Row over boy's monkey role in play
Jun 22 2006

A mother has taken her son out of a school play after he and another black pupil were cast as monkeys.

Lorraine Rees said that Ashley Down Infant School in Bristol had acted in a racist manner by asking her son to perform the role.

"I think what the school have done is definitely racist and should never have been allowed to happen in the first place. It is just not acceptable".

"There is no way that black pupils should even be asked to play monkeys in any type of play".

Head teacher Helen Heap said an investigation into the incident would take place. Three other white students are to play monkeys in the play, which will be performed next month.

That's moronic.

If she doesn't like it we could always offer her and her sons a plane ticket back to the african nation of her choice so they can go live it up in that earthly paradise instead. I'm sure no one will ask her sons to play as monkeys in a school play there.
 
Yes. I don't know enough about racial stratification in Britain to make that claim. I don't think the British are nearly as redneck as the US is though.
 
Okay, so three white monkeys and two black monkeys? Shit man, I could understand if they made it so there was 10 monkeys and all were black, but more than half of the monkeys are white, 3 outta 5.

If she's upset about that, they outta just replace the three white monkeys with three more blacks and have the white guys whip em during the play or something. That outta give her a real reason to cry racism. :rolleyes:

That lady is the one being the racist, not the teacher.

Even if this happened in America, I would still say that it was the mother being racist and not the school. The mother should be slapped. Ignorance is bliss I guess.
 
why should we even care, its just a jumped up black women getting on her high horses about a kids play, lets put em in rags and put shackles on them and then see how she likes it
 
It's not like we enslaved the current black population in the UK anyway. Most of them were imported here from the West Indies in the 1950s.

So the whole slavery thing isn't even an issue for "British" black people.

It is very clear that many blacks view themselves as monkey like people.
:confused: They do?? I may be the newbie but that is the most asinine provacative comment I've heard in a long time!

Would it have been "racist" for the teacher to decide NOT allow black children to play the role of monkeys?

Is that not what the mother is asking for?

The only one who is seeing these black African children as "monkeys" is their black African mother.
 
Speaking from her home in Henbury, Bristol, Mrs Rees said: "Everyone is aware of the racist connotations of asking a black pupil to play a monkey.

"I think what the school have done is definitely racist and should never have been allowed to happen in the first place. It is just not acceptable.

"There is no way that black pupils should even be asked to play monkeys in any type of play.

"My son is very upset by all of this, he had wanted to play the part of a hunter but was told he would have to play the part of a monkey."

I agree with the mum. I think it's insensitive of the school at best.

And I think D'ster should be barred before I batter him.
 
What's wrong with playing a monkey? We're all apes anyway.
If africans resemble monkeys more than europeans, then more power to their roleplay.
I think the mother is so wrapped in her racism concepts, that she doesn't see her own arse.
