Context is all.


There is absolutely no doubt that “monkey” is also widely employed as a racist epithet, and that using it alongside “Mexican” tends towards a racial connotation.

Come to think on it that's the word I've used most referring to my two dogs since they were pups, as in, What have those monkeys got into this time? Maybe I'll have to sit down and have a talk with them. I'd hate to think I've been species insensitive.
