Facebook Refuses To Remove Racist “Black Baby As Monkey” PostIn “Racism in Social Media” news, Facebook has refused to remove a picture of 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,” 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:

Screen shot 2013-02-06 at 1.31.07 PM

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.
