So after his comments about the Rutgers women's basketball team over a week ago, and having to hear everyone pontificate on talk radio and television, I feel compelled to thrown in my two cents worth.
First, who in the hell appointed Rev. Al and Rev. Jesse to be the judge, jury and executioner of anything that offends blacks. Rev. Al has had no credibility since the Tawana Brawley case. Everytime I see that brother, he pisses me off, including the whole thing with Chris Rock's mama at the Cracker Barrel in Murrells Inlet, SC. Come on, Al. They gave the lady free gift certificates, she redeemed them for God's sake, and she still thinks she a victim. Fuck you, Al.
Then there are the rappers who have made it okay to use terms like "hos" and "bitches". Look, my bruthas, I know they can be bitches, but now you should be have your feet to the fire. But don't blame Ice Cube. This former badass rapper has rehabilitated his image. He's currently on a promotional tour of his new family film, "Is It In Yet?" (or sump'n like dat). Ice was a member of NWA or Niggaz With Attidudes in his former gangsta life. Nowadays, he's a movie star pushing his films on "Ellen".
Two weeks ago the girls from Rutgers didn't know who the hell Imus was. They were better off.
If he had been talking about a team of white girls and referred to them as "whores", would it have made a difference? Probably not.
Where is the outrage when Limbaugh, Michael Savage and other conservative talk show hosts make comments like this? Reverend Al won't go there though, proving that you don't have to eat pussy to be one.
Frankly, I didn't like Imus' show, mainly because I like MSNBC's news shows, and their female anchors are kind of hot (not like that skank on FOX or Soledad). So I'm glad he's gone. Now shut the hell up about it before he makes his comeback.
Extra info: Where the hell is Willie B. Hardigan? If you see him, let him know we still care and want him home.
