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.


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.

Source Editorial

I was on my way home from visiting family out-of-town, when I caught excerpts from this editorial on Charlie Sykes, 620 WTMJ. The author, Jason Whitlock, is black.

I commend him for speaking honestly about what many blacks will not admit to themselves or anyone else. The single biggest source of racial problems in the US lies squarely in the heart of the black community.

Excellent post TEA.

Having angry, racist, and woman-degrading rap 'music' rhythmically pounded into the heads of impressionable youth and young adults day in and day out will definately have a major negative effect upon them.

Best to take the log out of your own eye before trying to remove the splinter in someone else's ... eh??

rotflmao - Absolutely. The problem is that the apologists have allowed that log to remain firmly implanted. Until they (apologists) stop genuflecting at the altar, the true racists will never practice introspection.
