The filth and trashy lyrics of rap and hip-hop routinely degrade women, fostering a hatred and disregard for them. People who routinely listen to this type of so-called music for entertainment, have allowed themselves to accept this form of abuse and degradation towards women, formulating the opinion that women don't matter and can be abused and degraded any time and by any one, so long as they're not white. Most definitely a stance of hypocrsy and a definite bigoted double-standard. For those who smugly and sanctimoniously claimed that what Imus said is in fact different than what rap and hip-hop so-called artists and their talent represent and espouse are delusional and just as guilty as Imus, and guaranteed that the majority of the young tatooed ladies of the Rutgers Team listen to this type of filth and trash on a regular basis and haven't flinched an inch, recoiling from being insulted and denigrated. Difference is Imus is white and most rap and hip-hop "artists" are black. Trash and filth is just that, regardless of who is doing the spewing. And for the likes of Snoop, Gordon, Roker, Sharpton, Jackson, Simmons, etc. to be judging and condemning is disingenuous, hypocritical and blatantly bigoted. The advertisers who pulled out from the Imus Show and NBC and CBS are nothing more than panderers who advocate the bigoted, hypocral double-standard. Now I'd like to see equal treatment of these whiners demanding the firings of all recording "artists", staff at the recording studios, the corporate owners of these studios, the distributors, the retailers, etc. also being fired. Lastly, take this trash and filth away from the young. By allowing it to continue withint the community as a whole, children are being taught it's normal and acceptable to abuse and degrade women. It's pathetic that none of the routinely affected women remain meek and quiet while they're being ripped to shreds by their own kind within their own family. It's a cop-out to single Imus out for what he foolishly and thoughtlessly said. This was an insidious euphemistic lynching. So much for equality and free speech, both of which really suffered the most.
