Conrad Murray -- a black man -- decided he wanted to go trick or treating as a gorilla last night ... and even swung from a tree. And it got us thinking ... why the hell would he do that???
Considering the history of horrible racist people comparing blacks to apes, it just seems like a bad idea.
Then again, there are some people in our office who feel that if any white person (or Latino, Asian or anyone else) can wear an ape costume on Halloween, a black guy should be able to do the same thing.
Still, we gotta ask ...
