Re: Don Imus

His comments were not racist, I mean he said the Tennessee girls look good and they have plenty of black players on their team. It's simply a case of a jackass making a derogatory and offensive comment.

If you want to know racist, this is it (watch the end).

You're right. I didn't do a good job defining the word racist.

She's a total idiot and trash. I've always thought that and the vid just confirms it.

I don't think it was a horrible incident (and I'm pretty sensitive to racial issues), but I am certainly not going to argue with you GDAS.
0:25 seconds in:
YouTube - Don Imus Apologizes for Racist Comments (with the comments)

I don't want to defend the guy(s), but it seems like the term was used as a reference to some movie, perhaps (Spike Lee maybe). Unfortunately, I don't get the reference.

What's really ironic is that bitch never finished high school.

She just proves that money does not equal class. I'd be fine with her not finishing high school as I have friends who aren't the best educated, but who are smart and good people. I just can't tolerate idiots and classless trash.
The sad thing is that so many young girls are imitating Paris and that girls like Paris "set women back" by making it cool be appear dumb and irresponsible.

It wasn't Imus that said jigaboos; it was one of the other guys with him. They were trying to reference School Daze - jigaboos (Rutgers) v. wannabes(Tennessee). Imus just agreed, well and called them "nappy-headed hos."

It should be noted that Imus was not alone in this. There was another man in the booth (I think his producer), and I can't be certain who said what. However, they were certainly in agreement.

Imus' statements reflect his attitude and beliefs towards the people whom he described. He (or his producer) called the Rutgers girls "Jigaboos", which is only a very small step away from n*****. I cannot understand how somebody would refer to black people in this manner, without having some negative opinion.

Based on that statement, Imus is racist. He clearly has a negative opinion about those people -- whom he does not know -- simply because of the color of their skin.
Not sure if you know what your talking about. Imus was on a one and one interview with Ail Sharpton when this happened. Can you give us any link to back up whatyoue have stated as fact. There has been nothing in what i have read and that would make this even a bigger deal.

But seriously, this is just getting a little bit out of hand. Didnt anyone ever remember "sticks and stones will break my bones but words will never hurt me."

I mean is it really nessacary to have this team paraded out there for some press conference with the President of Rutgers telling the girls how much his heart goes out to them during such a dark period of their lives..... I don't know, I just think this is all a little much.

i totaly agree with you. i saw some of that press conference earlier today. absolutely rediculous. people are way to sensative. i'm not trying to defend the guy but come on, who really gives a crap.
i also agree with the person that brought up the "double standard" issue. there is definately a double standard in todays society. if it had been a black person who said those comments, this would be a non issue, even if the black person would have said something about an all white team it would still be a non issue.
