It'* utter bullshit, and to the others that are backing him saying there was nothing wrong with it, are you saying that it'* ok for me to go out into the public and single out minorities and call them offensive names, believe me, I live in the Cleveland metro area, and if I went out and said offensive stuff such as what Imus said, I would be shot and killed for it. I am one of the least racist persons you will ever meet, and I take offense to anyone that calls a minority a derogatory name.
and your one of the reason why this whole country is Sue Happy...


OOooo look i dont like you statement on a Forum.. Im going to Sue...


Its a Word. If you dont like it. says something to the person that said it and then get over it.

I believe someone did try to sue McDonalds. Not sure whatever happened. And, nope, not saying you were implying anyone here is racist.
Believe me, I am a conservative christian, I hear offensive stuff every day.
I ain't suing anyone.
I am sure this will probably settle out of court. It may even end up getting thrown out of court. Like I said, she has to be able to prove actual damage, not just anger and embarrassment.

yeah like a few month ago when that seinfeld guy made racial comments to those blacks in the audience. They persued suing and last word I heard he settled for an un disclosed amount. Personally I dont feel they should have gotten a penny. Imus should have know better plus I hear the guys a jerk in real life so I guess that plays on what I think of him.

I want to know why rappers can call women of all races names 100x times worse, and nobody sues them? I think this is a case of reverse racism. Had Imus been black, I dont think he would be getting sued, or have lost his job. Just a slap on the wrist. Our country will never be racism free until we treat everyone the same. I think that means getting rid of "Black History Month" and the NAACP. Why dont we have a history month that represents all notable people? What about a group that goes for the advancedment of all peoples rights?

Just found this on Yahoo

Quote:
Imus referred to the basketball players as "nappy-headed hos" on his nationally syndicated radio program in April, becoming the target of heated protests. He was fired shortly after.

'Ho' is a slang term for a prostitute. After the comments were made, Vaughn said at a news conference: "Unless they've given 'ho' a whole new definition, that'* not what I am."
Where I come from, a prostitute is a $lut, and a ho does it for free..

I guess taking the high road and trying to "forgive and forget" went out the window a long time ago

Of course, when there'* money to be made, all logic goes out the window....
