I noticed a thread at another off site forum which started out as a joke, comparing George W. Bush to a chimpanzee. Poster after poster keep adding to the tirade, and it was all in good fun. People posted a photo from some web site, which has made the rounds lately which had comparisons between GW and chimps. I know most of the posters, and they are all white. Most are male. It struck me that if the subject of their humor was a minority, public comparisons like this, even in humor, would cause some degree of outrage and cries of racism. Shaq O'Neil's recent ill-timed remarks regarding his chinese opponent's language has resulted in a lot of furor lately from the Asian community in L.A. and elsewhere. It seems that most minorities are hypersensitive about things like this, but whites are not. And I don't think that the subject being GW is an excuse. I don't think you could get away posting photos of a black politician with a chimp. In America has it become generally accepted to be able to insult white males, where it's not ever questioned anymore? Should white males be able to treat others as they are being treated, or should they never offend, even when being slammed themselves. Why is it that white males have to be thick skinned, and others do not. Here's the photo to let you know what I'm talking about.
