MONTGOMERY:    An email that today circulated the Alabama Legislature made a reference that seemed to describe African-Americans as "monkeys," members of the Legislative Black Caucus said in a press conference this afternoon.


Under the subject line "POLITICS psychology," the email shares an anecdote of four caged monkeys trying to reach a banana tied to a string.   


The email ends "from time to time, ALL all of the monkeys need to be REPLACED AT THE SAME TIME!" followed by the disclaimer: "This is meant as no disrespect to monkeys."
