    Everyone knows Afros are monkeys (minus the tails).

    No one would dare make a commercial about basketball with monkeys. But, they did with gymnastics because there's almost no Afros in the sport.

    Why would anyone be ‘outraged’ when the ad wasn’t intended as ‘racist.'

    I agree. It would seem all those who called NBC to bitch about how racist they were being are the ones with the racial hangups.
    Do I REALLY need to be ultra careful to in no way reference, speak of or even think of monkeys within some certain time frame from having spoken with, referred to or thought of a black person?
    Seems if I were to do so, I'd be as sick as the race baiters.

    What about Costa's statement that only "young African American girls" should be inspired by Ms Douglas? No outrage over the blatantly racist implication there?

    pfft
