So this dude Imus makes a racial comment about the Rutgers Women’s basketball team calling them “Nappy-headed hoes.” The backlash from this comment was insane, and Imus was fired a week later. Do you guys think this is right? How do you feel about the double standard?
I think it was fucked up to fire the dude over this comment. It is ok for black people to crack jokes on white people all the time, but then the minute a white person does it it’s SUCH a big deal. It just pisses me off. Black comedians especially, all the time, rip on white people…if white comedians talked about black people that way, the FCC would regulate on them too. What about the Duke Lacrosse team? When they were in trial for a rape case against a black woman, Jessie Jackson and Al Sharpton couldn’t keep their fucking mouths shut about how guilty those boys were…yet where is their apology? Imus had to apologize…hmm yeah.
