silence is golden


Anyone who is surprised by this really needs to slap themselves a couple times.




Don - you are no longer allowed to make any comments regarding anyone's race on the radio. Yes - that is censorship and yes, I am fine with it. You're back on the air, the least you could do is stay away from race. I don't care what everyone else says, there is no coming back for you. There is no way to trust a word out of your mouth. The camel's back has been broken, now stop fucking with his wheelchair!

And what about:

Co-host Karith Foster, who is black, came to Imus' defense during Tuesday's broadcast, saying, "People who interpret what you said as racist clearly didn't hear the whole thing, and they don't know who you are and what the program is about -- and they obviously haven't been listening."

I listened years ago until he turned my stomach one too many times - it was when he went after Gwen Ifill (who is my favorite person on PBS).
I honestly don't care how he meant it, this man should not be talking about race on a broadcast. Is that too sensitive? Is that censorship? Maybe.
The thing is that this is like his 112th chance. I'm tired of him. I'm tired of those like him. I'm ready to move on.

I guess that's just Imus being Imus. His act has gotten old. I wonder how long it will be before McCain goes on his new show? Or has he already?

WNG said...

I don't know Jay - I don't listen to it anymore...nor do I pay attention to McSame.

Hey - when do I get my ring???

Yes, when I saw it on the news I was like why did you EVEN ask what race it was. If your were trying to what you said why not say I bet the reason this guy is harassed is because he black... or better yet as you put it WNG, don't say NOTHING at all not a hmm...not peep....not oh!

WNG said...

And then everyone acts all surprised. Why? Did anyone really think he'd changed? This is what he's made his living off of for DECADES!

OG, The Original Glamazon said...

Yes the surprise, that is funny to me as well. The only surprise I had was that Imus doesn't want this new job he JUST got! Or he would have kept his mouth SHUT!

Also, I loved how Imus included "women" in his list of things that make clubs dangerous. Apparently, we make men--especially African-American men--shoot at each other. Clearly, we must be stopped.

As always, racism and sexism go together in Imus' mind. Why do people still go on his show?

WNG said...

I really couldn't answer that, Slag, because it makes no sense to me either.

So why is this jackass still on the air? Surely there are other people who can hash over sports news as well if not better than him...

WNG said...

Yes, like...ANYONE!
