Remove racist definitions of Aboriginal from Urban Dictionary

This petition made change with 8,891 supporters!


A social media stir had erupted recently as people were made aware that all of the most popular definitions for Aboriginal people on Urban Dictionary were extremely racist and dehumanising. These negative stereotypes of Aboriginal people, and their continued acceptance by a major global site like Urban Dictionary, contribute to the racism and discrimination experienced every day by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.

It is not possible to flag the most popular definitions on Urban Dictionary as problematic, so we are petitioning the owners of the site to remove these hurtful and dangerous entries.
