    On the other hand Curious George comparison/any monkey & ape comparison has been used as a satire, like every other president in recent history. Nothing is wrong with this, it is tradition to make our elected leaders look like buffoons.

    This is fine, you can read whatever you want out of his clear statement. I simply view it in context of his life, his choices, and other statments he and his wife have made.


    His meaning was apparent to me.

    Like I said, you are basing your assertions on your own interpretation. How do you know that what you describe was the intent behind the image? That's why I said that context and intent are important to know whether something is truly racist or not.

    I just don't think that he would insult or demean his grandmother like you are implying. He obviously loved her very much.

    I am sure he did, he still viewed her racist behavior as "typical of white people" as though he was excusing it because we are such racists.

    This is something I would expect a typical white devil to say.

    Like I said, if someone is not educated enough to understand the context of that snipit, then they do not have the right to be offended by it, IMO.

    It's pretty clear what they meant by those cartoons, get over it.

    Well, technically a person has the right to get offended by whatever they want. Whether it's justifiable or not is a completely different story.
