Listen to The Whole Conversation in which Reagan calls Africans “Monkeys” HERE >>>
In newly unearthed audio, the then–California governor disparaged African delegates to the United Nations.
The day after the United Nations voted to recognize the People’s Republic of China, then–California Governor Ronald Reagan phoned President Richard Nixon at the White House and vented his frustration at the delegates who had sided against the United States. “Last night, I tell you, to watch that thing on television as I did,” Reagan said. “Yeah,” Nixon interjected. Reagan forged ahead with his complaint: “To see those, those monkeys from those African countries—damn them, they’re still uncomfortable wearing shoes!” Nixon gave a huge laugh.
(WHDH) — Paleontologists in southwestern France recently uncovered a large dinosaur bone at an excavation site. The six-foot-long bone is believed to be the femur of a sauropod — a herbivorous dinosaur with a long neck and tail. Ronan Allain, a paleontologist at the National History Museum of Paris, said this was a major discovery because the bone was so well preserved.
