P.S. 10 to 1 odds you're black or want to be.

10 to 1 odds you are wrong on both assertions. If you want to be myopic, that is your choice.

If you think the guy should lose his job because of one comment, you're a ****ing idiot.

Quoted for truth.


He sounds like another typical uneducated tool who fails to comprehend the concept of "free speech" and the fact that "free speech" is not only the speech that YOU individually agree with.

One Question: Why is it a national issue if a black womens' team being called names is a national issue but when the same guy promotes mass genocide of Arabs, no one care?

Are black Americans better than Palestinian Arabs? Or is an injustice only a injustice if it is against you?

That is a very fair question. As I said earlier, racism of any kind is unacceptable to me.

Palestinian Arabs were never slaves in this country. Nor have they ever been systematically oppressed for nearly a hundred years after they were freed.

In the Jemele Hill thread, you'll find that Jackson called New York, Jew York.

And yet he's still allowed to have an authoritative role in the black community. I guess the standards they hold themselves up to is somewhat lower.

this isn't the first time Imus has said something racist about blacks as well and certainly not anything in bad taste. This is the same guy who said Venus and Serena are monkeys and should be in National Geographic

All the topic starter has proven is that nobody made an outrage when he insulted Arabs (and other groups like cancer survivors). All that proves is that nobody complained and that he obviously never apologized since he wasn't taken to task on it which brings into question the credibility of any of his apologies. Of course, you're gullible as hell if you believe any of them and don't see that it's just damage control

If the Arab community was so offended, tell them to stand up for themselves.

I did not know that, and I would agree that if he really did say that, he should be held accountable. Racism in any form is unacceptable.

That kind of hate is just pathetic.

There is no room for individual circumstance in this statement. Bigots like to lump people into groups. so they can throw generalizations at them just like you did there. You are not much different than any other white racist except you didn't say "But one of my best friends is white". You telling me that if a group of black guys surround a couple of white folks, and spit on them and call them crackers and white b!tches, that even that sh!t can't be seen a racist?

And what does that have to with the US? At least the Arabs 'have' their own country. If your black in this country you can barely even trace your own roots.
