The internet has erupted with a new hashtag “dedicated” the black girls and women. The problem is that it is incredibly racist and offensive.

#StopBlackGirls2013 polluted Twitter this week with various photos comparing black women to anything from gorillas to farm animals.

From Hello Beautiful:

 Black girls weren’t the only victims of this racist hashtag as others targeting Mexican girls, Indian girls and more popped up during the frenzy, but it was the #StopBlackGirls2013 hashtag that had the longer shelf life.At first, it skyrocketed to the number five trending topic and within 20 minutes, it was second.
