    You said:

    [It is racist] because of the intent,
    Are you now arguing that you don't know if the intent was to be racist, or not?

    And if not, doesnt that negate your position that it IS racist?

    you can enjoy what you wish. i'm not politically correct, never have been. and i've been known to snicker now and again, despite myself. but i've never thought comparing blacks to monkeys was cool. that's just me.
    The people who jump over such a image automatically as racist needs their heads checked.

    I'd also love to know if they would act half as outraged if it was white person being compared to a animal ... I would bet money they would not.

    If it was racist, i'd be the first person jumping over it. It is just a picture.

    People need to grow up and stop picking and choosing what to be outraged about.
    we all pick and choose what to be outraged about.

    don't we?

    Well at least you confess that your outrage is nothing more than selective.

    If i said Michelle being compared to a animal is racist.
    Well then by default i am saying anyone being compared to one is racist.

    One cannot be 'okay' whilst the other is not.

    you're right. the foodstamps picture was racist, the comparison of michelle obama to a gorilla was racist, maybe the picture wasn't. you got me.

    You, me and Laila agree.
