Take down the Aboriginal meme generator

    2. Petition by

      Gembrook, Australia

Memegenerator.net is the birthplace of the racist and hateful Aboriginal memes which have been popping up all over Facebook. Users create text which is super-imposed over an image of an Aboriginal man's face. These memes pick on serious issues such as Aboriginal health, social status, substance abuse and lifestyle, strongly encouraging hatred toward Indigenous Australians.

Facebook has so far ignored public outcry calling for pages spreading these memes to be shut down. They need to be shut off at their source - Memegenerator.net - as well as continuing to petition Facebook to take down existing memes.

Please sign this petition and show Memegenerator.net that we do not tolerate racism and hate speech in our society.

      Whoever is behind the racist memes has started pumping out dozens more, becoming more and more hateful, if that were possible. These guys need to be stopped. With enough public outcry, something will have to be done to shut down the meme generator and track down the people responsible. Already there's been a great response to the outcry against Facebook's tolerance of the meme pages, let's continue that work here! Remember to share this petition with your friends and social networks.

      Racism is something that really should not occur in today's society, yet we have things like this constantly appearing.

      This is of low intelligence to do that. Aboriginal are people of Australia as any who lives there. Start respect every livings please. Don't encourage hate and stupidity.

      It horrifies me that some humans feel a sense of superiority over others, If everything we ever owned was stripped from us, you only have the person you are left. This is important to me, because nobody should be made to feel any less of a human than another. Nothing divides us, but ignorance.
