coming for NBC.
Taken to task for their tape delay, talking over the opening ceremonies and a garden variety of other missteps so far during their broadcast of the 2012 Olympics, they now have to deal with this: After Bob Costas paid tribute to Gabby Douglas's gold-medal glory, saying, "But there's some young African-American girls out there who tonight are saying to themselves, 'Id like to try that too,'" they immediately went to an ad featuring a monkey doing gymnastics.

Saw that ad and believe me, NBC has sunk to new lows.
I LOL’d at the absurdity of these PC punks making such an obvious gaff.
But in reality, if the “Race” of olympians were as irrelevant as they are claimed to be, there would be no reason to laugh or sigh and no gaff would be apparent.
Racism is nothing to monkey around with.
Do you think black person when you see a monkey?
Only if you’re a liberal.
But the leftist NBC gets a pass.
Had this been Fox, Al Sharpton would be picketing Monday.
You can’t make stuff like this up. Bwwwaaaahhhh!!!
Best laugh I have had all week!
LOL, if you’re gonna build a minefield, ya better make a map!
This illustrates the fallacy of Political Correctness. There’s no way to avoid violating the rules. Everyone is guilty, even the super-politically correct NBC. The whole concept is to make everyone feel guilty about their “inner feelings,” which are hidden so deep within each of us that we ourselves are unaware of them.
We are all supposed to be like people who have second-degree burns, sensitive to the slightest touch. Always offending; always easily offended.
I demand that the Just-us brothers get right on it anyway.
I only look like I'm white.
We had seen the ad before, but being "race neutral" ourselves, failed to make the connection...
Who is monkeying around with racism?
The video is no longer available because the youtube account has been terminated.
It was a joke - a play on words.
Where did you get that nude photo of the one Barack sleeps with in the White Hut?
