I'll put it on the table and the mods can delete this post if the truth offends some.
Seems everyone tiptoes around the Monkey/African/American. I have lived in the South all my life and images and comparisons of monkeys and black people are a racist fact. Why? Because to SOME people (whites, asian, latino and even some blacks) Blacks look like monkeys. There. I Brought it out. The big lips, big mouth the nose, and yes the color of the hair.
That is the racist part. To equate someone as being dumb as an ape is not.

I don’t understand a lot of the racial slur stuff. I’ve never understood the watermelon thing for instance.
Would it be racist to compare a white person to a polar bear or to Casper the ghost?
