    “Officer Barrett did not call professor Gates a jungle monkey or malign him racially,” Marano said. “He said his behavior was like that of one. It was a characterization of the actions of that man.”

    So there was no better descriptor than “banana-eating jungle monkey”?
    And know the imagery and the history of such a statement you still use it but are surprised that it does not make you appear racist? Even allowing for him not to be labeled a racist, the comment was racist and inappropriate. People just don’t think OR they just don’t think they’ll get caught.

    Question: Were you immediately upset or did you chuckle at his choice of words before the outrage set in?

    I chuckle at that… how can someone who still talks like that have any sense …racism is so played out…like it over the banana talk….and what are you going to do everyime someone says a racist joke or makes a monkey comment..get mad …get violent?? Come on…don’t give them your energy thats what they want… just like Sheree from housewives of atlanta told the party planner that said to her “your momma is a bitch” and she is like..what? is that suppose to hurt me. Same goes to ignorant dumbasses..why go down to their level and give them what they want…senseless. It’s okay to be the smarter and better person.
