    Imus said so many offensive things over the years I'm stunned he wasn't fired years ago. That he was fired now was probably the final straw but compared to some other things he's said, including using the N word openly on the air, it definetely raises some questions how this particular incidient was the killer to his career

    I've never even listened to Imus. Ever. However this article nails it and I'm sure Al is working hard to formulate his apology to the Duke lacrosse team as we speak and I'm confident he will go on-air soon to address this.

    :unsure: :tdown:

    this may sound ignorant (and actually it is since I honestly don't know) but, what part of "nappy-headed hos" reffers only to black women? it's insulting sure, but I don't know where the "racial" part of it is :icon_shrug:

    Its a good article about Jason.

    You have to wonder what people do once they achieve their goals.

    Cases in point:

    -The Feminist movement. Right to vote, equal rights, etc.
    -MADD: Lower alchol to .10, decreasing Drunk Driving, increase punishment.

    The Feminist movement achieved the majority of their goals. However now the word "women" is sexist. They attempted to push for "equal" rights in colleges and the workplace by enfocing a manditory quota of males to females.

    MADD achieved their goals, pushed for .08, got that. Their ultimate goal, no alchol in the system at all. Even harsher penalties for offendents. The fact that a 3rd strike DUI is worst than an assualt with a deadly weapon. That if you kill someone while driving drunk is worst than accidentally running someone over (A LOT worst).

    Why do these organizations and people push for more.. Well perhaps its the millions upon millions of dollars they get in donations and government funding (MADD gets a portion of DUI fines). Maybe its because leaders get paid $100,000 a year plus. Perhaps they believe their goals have not been reached.

    I think it might have more to do with the money.

    Lets take a business, computers for example. Would Dell, after supplying just about everyone with a computer, suddendly say "Were done, time to close up shop. We are only going to keep open tech support". No business does that. People are not going to walk away from $100,000s a year and a lively hood just because they got what they wanted.

    This is the problem when you turn a cause into a business. Eventually it becomes more of a business, than a cause.

    That is my two cents.

    None.

    It was spread on the internet and Blog, there wasnt really any mention of it before this happend. People have said the N word, and worst, before. See my article above.

    Frankly I met a lot more white people with "nappy-*** hair"

    He got ripped by Sharpton and Jackson after writing this article:

    http://www.signonsandiego.com/uniontrib/20070415/news_lz1e15whitloc.html

    I've read both pieces. What I particularly liked about about the first (the union-trib link) is that Whitlock said:


    Then Snoop Dogg had the audacity to say "when I rap about women being ho's, I aint talkin' about atheletes." Hypocrite? Hmmm...

    :icon_huh: Gee, that will turn out well. Russia, Cuba, Sierra Leone, 99% chance that ends in an oppressive dictatorship or genocide.

    Or what if nobody was a dictator anymore.

    But I see your point. NO matter who rules your gonna have dictatorhip. Basically its all about some people trying to control who owns what and how much. And usually the dictatorhip likes to hang onto alot.

    Sorry, but you're full of it. Nappy-headed was a reference to them being African American, not to their hair.
