To say something to these family members on FB?

I have a few family members on FB who insist on sharing things from 'Britain First' and 'British and Proud' pages. Stuff like sharing posts about immigration and shutting the doors of Britain and so on.

I, as an immigrant myself (albeit a white, british 'appearing' one) find this sort of shit supremely offensive. Wibu to mention this on FB and hopefully make them realise that they are lumping their own family and potentially many other people they may know and like in RL with these so called. 'Immigrant scum'?

Just block pages you don't like (BF etc) and then you wont get it on your news feed

I don't think you'd be unreasonable at all and wish I'd been brave enough to say this to some people TBH! I've just unfriended people for sharing Britain first crap so I have to look at that drivel on my feed!
I hate prejudice with a passion and especially people who share utter crap on social media when most of it is completely fabricated.

I have fallen out with people for sharing this hate promoting crap because I challenged them about it. I don't seem to have any any more!
You could just share this :

Well done for wanting to call them out on their views rather than just blocking them.

Maybe post about the contribution by immigrants? How the NHS would be on its knees without nurses from abroad?

Are u related to me? This crap really pisses me off.....

Aaaarrrgg it just winds me up so much! I hate it when it's about random 'immigrants' and I have unfriended random friends and acquaintances who have shared similar shit but these people are my own fucking family! What do they want? People like me and my mom to be deported? I feel like they forget I'm not British because I've lived here so long I have the right accent and they can pretend I am British. It really fucks me off though because they don't realise that when they say this kind of stuff, whether they mean it to or not, they are insulting me and others like me who just moved here for a better life and work hard to achieve it.

WTF is wrong with people?! Do they not realise we are ALL fucking immigrants in the UK? Hmm

Anyone who blames the woes of the UK on 'immigrants' is an ignorant tit. Hmm

I would not even say anything to them OP. Just unfriend. And block.

Your not being unreasonable, but honestly, you will never be able to have a sensible conversation with these people - they are so blinkered and ignorant.

just delete them.

I always challenge things when they are connected with Britain First, particularly when they use the military to get people's emotions going. Many in the military are horrified about being connected. People need to be educated.

What about if you posted a polite comment to say that the offending post makes you feel upset and explain why? Do it in a nice way. You never know, it might make them think twice about posting that stuff again.
