    Re: Racist or not Racist.

    You think? How about "comparing Obama to a monkey is not racist if and only if history never happened."?

    Historically, our presidents have been compared to monkeys. It wasn't racist prior to Obama. It isn't racist now. So, it's not racist BECAUSE history happened. The history of cartoonists comparing politicians to monkeys. See how this works?

    If it was okay for one, it's okay for the other. If it wasn't racist for one, it isn't racist for another. The people who cry 'racism', are those that think a black man should have different rules applied to him. In other words... racists. I really see no other way to describe the attitude that we should treat a black man differently than a white man.

    Re: Racist or not Racist.

    Simply putting a picture of Obama next to a monkey is not racist. Without a contextual qualification it is impossible to determine the purpose behind the reference. For instance:


    Obama considers purchasing a pet monkey.



    Anyone who infers racism when there is no context is simply demonstrating their status as a PC thug.

    Obama considers purchasing a pet monkey but then finds out its his long lost brother.


    Was that racist or just funny?
    Racism is just something for weak minded PC people. I have friends that are black and we always crack on each other.

    There is still no way to determine whether or not said reference is racist; it requires further clarification. Moreover, racism and hilarity are not mutually exclusive, but I'm sure you already know that.

    The REAL question is whether racist comedy is racist.

    I personally find it disturbing that so many normally logical people are willing to overlook something as important as context when it comes to stuff like racism.
