After the actions in Baltimore, a new meme surfaced the web saying, "Baltimore, eat a Snicker's; you turn into Ferguson when you're hungry. The person that made probably had no intentions of being racist. Though there are people out there that think it's racist, many people don't actually know what the term "racism" actually means.

Yeah this isn't racist, lol. If it said "Baltimore, eat a Snicker's; you turn into black people when you're hungry," then that would be racist. But it didn't address ethnicity at all.
