So what if he said it? In many cases it’s damn well true. Oh but we can’t say that anymore true or not. And we shouldn’t mention white pearly teeth in the dark either. (Shine, Louie Armstrong, 1931)
We had tough and I mean a rough Boatswain’s Mate named Green on our ship. Not a bad guy or anything but, darn if he didn’t favor a monkey like or an ape like appearance. Which isn’t saying anything bad about the guy. I hardly knew him personally but it’s hard not noticing ppl aboard ship. And that’s how he looked. So why would it be all that criminal to say so among your peers? As for the cop here well, it does appear as if he is hedging bets and trying to back off. I guess he has a job to protect in which case, sadly, he should have known better then to say out loud what very many white folks already think. Where did he ever get the idea that he had freedom of speech? Who does he think he is? Certainly not a member of a protected group that MUST be hired in place of certain others to make up quotas and keep the left happy.
All this pc crap is so much nonsense it just has to end one day. But when?
I was merely discussing evolution, says policeman accused of calling black people ‘monkeys’
A police officer accused of describing a group of black people as “monkeys” has told a court he was merely referring to their unusual gait.
By Telegraph reporters
PC Kevin Hughes, 42, allegedly made the racist remark while on patrol with three fellow officers in Newham, one of London’s most ethnically diverse communities.
As they passed three black men leaning against a wall in Green Street, Upton Park, the officer allegedly said: “Look at them, they look like f---ing monkeys”.
But Hughes told Westminster Magistrates he had simply remarked on a man’s gait and posture while discussing the theory of evolution with PC Costas Dakoutros
“I had engaged with PC Dakoutros, we were discussing about evolution or terms of that kind,” he said.
“We were in the car, I had a fleeting glance to my right hand side and saw a gentleman.
“I said that man there was walking like a monkey. PC Dakoutros said something along the lines of ‘are you saying that because he is black?’
“I just said it has nothing to do with him being black, I noticed him because he had elongated limbs, his gait. I said that was why I picked him out, because of the way he was walking. It was a fleeting glance.
“I was just trying to reinforce my point that I believe that some human beings had characteristics that resemble monkeys. I just said that man, with the gait, he was walking like a monkey.”
He added that he considered his own “sticking out ears” to resemble that of a monkey and that others’ noses or lips might also do so.
During the discussion he also said black people were closely related to “chimpanzees and Neanderthals,” it is claimed.
When asked if he had used either of the words, he said might have used the former, but did not even know what Neanderthal meant.
Cross-examined by prosecutor Kate Wilkinson, he admitted that he was aware of the racist connotations of likening black people to monkeys and that he had described the man on the street as walking like monkey.
The trial continues.

I find this so typical of liberals - they can’t even get their own crappy beliefs straight - as they are the PROGRESSIVE MORONS who believe the African Genesis stories.
"look at that little monkey run!” says Howard Cosell, ending his career as a sports broadcaster.
When was that? 1983? You’d think folks would have learned that the monkey business was off limits by now.
