It's pretty obvious why an African - American would be offended.

It is? I guess I'm just not getting it. Why would it be any more offensive than it would be to (Curious) George Bush? Could you explain it to me?

Let me find some "facial expressions" of the Community Organizer that match those of a chimp and pass it around.  Since its about expressions and not anything else it shouldn't be a big deal....

It goes without saying that you certainly have to be careful what you say when you are critical of a minority, particularly African Americans, however, seeing as we are striving to achieve a race neutral environment, shouldn't it be sufficient that somebody can say that they simply did not think of it from a racial perspective. If this lady had a history of racial slurs, fine, I don't know.

The heart of the matter right there.

You tell us, is only one of these pictures racist, or are all six racist?

And it is obvious that GWB facial mannerisms were being compared by the pictures that Java posted.

Ya, being compared to monkeys. 

How about these random pics I found by simply searching on george bush and monkey on google?     Are they racist?

Obviously, Bush's intellect, not skin color is being compared to that of the ape. He could have likewise been compared to Neanderthal Man.

He could have. But Obama couldn't. That would be racist.

No, no double standard there...

No need to explain, Morgan. They are selectively missing the point.

Bush and Obama held the exact same position as POTUS.   I find it absurd that one man has to be treated with kid gloves just because his skin color is darker than another man's.   There is something seriously wrong with our society when all men are not treated equally.

No, you are selectively overlooking the double standard.
