    The end result when you do it to one or the other is dehumanization. And isn't that really what your beef is? But you'll give it a pass when it's done to the white guy.

    Reverse racism.

    Are black people so weak to be hurt by a picture that wasn't even intended to be racist?

    Blacks *shock horror* weren't the only ones compared

    anyone comparing bush to a chimp wasn't doing it simply because he was white......they were doing it, imo, because they though he had a chimp level intellect. that's the difference.

    Um ... no. They did it because of his appearance. Have you forgotten the side-by-side photos already?

    Anyone comparing that apish knuckledragging sow to a monkey isn't doing so because she's black. They're doing so because she's an apish knuckle dragging sow that looks like goddamned chimp from Planet of the Apes.

    That's because you're a racist. When you look at her all you see is a black woman.

    People with an enlightened thought-process don't see her skin color, we only see the comical resemblance to Zora.

    no, but that comparison was pretty prevalent. who said blacks are hurt? i think people would be more likely to "just get over it" when "it" becomes history.

    btw, my orignal posts had nothing to do with this particular picture, but incivility in general.
