    If it's okay to compare a white man to a monkey, then in the interest of fairness it should be okay to compare a black man to a monkey, too. It's not like anyone is offering the man fried chicken, grape soda, and watermelon while wearing blackface.





    Exactly. Where is the line of saying "OK this is done". I never owned a slave or compared a black man to a monkey because of his race.


    Why is one ok, yet the otherone not ok? Isn't it time we moved passed this?

    I call my very white kids monkeys all the time. I've never called an African American a monkey and I have never been in the presence of anyone else doing so.

    Re: Racist or not Racist.

    This reminds me of the Porch Monkey debate in Clerks II.

    Just sayin'.

    As far as I'm concerned Obama finished it. He got elected. We elected him. An African American person can become anything even President. So it's over. I won't tolerate any more whining, I refuse to walk on egg shells, you don't get to be a victim anymore unless the offense against you is blatant and obvious. We're even steven. It's over. Finished. White people can now just drop the guilt. Put it down and walk away. African American men have now surpassed women. You don't get to whine no more. Done.

    And consistently in a derogatory way, of course, that casts a negative light on their intelligence or job performance. However, throughout much of our history a black person didn't have to have sub par intelligence in order to earn the monkey reference. All they had to do was be black. That's why the first set of pictures is racist. And it's not just in the past, as the monkey/Barak or Michelle comparison is used to this day (and in this thread).

    I find it interesting that some of the people (I'm not referring to you, Tucker) who've made the most racial epithets in the past year or so have the most trouble understanding this.

    I'm not sure, since I'm not natively Chinese, but if I had to guess, comparing somebody to a monkey could actually be a compliment. Monkeys are considered very clever in Chinese folklore.

    With that said, you're all ****ing monkeys in my book!
