What does the banana have to do with race? I never knew that there was a connection.

You'd have to be sleeping in a cave to not know that.

Sorry dude but there's enough racism out there. No need to bring up why giving or throwing a banana at a black person would be insulting. Just take it from me, it is a HUGE racist action! They should have arrested the stupid a$$ that threw it and hauled him off to jail. It's definitely a form of a hate crime!!!
