Default Don Imus got canned

Now if only people protested rappers and others who make their money using the same language he did, we might get to the real root of the problem.

he was fired because advertisers were pulling out... the only reason why he was on the air so long with not great ratings was the high advertisement dollars his show had...

Micheal Ray Richardson got canned for saying a lot less and Mike had made a tremendous comeback from all sorts of problems. He might not be able to get decent job ever again. Someone will eventually pick up Imus' wannabe-Stern ass. Maybe Imus shouldn't have gone for the double whammy and said something both somewhat racist and sexist.

Makes you wonder why rappers are selling out and making music for white people in hopes of getting paid.

Rappers selling out harder than Tiger Woods?

Well, I am what you ignorantly refer to as "white", and I do not buy that horrific noise known as rap, so there's a start. And how does one stup? Good call though, I did not realize that white people buying these albums was the issue, I thought it was the violent and misogynistic lyrics. Thanks for clarifying

Shut up. How is Tiger Woods a sellout? Jimi Hendrix, BB King, Robert Johnson, Muddy Waters, and Bob Marley all must be sell outs, huh? Music, like all art, is universal. We are all allowed to enjoy and appreciate it because we are all human beings. Get your head out of your ass.

This is stupid. Someone calling someone else a "nappy headed ho" should be the LEAST of our worries. We need to start worrying about all these illegal aliens coming in here and causing chaos and trying to take over our government.

Actually hip hop sales are down 20%, so somebody's getting fed up with the way hip hop has gone.

It doesn't matter whether or not YOU buy rap albums. The fact is that the majority of hip-hop album consumers are white.

The majority of people in America are white...you're point is?

It seems as if you're blaming white people for racism and sexism...

Rappers continue to put out the "horrific noise" you dont support because other white people support it. Money in their pocket. And white record execs continue to employ rappers who create "horrible noise and violent/misogynistic lyrics" because it also puts money in their pockets.

Need more clarification kid? Didnt think so...use your brain
