Imus got the boot!

this is total bullshxt! his tv show got canceled because he called a bunch of chicks nappy headded hoes?! sure it was a bad joke, but this double standard just burns my ass! howmany times dont i hear the dj's @ hot97 call females hoes and broads, and dudes nxggas, but its alright cause they're black? but as soon as a white guy calls someone a nappy headded hoe he gets all the criticism int he world!

From what I hear this isn't the first time this has happened. Besides, it got canceled because the sponsors threatened to pull their ads, it's all politics.


But yes, the double standard is stupid.

Im hispanic and white, black co-worker doesnt do jack squad, i take it up to the bosses and they tell ME to "extend the olive branch" because what's her face got mad that i complaint about doing all the work, and because the semi-white man is trying to keep her "down" as she said

As for Don Amus (as Sharpton pronounced it...) screw him. He's atleat 250 years old and doesn't know what he's saying.

Compared to the other racist remarks he makes...this wasn't that bad. I hope he dies tomorrow anyway.

what irks me more than anything is why do people have to repent to jesse jackson or al sharpton every time somebody says something the least bit stereotypical about black people? they hardly represent all of black culture. And their over defensiveness, i believe, leads to more sterotypes and generalizations.

There are more influential sources of media that portray women as much worse than being nappy haired hoes.

Jesse Jackson is a piece of $#!T. He's just as much if not more of a racist as Imus. And Sharpton is a homo too.

Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson can kiss my a**. They are nothing but racist dinosaurs who probably need to be imprisoned in some eastern european country where they are tortured on an hourly basis. They have done things similar to Imus (who is also a major dumba**) and not had the public lynching they have given Imus. People take this politically correctness bulls*** way too far. Every person in this country has a right to be racist. If you want to hate every culture/race/sex/whatever, that's your freedom and if you want to express your hate through speech or writing, go for it. As long as it isn't impeding on others rights, people shouldn't get their panties in a bunch because you don't like them. That's what it means to have freedom of speech, but apparently free speech only applies in this country if the politically correct nazis agree with the subject.

unfortunatly what keeps these people from flying their middle fingers in the face of PC'ness is greed. they wont get paid if they're not on the air.

I concur with this statement in the highest degree.

I was listening to free FM [formerly k.rock] tonight and they had this subject, i couldnt help but to call and give'em a piece of my mind. a very interesting thing came up though. sharpton was the first A-hole to start the band wagon about the la cross players who by the way are innocent so lets see him go on O'reily and apologize dont hold your breath folks

And lest we forget....Imus has no listeners. Thats why this took a couple of days to get out to the masses.
