Italy's latest anti-racism campaign

Now I'll admit I don't have the most artistic of minds. Is there some sort of abstract message here I'm not getting?:

Weird the artist kept calling them monkeys really, because they're not.

This was most likely conceived by an uber-liberal with a masters's degree and no common sense. I get that we are all possibly related to apes (if Darwin was right), but you also have to remember half the world believes in the Garden of Eden. This is 1000 bad ideas rolled up into one. We have to be mindful of racism, but lately people are overthinking it. Just treat every person you meet as you'd like them to treat you - it's really that simple.

You're barking up the wrong tree, mate.

This entire stunt screams of an alt-right edgelord's attempt at humour. Anything to push the envelope and widen the "Overton window".

Spend some time on Reddit, or some of the *Chan sites and you'll see what I'm on about.

Don't care what colour someone is as long as they've a devil on their chest.

Hopefully in a few years when players are more out some RuPaul type will get 40 goals in a season and suddenly all the -isms will be gone from the game

Yeah, the Asian monkey with the "almond shaped eyes" is a real nice touch. I don't know what's worse, whether the guy is just so ignorant of reality or just a massive
