    It's not a particularly black thing: its what humans do to each other...because monkeys are a step down on the ladder but not so absurd as calling another human a turtle or a goose.

    I don't buy the whole poor, down trodden black experience of being called a monkey right before massa's whip came barreling down. That's over now.



    Exactly. Which prompted my question: what's racist about it?

    I notice she ran like hell from the question.
    however, the no, i didn't. i'm working and didn't respond immediately. and are you denying the link i gave was racist?

    Or are you just ridiculously oversensitive?
    The word is not oversensitive, but rather selective outrage.

    No more so than calling President Bush a chimp. Repeatedly.

    because of the intent, jallman. calling michelle obama a gorilla is not funny. and if you're referring to the picture you posted, i consider it racist precisely because she's being compared to a chimp. when blacks have been called monkeys for centuries, it might wear a little thin.

    I didn't find anything racist about the Michelle pic, as i said before. The image got a smile from me. There was no racist intention behind that image

    But what do i know about how black people feel o.O

    Selective outrage is a beautiful thing.

    bull****. when we've seen instance after instance of racist crap flung at obama, when do you NOT assume a questionable picture is racist? btw, i'm not outraged, but saddened. the right has plenty of legitimate ammo, and using race, as some republicans tend to do, diminishes any righteous arguments you might have.
