Do you feel strongly about Harambe, the hapless gorilla executed by Cincinnati zoo to protect the life of the four-year old child Isaiah whose stupid, irresponsible parents allowed him to crawl into the gorilla’s pen?
Well I do too. Especially when you realize – at least by some accounts – that the gorilla was actually trying to protect the child not kill it.
But I don’t think in the outrage stakes any of us can quite compete with the angry black people in social media forums who have been blaming the incident on entrenched white privilege.
There’s just one flaw in this GorillaLivesMatter thesis. Can you guess what it is?
