GET OVER IT. “Humans and monkeys are both primates. But humans are not descended from monkeys or any other primate living today. We do share a common ape ancestor with chimpanzees.”
It looks like we’re all primates at some level. But it gets really confusing, because all the articles on evolution in Africa contain prejudicial info about calling black people monkeys rather than the facts. I mean, did black and white people evolve from the same animal or not? How difficult can that be to answer? Google is so afraid of hurting the feelings of black people, that their articles dance all around the issue.
I say stop disrespecting the ape, chimp, monkey, baboon by being offended by being called one. Who do you think you are? Better?
