    It is not the same thing. Black people have been compared to apes throughout history by racists saying that they were less human than white people and were closer to apes. This is not the assertion that is made when people are calling their kids monkeys and when they do call their kids monkeys it does not have a connection to their race.

    I really don't care. You don't get to take the terms monkey, ape, chimp, etc and decide that whenever they are used around black folk they are racist. I don't buy it. Unless it is used in a context where it is obvious the entire black community is being attacked in one fell swoop it isn't racism. It's just not, no matter what you say.

    Well, I'm sorry you are not convinced but Black people have repeatedly had their facial features compared to apes and monkeys.

    You sure about that?

    Besides, I don't see a race of black people in that there photo of Obama. I see a single person.

    I'm not. I am most definitely an acute angle kind of guy. I go right to the point.

    So?

    Ain't it time for them to grow up and get over it?

    If it's valid to compare Bush to a chimp, it's doubly so to do so with Obama, who is already getting the record books re-written to have his name down as Worst Prez Ever.

    Yes, a person who belongs to a race of people that have had a racist slur of comparing them to apes. Do you understand that certain things are racist in connection to certain groups?

    For example portraying a Jew with a huge nose with a pile of gold or some such would certainly be racist.

    If you think this is true you are completely moronic.

    Of course, the Irish needed somebody to run their banks so they had them convert.

    All people have. As I've said, scientifically chimps are our closest relatives. We are -all of us- very similar to them and many of the great apes.
