SAY WORD! | NBC NEWS DROPS THE DON IMUS SHOW LIKE IT’S HOT
By Led Black
God don’t like ugly and that cantankerous, racist old goat Don Imus sure is ugly. NBC News has decided to drop the Don Imus talk show a week after he referred to the Rutger’s University women’s team as “nappy-headed hoes.” CBS Radio, which is the main employer of Don Imus, has suspended him for two weeks and is being pressured to cut their ties to Imus as well. In my opinion, NBC News did the right thing by giving him the axe because his comments were deplorable and are beyond the pale of what should be considered acceptable. I also think that the vile manner in which he referred to the young women and the furor that resulted from it has robbed the team of enjoying their great accomplishment of coming in second in the N.C.A.A. tournament, they were not supposed to get that far. Presidential hopeful Senator Barack Obama weighed in on the debate with the following; “He didn’t just cross the line,” Mr. Obama said in an interview with ABC News. “He fed into some of the worst stereotypes that my two young daughters are having to deal with today in America.” By the way, this is not the first time Don Imus has let some foul stuff come out of his mouth, he once referred to respected black journalist, Gwen Ifill, as a “cleaning lady.” I, for one, am not sad to see him go. Bye-bye Imus – good riddance!!! Let us know what you think.
