You think? How about "comparing Obama to a monkey is not racist if and only if history never happened."?
"We may have destroyed this country, but we got rich doing it!" --The GOP
There is a special place in hell for those who care only about themselves.
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.
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.
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.
