I never read much about the Harambe thing but the jokes did feel kinda racist. It kinda feels like some people saying 'justice for Harambe' or whatever are making a riff on the reaction to police killings.

Well yeah? He was an innocent creature shot to death because his body is culturally saturated with the potential for violence. It's an obvious parallel, but that's what makes it antiracist, not racist.

I would interpret the Harambe memes as a commentary on the backlash itself, like, Oh, you give a shit when it's a damn gorilla but not when it's a human being?

you have white people protesting the shooting of harambe and saying the zookeeper should be fired. Don't you see the irony here?

gorilla: shot because he is seen as an inherently violent creature
black man: shot because he is seen as an inherently violent creature

I feel like a huge number of people having fun with Harambe memes are sarcastically reacting to Harambe by mimicking how people genuinely react to police killings. Maybe some small percentage of people do that as commentary in the way you're trying to describe, but it feels like mostly it's people who don't give a shit about gorillas or police killings. It just feels like it's making fun of BLM and also to some degree I get a stench of 'black people are gorillas.'

But i'm not hip to the meme scene so it's possible I've only seen the worst side of it.
