Guide to Online Hate

Content warning: This page contains hateful imagery, slurs, and calls for violence against targeted communities. Do not share images from this site on social media without first considering the ethics of disseminating propaganda for educational purposes.

Hatepedia's Guide to Online Hate is a reference for helping identify the symbols, terms, characters, and themes that often appear in the expression of hatred, online and off. Some listed symbols are associated with internet memes while others predate social media.

The guide is divided into categories that reflect the ambivalent and contextual usage of specific examples.

The Guide is also available as a PDF file.

These lists are continually updated, and should not be considered comprehensive. Suggestions for future inclusions can be sent to info [at]

Hatepedia was produced by the Online Hate Research and Education Project, which is an initiative of The Toronto Holocaust Museum. For more information, please visit our website or contact us at info [at]
