Why is it such a big deal?

Rappers can talk all day about "nappy headed hos" and nobody says shit. But when a 60-year-old white guy says it, everyone freaks out.

News Flash: There is nothing racist about the phrase "nappy-headed hos." The phrase is sexist -- but not racist at all. Any woman can have nappy hair, and any woman can be a ho. You don't have to be black to have either of those characteristics.

I'm pretty sure the Rutger women are so offended because the truth hurts.

Here we go again, Social Acceptability, if you don't like someones opinions then don't fucking listen to them, it really is that simple.... like I said before "da bruthas er finin ta play da victims", that is all they know, they should share the Lifetime channel with the women, you know "The Victims Channel".... We're equal but we want extra, someone needs to break it to them that equal rights = equal work!

Also anyone that has that one lowlife piece of shit on anywhere instantly losses all credibility, just another fat playa.the finger

The whole fuckin deal would have died a nearly painless and surely a quiet death after he apologized except the usual POSs Jessie Jackson and Al Sharpton weren't about to pass up another opportunity to mug it up for the media and use the whole incident to get some extra face time, all of course in the pursuit of furthering their own agendas ... as usual.

These 2 fuckers might actually garner some sort of plausibilty if they actually managed to speak out against racism as a whole instead of clinging so desperately to the idea that only whites are capable of racism. If they even just once were to speak out about the racism depicted within their own culture towards others their thoughts might have some sort of validity, but ..... I damned sure ain't holdin my breath till anything that rational ever ocurrs from either of these fukstiks. angry

Just another example of political correctness gone wrong. There is no reason a white man should be persecuted for saying the exact same things black people say all the time. If Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton have their way their would be a war between the blacks and whites, which may still be on the horizon somewhere in time. I was always raised to know that words do not harm us in any way, but sooner or later someone will start punctuating their words with bullets and that will be sad.

The reference Imus made the the women's tatoos and general rough-looking nature of the team should be put in place as the context of his statement. Although it was in poor taste I see nothing wrong with it - certainly not racist.

There was also a reference made to the team looking akin to the Raptors, now those are some punk-looking SOB's! Uh-oh, I must be a racist as well.

The way people present themselves outwardly is a key responsibility that seems to be lacking among the black pop community. Having a rough image might be great if you want a hip-hop appeal but it hardly compliments the talents, skills, and trustworthiness of the individuals that decide that image is for them.

alright, being the problem solver that i am, i just figured out how to fix this whole problem... simple, just remove all of the white men from radio and replace them with black men; then eryone on the radio can say anything they want to and eryone can be happy... hell they can have an hour long segment of just saying the 'n' word repeatedly and no one will be offended... they can say the most sexist shit all day long and all the feminist dyke types will only smile and laugh
see problem solved

How come when the Dixie chicks pissed off half their fans those bitches cried foul and not fair!, if Imus pissed of his audience let them decide if they want him or not! fucking MSM is bullshit.

All the shit going on in the world and this is what you keep seeing all over the news, fluff, they don't want to spend time on real issues that would take some thinking, more corporate media propaganda....

And yes I have to mention those two backstabbing fake hoars that fuck "their own people" for there own PROFIT and POWER! Why don't those guys go to the hood and serve some food that they just gave to their people, their suits cost more than the average black guys monthly pay, if you like those guys you are a piece of shit and "you only hurt you never help".

If the blacks don't want to take personal responsibility then Fuck'em, you're not supposed to help people by doing for them, it's called "help" they do it and you help them, not you do it for them but it's still not good enough so they bitch about it.

I Have a Dream"... Profit!

I have no problem with blacks getting rich, that is the American dream, but I have a problem with them doing it with the race card. If it was wrong for white people to get rich off the backs slaves then it should also be wrong for blacks to get rich exploiting racism like Jesse Jackson, Louis Faracant and Al Sharpton do. These 3 people do more to seperate the races than the KKK ever did we the American people in our political correctness help them do it. Martin Luther King would have just faded into obscurity if he had not be killed, now he is a martyr instead of just an activist.

This guy gets it.
Imus isn't the real bad guy Instead of wasting time on irrelevant shock jock, black leaders need to be fighting a growing gangster culture.
By JASON WHITLOCK - Columnist Thank you, Don Imus. You've given us (black people) an excuse to avoid our real problem. You've given Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson another opportunity to pretend that the old fight, which is now the safe and lucrative fight, is still the most important fight in our push for true economic and social equality. You've given Vivian Stringer and Rutgers the chance to hold a nationally televised recruiting celebration expertly disguised as a news conference to respond to your poor attempt at humor. Thank you, Don Imus. You extended Black History Month to April, and we can once again wallow in victimhood, protest like it's 1965 and delude ourselves into believing that fixing your hatred is more necessary than eradicating our self-hatred. The bigots win again. While we're fixated on a bad joke cracked by an irrelevant, bad shock jock, I'm sure at least one of the marvelous young women on the Rutgers basketball team is somewhere snapping her fingers to the beat of 50 Cent's or Snoop Dogg's or Young Jeezy's latest ode glorifying nappy-headed pimps and hos.
I ain't saying Jesse, Al and Vivian are gold-diggas, but they don't have the
heart to mount a legitimate campaign against the real black-folk killas. It is us. At this time, we are our own worst enemies. We have allowed our youths
to buy into a culture (hip hop) that has been perverted, corrupted and overtaken
by prison culture. The music, attitude and behavior expressed in this culture is
anti-black, anti-education, demeaning, self-destructive, pro-drug dealing and
violent. Rather than confront this heinous enemy from within, we sit back and wait for someone like Imus to have a slip of the tongue and make the mistake of repeating the things we say about ourselves. It's embarrassing. Dave Chappelle was offered $50 million to make racially insensitive jokes about black and white people on TV. He was hailed as a genius. Black comedians routinely crack jokes about white and black people, and we all laugh out loud. I'm no Don Imus apologist. He and his tiny companion Mike Lupica blasted me after I fell out with ESPN. Imus is a hack. But, in my view, he didn't do anything outside the norm for shock jocks and comedians. He also of fered an apology. That should've been the end of this whole affair. Instead, it's only the beginning. It's an opportunity for Stringer, Jackson and Sharpton to step on victim platforms and elevate themselves and their agenda$. I watched the Rutgers news conference and was ashamed. Martin Luther King Jr. spoke for eight minutes in 1963 at the March on
Washington. At the time, black people could be lynched and denied fundamental
rights with little thought. With the comments of a talk-show host most of her
players had never heard of before last week serving as her excuse, Vivian
Stringer rambled on for 30 minutes about the amazing season her team had.
Somehow, we're supposed to believe that the comments of a man with virtually no
connection to the sports world ruined Rutgers' wonderful season. Had a
broadcaster with credibility and a platform in the sports world uttered the
words Imus did, I could understand a level of outrage. But an hourlong press conference over a man who has already apologized, already been suspended and is already insignificant is just plain intellectually dishonest. This is opportunism. This is a distraction. In the grand scheme, Don Imus is no threat to us in general and no threat to black women in particular. If his words are so powerful and so destructive and must be rebuked so forcefully, then what should we do about the idiot rappers on BET, MTV and every black-owned radio station in the country who use words much more powerful and much more destructive? I don't listen or watch Imus' show regularly. Has he at any point glorified selling crack cocaine to black women? Has he celebrated black men shooting each other randomly? Has he suggested in any way that it's cool to be a baby-daddy rather than a husband and a parent? Does he tell his listeners that they're suckers for pursuing education and that they're selling out their race if they do? When Imus does any of that, call me and I'll get upset. Until then, he is what he is - a washed-up shock jock who is very easy to ignore when you're not looking to be made a victim. No. We all know where the real battleground is. We know that the gangsta rappers and their followers in the athletic world have far bigger platforms to negatively define us than some old white man with a bad radio show. There's no money and lots of danger in that battle, so Jesse and Al are going to sit it out. To reach Jason Whitlock, call (816) 234-4869 or send e-mail to
