As everybody knows, if you make a sign with your hands with your pinky, ring finger and middle finger outstretched, making a W, and your index and thumb making a circle, making the head of a P, you are a racist. The intials stand for “White Power”.

The XYZ is deeply committed to keeping Facebook a safe environment for all Facebook users. As such, we sent Facebook a message:
We recently created a backup page to our page XYZ. The backup is called XYZ mk.II. As it is a new page, we receive helpful hints regarding how to promote and improve our page.
One of these hints features a hand with three fingers outstreched, while the index and thumb make a circle.

We understand that Facebook is very keen to stamp out racism on its platform. We hope this suggestion ensures that this racist image will not appear on our page again.
Facebook has not responded specifically to this query.
