I personally think his comments were purely offensive and I don't care that much that he was fired for them.
He called a bunch of upstanding hard working college women ####. Yeah, I can see someone getting fired for that.
What I think is just pure silliness is the outrage by the black community that this is some holier unheard of thing
that is what I'm talking about!
"And many Americans ask: How is it that so many parents are supposed to tolerate the bombardment of our daughters with the most degrading imagery and language? Because it's promulgated by black artists? Huh? A white man says stuff like that, and he must be fired--but a black man can degrade women and himself, and it's "art"? Where's the real racism there? Which man is being treated as beneath our shared values and standards? "
Why are we still talking about race issues in the 21st Century? Because it was embedded into our hard drives for over 200 year going on 400 and we have not upgraded our thinking. We are divided on things that we can't change. There is one race -- the human race -- and the first race of humans began in Africa -- which means brothers and sisters that we are just that -- evolved from the same race. Genocide in Africa is just a means to hide the destruction that was done there and it will happen here one day -- if we don't stop wasting our time hating each other and start focusing on what our leaders are doing to us -- we have a choice -- but we'd rather call each other degrading names and believe that we are protecting our "groups" through self preservation -- If a space ship landed tomorrow with a load of super intelligent beings that look like Squids -- and they wanted to kill humans -- would we support one another then? We could be so much more advanced if we stopped hanging back in the past.
Awesome and very true post!
Imus was actually complimenting the women's team, as tough players, which they were in the NCAA Championship game.
The race card has become the Bower in this euchre game.
