Facebook Refuses To Remove Racist “Black Baby As Monkey” Post

Not sure if you logged onto Facebook and seen this offensive picture?, a Black monkey and a White baby, with the caption, “Stop Racism: Black Children and White Children are the Same,” reports Clutch Magazine.

The photo, which appears on the page “Laughing so hard you feel a six pack coming on” posted the above photo, has caused a maelstrom of controversy, leading to a petition being created on Change.org demanding that Facebook remove the offensive image.

When FB users reported the image as offensive, they received the following message:

To date, the photo has 335 comments, 2,958 ‘Likes,’ and 237 shares.

Facebook has a policy implemented not to allow hate speech on the forum — apparently, portraying Black children as monkeys does not qualify.

Gumbumpers, what do you think about this, should facebook take it down?
