I can not express how sad I am. Not only sad that one of the greatest radio personalities in history lost his career over one throwaway comment---but also sad of what has happened to the United States of America.
Here are some questions:
Q: How is the term "Ho" considered racial?
Q: Was it "racist" when Imus referred to a white female as a "Ho"? (ie., Paris Hilton, on many occasions)
Q: What would the reaction have been if Imus used "Ho" to refer to the all-white women's golf team at Yale? Would anybody consider this racist?
Q: Webster's Dictionary defines "nappy" as "kinky or frizzy." Where is the racial reference?
Q: Was there an election in which the majority of African-Americans elected Al Sharpton as the official spokesperson for all black people? When was this election held?
Q: Who will fire all the rappers who have used the term "HO" to sell records and make millions of dollars?
Q: Will CBS fire air personality Steve Harvey for his daily comments utilizing humor based on stereotypes of African-Americans? How will we stop Chris Rock, Cedric The Entertainer, D.L. Hughley, Bernie Mac and other comedians from making racial references in their standup comedy routines?
HERE IS THE MOST IMPORTANT QUESTION FOR ALL THE RADIO PERSONALITIES READING THIS: HOW CAN YOU DO A SHOW WHEN YOU ARE CONSTANTLY LOOKING OVER YOUR SHOULDER?
Think about it.
