Black People are Monkeys? Darwins racist Legacy

Have you ever wondered why it is considered calling a black person a monkey? In Europe the "thing to do" lately has been to mock black soccer players by making monkey noises. We know there have been some local incidents where black people have been called monkeys.

 

"Everyone" agrees that this is racists. But why? When people show George W Bush with a bunch of chimps, it's merely considered to be derogatory, not racist.

 

This connection comes from evolution. Evolution teaches that some people groups, blacks etc., are less evolved than white people, therefore, white people are superior. That is why calling a black person a monkey is actually saying, "you are less evolved and therefore less human than me".

 

If you think it's racist to call a black person a monkey, it means you actually have been indoctrinated to believe that black people are less evolved and therefore inferior.

 

However, the Bible teaches that all people were created by God and are all related to Adam and therefore equal.

evolution does not teach that black people are less evolved than white people. thats something that was used by bigots in making themselves feel better and superior.
which also caried over into the depiction of black people on the lower cain of evolution and white guys at the top.
its a question of the personal influenceing the scientificoutlook

Paralyzer, I disagree. I promise you when you say this to an evolutionists, they will tell you that "you don't understand evolution", or that it is more complicated.

the bottom line however in the current evolutionary explanation for the development of man basically implies that black people are less evolved.

Anyway, my point is that clearly the general perception, as a result of evolutionary teaching, is that black people are less evolved. Why else would the monkey thing be regarded as racist to blacks, but not to whites.

Think of the Aus kricket player simmonds.

That is what people think evolution says, and that is why it is racist.

Besides, it has long been show that Hitler and his minions used the concept of evolution to justify their persuit of an "Uber" race by accelerating evolution. They got this stuff from Darwin

Evolution is the anti God religion of death and suffering

No; you are completely wrong. Evolution does not say, or imply that black people are less evolved than other groupings. As Paralyser correctly points out bigots will try to imply this, but it is simply untrue.

Evolution is not a religion, it is not anti-god. It is science. It is the explanation of facts. It does not comment on any religion - it cannot, as it can only deal in facts & truth. Neither of which have anything to do with religion.

oh dear, the old Hitler used evolution argument again. This is wrong, and has been shown to be wrong over, and over. At least try to make new mistakes, rather than trotting out old tired ones that have been disproved so many times!

Then prove it wrong....

Evolution is not the "explanation of facts" it is the interpretation of facts.

There is a fossil. fact.

It evolved from when mud got hit by lightning a trillion years ago which no one saw, found food and a mate, had sex, developed a brain and then died under two meters of rock which took a billion years to form.

Interpretation

Hitlers whole mission was to breed an Uber race, this is evolutionary thinking. DArwin clearly stated that some races are more evolved.

It was legal up to 1960 to shoot aboriginal people for "evolutionary research" because evolution taught that they were animals.

Oh and Dissol, why don't you actually comment on the original post?

Paralizer, it has taught it in the past, and it still very clearly implicates it. Peoplke immigrated away from africa and when they returned after a million years they found black people still living the same as when they left. That implies it to me?

Evolution absolutely teaches black people are less evolved you moron and here is a better question if we are all animals and that is exactly what evolution teaches why am i held to some standard why cant i ravage like the animal i am this makes no sense what so ever for anyone with a brain to argue this its futile there is no answer your life has as much value as the dear that are being hunted as we speak in my neck of the woods you are the hunted and im the hunter unless ah unless there is a God who put a value on your life thats born in you my dog does not worry about death but i do because hes an animal and don't give me the BS about the dog is not as intelligent as a human my dog still has a fear of pain but when he is lose in the field and goes after a dear or something he has no concern about death as we do have a concern that is the separation between us and animals we are not nor have ever shared more then what God intended us to with animals they are similar yes but not the same and never will be
