IMUS GETS CANNED
So Imus gets canned. I say we start a huge protest campaign against Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton. We’ll document all of their hateful comments and ask for apologies. Then we’ll decide those apologies are not good enough and demand their termination from whatever it is they actually do.
Oh please–someone call them on the carpet for the following statements. And if there is a spotlight, a camera and a microphone, here’s betting they’ll show.
Jackson called the firing “a victory for public decency. No one should use the public airwaves to transmit racial or sexual degradation.”
Said Sharpton: “He says he wants to be forgiven. I hope he continues in that process. But we cannot afford a precedent established that the airways can commercialize and mainstream sexism and racism.”
Ha. I’m sure they’ll take dead aim at the rap community next. Or not.
Perhaps a protest/ban of Icecube’s newest film is in order. Sexual and racial degradation? Icecube is one of the kings. As is Snoop Dogg. I’d also love to have a look at those Rutgers’ players iPods. Think we’d find any of this type of music on there? Is it all good until it’s directly aimed at you?
Here’s a great article by Jason Whitlock. It describes the real problem.
