That remark by Imus is highly reprehensible to call it the least.

I feel really sorry for the likes of NK from NY who thinks what is happening right now to Imus (Climbing down his white horse) is taking it too far........
Yes it's true that some black rappers and artist use derogatory words against their own kind and even pass these on to younger folks who freely call themselves Niggers, we must recognize that the context and setting of Imus remark and self deprecation by black folks are not the same at all. While our black brothers try to reduce the effect of hundreds of years of slavery and its everlasting psychological torture they experience everywhere they turn, they try to use the most nasty of those words on themselves before someone else use it against them hence eliminating its potency. It is what psychologist would call reverse psychology. However hell would be let loose when people of a different race use same words against them. That was why Black community leaders rose to the occasion.
Somebody said Imus should be cut a break. He was the one that had the mega, super mike who ought to have used it with caution but chose not to. Unlike in Nigeria, where the president of the country can slap a citizen and nothing happens, it is good enough to know that American still live true to its creed that noone is powerless.
In this case I say capitalism has risen to the occasion and did what the press can not do. Long live free market. Now that justice seems to have taken its cause, the young women can go about their businesses shoulders high without the fear that they would be vilified

I disagree with Imus remarks, but one has to say there is a creditabilty in what he said about him not using words that has not been used by the black commmunity themselves. I think he was just the scapegoat. To respond to "Ka from NY" Black are in fact getting paid to used similiar or worse languages, they are called rappers. I think if they go about firing everybody that use foul language, i guess most rappers will be out of business sooner than we think and do not forget the "Black Entertainment Television" which made Bob Johnson, might I add an African American man a BILLIONAIRE. People that live in glass house do not throw stones.

It is not so much these words, this time. It is a pattern for him and he makes good money doing it. Nobody would pay and glorify a black man to do the same.
