Bonobos are not chimps. Different species altogether. They were referred to as "pygmy chimps" but are as distinct from chimps as chimps are from humans.

It's like saying that coyotes are wolves and that Republicans are jackals. That is incorrect because coyotes and wolves are cousins rather than one being a subset of the other.

BolloxReader: doglover: Bonobos are chimps. Republicans are humans.

Clearly chimps have the higher IQ.

Bonobos are not chimps.


The bonobo (/bəˈnoʊboʊ/ or /ˈbɒnəboʊ/), Pan paniscus, previously called the pygmy chimpanzee and less often, the dwarf or gracile chimpanzee,[3] is a great ape and one of the two species making up the genus Pan; the other is Pan troglodytes, or the common chimpanzee. Although the name "chimpanzee" is sometimes used to refer to both species together

They were called chimpanzees for a long time and are one of the only two species in the chimpanzee family, and there are those of us who still call them as such from time to time, like say when making a joke online.

Anyway, humans are the only animal dumb enough to invent the work day, the alarm clock, and pants. Pretty much the whole animal kingdom has us beat for lifestyle.

So, you're admitting that one is racist and the other is not.

It's kinda like the double standard where a white-on-black gang rape would be considered racist if one ever happened, but actual black-on-white gang rapes aren't considered racist.

If someone is busy getting gang raped, the least of their worries is whether the act was racially motivated.

Well you see it has to do with african people being compared to chimps and gorillas for a very long time that makes comparing a black person racist. Ape Comparisons are not necessarily in of themselves a racist thing.

Much the way tying a nose to an old tree is not in and of itself an old thing. but the second you start pointing at it and gesturing to black folk who are walking by it becomes a racist thing.

Libs really have malformed intellect. If they did not, they could get by without needing to interfere with other peoples' lives.
