OK to call GWB a "chimp" but ....

We read:
"The remark by Mount Ogden Middle School teacher, Judy Sepulveda, calling black student Thomas Terry, 14, "a lazy monkey" was inappropriate and apologies to Terry's family from the Ogden School District and Mount Ogden Principal Trevor Wilson were the right thing to do.

The remark, even if it was not intended as a racial slur by Sepulveda, carries the connotation of such. It is no secret to any informed person that racists have in the past compared blacks to monkeys and apes, etc. Such word usage, designed to deliberately demean, is low-class, disgusting and hurtful to blacks.

If the behavior is monkey-like why not call it that? Leftists thought GWB was monkey-like so said so. What am I missing here? Is it the problem that many blacks really do act like irresponsible monkeys whereas GWB did not? Is it another case of "truth hurts"?

Google might block this blog in retaliation for my asking those questions so be sure to bookmark the mirror site for this blog. The Attorney General of the United States has called for an "open" and "forthright" national discussion about race, however, so maybe I will be let off. Don't try it in an American school, though.

Saw this issue adressed beautifully on South Park.

How is this in any way a racial slur? Don't Evolutionists contend that humans came from lower primates, (from which all apes and monkeys come?) If their assertion is true, then it is not a racial slur, because it is human fact. If their assertion is not true, then we need to seriously reconsider the Evolutionist argument and look at other alternatives.

A fact cannot be racist. We are all descendants of primates. In fact, our closest primate relatives are the Bonobo monkeys. That most blacks act more like wild animals than the rest of us do, (also a fact) is a different issue.

Let's consider this for a moment.
Apparently there are some things you can call a white person but not a black person. Simian names are apparently one category. I would guess anything to do with slavery or watermelon might be others.
What are things that blacks can be called but whites can't?

Nil, I think

Anon 6:09, lots of things. And that's what perpetuates the double standard because there are simply no racial slurs for Whites. A Black can call a Black a Nigger, and it's acceptable, but if a White calls a Black a Nigger, it's racist.

Never mind the fact that Blacks account for the majority of incarcerated criminals. You do the math. Or is that also a White conspiracy?

My dad used to call me a cheeky monkey - guess I should sue him - oh wait - I'm not "black" - shit!

I think it was public television in the U.S. that had a program on the evolution of species, gene switches telling the DNA when to start growing certain appendages and when to stop them, and DNA mutations. One could accurately say a human being is a mutation of an ape, and it would be true of anyone, as a mutation is simply a change in the DNA, and certain DNA mutations gave us the features that make us human. This could easily blow some weak minds.

I hope subsequent mutations on our DNA descendants reveal more intelligence than we see in the majority of this generation.

It's not that blacks account for a majority of incarcerations. It's just a much higher percentage of the black population is incarcerated. In 2005 (most recent year I could find quickly)about 35% of the prison population was white and about 40% was black. However, about 80% of people in the United States are White and about 12% are black. This means that a black person is about 6 times more likely to be in prison. I know I'm splitting hairs, but it's a misconception that American prisons are almost entirely filled with black people. As far as the types of crime, that'll take a lot more space than this little comment block will allow.

I think the real issue is why? I think it comes to poverty. Poor people are more likely to commit crimes than afluent people. Since black people are more likely to be poor, they are more likelty to commit crimes. It's not because they are natural criminals.

Now, why are black people more likely to be poor? You could probably trace some of it back to history, but I think the true answer lies in current cultural trends like the fact that more than half of black children born today are illegitimate.

OK, off my soap box. Lunch break is over.

It's true that we are all hostages to fortune at least as regards the environment we were born and raised in, but we also have minds of our own that can decide how we should best live our lives, and the US and other western countries offer a lot of opportunities these days, so blaming others for our fate has its limitations.
