"All mankind is of one author, and is one volume; when one man dies, one chapter is not torn out of the book, but translated into a better language...No man is an island, entire of itself...any man's death diminishes me, because I am involved in mankind; and therefore never send to know for whom the bell tolls; it tolls for thee." - John Donne
The context is everything. I didn't see the use of the monkeys as 'racist' on either Bush or Michelle but i would say Blacks have been on the recieving end more than any other race when it comes to comparisons etc.
And actually, it is not a good example, as I am not claiming one side is better than the other, simply destroying the thread starters premise.
Like I said in another thread, the pendulum has simply swung the other way. It is in error that you call me out for something I did not do.
Matthew 10:34Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword.
Federer uses profanity in dispute at Open final - Yahoo! NewsMon Sep 14, 7:07 pm ET
NEW YORK – Serena Williams isn't the only Grand Slam champion using profanity at the U.S. Open: Roger Federer let an expletive fly, too.
In an uncharacteristic display, Federer argued with chair umpire Jake Garner during a changeover in the U.S. Open final Monday. He said his opponent, Juan Martin del Potro, was given too much time to challenge a line call.
"I wasn't allowed to challenge after 2 seconds. The guy takes, like, 10," Federer said.
Then the 15-time major champion used a profanity in addressing Garner: "Don't tell me to be quiet, OK? When I want to talk, I talk. I don't give a ... what he said."
CBS microphones picked up the exchange during its live broadcast of the match.
Another example of incivility.
"You can not be serious with how uncivil people have gotten these days"

My opponent is a liar, and he can not be trusted
This election began like a car wreck; a bad thing, but I couldn't help but look away. It's now more like a beheading video; a sickening display where I can't hit the red X fast enough.
This is nothing new. Ever heard of James Callender?
