A lot of monkey business going on in this country.

The new york post
should be renamed
the new york ghost
with count Dracula
as its host
Every person of sense
should give it a
flame throwers toast
Hit it right where it
hurts the most

Comparing black folks
to monkeys isn't new
Its been around for
quite a few
Even the monkeys
know better than to do

Racist see
Racist do
not much different than
monkey see
monkey do
The new york post
is full of primates too
it's a banana zoo

I too had to Google this...I am ashamed for them and I am sure they have dug their own hole!
Words, especially such ugly ones, remain in our thoughts..even if they try to excuse them

Pretty amazing that such an issue should have to be addressed--on a public scale like this--in 2009 isn't it?

Great poem with a lot of editorial bite and strong social consciousness.

A truly disgusting piece, and their 'explanation' wasn't any better either.

As far as I'm concerned, Gem, the NY Post should be renamed
OUT OF BUSINESS. There are no geographic boundaries on ignorance.

I don't usually read papers anymore, opting instead for the internet & I did not hear anything like this that I I will have to look it up...whats wrong with these writers, racism may still exist in places in the very deep south, but in the New York area and in a Newspaper, that is just NOT RIGHT...ed

well written and well expressed--i like the way you told it like it is--as yo always do!
