George bush has been compared to a chimp for the past 8 years. So, in fairness, we (Obama supporters) should just fall on a grenade on this. It will go away.

Shameful, disgusting. Unbelievable that white racism still exists like that.

It hardly matters. The real dope is the bar owner who made the shirt.

But I am so glad the country is being forced to see and confront it, and not pretend it away as usual.

It is a good thing they didn't turn him over to me. I'd make him wear that Tshirt, but strip him naked of EVERYTHING else, then toss him in the back of a military C130, fly him out to Oakland, California.

Then drop him off at East 14th and 98th Avenue at midnight with no references.

I'd so buy one! GWB has been trashed and compared to everything under the sun.

Thats good old fashion brutal American politic's. If Obama can't stand the heat get out of the kitchen!

Its only racist because he is black, Hillary has been compared to a lot of cartoon characters and no one gives a damn.

BTW I will keep a close eye on this thread.

He's free to make whatever shirt he wants, they're free to stand outside his business and protest. I don't agree with his shirt, and I don't agree with their protests. There ya go.

Sorry Hat but I disagree. I am jewish. Making a joke about me being 'cheap' is going to be interpreted quite differently than a joke about you being 'cheap'. It is different and you know it.

Blacks in this nation have endured centuries of degradation. They were compared to the ape family as I recall (and not in a favorable way). Make fun of his speech patterns, his ears or what ever. Comparing him to a monkey is like putting his likeness on a Union Jack or a white robe. There are certain lines that should not be crossed and that racist crossed it with both feet.

Having said that, it is a free country and everyone has the right to show the world what kind of person they are. That bar own just put is character on display for the world to see. Racist white trash still exists in the the USA.
