Political Correctness Gone Awry

I know he wishes he hadn't said it in hindsight. That's what Imus the talkshow host is most sorry about, not what he said. When it's all said and done it not going to be worth what it's going to cost him. At least not initially. I think this incident will ultimately will introduce him to a whole new audience.

About the Imus comment. I agree it was a mistake. A mistake in the fact that he didn't expect it to blow up like it did. Before this came up, most people complaining have never even seen the Imus show. I was reading the interview and the executive producer Bernard McGuirk made the most damaging comments. Which seems to be a history with that team. It was just on the "Imus in the morning show". Because we call somebody a n-word or a nappy headed ho, hopefully doesn't render us being a racist person. It just means you talk too much.If that's the case the majority of Blacks themselves are in trouble. He didn't say anything that hasn't been a running joke in the Black community all the time.

We are experiencing firsthand the effects of having double standards. Blacks think we have a free pass to say what we want, about anybody we want, and it doesn't matter. Then when another race does the same thing. We want to cry foul. I think what's happening here is America is no longer walking on eggshells around Blacks. In a society where everything is allowed. Why wouldn't we expect comments made by us on the regular eventually be repeated by other races. Blacks are no longer the majority minority, so we no longer have that realm to ourselves.

Common,

People need to stop crying. Why do we expect so much more from whites? We call each other the same thing they call us. Imus should apologize and this situation should be dropped. He should not be fired. if you fire him, then you will need to fire rappers and take them off the market. I think a lot of times we become hypocritical.

Imus got caught in the mix. We better hope this doesn't start a trend.
