Oh, so it is mostly just the US then.
If I struggled to the end of my determination, to the end of my way of life with my followers, if the result is ruin, then this ruin is inevitable. Grieve. Shed tears. But you cannot regret.

i remember him also cracking a joke about how black people can't be seen in the dark. i think he's a very insensitive person.
he also has a poor choice for nicknames, that scrotum one was super hilarious, wasn't it?

As far as I ever saw, chimp is short for chimpanzee, and I genuinely don't know what you guys are saying it's a racist connotation for. I assume it's either for Black or Asian people, one or the other, but I honestly have never seen it used in that context, personally (TBF I don't hear people talk about chimpanzees every day either, and I also don't spend a lot of time listening to how racist people commonly talk, but you get my point). I didn't get what JZ was talking about the first time.
Blacks are compared to monkeys to signify they're savages. It's an old stereotype. It didn't click with me "chimping out" was about blacks because I've also heard the expression used when whites have meltdowns and assumed it was more universal, like "going bannanas", but I don't have a problem with not using it again.

Yeah, I get that, it's just that I also never heard that particular expression being specific to Black people (or Asians, who have also had that racist comparison, because racism).

I wasn't trying to hate on you or anything, don't know you enough to care, it's just an expression I've only seen in places like coontown or stormfront (and I feel shitty that I have seen anything from those places at all).

Even though I'm white, I've been called a monkey, for simply being Brazilian .... it's that the jungles of Brazil are full of monkeys.
In fact, people like that have no argument, and they seek any cursing to offend you
