I'm afraid to comment on it.

... stupid thing to say ... free speech ... political correctness ... deserves to be fired ... over reaction ... racially charged ...

Feel free to mix and match any of the above phrases to create your own sentences!

I like monkeys. They are adorable! :lol:

Wow! Freedom of speech, okay, but this was charged to draw attention. I am not black (native american) and can handle being name called racial slurs or epithets if the context is in a kidding around manner (which I assume was his case) and not to explicit (also his case). However, I very much doubt this clown knew these fellas just as he doesn't know me. If he called me a monkey to my face or a Bow Bender (http://www.johncglass.com/racialslurs.htm), I guess, (I'd rather not use any other slur in this case) I'd punch him in the eye. That would be my knee-jerk reaction and yes he should have been fired as a result in my opinion.
