These racist ads that target Palestinian children and portray palestenian children  as evil have appeared all over San Francisco. I have gone to SFMTA MUNI'S Twitter page to let them know how offensive this ad is. Their response was: "We apologize if people are offended by these ads, but they fall within free speech protection under the 1st Amendment." I have gone to their regulations section on their website which states they are not allowed to post anything with visible firearms or obscene propaganda. I would also like whoever replied to my concern via the SFMTA Twitter page to come forth and apologize for their very bias response and not  giving a solution to our concerns. We shall stand in solidarity as a community. STOP RACIST AND BIAS PROPGANDA ON MUNI! PLEASE HELP TO REMOVE THESE ADS. I have bolded the areas in their regulations via their SFMTA AD'S REGULATIONS. I've also attached the link to their advertising regulations.
