There is the term “ monkeying around” or “ don’t monkey with that” or calling someone a “dirty ape” which could be because they don’t bath or have bad behavior.
But in the South the terms “ porch monkey” or “ yard ape” are always racist and directed only at Black people.
Once I called some little white kids “gibbons” ,because they were acting like them.Jumping all over the tables in a restaurant and screeching.
I would take what these council members said as racist because of the context used.

You mean the links that never go where you claim they do? They're as worthless as your opinions, and just as baseless.

Back to claiming to be psychic again? I thought we were past that, pity.
