  • It's not racist if it's true. If the baby actually looked like one how would it be racist? It's just an observation.

  • Not racist. Despite what the mother may say a lot of babies are pretty ugly. Especially new born ones.

  • Personally, I think all babies look like monkeys, which is why I refer to them as carpet monkeys. It may be insensitive to the feelings of others but not racist.

  • If you said all Asian babies look like monkeys then yes its racist.
    If you only said that particular Asian baby looks like a monkey then its rude but not racist.

  • NO. If a man is fat the man is fat. If a girl is beautiful the girl is beautiful. If the baby looks like a monkey it looks like a monkey.

  • It's gross and insulting. But then I suppose she daily meets a guenon in her mirror.

  • To a stranger's baby, where others around don't know what she intends by the statement, it is rude; & can be seen as offensive... even racist, by strangers.

    In family and friend circles, where witnesses understand her affectionate comparison, it is cute. It's not racist.

  • I don't know, did she look like a monkey? I didn't know monkey was a Asian thing. Might be considered rude though.
