His Buds Are Desperate To Save Imus


I am thoroughly disgusted as I watch Hardball tonight. David Gregory (Bush's pal 'Stretch') tells Rev. Al Sharpton that given Don Imus's history of doing good work, couldn't he keep the promise he made on the Today show this morning and have a black person on the show every day, to change how America talks about race.

So ridiculous. Why does America need a moron who doesn't realize that the phrase "nappy-headed hos" is offensive in 2007 to be given a bully pulpit to teach the country about race? What does he know about it? Is he going to teach us as he learns? Sheesh.

They see a 'teachable moment' and they want Imus, the racist, to be the teacher. Completely absurd.

It reminds me of Mark McGwire's testimony before the Congressional committee investigating steroids in baseball, where (besides telling us he was not there to talk about the past) he kept offering to be a national spokesperson against steroids.

Like McGwire on steroids, Imus has proven himself uniquely unsuited to be a spokesperson against racism. But that's the job all his white male friends think he should be given.

None of these jamokes have ever counted the people in the room to find out how many looked like them. Never. Clueless.

Keep commenting on something you know so little about. I don't like Imus or any of his shows, but I do know that he raises a lot of money for many charitable causes that benefit children and adults of all races. Stop with the I hate whitey bullshit. Which makes you even worse than anything Imus said. It's ok for anybody but whitey to say what they want, but when a white person says anything thats remotely offensive you want them fired. You want their lives ruined. So a couple of words that weren't directed at you, are so offensive you're willing to give up personal, and constitutionally protected rights. Bravo to you. You have successfully proved that you're a idiot.

I'm sorry, I didn't notice right away that you're a lawyer. That explains you're false sense of rage at anything that doesn't involve you personally. You might want to look into the laws regarding free speech. He didn't yell fire in a movie theatre, he called them "Nappy headed hoes" (a Spike lee Reference by the way.) And in term that was not directed at any one person , but used as a general term towards all of them. White girls included. You might want to find something a little more important to blog about next time. My apologies to your family.

truth, first of all Fuck you. Second, you are racist for saying the following: "But that's the job all his white male friends think he should be given". Thirdly fuck you again. You don't understand Don Imus and never will.

K.Allen, it's "an idiot." When you write something like "You have successfully proved that you're a idiot," you should at least get the grammar right. Idiot. Also, I don't think he called them "hoes" -- that's multiple gardening implements, most of which, so far as I can tell, are hairless. Who let all the angry white people out?

And just how do you know he didn't call them "hoes"? And for that matter, how do you know he wasn't using a synonym for "sleepy head", because of their lethargic performance on the court?
