MSDNC drops simulcast of Don Imus show
Network apologizes to Rutgers women's basketball team for racial remarks


I don't know whether to say Hurrah! or Seig Heil! I am not a big fan of political correctness and I am not a big fan of somebody losing their job because they said something really stupid. If so, we could all probably look forward to losing our jobs or scholarships tomorrow.

But on the better side, this scandal is bringing to light all the (c)rap music that denigrates women calling them "hoes" or "bitches" or calling black women something worse than "nappy headed".

I didn't like the one comment by one of the Rutgers players yesterday that said she was scarred for life.

For life? Men who lose a leg in war are scarred for life. Children who lose both parents when they are young are scarred for life. Women who are raped are scarred for life. I don't believe that certain player whose team went on to play in a historic national championship is scarred for life. I think that one player trivialized the offense.

Sorry, you cannot convince me otherwise.

On top of that you have Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson fighting for the position of 'King Of All Black People'.

Somebody could have told Imus that going on Sharpton's radio show would not have made any difference because Sharpton and Jackson smell blood in the water - they were not going to let anybody get away with an apology or contrition on such a hot issue they can exploit.

Sharpton and Jackson think they are the Kings of blacks in America, and they are not going to let anybody forget it either. Pity the fool, black or white, that gets in the way of their agenda of self-importance.
