deep

you're full of it

in no way did i ever say it is no big deal to call young black women whores (to me)

you're picking what you want and running with it

taking the fact that i disagree with you

that i don't feel don imus is a racist

and that his show is not racist

and that it's no different than dave chapelle

or jerry seinfeld

ludacris recorded a song called "ho"

in which he disparaged young black women

calling them whores, as you can read in those lyrics

i'm merely pointing out the hypocrisy that lives in all of us

the same hypocrisy in which a company will cave in to the pressure brought on by a man who's actions helped lead to a riot in crown heights that resulted in the death of a jewish student

killed by an angry mob yelling "kill the jew"

another man who once refered to new york as "hymietown"

talking heads put these guys on to tell all of us how racist don imus and his fans are

anti-semites calling others racist

good times, good times

cspan has 6 white guys debating imus' firing

two of them say they should get bill cosby to replace imus

cuddly, non offensive, jell-o pudding eatin' bill cosby

he speaks so well, he doesn't use bad words

now they asked about "that rap music"

asking the black guy first

these fuckers are the real racists

He and Stern can be brothers-on-arms on satellite now, maybe Howard will even end up giving him Beth's ring.
If the media and sharpton did not make this into a media circus and had allowed his original apology to happen the stations would not have lost money.

I agree about the $$. But I wonder how many advertisers would have quietly come back in a few months. . .

I wonder if the crowd clamoring for Imus' firing cared that their actions could have a negative impact on the WFAN telethon going on for SIDS research and the Imus ranch? It was great timing on NBC's part firing him 12 hours before the telethon would have been broadcast around the country. I'm not saying that the firing was right or wrong, but NBC proved to be pretty heartless in their actions.

Hey Justin
I liked what you posted about SittingBull.
it kind of made me think what was wrong with people back then that they would call a human being "greasy savage" and other terrible things

perhaps, it could be the same thing that makes a person call people "nappy headed hos" or even "rapists" when they are not?

But a wrong inditment of the Duke students does not have anything to do with what Imus said or if I say some lies about, well nevermind

BVS. We both believe in God correct. Sharpton is a man of God. He is a Rev. So don't you think he should have preached forgivness instead of hate, which he did. His actions were as bad as Imuses comment.

But he also called for Imuses removal which was not necessary. a suspension was fine.

Well yes it's the media and Al Sharpton-but as far as I know he still doesn't have complete control over the media, in spite of all the power you seem to give him. The media loves this story just like they love the Anna Nicole story-it's something "juicy" and decadent for them to sink their teeth into because it gets ratings. Talking about Iraq doesn't. So it's about money in that way too. And I agree, the advertisers would have probably quietly come back after it blew over.

But ultimately the media didn't say nappy headed hos and all his other comments-Imus did. I don't think firing him does one ounce of anything really worthwhile other than to relieve CBS's guilt over allowing him to get away with so many comments in the past. I suppose perhaps the firing might have a chilling effect on any similar people who might be afraid of losing their jobs.

in the end justin, imus was fired not because of his comments. he was fired becaue he was losing sponsorships. radio execs would employ hitler if he sold ad time. they'd fire ghandi if he made no money.

And so did his employer and sponsors, do they deserve to be called "fuck tards" as well?

Justin, Sharpton is not on the same level of the entire media, you give him way too much credit. He didn't even comment on this until it was already a big issue.

you got some good points there

I have posted that I do not think Imus is a racist

he made a "racist remark"

and has does "racist, bigoted material" of his show.

I have stated I don't think Gibson is an anti-Semite, I reserve those labels for people the take it up as their agenda,

I think we are all capable of bigoted remarks

I am glad I gave you an opportunity to get on the record that you do not believe it is no big deal to call young black women whores.

I don't think the sponsors or employer would have really cared until the shitstorm arrived. They only ousted him because it would have been a bad image for them. But like all stories this would have gone away in a few days and life would have gone back to what we call normal.

Well you are free to think that, but honestly it has nothing to do with Sharpton and your hated is just making you look silly.
