I really don't have any desire to give Don Imus any more air time. But, I keep thinking the racist comments Imus made put the latest wave of racism in a whole new category. Imus (despite his claims) wasn't trying to be funny, he wasn't provoked, and he wasn't drunk. He and the other guy (speaking of "the other guy"...who was he and why isn't there anything being raised about his comments???) were simply having a conversation.
Though I haven't listened to it in a while, the guys on The Ticket, a morning show on Sportsradio 1310 AM (Dallas) make comments that I would say compare to Imus. Why are we not addressing them???
I liked the comments Mr. Samad made in his column, written for The Black Commentator.
