I’m so bored with this now. Retailers have been selling children’s clothes with monkeys and cheeky monkey slogans on for decades, I have photos of mine when they were small with their cheeky monkey tee shirts and caps on. Last year my 5 year old twin granddaughters collared me for cheeky monkey sweatshirts and matching rucksacks, can’t exactly remember which shop they were from but there was never any furore about it. This is all because a black child model was used for the shoot, absolutely ridiculous, the little child looked adorable, no offence was meant I’m certain of that, the advertising agency, the child’s parent and H&M would never have let them get published, far too much at stake.

It's just morons seeing something that isn't there. But they want to claim the moral high ground and make a fuss but they cannot see the irony that it is only them who see black people as monkeys.

I see most kids as little monkeys, cheeky monkeys, little shits, but mostly little angels..

But you don't see black kids or black people and immediately think monkey. That's the difference between you, me and these morons.
