The Republican Party of Iowa briefly posted a photo on its Facebook page of a flowchart asking readers to determine "Is Someone A Racist?"

The flowchart first asked if the person was White or not White. If they weren't White, they were automatically not a racist. If they were, it then asked "do you like them?" If the answer was yes, they were also not a racist. However, if the answer is no, then "they are racist." The flowchart also noted "if you think this flowchart isn't funny, then this flowchart is racist."

It was posted by the official Iowa GOP Facebook account at 8:00pm EST on Friday night with the message "Because it's Friday night and we don't need serious political posts on Friday night we are sharing this. Happy Friday and LIKE and SHARE! Unless you think the chart is racist, then don't."

After the flowchart was brought to the Republican Party of Iowa's attention, it was quickly removed from the Facebook page.
