Africa makes florida looks sane, calm and collected by comparision. It seems to make all other superstitions and religions seem logical and well-reasoned by comparision. Why don't we have an africa tag?

good! those monkeys are a shifty bunch, they'll rip your face right off!

This is why Capitalism is such a good economic model. If a talking monkey was found in America, it would get it's own talk show, at the very least a commercial deal.

Because any derogatory remarks after an African tag would be deemed racist by a portion of the general population.

Is Kagiso a sister city to Hartlepool, England (new window)?
 
2011-06-02 11:40:41 AM
I wonder if they have any relatives living in Hartlepool? The story goes that they thought a poor, ship-wrecked monkey was a French spy (during the Napoleonic Wars), and promptly hanged it. Whether it was a cheese-eating surrender monkey only posterity can tell. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Monkey_hanger

South Africa's NSPCA, which represents societies for the prevention of cruelty to animals, said it was horrified to hear about the monkey's death and would look into possible prosecutions.

You're in a country where rape is the national past time, good luck with that.

The only monkey that should be dragged down from his tree and beaten with rocks.

Sigh, you are calling me racist because I am bashing people that accuse an animal of being a witch and stoning and burning it????? I never brought race into it once. Seems to me you may be projecting.

To be fair, they did say nuke the continent and nothing about blacks. I guess only black people live in Africa.

As long as it was a flying monkey, I'm okay with it.

Look how well they are doing now. I have met over a hundred white Africans, and guess what, they don't live in that cesspool anymore.

BillSmith70: Those "people" are worse than animals.


dolphins are known to engage in violent beatings and gang rape. killer whales will enjoy tossing a seal for no other reason than pure blood lust. chimps will savagely kill a member of a rival troop.

humans reflect their mammalian linage. as far as i know we never stopped being mammal. we are however the only ones i know that can suppress those urges and work past them. however these urges are indeed strong. in some cases it may indeed be well beyond our own control. get people in groups and they will change their behavior vs. being alone. it should come as little surprise that tribal superstitious cultures have these kinds of violent outbursts.

With few exceptions, sub humans have these types of outbreaks.

No.

I'm calling you a racist because you want to nuke an entire continent based on the logic that because some Africans behave in an appalling manner, therefore all Africans should be wiped out.
