    Do you think the motivations behind H&M were entirely racist or was this just a miss understanding?

    Adults often refer to children as monkeys in an unoffensive way, often to explain their often wild behavior.
    However on occasion the word has been used as a racial slur towards blacks.

    Many people are unhappy with H&M due to this advert. One black artist named "The Weekend" who collaborated with H&M has vowed never to work with them again because of this incident. P Diddy also vented his anger at H&M over this advert.

    Are they overreacting? Is this another example of politically correct liberals being overly sensitive towards race?

    It's just coincidental.

    Big companies should obviously just use straight white models in their ads, so that this sort of thing can never happen.
