I don't really care about Don Imus and his whole "Nappy, headed ho's" comment.
He shouldn't have said it.
As a white man he's not in a position to say it.

I read this:

"Sharpton is going to say he should lose his job because he (Imus) disrespected black women. Black leaders all across the country are saying that this is unacceptable. Meanwhile, millions of black kids will come home after school today and watch an hours worth of videos that send them the message that black women aren't worth s^%$. Where are those same black leaders? Yes, they might blah, blah, blah about it, but who among them has called for resignations in the rap industry? Is the message that white men must respect black women but black man don't?"

Hmmmm, still doesn't give Imus the right.
So what if Imus does work with Sickle Cell? It's not a license.

Hypocrisy is not limited to the black community and it's leaders...and let's not pretend that it's the first time we've seen the "do as I say, and not as I do" factor in play.

P.S.: Jesse needs to just shut up on this, lest we mention the "Hymies in NY" incident.
