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.
