    Arent we technically apes?
    Didnt we come from apes?
    Wouldnt white people look more like apes if we didnt breed with neanderthals in Europe?

    It's a negative stereotype.
    It's like saying that all white males are racists.
    However, the left has dumped white males as a voting block, so they don't have the same protections that porch monkeys get.

    Is applying a "negative stereotype" to one person, imply an entire race of people all over the world are inferior?
    Maybe im just being technical.

    Was my post not clear?
    Im saying it sounds like it isnt racism. Unless we change the definition what racism is.
    As i stated above, i am being technical.

    Would you rather look like an ape or know you are part neanderthal?
    Is asslips calling me a "cave monkey" racist?
    I just feel like there are so many double standards about this subject.

    Put a face shot of your average white guy and your average black guy next to a face shot of your average ape...and c’mon! Can we at least say one of them more closely resembles the ape than the other one?

    And that’s racist?...racism?...reality?...
