    So what are your opinions on this whole Imus ordeal?

    I think that, yea, what he said was wrong, but Al Sharpton is just being a bitch about it. I don't listen to the show at all, but that is bullshit that he is being pushed to resign or be fired.

    here's a link in case you don't know wtf i'm talking about:
    MSNBC, CBS take Imus off air - CNN.com

    EDIT: This applies to all forms of political correctness, not just this incident.


    So someone says something in a country where speech is protected, and people want him suspended, fired, hung, whatever else? If you don't like what someone has to say, don't listen to it!! If enough people agree with you, he'll be out of a job because of simple supply and demand.

    But these people basically want him out of a job just because they don't agree with him. They're essentially forcing their own views onto him, and the rest of us. They say his words are hateful... Isn't insisting on ones financial ruin because their words don't agree with yours make you even more hateful?

    it's because he's white. if he as black, it wouldn't have been an issue.

    just like how white peole can't say nigger, but blacks can.

    Imus is old as fuck and should be retired, this is a pointless arguement.

    I did like the interview with Sharpton though, VERY interesting......I like when he calls himself a cracker and Al wont let it fly :lol:

    Al Sharpton is a wart on the asshole of society. And so is Imus. I love it when two liberals try to eat each other.

    Finding Twana Brawley in a garbage bag full of feces in Crown Heights was the best thing that ever happened to that dick head.

    If god gave NYC an enema he would put the tube in Sharpton's mouth.

    Ho's? All this for knappy hair and hoes?

    Shit, black rappers talk about hoes and much more everyday - you don't see Al Sharpton cracking down on that either.

    Granted, Imus is old as fuck and probably shouldn't be on the air anyway, but hey - its his show.

    Lets not justify this kind of disrespect to atheletic, female college students. Let us instead try to villify those that carry on the behavior with fan-getting results (Lets start attacking those fuckin rappers)

    Literally attacking, or figuratively attacking? I'm up for both.

    From my black friend Rico, this morning:

    "If Imus were black, would anyone have even noticed? It's a double standard."

    exactly. Movies, music, tv shows... comics.. everyone says shit but none of them get into a huge uproar when they say something. The Imus show is entertainment, its suppose to be humorous... Nick Dipalo says WAY worse shit than that...

    Screw Al Sharpton. Im for Imus. Sure he's old, he wishes he was a cowboy, but the man does some really good things.
