I think, unless I am missing some sort of joke???

It is a cartoon of two (I think) chinese men holding WII controllers standing next to a WII, and someone dressed in a white cape with a white pointy hat (KKK?) hoding a gun saying "you wanna play huh?".

Before I comment,report and delete from my friends I want to know am I over reacting? I have no idea what else the cartoon could be about, other than being really racist.

Is it really racist? Can you explain why?

Is it not a pop at the KKK?

comment, report and delete.

The KKK guy is holding a gun saying to the two chinese players "so you wanna play huh"

By marriage, he's DHs cousin. I have never met him but he was suggested as a friend on FB so I added, then enlarged his profile picture because I thought I must be seeing it wrong... but obviously not.

at least you've never met him. could have been awkward if he was someone you'd see all the time.

show dh?

dh recently revealed to me that his cousin used to be in the NF. thankfully i've never met him, and he lives in australia get away from all these immigratant..natch.

Post on his wall? Just say 'what's with the profile pic?' in case there is some explanation (?)

I posted "sorry, do you realise this picture is really racist?" and deleted him. DH says he is probably too dim to realise, but it seems pretty blatant to me.

If its a joke I dont get it?

Ok - is it a joke about the Wii?
I would want to check this first. I don't understand it the way you have described it, at least not as a joke, but maybe there's some context to it.

It could be that it is totally racist, I think I would want to make sure I understood the context before doing anything.
