Default So If Imus Would Have Just Said "Straight-Haired H*res", Would Rap Be Off The Hook?

...cause we know rapper don't say such proper sh*t.

Maybe then, mainstream could focus on those surbanite white kids, and why the double standard exist that they can say those types of comments during one of their alcohol-binge frat parties but Imus can't do the same on a national radio program.

And after that, maybe the medai can focus on why a majority of white America have a backlash against Sharpton and Jesse Jackson for not taking up protest for their outrage. I mean, if they do for the blacks, then dammit, they sure-as-hell should be doing it for the whites.

Great job. You just broke down the reason everyone was offended: no one gives a **** what the **** you say during an alcohol-binge at a party. Instead, Imus the Doofus, maligned an entire group of hard working girls who have been no problem to anyone. Not only that, he did it live during one of what should have been the most special moments of their lives. Now because of Imus, they'll never get to think of how much they accomplished in basketball, they'll think of being called "nappy-headed hos" by a wanna-be Howard Stern political shock jock.

I'm sure if it was your kid on the court that was getting trashed on by someone who had never met them, and using their race against them to do it, you'd be fine with it.. Right?
