Maria Julia Coutinho

A Brazilian group with deep pockets is giving Facebook and Twitter racists a taste of their own medicine. The unknown philanthropists are getting back at racists by posting their Facebook comments on Billboards near their homes.

According to Yahoo Finance, the campaign, "Virtual racism, real consequences," uses the location tags from social media posts to find the location where the racists live. The group then buys billboards in the racist's general neighborhood.

The group's goal is to force bigots to face their own prejudice and hate.

In one billboard, the group posted a tweet that roughly translates to "I got home stinking of black people."

The campaign was created after Brazilian journalist Maria Julia Coutinho was targeted by racists on Facebook. Coutinho is the first weather newscaster of African heritage on prime time TV.

The racist comments began after another news site commended Coutinho for correcting another news anchor on the air.

The group explained why they blur faces and usernames to conceal the offenders' identities.

"We omit names and faces of the authors because we have no intention of exposing anyone. We just want to educate people so that in future they think about the consequences before posting racist comments," the group said.

    I like.

  • SandrasNewFave

    I can dig it. Nothing threatening, but definitely gives folks reason to pause.

  • Bootcampgirl

    ok
    off topic: for those of you that come in here I need your opinion..First off, do you like and second, what type of shoes would you wear with this..The shindig is in Dec so it may be cold, I was thinking open-toe booties??

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    Um but we see enough of the racist ignorance online everywhere... Expose their identities.... Cowards ..... Hiding behind keyboards instead of sheets now smh

  • Blaque Mahogany

    But how are you exposing them if you aren't identifying them?

    That video of that Fox anchor asking the black anchor if she fixed Kool Aid...smh. But, I'm glad it happened. She needed to be reminded.

  • Bootcampgirl

    right, where are the consequences in that??

  • Yoni

    "Bring'em out. Bring'em out. It's hard to yell when the barrell's in ya mouth."

  • Blaque Mahogany

    I really like that dress!! OMG!

  • Yoni

    I just looked at that dress this morning. I think it's cute. Shoes a T-strap something. AND ORDER IT NOW BECAUSE IT'S COMING FROM ASIA......... ASK ME HOW I KNOW! #2weeksandwaiting #bouttobenudeonthebeachifmyswimsuitdontmakeit

  • Blaque Mahogany

    Where is the dress?

  • Yoni

    In Asia somewhere. LOL

  • Blaque Mahogany

    Oh lawd...nevermind. I was getting ready to edit my comment and say...please don't let it be an IG boutique or one of those Asian websites. She probably won't get that dress until June...if she gets it then.

  • Yoni

    Modlily or Rotia. I think I seen it on one of those sites.

  • Yoni

    SHE didn't need to be reminded, HE needed to be called out. I loved how SHE handled it.

  • Bootcampgirl

    OMG...I hope not, I need it by the 11th..It said they had 3-5 day shipping after processing...I also got an email that stated it has been shipped..

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    It ain't Smh... Pointless crisis imo... Unless you exposing the actual name and the comments then yeah ?

  • i troll it like i see it

    Me likey too : )

  • MissyJ

    If you're not posting names and faces who cares? I all for shaming and embarrassing folks

  • Yoni

    Good luck. Did you click the "urge shipping" button? I need my shit by the 9th (or before). My bday is the 12th. I need to "lay out" dammit!

  • Bootcampgirl

    yes

  • MissyJ

    What's the occasion?

  • Blaque Mahogany

    How did she handle it? I was not impressed. The white man looked more outraged than her.

  • Bootcampgirl

    Now, I'm sad, maybe I'll look somewhere else just in case...

  • Bootcampgirl

    All black party

  • Yoni

    Uuuhhmm that's not ALL black tho'. LOL #blkfolksalwayschangingtherules LOL

  • Bootcampgirl

  • Blaque Mahogany

    Complete waste of money is what it is.

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    Exactly still protecting these fools in some way... Hell we all know folks can say anything and pretend to be anyone or hide easily behind comments.... Tell who you are ... Since ya cawkey and enough to spew the hate ....

  • Yoni

    They're all gonna laugh at you. LOL You're gonna stand out like a sore thumb. They are going to put you out. LOL

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    ????

  • Bootcampgirl

    Bwwaahhh, from how you talking I may be not be wearing this dress anyway...:tears:

  • Yoni

    She flowed with it. Sometimes the best way is to let it flow.........then watch the backlash from SOCIAL MEDIA! I'm quite sure he's aware NOW.

  • SpillyNillie

    Did ya'll see the lil girls face tho? She stopped stirring whatever she was stirring in that bowl...

  • Blaque Mahogany

    Yeah, I'm going to have to disagree with that one.

  • Blaque Mahogany

    Did you see the other white man's face? I missed the little girls let me go watch it again.

  • Yoni

    Man listen. I hope you didn't order it true to YOUR size. They base their models on Asian boys....or girls. Regardless, booty's, hips and tits will have you HOPING a 4X will give you some room. LOL

  • tynamight

    How can Brazilians be prejudiced when most of them have African blood flowing thru their veins??! The nerve!

  • Low E. {CIRCA 1908}

  • Low E. {CIRCA 1908}

    I WENT THROUGH THAT WHOLE CONVO LIKE "DAMN...I HOPE SHE GETS THE DRESS IN TIME! YONI IS SUCH A KILLJOY"

  • Bootcampgirl

    LOL..right, Debbie Downer....I was all excited..until @disqus_mSspQnBwE8:disqus came...lmao

  • Blaque Mahogany

    Huhhhh now I have to boycott Chick-Fil-A. Why, Chick-Fil-A, why!?

    They are making their employees wear "Back The Blue" t-shirts in support of the #PoliceLivesMatter movement.

  • Blaque Mahogany

    I would have clearly asked him..."why would you think I make Kool Aid?"

  • Ms. YaYa

    I like this!

  • 88

    I hope you got the body for that kind of dress.

  • Yoni

    Whale, I got a cute black and gold sequin dress from H&M. And I found the perfect T-strap sandal to go with it.

  • imright

    ppl r really going to go out of their way 2b ignorant now!! this generation loves 2 troll!! now theyve made it a competition!! prize?? BILLBOARD w ur shytty comment on it.??

  • 88

  • Yoni

    I would have too. But now he's going to get it 10-fold. LOL

  • Bootcampgirl

    I don't...:kona:

  • Hmmm~?

    Why blur out their names? That literally defeat the whole point. How are they supposed to face any consequences if no one knows who tweeted it? That's just stupid.

  • Bootcampgirl

    let me check that out...

  • 88

    Well you might wanna rethink this dress you don't wanna look like you got azz in the front and in the back. No Bueno.

  • Bootcampgirl

    why in the entire fck would I order the dress if "I', operative word there, didn't think I had the body for it...Good day 88...Yoni already has the Debbie Downer position...

  • Milani

    The old movie Carrie came to mind when I read this, LOL. That movie scared the living hell out of me.

  • iyonah

    I love this dress!!!

  • Yoni

    The cop that murdered LaQuan McDonald is out......with the help of the Chicago Police union.

  • Yoni

  • Yoni

    Getcha OWN, Jake. LOL

  • 88

    It's ok baby just get something a little more loose fitting.

  • Too Many Colors

    She reverse racist married to a white man sis. She just totally slammed Black Lives Matter last week. Harris Faulkner. Was on this site and Black Twitter getting dragged. Her ass needed to be reminded yet again that SHE is black. No matter how much you marry into, side with, work for (she work for racist ass Fox) etc. You black and this is the type shat that happens. She STAY with some smart stuff to say against blacks.

  • Hmmm~?

    I've heard its a big problem down there. They're all in denial about being partially black themselves.

  • Always me

    Check all of the stores where you usually shop, everyone seems to have done a Holiday line this year.

  • Always me

    BTW, I do hope your first choice arrives in time. It's really cute.

  • Yoni

    Thanks for the education because all I seen was the clip. I don't know her from John. Thought she was a cook showing a recipe. I don't watch Fox News or have Twitter. I saw the clip on Facebook. What they say to her on Twitter? What was her response?

  • Renee Bee

    But...but...that pickle on that delicious chicken sandwich is so hard to resist. Ugh!

  • iWasteTime

    150K bail . . . . smh

  • Blaque Mahogany

    They protect their own.

  • Too Many Colors

    Nothing from what I know. I don't watch Fox News either. If I see a story on race tho, I run my ass to their website just to see their racist ass take on it. Hate them

    Here the post title from here.

  • Too Many Colors

    The same entity that was tryna suppress the tape

  • starbright9449

    Why post if you're going to blur out their names and faces, oh the ignorance. They don't care that people see their ignorant comments as long as no one knows who they are. They probably drive by those billboards and smile.

  • CaliYoruba

    Yup! She looked up like "she 'bout to GO IN" LOL

  • Yoni

    Oh, I remember that post. THAT was the same chick? Had no clue.

  • SpillyNillie

    They will always support "their" cause. In their eyes he was protecting and serving. He saved his life and the lives of his fellow officers. All I can see is that poor boy lying in the street being shot to death like an animal...

  • Meme81

    So much for the 'South America doesn't have racism' talk I always here. Racism exists everywhere.

  • Too Many Colors

    Yes. Her butt.

  • scar

    I AGREE WITH CHARLAMAGNE AS FAR AS THE BILLBOARD TOPIC.DONT GIVE NO RACIST HATER A BILLBOARD.

  • MotherOfDragons, GetOffMyENuts

    Racism is ABSOLUTELY a HUGE issue in Brazil...and it's also more accepted. I've never seen a more insidiously racist and prejudice country. It's pervasive and blatant and yet still people act like it doesn't exist. Most of the money and power is held by white Brazilians who have the luxury of acting like racism doesn't exist while a disproportionate number Afro Brazilians live in favelas and struggle to make it.

  • scar

    FYI DA DRESS LOOK LIKE A KNOCK OFF BALMAIN DRESS

  • Wuts got Petty Davis Eyes..

    BOOOTS! THIS DRESS HAS GIVEN ME LIIFE!!! you could rock this shat to the GOOODZZZ!!!

  • Low E. {CIRCA 1908}

    bootz look and see if they have these in the color you need this may work

  • Yoni

    I LOVE pickles with my wings.

  • sunni_daze

    The dress is cute. You can wear a nude heel (makes legs look longer) or a classic black pump. Either would be nice. You don't want the shoes to upstage the dress. Too much can be too much. Happy shopping

  • Yoni

    I try. LOL

  • Unita Lucinda “Lucy” Freebush

    Claussens maybe? It just ain't the same, huh?

  • Unita Lucinda “Lucy” Freebush

    Really. Didn't know that.

  • <—Doesn'tTalkToStrangers

    They going down with this one EYE BELIEVE :yes:

    Too much lying by too many people. On video! In paperwork!

    Everyone is protesting! Elected officials protesting, church folks protesting, Old people (yt and black), young people.

    They affected sales by 50% just this past weekend at High end stores on Magnificent Mile.

    Said there's gonna be 16 days of protests. Rev. Jackson said they'll do even more after 16 days.

  • <—Doesn'tTalkToStrangers

    Stop being ah fatazz ?? We protesting ?

  • <—Doesn'tTalkToStrangers

    I'll stop patronizing them, after I go in to place an order and ask about these shirts then I'll say loudly "Cancel My Order"

    The Roses that know me, know I'll do it ?? Might even send them a video lol

  • Bootcampgirl

    thanks for da FYI

    Sadly no. It is not the same. I have dreams about that sandwich especially on a Sunday when the doors are closed. ?

  • Yoni

    *gasps* I'm no Debbie Downer! I like the dress. I just want you to be aware if it doesn't come in time. *from now on, I'll keep my facts to myself*

  • Yoni

    I rarely order off line. I go to the stores, so that I can try the stuff on.....for the most part. H&M had some decent dresses. Oops, I said I was going to keep my facts to myself. LOL

  • Yoni

    Am not! I just wanted her to know what she's up against. Hell I want her to get her dress, like I want my swimsuit......in due time!

  • Yoni

    Let's be excited together.....and hope that my swimsuit comes. Yall know it's YALL favorite time of the year......let me shut up because yall don't wanna hear me.

  • True

    They should do this to all the rape apologists that vehemently protect and support Bill Cosby and R. Kelly online.

  • Yoni

    WORD?

  • Bootcampgirl

    too late, I'm already searching

  • Yoni

    I heard it takes a while. I ordered my swimsuit the Sunday before Thanksgiving. It wasn't here this morning when I left for work.

  • Keyster29

    ????????

  • Bootcampgirl

    I know, you were just being helpful...I appreciate it...I'd rather have a plan b since this is my first time ordering outside of the states..

  • Yoni

    RIGHT! Mine too! That's why I stuck with H&M. I went to THREE stores looking for that dress in my size. Ended up buying their last 14 and it is currently being tailored down to fit me. #hadtohaveit

  • Yoni

    Naw Naw....LOL

  • Blaque Mahogany

    Lol. Well, update me if you decide to do it.

  • Yoni

    But THESE shoes tho'.......I HAVE TO find them to go with my dress.

    Take a two spaces out between "item" the slash and "gold".

  • Smith Jane

    It's interesting that this needed to happen in Brazil - of all places lol smh. A country that is, 2nd to Nigeria, in the amount of "blacks", living there. Unreal. I'm happy that they posted the comments on the billboards, however, they most definitely should have revealed their faces and names. If you're bold enough to post it on Facebook, then plastering it over the billboard shouldn't warrant such privacy.

  • Bootcampgirl

    I aint really see nothing that jumped out at me..yet

  • Yoni

    You gotta go to the store and try it on. Hence why this was my first time ordering online. I have to try stuff on and prance around and take pictures and send around the world. LOL I have to feel it on my skin first. Very rarely do things jump out at me on a website. But when they do..... LOL

  • Miany

    good luck on receiving the items on time @Bootcampgirl and @Yoni

  • Mrs. (Asexual) Elmo

    Lol, good job!

  • Somethingserious

    look at the swimsuits on http://www.efswim.com, they have some very cute ones at affordable prices!!! and they are located in the U.S.

  • MookieFly

    The one thing about Brazilians is a good percent of them will swear up down that they are latin first, deeply tanned second. Internalized racism at its best.

  • Saywhatnow?

    lol, you do know the sizes are for small Asian children-Small! And it will be arriving next year.

  • Smith Jane

    Unfortunate smdh

  • marshefen

    Very cute.

  • marshefen

    Right. Why spend all that money to post it if you aren't really going to out them. If you aren't going to post their name, at least post the pic so people who know them can realize who they're dealing with.

  • Yoni

    Thanks. The one I got was $7.90. Are they cheaper than that?

  • jussaying

    Well they never had a civil rights movement and racism is deeply entrenched in society there. It's connected to wealth and social status. No civil rights movement means blacks were way behind. Racists there will say they don't have a problem with black folk as much as the poor. But because there was nothing done to address these issues, most poor are blacks. See how it goes? Cyclic.

  • Renee Bee

    Oh! Those shoes are fy-ah!

  • Somethingserious

    No but they have an extra 30% off marked price going on now and they start at $14.99. They have priority shipping so you will have your suit within 2 days. I have ordered from them and their swimsuits are quality! There cover ups are made in the U.S. also.

  • Yoni

    Good to know. Thanks.

  • Wuts got Petty Davis Eyes..

    yeah girl I got them bad boogah when I saw them too!

  • lovelygamour

    im giving him a pass because that could be a county thing plus they all were just socially akward, and that pie she was cooking did look homely. as for Harris Faulkner, I think she just wanted to bring her white daughter on the show. its like, "hey, im one of you". lol.

  • side_i

    Show their names too, let's go all the way w/ it

  • eljjai

    gorgeous dress.
    I loathe open toe booties. It's cold but your toes are all exposed? what message are u sending with shoes that leave your toes vulnerable to frostbite?

  • Bootcampgirl

    and her you come with reason...

  • http://totallifechanges.com/PurTEA VanillaCaramel2shotsExpresso

    It's a good idea except my Facebook says I am in Chicago and Atlanta and I don't live in either state. Basically I visited the states and turned off my location services after using Google Map. I don't post racist comments though so I'm not concerned, I do however value my privacy.

  • Guess Who

    I would have shown their names and pics. This is FUNNY to me. Brasil is only 2nd to Nigeria with the worlds LARGEST black population. There are more blacks/browns than "white" there. Da fuq? LOL.

  • scentsychick30

    I like now they need to get the bigots on the local news websites?

  • Unita Lucinda “Lucy” Freebush

    Chile that's you with your nose and hands pressed against the windows after hours with no one inside?

  • KB

    It does take awhile with some of the vendors. You have to research the feedback/reviews before purchasing to get a feel for delivery time. I've never got anything messed up but that still goes back to reading the feedback/reviews. ?
    Hope this helps.

  • lala

    Wouldnt have blurred the phases. Black people that the racism was directed towards didn't get a chance to block the hateful comments before seeing them

    i ordered something from them and my first item got lost in china. my second item was not what they said it was. i kept the item and they gave me a small credit to order something else from that specific seller. was crap but oh well, lesson learned. my sister ordered from them and all was well.

  • SandrasNewFave

    I've never ordered from them, but I'm guessing they on the slow list too.
