Imagine if anybody linked Obama any kind of animal?

So why is it OK one way but not the other?

Because of racial history. Terms like "monkey" and "ape" were specifically reserved for insulting Black people and no other groups. Blacks were the ones being compared to apes and gorillas.

People are always comparing the first lady to an ape or monkey. Two women recently lost their jobs over it. Even though I don't like Trump, no one should compare anyone to any kind of animal, especially a monkey, orangutan or ape.

But did liberals boycott anybody for calling Trump orangutan? Did anybody lose jobs for calling Trump orangutan?

It isn't. However in the Looney Left's world of anti-white political correctness, only whites are capable of being racist. Therefore, it is OK to trash white men in ways you would never get away with trashing a non-white minority.

It should also be pointed out that it was because a lot of white folk are sick of this double-standard that America has elected a leader that does not believe in it either.

Talk about progress!

Do you have a rule book or something? Maybe you should share that so that people other than blacks can understand.

One would think more people would know better. To me, such a question sounds insane, especially if one understands basic U.S. history.

I shouldn't have to share with anyone. Anyone with a basic understanding of U.S. History will no better. This is a ridiculous question to ask. I figured more people would know better. Either that much ignorance still exists, or some people want to be able to call someone like President Obama a "monkey".
