Crazy Asian People
What saddens me most about the Imus firings is...
Oh we aren't talking about that anymore?
...Asian killer? He's ASIAN!? Jesus that's nuts. Ok let me just backtrack for a second. Imus:
Yes Al Sharpton is a vile knee-jerk reactionary, but I was deeply disappointed with several otherwise savvy white talkers out there.
First of all, the immediate comparison to what Imus says and to what "rappers say" is an insult to your intelligence as well as mine. I don't listen to rap music all the time of course, but I've never once heard a rapper refer to the Rutgers women's basketball team as anything derogatory.
I have heard rappers address sorts of women in a derogatory fashion, especially any women who would possibly sleep with them (meaning the rappers are just as low as the women they deride, that would be IRONY). Trying to compare him to the unnamed black rapper is vaguely racist in and of itself.
Secondly, Imus pretty much was a racist, and its more likely they fired his ass--not for his statement--but because of the sad, pathetic, and racially charged apology he offered up afterwards, and also because of the testament of his coworkers who all admitted to him calling people niggers in real life.
I'm looking at your dumbass Kerry.
In conclusion, the real enemy is not a racist old man, but a lonely/crazy Asian boy with a high powered machine gun/hammer
