    A wise monkey doesn't monkey with another monkey's monkey.

    It’s a term used quite often, that he has used before. It has nothing to do with Gillum being black

    Wow that’s also ridiculous, the quote was “monkey this up by enacting a socialist agenda with huge tax increases”.

    I've never heard the term "monkey this up" without it being tied to race.

    Really? I’ve never heard it being used tied to race, and I grew up around racists. What context is it used in. Like, “Monkey it up” as in alllowing black people get involved? Comparing them to monkeys?
    I’ve used it as well, basically meaning don’t mess with it.

    Definition of monkey with. informal. : to handle or play with (something) in a careless way : to monkey around with (something) I told you not to monkeywith the lawn mower.

    I am 35 years old. I have a degree in social work and worked in the social work field for years with a diverse population and have encountered many layers of racism and have done extensive work with minorities. I have never, ever heard that term used...ever. Even in today's age of social media where you can hear and see anything you want, I've never heard it. Monkey'ing around. Sure. But not whatever he said. Must be only used at Klan meetings.

    ChrisC, now is going to try to explain to a black man it isn't about race. Proceed.

    So if it was a racist statement, don’t you think you would have heard it before, or are you saying it’s not? You’re kinda contradicting yourself

    This may be a hard concept for you to understand, but it’s possible to look at something without bias regardless of race, religion, sex, etc. I would hope you would have learned that while getting your degree

    No I'm saying you're full of shit by claiming it's some well used saying. I also tried to find other instances where this douche canoe in Florida has said that phrase and it doesn't exist.

    Yeah it's what most white people do. Any white person who says "I don't see color" should have the fire slapped outta their mouth.

    But again, continue to tell the black guy here how it's not about race.

    For someone who doesn't see race you sure argue about it a lot.

    So because I’ve heard it and you haven’t means I’m lying? I’m not sure what you being a social worker and dealing with racism has to do with that. We can check merriam-Webster if you want? Or are they full of shit? Maybe you should author your own dictionary?


    Who says I don’t see race? I said you can look at something without bias regardless of race. Do you disagree?

    I’m not really sure being any race gives you the privilege to argue if something a third party said was about race or not more so than Angie. Else

    Sure, when it’s bullshit. When it’s legit, I don’t argue. I’m not sure what your point is here?

    Also thanks for contributing to a civil discussion between myself and the “black guy” as you call him with your bullshit

    Bias is inherent in every observation as we are all victims of circumstance. To be without bias implies omniscience, which only Miz has.

    Oh I'm sorry. You said it doesn't matter to you know. So you see it, you just ignore that it's there.

    "don't monkey with that" is something I've said to a child who was monkeying with something I didn't want them to monkey with.

    Race is there. It just doesn’t effect my opinions of situations or people.

    Also, you said I’m full of shit about hearing the term. Is cornute also full of shit for hearing it?

    Also also, is Kano full of shit? Or are you allowing you bias against me to show?

    You're always full of shit.

    I'm saying you're full of shit for claiming it's this well known phrase. Unless you specifically referring to the term monkey and adding that to whatever you want to say. The specific term "monkeying this up" I've never ever heard. Not once until it was said on Fox News (which apologized by the way and they don't apologize for much).
