Is This Racism? The African Americans Think So / The Cincinnati Zoo Killed A 17 Year Old Male Gorilla


On Saturday,May 28,2016 a gorilla at the Cincinnati Zoo had been shot and killed right after it procured and dragged a four year old boy.

After the boy fell 10 to 12 feet straight into the animal’s housing.

Authorities stated that the boy, is anticipated to recover after being indexed right from the for about 10 minutes.

The child was rushed to Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center.

The zoo officials mentioned he was alert when he was transported the hospital.

Director Thane Maynard said the zoo’s dangerous animal response unit made the decision that the child was in “a life-threatening situation.”


In addition they stated that it is necessary to put down the four hundred pound-plus 17 year old male gorilla name Harambe.

“They made a tough choice and they made the right choice because they saved that little boy’s life,” Maynard said. “It could have been very bad.”

He said the gorilla did not seem to be assaulting the boy.

However the animal was initially “extremely strong” in an irritated situation.

Maynard included that tranquilizing the gorilla would not have knocked it out immediately.

In Which would leaving the child in more intense danger.

In accordance to the Cincinnati Enquirer, fire department officials reported the child was in the middle of the gorilla’s legs when it was shot.


Now African Americans’ are calling it racism.

Do you feel strongly about Harambe?

The hapless gorilla executed by the Cincinnati Zoo to protect the life of the 4 yr old child, Isaiah whose foolish, irresponsible parents granted him to crawl into the gorilla’s pen.

Or do you think his parents were irresponsible?

At least, by some accounts the gorilla was essentially attempting to protect the child not kill it.

Nonetheless I do not believe in the invective stakes any of us can compete with the irritated african americans in social media forums.

Who are accusing the incident on established white privilege.

Here are a few Tweets About it:

 “That gorilla was taken from it’s homeland, put in captivity, and then killed to preserve White life. That sounds familiar.”

“That gorilla was black, unarmed and 17.”

 “Killing an endangered gorilla at a zoo for a white boy’s safety is white privilege. If the boy was black they would’ve found a tranquilizer.”

“Wait a minute so you guys spent all day talking about white parenting practices & the gorilla boy is black? Oh boy lol.”



There is just one single downside in this Gorilla Lives Matter thesis.

Can you guess what it is?
