Hi Ho, Hi Ho, It's Off To Protest We Go

It's Easter Monday. I should be spending my day off by relaxing on the couch. I shouldn't be so annoyed, but this story (and the people involved in it) just won't go away.

NEW YORK - Even as he scheduled an on-air meeting with radio host Don Imus, the Rev. Al Sharpton said he still wants Imus fired for his racially charged comments about the Rutgers University women's basketball team.

Can we please stop calling Al Sharpton "Reverend?" Most Reverends I know aren't race-baiting, money-hungry a-holes.

"Somewhere we must draw the line in what is tolerable in mainstream media," he said. "We cannot keep going through offending us and then apologizing and then acting like it never happened. Somewhere we've got to stop this."

Hold on there, Baba Looey! So, you're saying that the African-American community - for which you claim to speak - will not accept an apology after they have been wronged? Nice to know. I guess that puts a damper on your request for Reparations now, doesn't it?

The broadcaster said Wednesday during his nationally syndicated program that members of the mostly black Rutgers team were "nappy-headed hos."
"That's some rough girls from Rutgers," Imus said. "Man, they got tattoos ... ."

"Some hardcore hos," McGuirk said

"That's some nappy-headed hos there, I'm going to tell you that," Imus said.
Gee, I can't imagine why Imus is in trouble. (/Sarcasm)

Almost immediately after the comments, the usual suspects came out of the woodwork: Sharpton, Jackson, and even that racist hack Stephen A. Smith. Listening to Stephen A. Smith rip someone else about being a racist is like listening to Rosie O'Donnell tell a woman she's too fat. Physician, heal thyself!

Look, Don Imus is an idiot. I, for one, thought this was common knowledge. Why anyone would be offended by something this dope says is beyond me. The comments were inane, but who cares what a lousy radio broadcaster/former coke-head thinks? He's pond scum!

I agree Imus should apologize; but he should apologize for not being funny . . . ever!
