A local radio host called the students in my dau's school district "little monkeys" A lot of parents are calling this a racial slur. Well, not all kids in the district are non-white. I think it could have been taken as calling the students animals. Which was still a poor choice of words. But then I think of the childhood counting song about "little monkeys jumpin' on the bed, one fell off & bonked his head...." So maybe it was not meant as an insult at all. What do you think about this?

Kids love monkeys, I never met a kid yet that did not like to be called a monkey.
Now my baby brother I did keep him in a cage and feed him bananas, but I will save that for another time.
