Imus Sent To Penalty Box For Two WeeksTopics: Follies of the Mainstream Media
I agree with Dan Riehl, Imus' kowtowing to Sharpton and Jackson is simply pathetic. Enough of this kind of crap. And besides, what's wrong with the "nappy-headed hos" comment, anyway. It's called entertainment, Al and Jess!
Sharpton and Jackson never heard or saw an issue that they couldn't feel offended over. They just love the race card, it's their only bread and butter. Without working to keep Black Americans in the distant past, these characters wouldn't have such a lucrative present.

High definition flat panel TV - $4,800.00
Plush Lazy-Boy chair - $1,200.00
Bottle of Oban 12 year-old Single Malt Whiskey - $48.00
Sitting down comfortably to watch "nappy-headed" welfare pimp Al Sharpton feigning outrage over his "tattoed nappy hos," playing the race card, and ripping a fawning, repentant, Imus headed for "political correctness rehab." - Priceless!
For all other pathetic displays surrounding this farce, there is Master Card.

Once again we view a cringing white "celebrity" whining, groveling, apologizing and accepting heaps of humiliation from racist police nazis like Sharpton and Jackson.
Why is everyone afraid of black racists?
If you watch television you can't miss the fact that they are practicing black racist domination in every commercial and sitcom. Wake up. Take a look. Watch commercials for two hours. Count the number of commercials that are totally black or have black actors in them. It ranges from 60-90% per hour. How can that be right? Blacks are only 10% of the population. Where are Asiam, Hispanics and even American Indians. Television is black racism's platform. Look at the movies, its the same there. Watch sitcoms, over the shoulder, in the background of every outside shot there is a black male with a white females. Why do they stage it that way? It's racist domination conditioning. Only the blacks get two racist months strictly devoted to glorifying Africanism, every year. There is Martin Luther King Month, Black History month and one other. There are no months for Celts, European origined Americans are anybody but blacks. Who gets all the affirmative action handouts, blacks? I could go on and on. We dont owe those parasites a living. Neither should we allow them to be the only group in America that can segregate itself. Where are the white Miss Black America's? Every college campus has several segregated black racist organizations. They are black nazis and yer we let them push us around as they bluster around as racial police. American men, where are your guts ? Where is your pride in yourself?

Jacksigil gives me an idea. We need a "White Pride" day.

On the lighter side of this farce, here is a
comment made by a notorious black "Rapper" about the recent Imus incident:
"Me and my niggers are insulted that whitey cracker Imus would call our "Hos" "nappy headed Hos"! It is an outrage! What did the racist pig expected our Hos to do, wear hair relaxant before the game?!?! It would have dripped into their eyes while playing, with all the damn sweating! The fool! (Gotta make this into a rap song and sell 10 million copies to middle-class, whitey, black-wannabe, incipient gangsta-rappers, with an identity crisis!)"
(Don't get all uptight like Sharpton now. It's just a joke)

I believe that we need to keep in mind that many of these outraged Afro-Americans in the Imus flap were the very same in the Duke Rape Case. Given the drastic change of events in the Duke Rape Case, we could look at the Sharpton barrage as damage control. Specifically, the Afro-American community needs to bring Imus' faux pas to the forefront of the American media in order to drown out the egregious nature in which the Sharpton's of American defamed three affluent White students at Duke University.
As for the Rutgers case, clearly, Sharpton is overplaying his cards. Second, to make the statement that a band of Freshmen at Rutgers are composed of honor students ... well, I would like to see their grades and what courses these Freshmen were enrolled in. When that statement was uttered, I had a bad feeling that the Rutgers Basketball team was being played. Unfortunately, Rutgers could really take a hit here over future enrollments. Clearly, the statement by the Basketball coach was no advertisement for Rutgers. I would amplify, but there exists no need.
The words that Imus employed were not so grave as to warrant the current backlash. I watched the NCAA tournaments (both men & women). I saw the Rutgers team. Some Rutgers players did adorn tattoos, and their heads ... by they way that they wore their hair-holders ... gave the players the appearance of being loppy-headed. As far as the word "Ho," this is a word that the Afro-American community (men & women) exchange routinely ... more in jest that anything meaningful. Maybe what is needed is for the Afro-American community to police their own vocabulary rather than defame Imus for co-opting it on his show.
With the foregoing, I can only conclude that the Afro-American community has sounded the panic button over their handling of the Duke Rape Case ... and fear reprisals. Truly, the Afro-American community lost Big Time in the eyes of all Americans when the handling of the Duke Rape case was revealed. The Afro-American community may never recover from the fallout from the Duke Rape case.
Please understand that I am not supporting Imus. Unfortunately, I had the misfortune of spending of few hours at the international airport in Guam with Imus. Back then, I could tell that this fellow was cruising for a bruising. Whatever happened to Imus was on course to happen sooner or later.
If we are to judge Sharpton's behavior, let us watch his handling of the Duke Rape case ... let us see if he offers an apology!

Great commentary, Harry. And right on, as usual.
I'm not a fan of Imus and, like you, I'm not supporting him. Actually, I don't even like the son of a bitch. But what he said should nave been considered just bad taste and nothing more.
Sharpton and Jackson? They are the true nappy headed hos - little more than extortionists.
And yes, the Afro-American community may never recover from the fallout from the Duke Rape case.
