They say evil is as evil does . . . and so it goes with the latest Imus “controversy”.
In truth this is another example of the kind of dimwitted media fabrication that continues to pollute the airwaves and suck up oxygen that belongs to stories with real merit. The creatures that develop and feed on this kind of “trash journalism” have nothing better to do with their time than to criticize books they’re never read, shows/movies they’ve never seen, and comments made by a radio personality whose show they never listen to or know anything about.
I am a long time Imus fan and I happened to have heard both “controversial” comments made by Imus. When he uttered the infamous “nappy headed hoes” comment in April 2007 my reaction was,” I wish he hadn’t said that.” Yesterday was different.
I heard the exchange between Imus and Warner and (like anyone who has been listening to the new format and the show since Imus’ return) I immediately knew what he was referring to . . . and it wasn’t the guy got arrested because he was black. He was talking about racial profiling . . . DWB or driving while black being a real good example. Only a fool would miss this or someone with too much time on their hands! Imagine my shock to find a media uproar about Imus’ observations on Tuesday. My initial reaction was, “give me a break and grow up!!!!!!”
This isn’t about Imus this is about the media continued exploitation of the race issue . . . re-wrapping the topic and shoving more “newsless news” down our throats; trying to drive ratings on the backs of the American people. Has there ever been a group more reprehensible than this group of media morons?
The truth is that since Imus’ return to broadcasting, no one . . . no one has done more to discuss race relations in a open and honest way. I challenge you to find single show or network that has done more. In fact, I challenge you to find a single program on race relations that has been produced by MSNBC, CNN, and the like.
To the fools who continue to comment without having listened to his show since his return, had you listened you’d have found the show has a black producer and two cast members who are black. There have been discussions with Dick Gregory, Sista Patterson, Debra Dickerson, and a host of others whose points of view are rarely (if ever) represented by the MSM.
Like I said, grow up and get a life.
Here’s a postscript. After all this blog is mostly about politics. Know how Obama behaved when Imus made his “nappy headed hoes” comment and the contrast with Rev. Wright? Hmmm?
This one is just for good measure. In case anyone forget, the Imus’ show is part politics, part foolishness, part comedy, as DL understood.
