“My Producer is Black and my two Co-Hosts are Black.” says Don Imus after another blatantly racist comment rolled off his untamed tongue.  Sound familiar? In my experiences, the people who are most racist against blacks, or hold some sort of animosity toward us, must go out of their way to tell us how many of their “friends are black”, how many black people “they hang out with” or how much they “LOOOVE Rap Music”.  Imus explained his comments made on Monday morning saying, “I was making a sarcastic point.”  For those of you who haven’t heard, Imus was chatting with Warner Wolf, a well known sportscaster, on his nationally syndicated morning radio show, about Dallas Cowboys Cornerback, Adam “Packman” Jones. They spoke about his numerous run-ins with the law, and Imus’s retort included the following,  “What color is he?” After Wolf alerted Imus to the fact that Mr. Jones was an African American Imus continues with this, “There you go. Now we know.” How much more blatant can you get? In Imus’s statement released on Tuesday, the former COCAINE ADDICT and ALCOHOLIC said,  “What people should be outraged about is that they arrest blacks for no reason, and I mean there’s no reason to arrest this kid six times,” he said. “They shoot blacks for no reason.” Come on Imus, even an intelligent racist like yourself could come up with something better than that.  Maybe the after effects of those drugs and liquor are kicking in, along with senility, of course. I’m sure you all remember the “Nappy head hoes” comment, where he offended the women’s basketball team of my Alma Mater, Rutgers University, as they played for the National Championship. In light of your track record Mr. “My friends are black”, there is no doubt in my mind that racism runs through you. Or as us black people say, “You got hate in your blood!!”
