PETA Offends Another Racial Group

First PETA offended Jews with their comparison of animals being slaughtered to Jews being killed during the Holocaust. Now they are in trouble with Blacks.
RICHMOND, Va. -- People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals is reconsidering a campaign comparing images of animal abuse with those of slavery after complaints from civil rights groups and others.

The animal rights group's "Animal Liberation" campaign included 12 panels juxtaposing pictures of black people in chains with shackled elephants and other provocative images.

Controversy erupted Aug. 8, when the display was in New Haven, Conn.

"There was one man who began shouting that the exhibit was racist," Carr said. "Then, there was a lot of shouting."

Carr said PETA used the shocking images to prove a point: Whether it's humans harming animals or each other, all point to an oppressive mind-set.

However, officials with the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People aren't buying it.

"PETA operates by getting publicity any way they can," said John White, an NAACP spokesman. "They're comparing chickens to black people?"

Mark Potok, director of the Intelligence Project with the Southern Poverty Law Center, in Montgomery, Ala., called the exhibit "disgusting."

"Black people in America have had quite enough of being compared to animals without PETA joining in," he said.

What creates in these people the thoughts that they can equate animals to humans? I like animals also, and I love my cats, but I know that they are not human, so why do these bunny-huggers think this way? In their obtrusiveness they have damn near offended every human racial group that they can, and I bet they can find others to offend. These people are not normal, and their values are not the same as normal people, so to them humans and animals are the same so need to be treated the same. And if they think that way, I say we treat them like animals to see if they can tell the difference.
