Ok, please merge this if theres already a thread, but I didn't see one. I find this whole issue so rediculous. I mean, you watch that kind of show so expect that kind of talk. That's like if someone watched Jerry Springer and sued him because his show is offensive, or the same with Howard Stern. His comments were offensive, but people take stuff too far anymore.

So this guy says what can be argued as a racist comment, and everybody jumps his back. WTF is wrong with people today? Especially WTF is wrong with Americans, since I guarantee you that you don't see this kind of circus anywhere else.

Imus gets fired over saying something that every black rapper and a heck of a lot of black commedians say every day. Jackson and Al Sharpton are probably among the biggest assholes and hypocrites that I can think of. When Jackson screws up, he seeks forgiveness but refuses to forgive Imus even though he appologized..... What the heck else does he want, to pay conpensations? Sharpton is also a big asshole. He says "anti semetic" comments on his radio show all the time, and nobody gives a fuck. Why are comments that seem racist towards black more "valuable"? Why do they have higher ground? And if they are so "anti racism" why don't they protest about the US Nazi Party or the Arian Broderhood?

Now lets talk about the pansy little "hoes" that wouldn't shut their pie holes over this. Scared for life? Geez, how dare they say they were scared for life over this? How can anyone be scared for life over an insult that comes from a radio host who talks comedy/satire/sarcasm? When you fight in Iraq and come home without a leg, then your scared for life, but not when somebody insults you. Chris Rock does this all the time, I don't see anybody giving a crap about that.

Black movement leaders should stfu about this civil rights crap because this is going too far. As long as their own community is talking like this, and not to mention this kind of language originated in the black community, don't punish others for doing the same. The black community should call for better and wiser people to represent them. Not these hypocritical scumbags.

Either have the same standards for all or don't have them at all. This double standard crap has to go.

Sure what Imus said was disrespecting, but so what? Should he get fired over it? Heck no. People that are insulted shouldn't listen, instead of making a whole circus over this. Especially when there are double standards involved.

A good example of this is Jeremy aka Teh Pwnter being insulted and making a whole circus after somebody calls him a noob.

I agree. It really is going too far, especially given that its the same thing black rappers and such say all the time. I haven't followed the whole controversy though, so what did he say? From the articles i read, it looked like he just called them whores. At the same time, it isn't right for Imus and people to be going on like that either.

I've never seen a group of people flip out so much over a single word. If you let a word effect you that much you clearly have mental issues.

I found this fantastic email reply to CNN today, great writing. [sic] I strongly feel that if Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson really want to help their people, then they should do more to help solve the many problems that are facing them. Sharpton and Jackson's energy and focus should be directed toward black rappers who are doing untold harm to the black community. As they work on that they need to help solve drug-selling and using, which is rampant in the black neighborhoods. I feel as many people do that Sharpton and Jackson use the black people more than they help them. Actually, I compare what the black leaders are doing to what Congress does most of the time, which is next to nothing. Instead of really addressing issues and finding solutions to problems, they spend their time chasing after frivolous events that wind up helping no one. It really is disgraceful and seems pretty apparent to me that what we have here is business as usual with no end in sight. [sic] Well said, he deserves a place in congress for this!! :bows:

I have nothing for comtempt for both sides of this issue..

IMUS is a Good Ole Boy. That's why he's there, he's not sorry for what he's said he's trying to preserve his job ans with sponsers pulling out of association with him and his radio show he's constrained to try and fix the problem..

BUT HE"S A SHOCK JOCK. these people get on the air and hit you with the things that are contraversial. It's his job. With his atitude it makes it possible for the "race card" poker players to continue to trump society with the race issue with continued acts such as his.

Jesse James and that other...idiot bashing Imus are anything but Christian. They're not showing any forgiveness, which Christ showed. and since we can't judge a person hearts condition...if someone appologizes it's within the intrest of peace to accept the appology and stand down untill he offers further offense.

Sharpston was purposely antagonizing this man. Why incite another incident? Like Michael Richards did he may have some bad feelings underneath the skin...but you can't explain why...let them be conseled and penalized but stop milking this for the media blitz that it is.
