This is insensitivity on a monumental level, and they deserve what ever PR flack they get over this.

I dont see a clear implication being made from the picture coupled with the question.
The intent, supposedly racist, seems very ambiguous without more context.
Alright I will grant you the benefit of the doubt, by thinking you are a shiny example of "post Racial" america, where race simply is not even a thought in your daily life and or of non-american upbring to know our history.
But calling people of African decent Monkey, is a racial slur dating back to slave times in america, and suggesting that it would be difficult to pick what was different from the three is a tremendous racial slur.
I do not see what is racist here. One guy is in a monkey suit. That makes him NOT like the other two. Get it? The monkey IS NOT LIKE THE TWO BLACK MEN.
Ok for all you guys that don't think this is racist..
Next time you see a black man go ask him what the difference is between him and a monkey.
Then come back here and tell us what he said...
