Kayla is right. It's not that people are more sensitive now than in the past it's that we are just starting to open our eyes to some of the very hurtful and harmful parts of our culture. Just starting to listen to more than one privileged point of view. We have to be aware that our experience is not universal. It may not be offensive to you to stand by a monkey that is dressed up like you but your history is different. You haven't had extremely racist and dehumanizing media portraying your family as monkeys. The people putting together E! are professionals and they should have known better. They make a lot of money and this idea should have been scrapped before seeing the light of day.
