Nothing wrong with that and if you think there is it says more about your prejudices than anything else. Imo.

A marketing image of a black kid wearing a top saying 'coolest monkey' when monkey is a well known racial slur isn't an issue? Not sure about that

It shouldn't be an issue, you often call kids little monkeys, the fact you can't call a black kid a little monkey is as a result of other people's use of the word in a racist manner, not because it is racist in itself.

Little monkey - scamp
monkey - jungle bunny/coon/other 80s slur against black people. Or don't you remember the days of bananas being thrown at Viv Anderson, John Barnes, etc?

How many chameleons have you ever seen messing around, though? They're as straight an animal as can be. Squirrels are a good alternative.

It would be like the police making a new task force with the acronym P.I.G

You can't refer to blacks as monkeys in any way without looking bad.
