The University of York has stopped using the three wise monkeys to advertise a conference because;

"Upon reflection, we strongly believe that our first poster [the monkeys] is not appropriate as its iconology promulgates a long-standing legacy of oppression and exploits racist stereotypes."

And this is my favourite bit;

"We bring this to your attention so that we may be held accountable for our actions and in our privileges do and be better."

Is the University being bedwettingly pathetic?

Also, I've never looked at the three wise monkeys, or any monkey for that matter, and made any sort of connection with black people because...well because it's just nonsensical to do so, so given it appears the University has, aren't they being a bit racist?

Apologies for linking a Daily Moan article - I know this is one of AB's greatest sins.

Let's not split hairs, which definitely aren't rabbits.
