For Imus
Well what do you know
After all of these years
Of bringing raucous entertainment
Now he's brought some tears
It seems he has offended
The Ruygers womens basketball team
Jesse Jackson and Rweverend Al
Took him to task, his as they did ream
That was not enough for them
No, they had to demand his job
Because all those offended are perfect
But Imus is just a racist slob
For more than thirtyfive years now
He has poked fun at people of all kinds
Now he is gone from the airwaves
Because a few people lost their minds
They propped themselves up to be pure
Though everyone knows they're not
Unless they've never told an ethnic joke
Though they live in America's melting pot
Oh no, they've never uttered a racial slur
Like honky, cracker or nigger
Take a ggood look in the mirror people
It's entertainment, grow skin that's a tad thicker
Author's Notes:
For more than thirtyfive years we in the New York listening area have listened to Don Imus on the radio. He is a controversial DJ who has poked fun at every ethnic group there is, lambasted every politician that deserved it. Well, he has been fired for "Insensitive" remarks made about the Rutgers women's basketball team. Of course that "Pillar" of society, Reverend Al Sharpton got involved ( Yes, the same one who was caught for tax evasion ) and Imus has been silenced..Fired, unjustly in my opinion.

Glad, I found this one...Great read that captured what happened.

I only caught his radio show a few times but the the tv simulcast I watched every morning.

I miss Imus.

Enjoyed the read.

Imus should start his own show.

Screw nappy headed ho's, al sharpton and jesse jackson.

Im surprised the ACLU didn't unleash the hounds of hell and sue NBC.

 

NY won't be the same.

Good job and I must say that I agree wholeheartly. In my view if Mr. Imus had been a  black man this would not have happened and would have instead been laughed off as a joke if it was even thought of  at all.

while some of what you say may be true, i'm wondering the context with which he spoke. Because while some politicians/celebrities, or whatever, may deserve criticism, why exactly was he calling these young women that?  I understand that, although we are not a colorblind and completely egalitarian society as we would love to think of ourselves, just because this is true does not justify any person for showing it (just as much as they are not justified in hiding it). The main problem is that people should not pretend to be so shocked. As I said, i don't know the context with which he spoke, but i don't agree with outright insults for no real reason...especially when put in such derogatory terms! it may be his God given right...and, now that i think of it, the problem with our society is that we think "eliminate the problem" without diving into the complexities of the issue. Unfortunately, we still live in a racist, sexist society, whether we are aware of it or not, and firing one man for getting a little more dirt in the wound won't solve that larger problem...(i'm afraid nothing will. oh well)

Because of the content of this comment, some may be offended. The biggest piece of sh*t in the black community is Al Sharpton, he is their biggest hypocrit. Pick any ten rap songs, nine of them call black women HOs and bitches. The other one will call them sluts. The black community has the highest rate of genocide in this country. Every race are hypocrits, but come on people. Imus should not have been fired, fined, yea, but not fired. Good piece of writing Henry, Joe

He's  sure never been one to cut any slack...no matter WHO was in his line of fire...And you know what's so funny? I bet you that at one point in time or another each one of the girls on that team has called one of the others a "Ho"...

Go figure, eh?

Hugs to ya!
