  • Imus In The Morning

    Well, the big guy is no longer on the air! CBS announced a few ago that Don Imus has been fired for his inappropriate comments on last week's program.

    Too bad, so sad!

    CBS and MSNBC have tolerated his antics for many years and reaped the financial benefits of the IMUS shows idiocy and they have acted with hypocricy over this misfortune.

    I am certain he will be back somewhere soon. After all, Howard Stern survives on Cirrius.
    Be courteous to all, but intimate with few, and let those few be well tried before you give them your confidence!

    Hmm, I've never heard of Imus. Who is he? And what did he do?

        They had to fire him, Rev's Sharpton and Jackson & Co. were going to plan protests literally right outside their CBS/MSNBC offices.

        I'm against what he said and it is a bit extreme to fire him. He apologized and everyone should move on. Others have done far worse.

        Too much liberal media doing the talking when the exec's of these two companies should have told Sharpton and Jackson & Co. to go screw themselves.

          If they fired him, they need to fire almost every actor, on almost every sitcom, comedy show, radiocast, etc. etc. who make fun of whites, African-Americans, Asians, Central and South Americans. Or maybe we should just limit what everyone says, and eliminate free speech completely. What he said was stupid, no doubt, but there are a million other people (from John Stewart on the Daily Show, almost every rapper popular today, Carlos Mecia for example) who say things about minorities, whites and especially woman that PALE in comparison. Yet, inexplicably, and I say that with alot of sarcasm, no one says a damn thing.

            How about Michael Irvin who made a racist comment about Tony Romo? He said that Romo must be part black and that he's sure Romo's grandmother was getting it on with slaves back in the day.

            Remember that? Of course you don't. Nobody said boo about it.

              Doing ANYTHING just to avoid Shaprton and Jackson is stupid in the extreme. You give them legitmacy when you bow to them like that.

              The only people he needs to apologize to is the Rutgers team he insulted.

              Sharpton and Jackson should be told to pound sand.
              For every one hundred men you send us,
              Ten should not even be here.
              Eighty are nothing but targets.
              Nine of them are real fighters;
              We are lucky to have them, they the battle make.
              Ah, but the one. One of them is a warrior.
              And he will bring the others back.

                Honestly, he should have been fired years ago for not being funny. Maybe now they can get somebody good on the radio to take his place. Larry Elder would be perfect.


                As far as his statements go, what the heck. Not only were they offensive, they weren't even remotely true.
                "Respect for religion must be reestablished. Public debt should be reduced. The arrogance of public officials must be curtailed. Assistance to foreign lands must be stopped or we shall bankrupt ourselves. The people should be forced to work and not depend on government for subsistence." - Cicero, 60 B.C.

                  'nuff said...

                  Imus isn’t the real bad guy
                  Instead of wasting time on irrelevant shock jock, black leaders need to be fighting a growing gangster culture.
                  By JASON WHITLOCK - Columnist (Kansas City Star)

                  Thank you, Don Imus. You’ve given us (black people) an excuse to avoid our real problem.

                  You’ve given Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson another opportunity to pretend that the old fight, which is now the safe and lucrative fight, is still the most important fight in our push for true economic and social equality.

                  You’ve given Vivian Stringer and Rutgers the chance to hold a nationally televised recruiting celebration expertly disguised as a news conference to respond to your poor attempt at humor.

                  Thank you, Don Imus. You extended Black History Month to April, and we can once again wallow in victimhood, protest like it’s 1965 and delude ourselves into believing that fixing your hatred is more necessary than eradicating our self-hatred.

                  The bigots win again.

                  While we’re fixated on a bad joke cracked by an irrelevant, bad shock jock, I’m sure at least one of the marvelous young women on the Rutgers basketball team is somewhere snapping her fingers to the beat of 50 Cent’s or Snoop Dogg’s or Young Jeezy’s latest ode glorifying nappy-headed pimps and hos.

                  I ain’t saying Jesse, Al and Vivian are gold-diggas, but they don’t have the heart to mount a legitimate campaign against the real black-folk killas.

                  It is us. At this time, we are our own worst enemies. We have allowed our youths to buy into a culture (hip hop) that has been perverted, corrupted and overtaken by prison culture. The music, attitude and behavior expressed in this culture is anti-black, anti-education, demeaning, self-destructive, pro-drug dealing and violent.

                  Rather than confront this heinous enemy from within, we sit back and wait for someone like Imus to have a slip of the tongue and make the mistake of repeating the things we say about ourselves.

                  It’s embarrassing. Dave Chappelle was offered $50 million to make racially insensitive jokes about black and white people on TV. He was hailed as a genius. Black comedians routinely crack jokes about white and black people, and we all laugh out loud.

                  I’m no Don Imus apologist. He and his tiny companion Mike Lupica blasted me after I fell out with ESPN. Imus is a hack.

                  But, in my view, he didn’t do anything outside the norm for shock jocks and comedians. He also offered an apology. That should’ve been the end of this whole affair. Instead, it’s only the beginning. It’s an opportunity for Stringer, Jackson and Sharpton to step on victim platforms and elevate themselves and their agenda$.

                  I watched the Rutgers news conference and was ashamed.

                  Martin Luther King Jr. spoke for eight minutes in 1963 at the March on Washington. At the time, black people could be lynched and denied fundamental rights with little thought. With the comments of a talk-show host most of her players had never heard of before last week serving as her excuse, Vivian Stringer rambled on for 30 minutes about the amazing season her team had.

                  Somehow, we’re supposed to believe that the comments of a man with virtually no connection to the sports world ruined Rutgers’ wonderful season. Had a broadcaster with credibility and a platform in the sports world uttered the words Imus did, I could understand a level of outrage.

                  But an hourlong press conference over a man who has already apologized, already been suspended and is already insignificant is just plain intellectually dishonest. This is opportunism. This is a distraction.

                  In the grand scheme, Don Imus is no threat to us in general and no threat to black women in particular. If his words are so powerful and so destructive and must be rebuked so forcefully, then what should we do about the idiot rappers on BET, MTV and every black-owned radio station in the country who use words much more powerful and much more destructive?

                  I don’t listen or watch Imus’ show regularly. Has he at any point glorified selling crack cocaine to black women? Has he celebrated black men shooting each other randomly? Has he suggested in any way that it’s cool to be a baby-daddy rather than a husband and a parent? Does he tell his listeners that they’re suckers for pursuing education and that they’re selling out their race if they do?

                  When Imus does any of that, call me and I’ll get upset. Until then, he is what he is — a washed-up shock jock who is very easy to ignore when you’re not looking to be made a victim.

                  No. We all know where the real battleground is. We know that the gangsta rappers and their followers in the athletic world have far bigger platforms to negatively define us than some old white man with a bad radio show. There’s no money and lots of danger in that battle, so Jesse and Al are going to sit it out.

                    Ofc 129,

                    I like the article you found. Very compelling and very true.

                    It is apparent that the black leaders of today, are not the ones of yesterday. Their agenda$, and their egos as some one put it finely, have gotten in the way of their movement. Even their own organization, the NAACP has lost its muster would rather pick fights with states showing a Confederate flag rather than help educate the very people they represent and move forward.

                    The "gansta" culture, in its infinite wisdom will continue down its merry ways and drive the black population down with them. Their wanting for economic and social equality will never be achieved if they continue to listen to these ethnic organizations, egotistical leaders of their community who are out to promote an agenda rather than assist its people.

                        1) Imus is an equal opportunity hater. He talked smack about EVERYONE. Despite his embracing the odd good cause, it made him really annoying and I for one won't miss him a bit
                        2) Al Sharpton's treatment of Stephen Pagones in the Tawana Brawley mess should disqualify him from talking bout other folks FOREVERMORE
                        3) This is yet another tempest in a teapot foisted upon us by the media. Bread and circuses while Rome burns.

                              very good article.

                              Now my two cents...
                              the producer of the show is the one tht FIRST said hos, imus followed up with nappy head......

                              now Jesse and Al are on a witch hunt, and they got the head. Sadly, their heads are the ones that should be rolling. the comment was very edgy and not in real life- however, the reaction that these two give (each and every time) was of course over the top and drama filled.

                              Sadly yet again, These two that are over the top for fighting the white man- live in the neighborhoods of the people they fight- NOT the pepople they attempt to represent.
