I would be fine with the gorilla issue being discussed on anywhere but Imgflip, which is built for humor, not tragic news. I don't like the "stupid gorilla" remark though. I isn't his fault he was shot. It was the negligent parents who caused all this.

An eternally Grumpy Cat murders hundreds for attention and no one cares. But God forbid a gorilla is shot to protect the child of negligent parents.

People are killing other people every single day. If we were to make a meme about every person who is killed by another person, that is all imgflip will be. As far as the gorilla goes, I still say it should never have been shot. The foremost gorilla expert Jane Goodall even stated that the gorilla was trying to protect the child. But if you think we should stop making memes about the gorilla, then maybe we should also stop making memes about the presidential race, celebrity deaths, and anything else that isn't considered to be humorous.

True. I feel bad for the gorilla but people don't even care that 8 people were killed that day

But that was black people killing black people. Black lives only matter if white people kill them and the Left can use it to political advantage.

Seems that's the only time lives matter. When they can be exploited politically.

Sad but true. I lean way to the Right but I see them do it on occasion too and it bothers me. However the Left has made an institution of it.
reply

Yeah. I'm the same way, I see the right do it (I.e. Donald Trump and his punish women comments) but the left just uses people as political pawns. I mean, how offensive is it to be known as part of the 'black vote'? Lol

True. But unfortunately for rational people like us we have to choose between the lesser of two evils. Hence my earlier meme.... imgflip.com/i/144ny5

I think it's not just the fact that a gorilla was killed, but the fact that because of a parent's negligence and failure to watch over her child, another animal was killed. Also, it's not often that a kid manages to get into a zoo enclosure and an endangered species is shot and killed, so people are more surprised about it ant talking about it.

Good point. It doesn't happen every day and people are curious by nature. I wonder how many witnesses stood at the gorilla enclosure with their phones out catching images and then posting them.

It's the damn music and video games the kids play these days. Harambe would spend hours playing 'Donkey Kong' on his X-Box. Be thankful that was just a kid and not a bunch of barrels.

An important difference: The shooters of those 8 people are either considered criminals, and are eligible for prison, or there are extenuating circumstances (e.g. a shooting in self defense). So (with one notable exception) we feel like we are already doing as much as we can about this. But the people who shot the gorilla are not in any way culpable or held responsible. There won't be an investigation or a trial. I think this is why people feel like they have to speak out about this. Not that an investigation or trial is necessarily appropriate; but without any public censure at all, then the next decision to shoot an animal may be taken more lightly.

Also, it's easy to say that this gorilla was an animal, so who cares. But there are big differences between species. A gorilla has the same legal rights as, say, a rat, even though a gorilla is much closer to a person than a rat in terms of psychological sophistication.

The notable exception I mentioned above is the case where police shoot black people with impunity. Well, police in general do whatever they want with impunity, but this is one case where people feel like they have to speak out, and the reason is not that shooting black people is somehow worse than any other police shootings, but that there doesn't seem to be any institutional system in place to deter racist police from shooting black people. In other words, it feels like we are not doing enough.
