Today’s award goes to all the racist idiots who tried to use the tragic incident at Cincinnati Zoo, in which a young toddler was injured and a gorilla shot and killed, to instigate racial tensions. Breitbart reports that “angry black people in social media forums … have been blaming the incident on entrenched white privilege”.
Unfortunately for such idiots, the photographic evidence is clear:
The child was black, not white.
I suppose this proves, yet again, the wisdom of Abraham Maslow: “I suppose it is tempting, if the only tool you have is a hammer, to treat everything as if it were a nail.” Since such people can only see the world through racist spectacles, it’s understandable (even though lamentable and detestable) that they should see such an incident in the same light. However, it also demonstrates their lack of honesty and integrity more clearly than almost anything else could. They deserve neither our consideration nor our attention.
