-the people have the right to protest the shirts either if they are right or wrong (personally, i do not think it is racist. George Bush compare to a clueless monkey.....RACISTS!!!)
people, learn a lesson from Avenue Q. Everyone is a little bit racist. http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=tbud8rLejLM&feature=related
you don`t came out and say racists things...but you say something so that the racist conclusion is the ultimate outcome
bill o`reilly is a vague racist...like with his whole mother*ucking tea thing
Heh, well put.
They only see it as racist because they want to. Oh yeah, and because it was made by a white guy instead of a black guy. If a black guy had made the shirt they`d probably be all for it rather than protesting it.
And I totally agree, I`d rather vote for Curious George than Clueless George. But I hate how the candidates make it impossible to vote and not be accused of being racist or sexist because you didn`t vote for one or the other.
1. I want to make a T-shirt criticizing Barack Obama in some way (not racist)
2. I want to depict him in a way that demeans him (mean, possibly ignorant, but not racist)
3. How about a monkey, even though I know quite well that one of the most significant put-downs I can lay on a black man is to call him a monkey? (Just an idea at this point, not actually ON the t-shirt yet, so no racist act has actually happened.)
4. I want to put that monkey on a shirt and compare him to Barack Obama, who I know to be a black man. (This is when it becomes racist. I`m not sure how so many people are missing this.)
It`s not a complicated issue. Comparing a black man to a monkey is racist because everyone knows it`s racist, bottom line. How conversations about race get so complicated and off topic I`ll never understand.
DON`T CALL BLACK PEOPLE MONKEYS!
I know..n00b. Just couldn`t hold off on this one
Curious George is the drating man.
What`s the big dealio?
nah, its racist.
Hell I`d love my name on a shirt with a picture of a monkey, monkeys rule!
It IS Curious George (the sh*tty new version, not the cute old version). They just fudged the coloring on the mouth and tongue.
And I could give a sh*t less about the shirt. Obama`s black, yes, we noticed. By law of nature jokes will be made. Stop acting like it`s huge news, "ZOMG PPL R MAEKIN FUN OV BLAK PPL NO WAI"
ALLLLLLL THE TIIIIIME.
Yeah, there has been racism in the united states, and yeah, it still exists, but not as much as people want to believe. While in the minority any more, there`s alot of white people that hate and stereotype black people (like thinking they are always stupid, etc), but there`s also alot of black people that hate and stereotype white people (like thinking they are always racist, etc).
He said one particular black man is like a monkey because of appearance (and maybe inexperienced position)
If he`d had said all black men look like monkeys due to appearance, that`s an OBSERVATION.
If he`d had said all black men are stupid like monkeys, THAT would be racism.
I`ve met alot of stupid people in my life, but I have noticed that they are generaly spread out rather evenly throughout the different races, genders, religions, and otherwise.
And I can`t stand ANY of our presidential candidates.
and as for Hillary
Cause George Bush looks like a monkey
I wholeheartedly agree.
Why is it racist when it portrays Barack Obama but it isn`t when it portrays George Bush?
but if it is about race, then that justifys why they were still selling the shirts after they were asked not to, because they want to make a point
i think it`s racist..and it also didn`t help that it was a southern American selling the shirtsand then right after the narrator said "some people still support the shirt"it cut to another southern Americanthat part made me lol
so yeah, i think it`s race.
He`s being compared to George Bush.
...or is comparing Bush to a chimp racist as well...
Perfectly put ThursdayLark.
By the way, the black man in the yellow shirt.. where`s his greencard? Nice Nigerian accent. Now he`s "African-American", that is, if he`s here legally.
Saying an African American Candidate looks like a cartoon monkey when in fact, he does=Not Racist.
If we say John McCain looks like so pale he got into Robert Smith`s make-up kit or Hilary looks like a robot, can we all be cool with one another again?
no no ive got it wrong, what was it again?
What`s worse is when people of any race say words like "Deplicted" on national TV and make themselves look like the stereotype they are trying to avoid.
It was said earlier by someone I can`t recall but it would only be racists if it referred to all African Americans as monkeys.
If it were, like, Winney the Pooh or something, this would not be an issue. Only because African Americans were referred to as "monkeys" by some in the past is this an issue.
And plus it`s true, he DOES look like Curious George.
(What you actually said) Blacks need to learn that very few people in America care whether they`re black or white, and we`re not all out to get them and that you aren`t always victimized in America.
It doesn`t matter the race group that is the victim, or how much it takes place, it matters because it`s still racist.
And the T-Shirt can be considered racist, cause Obama is African American and Curious George is a "monkey", and the fact that Curious George also has dark fur can tie-in everything. Even if it wasn`t meant to be racist, people can still find it racist.
As far as the shirt goes, though. That`s pretty bad, I don`t think that it`s a harmless coincidence. There are a lot of other things that he could be compared to, but a monkey?
Are you saying that I am talking to blacks as if they are monkeys? how did you get that impression? i don`t mean every black is hypersensitive about race, i just mean a very vocal group of blacks are
At first I didn`t think it was racist, but now, I can see why.
Racism and PC FTMFL.
I really do not think Curious George resembles Obama at all. Obama does look a little like Luke Cage though, just older and with less muscle. Depends on the artist though.
Like mrwnt said, this country is too pussified. Sack up America. I`m just waiting for some liberal to call THIS post racist
And of course, the white southern men have no problem with the shirt. Idiots.
We`d better get used to this stuff---he will be the next president of the U.S.
rush limbaugh was crucified for saying that people wanted a black qb to succeed. That`s the opposite of racism if anything! but people heard the word black and labeled him a racist
This is not racist. Why should this be any different than how Bush is depicted as a monkey because of his big ears? Blacks need to learn that very few people in America care whether they`re black or white, and we`re not all out to get them.
Blacks, you aren`t always being victimized in America! despite that fact that many of you try to guilt-trip whites with histrionics and self-pitying
Oh. My. God. Hahaha.
You know, it`s racist, but in a weird sorta way it works. It`s the whole "I can`t believe they did that" thing.
But he has a point...the ears...the hairline...
WAIT A MINUTE!!!
THE SHIRT!! IT`S WORKING!!!!!
