When Imus was fired for his controversial statement about the Rutgers women’s basketball team Jesse Jackson went on a campaign to get the N word removed from that rap music stuff.
Jackson said the use of the “n” word and others in rap music are just as bad as the racist comments that got shock jock Imus fired.
Jackson also blames record companies.
Now Jesse Jackson was caught on tape not only saying he wants to cut Obama’s “Nuts” off but he always called Obama the N word. Ahhh snap, that’s interesting.
Al Sharpton spoke out stating:
“I think this certainly does not reflect the Reverend Jackson that we all know and love,” Sharpton said. “I think that we have to be consistent. We have denounced the N-word at National Action Network and other groups. Those of us and many of us who have used it privately†said we must refrain from it if we’re going to challenge people using it publicly.”
This isn’t a race thing to me, this is about right and WRONG. That damn hippity hop ruins everything.
Don Imus has once again injected race into his radio show. During an on-air conversation Monday about the arrests of suspended Dallas Cowboys cornerback Adam “Pacman” Jones, Imus asked, “What color is he?”
Told by sports announcer Warner Wolf that Jones is “African-American,” Imus responded: “There you go. Now we know.”
Civil rights leader Al Sharpton issued a statement calling the exchange disturbing “because it plays into stereotypes.” He says his National Action Network was still deciding how to respond.
Oh no not again… Here we go again.
Eight months ago, Don Imus was criticized as racist, targeted for daily protests and forced from the airwaves over remarks about the Rutgers women’s basketball team.
But on Monday, Imus returns to radio, completing a comeback that seemed improbable at the height of the uproar back in April over his calling the players “nappy-headed hos.”
