Take down the Aboriginal meme generator


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.

Take down the Aboriginal meme generator

Memegenerator.net is the birthplace of the racist and hateful Aboriginal memes which have been popping up all over Facebook.

These memes pick on serious issues such as Aboriginal health, social status, substance abuse and lifestyle, strongly encouraging hatred toward Indigenous Australians.

As a society, Australians will not tolerate racism and hatred towards any ethnic group, including Indigenous Australians. We stand in solidarity and demand that any material or publication which promotes racism and hatred toward Aboriginal people be instantly removed, including the Aboriginal meme generator, which has been used to create racist images.
