    Well then by default i am saying anyone being compared to one is racist.

    One cannot be 'okay' whilst the other is not.
    nope.....we haven't spent centuries dehumanizing whites by comparing them to apes, have we? she wasn't compared to just an animal, she was compared to a specific animal.

    Uh, yeah we have. And Chinese. And latino. And aboriginals.

    It's not just a black thing no matter how hard you try to make it so.

    And the apish cow does look like a monkey in frock.

    But I suppose calling the white fella subhuman is just desserts while calling the apish black lady with the broad shoulders and the Zira updo the same thing is just out of line. Like ZOMGWTF, calling a black person a monkey is SRS BSNS but calling a white person a monkey for the same reason, thats just LAWLZ.

    Ever hear of reverse racism? Yeah check it out sometime. I'd start with a mirror for reference.
    reverse racism? how so?
