I actually didn't make a monkey<->black relationship myself,
maybe its just a age, local thing,
but, since he said
"You people there...."  
not best grammar,
but referring to the "people" responding to the post,
from TLUG, who as a group, are very non-black (as a general stat)
i could in no way take this post as in any ways implying this negative correlation.
But it has made for interesting morning entertainment on the virtual lynching of zb :)
[and by lynching i do not make any correlation to the lynching common in the
southern states in the days of men wearing silly white bed sheets and pointy white hats, targeted at blacks, and 
therefore I am not inferring that zb is black, but rather referring to the general act of lynching - just to be clear]
