Chew on that for awhile
So to be clear, what you're saying is that the idiotic and indefensible statements Imus and his EP made were directed specifically at the Black women on the team, and was not meant to include the White women on the team? Furthermore, Wolfeskins is as ignorant bigot and I'm an insensitive something or the other?

AOL's Jason Whitlock- Time for Jackson, Sharpton to Step Down - AOL Sports

Here's a good read about how this whole thing got blown out of proportion.
And check out Jason Whitlock's, the writer of the article, picture at the top if you want to say that he has no frame of reference on this subject.

I have absolutely no clue as to what your point is and how it relates to the post you quoted. Are you disagreeing with me and asserting racism will eventually vanish? Are you agreeing with me that overt racism is not tolerated in public and governmental settings? At what point did I assert the remark in question was anything other than a racist/sexist remark? Are you saying I'm a bigot?

Re: Don Imus

In the context of the entire conversation, which I heard at some point when this story first broke but haven't heard since, I think Imus was joking that the team looked very manly. At one point he said they looked like the Toronto Raptors.
That being said, I think someone could argue that he was talking about the entire team. I personally don't think that he was referring to everyone, but I could see someone thinking that.

Here's a transcript.
There are definitely strong racial aspects to it, but I think he's being sexist more than anything else.

Well, you're just a bigot for thinking that and you should stop hiding behind your computer and take your sh-- kicking like the small-minded white man that you are. Why, I bet you're a skinhead who kicks puppies too (but only the black puppies).

Ha. You better stop hiding behind your computer and take the ass beating I'm going to give you for thinking that I am hiding behind my computer and therefore threatening my with an ass kicking.
Oh dear, I've gone cross-eyed.

I edited my comment to include the transcipt.

thats pretty much all i was trying to say. maybe you just said it better than i did. maybe imus was targeting only the black girls, i don't know. i thought he was targetting the ENTIRE team, which includes some white girls. thats why i brought up the point about the rutgers press conference. not only did the black girls appear on stage and speak at the podium about how their accomplishments have been pushed to the side and what not but so did the white girls on the team. even if imus was joking around, i still think his comment was 100% sexist, i'm just not convinced his comment was racist.

Re: Don Imus

100% PURE WHOOP ASS

I am going to ignore the basic idiocy of the content of your posts because they are so out of line that any reasonable person, black or white or whatever, would just shake their head and move on.

But I will ask you if you realize how poorly your statements are worded and how difficult they are to read with their incessant cursing, non-sensical elipticals and half sentences? Oh and how about every other word being misspelled? For your info, "alot" is actually A LOT. That's two words there buddy. And have ever you even heard of an apostrophe? I think next time you want to make a logical and sensical post on such an important and sensitive subject you should probably take twice as much time and at least try to put some effort into not sounding like a total dimwit. Then at least through all your stupid yelling, asanine whinning and totally ironic threatening you don't come off as completely ignorant.

Re: Don Imus

I really don't understand why people think Sharpton and Jackson represent the entire black community. I mean, do Pat Robertson and Jerry Falwell represent the entire white/christian community? Not all agree with their views. These people are opportunists and self-serving. They have their sycophant supporters which by and large don't include the majority of the community.

On a side note, what do you think should happen when police officers shoot an unarmed black man 50 times which has happened not once but twice? How many times has that happened to a white guy? I personally know of someone who is racist and a cop. Obviously that person can't be just.

My point is someone need to speak up, preferably someone respected and credible.

Whitlock is right on point. If they were appointed they would have been voted out long ago. Unfortunately the media gravitates to Sharpton and Jackson.

Yeah. I kind of wondered why Sharpton and Jackson are the moral hierarchy of the situation.

Granted, Imus was way out of line, I really didn't think he understood the magnitude of what he was saying. This guy is bad, but I don't necessarily know if he's that bad. Maybe he is, I don't really listen to him so I wouldn't know.

I heard someone saying earlier that the guy who owns MSNBC said he made the decision because of the children in the world or something to that effect. This was purely a business decision (advertisers all pulled out), and from what I understand that same guy owns MTV.

I also wonder whether or not MSNBC still has to pay him the remainder of the contract. I'm not sure what he's done was a breach of contract, and a good lawyer may be able to make Imus one rich S.O.B.

Well MTV is part of Viacom, which used to operate CBS as well before they split. MSNBC is part of General Electric

I think as long as there is segegation then raciscm will always exist. It may get better or more may get worse but it is never going to totally go away. That's why I think leaders in all communities need to look for ways to foster relations rather than segregate. It sems perfectly fine if African Americans want to self segregate. Hell they segregate within their own community depedning on tone of skin. But if whites do the same THEN it is racist. Problem is it is racist in both cases.

As for Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton. I have two rather distinct feelings about each of these men and neither is positive.

Al Sharpton- I think Al Sharpton actually believes he is looking out for and leading the black community. I believe his intentions at the heart are pretty noble. But I think he is at his heart a dishonest man and he may even be a racist man. He seems to think it is fine to attack people of other races without impunity and never offer apologies. His treatment of the Duke players is a good example. All the political and racial trappings aside we can probably all agree that had the situation been reversed. Say 3 black Georgetown basketball players had been accused by a white stripper there would be no way have been out front leading the public cruxifiction. In fact I think we could imagine him out front wondering about the alleged victim's character and yelling about all dubious evidence and such. In fact he would be livid and he would be right to be. But once the story started to shift and it became clearer and clearer that these guys were getting railed did he ever come out and say "Hey wait a minute. Maybe we should back off a little?" Did he come out yesterday and say "You know I was too quick to judge and I am sorry" No he has just moved on and forgot all about it. That was a chance to lead. That was a chance to say "Many in the black community, led by me, made a quick judgement of a couple white guys and we were wrong. I am sorry." That kind of statement fosters better relations. That kind of statement leads the black community in a positive way.

Jesse Jackson- As much as I don't like Sharpton I hate Jackson. He is a dishonest and divisive man. He has done more to hurt the African American race than anyone since the 60's. He is a self righteous, self centered, loatheful person who's only real goal is to improve his bank account to the deteriment of the very people he purportedly is trying to help. He makes more money as long as African Americans continue to struggle so he makes sure they continue to. I hate him. I don't hate many people. He is one.
What about Bill Cosby? I think he is a better leader for the black community because he is equally hard on both sides(some may think he is actually tougher on blacks). He realizes both sides have work to do.
