Monkey nuts

How can a black seven year old be so energised about his ethnicity that he is upset to be cast as a monkey in a school play? Are his parents raising him as a victim of society or using his ethnicity as a negotiating position at the school?

He wasn't upset; by her own account his mother had to explain to him why he should be upset.

In this day and age you would have thought they would have considered this. Everyone is a victim waiting for a crime to appear to be heading their way.
