So I never listen to Imus but started now that he is hot water. “Nappy headed hos” as soon as I heard the replay I let out a big “Doh’!”I knew he would get a smack down but after they had the girls from Rutgers on crying. I knew he was prolly getting fired.He said something very interested this morning. He seems to very resigned to the fact that this was his last week. So he gave me something interesting to chew on. He said he believes he will get what he deserves and prolly then some. What he said was wrong and he will have to face the music. The question he asked is…Will any one make Al Sharpon apologize to Duke, the Lacrosse team or the players that were accused with great venom and victims of malicious prosecution. These peoples live where ruined and Al help ruin them. Imus hurt some feelings and used bad behavior. Which is the greater injustice. Which should be “whoops my bad.” This country is ass back ward.
Here's the thing that scares the shit out of me with the whole Imus deal:If anyone watched his show with any regularity will know that the guy said shit like that multiple times on each and every broadcast.He was "punished" by just recently signing a 5 year / 50 million dollar contract extension with MSNBC.I have no doubt that MSNBC enjoyed the ratings booms that his (previous)outrageous comments sparked, and would wager that they actually encouraged him to be more 'edgy' for the sake of ratings.Then he says one thing that is distasteful (but relatively benign compared to many of his tirades) and all of a sudden it's the end of the freakin' world. Imus didn't cross the line, they arbitrarily moved the line and then fired him for his first offense under the "new rules".Jackson and Sharpton have whipped this into a media frenzy, and now everyone is talking about going after everyone else including musicians, authors, and comedians.As far as I'm concerned, the Reverend Jackson is nothing more that Senator Joseph McCarthy in black-face.Oops, now I've crossed that line. Can you get fired from a blog?
Oh, and I'm still waiting for Jackson to apologize for his "NYC/Hymietown" crack. And Sharpton to apologize for the whole Tawana Brawley debacle.I guess it's fine to be racist as long as you're not white.
Wow, now some Pennsylvania DJ was fired for "premeditated" repeating of Imus's remarks. (Google it--I still can't make blog post links work)Unreal.There are some things in life I was just not meant to understand, and Al Sharpton is one of those.
Al is a convicted drug dealer. Jesse is an adulterer. Don Imus is a boring shitbag. Imus is gone not because of Al or Jesse because noone in their right mind listens to their cries of wolf anymore. He got the boot because those girls at Rutgers got a big press conference and convinced everybody that Imus deserved to get canned.
My Pops is who is a much smarter man than I. He always talked about how Lani Guinier made such a fuss about “The Tyranny of the Majority “ that the pendulum has swung the other way.He wants to publish a book and may even be secretly writing it, who knows with that man. I will prolly find all kinds of weird stuff when he passes. I will then steal it and call it my own. The book will be “The Tyranny of the Minority”. It seems that if you are the majoity you have to walk on egg shells. If you are a minority you can do what ever the fuck and say what ever the fuck you damn well please. If some one calls you on it you throw down the poor imgrant card or slavery card. Then people walk on egg shells and go away.Minorities be careful on the climate you create. You will soon be held to the same principles and restrictions you put on others. A police state will not be good for anyone. My guess is it will actually be worse for minorites. You reap what you sow.
