monkeys are NOT a race, they are an animal.

That`s probably because you`re an idiot, PinkRhoid. Pretending not to notice isn`t actually the same at not noticing.

"Yeah! What`s a white boy doing playing Aladin?? Wtf!"

Why is a white man playing Jesus?

Not racist at all.

IMO, saying this is racist, makes you a racist.

If they refuse to cast a little black kid for the role because he`s black THAT would be racist even if they did it to avoid looking racist.

Alternatively, anyone who sees his race instead of just a little boy is more racist including anybody who claims they were implying he`s a monkey HAR HAR.

All I see is a little boy cast for a role in a play, get over it.

What intrigid said: The picture isn`t racist. Suggesting that it`s racist is what`s racist.

Btw, this happened in CA, USA.

Yeah because getting a white kid to play the monkey and putting brown make-up on him is so much better.

The only thing racist about this is thinking it is, saying black people love chicken isn`t necessarily racist thinking that its racist means you are implying that they all do even more, I know it sounds weird the way I say it and I don`t want to type a paragraph but think who`s racist with the way you can throw an accusation around

Monkeys generally have brown or dark brown fur. Black people have dark brown skin. Logical casting choice. Although Aladdin should be Middle Eastern then...

No context. If he wasn`t a good actor and they happened to have alot of small white children around to play Abu who was better, then maybe.
If it pans back you might see 80% of the cast is black! Don`t judge too quickly or your view of the world is what needs to be judged.

Only thing racist I see in this is Disney.

At first glance, I thought it was some kind of satyr. Then I realized it was an adaptation of Disney`s "Aladdin".

I`m hesitent to make assumptions about why this child was cast in the role or assume it was because he was black.

That is a bit disturbing. Racist ? Unsure.

If the black kid is expected to just make monkey noises, and have no speaking role, I`d be leaning toward racist.

[quote]So if the kid dressed as the monkey was white would you say it`s racist? Maybe that kid was a fantastic actor who beat out loads of other hopefuls for this part.[/quote]

And maybe he was cast because he`s black.
We don`t know and without any contextual knowledge it seems kinda racist

The Racist Test
When you see this picture do you:
a)immediately find the offensive connection between casting a black person as a monkey







b)see two actors performing a play in which one of the key roles is a monkey

if you said yes before you read b then congratulations....you`re racist

It`s not racist because he`s black. It would be racist if they cast him because the role *required* a black actor.

*sighs heavily*

Why would any casting director think this was a good idea... and why would the parents allow it?
