    Neither is racist but they are both assholish comparisons.

    Sort of like this one:

    I hate to admit it, but that one is kind of funny in a hair style sort of way.

    Re: Racist or not Racist.

    Based on the history of comparing black people to monkeys, in terms of appearance, intelligence, ability, etc... The first one could very easily be racist, and is probably how it is originally interpreted by just about anyone that looks at it, but I don't think it's inherently racist, as I don't think it's possible for anything to be "inherently" racist. Communication is not based simply on the presentation of sensation (talking/hearing, hand gestures/seeing, etc...) but on the relations between these presentations. This is why I also don't consider words to be inherently racist. The term "nigger" for example is not racist in the context that I have used it in this sentence.

    As for the second presented image, I don't see how that could be construed as racist in any meaningful way.

    Or was this some weak attempt at "proving" "reverse racism"?

    How did I vote and knowing that now, do you want to rephrase this?

    Black people have frequently been compared to monkeys in a derogatory manner, while white people have not. Asking us to judge the two examples to be equal is expecting us to forget, you know, history.

    Except that some of us have moved well beyond a period of history we never lived.

    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.

    And presidents and politicians have been historically compared to monkeys as well.
