism like this makes me want to puke.
