Everybody seems to be weighing in on the Imus flap, so I figured I'd share my two cents.
First off, let me say...I don't listen to Imus, apparently, he has somewhere in the neighborhood of 3 million idiots that do. That's about 1% of the population of my country. So, if nobody made a big deal over it, then about 99% of the country wouldn't have even known about it.
I'm hearing and reading how he just destroyed these poor girls dreams...again, what do you suppose the odds are that any one of them ever listened to Imus? I mean, come on, even if they happened upon MSNBC, once they heard that monotone voice and saw that idiotic cowboy hat they would have changed the channel anyway! And of course, there aren't any rap lyrics that call women ho's...nooooo...Imus just licked that word off the grass!
Maybe Imus thought womens basketball was similar to the NBA...full of gangstas and hoodlums!
Then I hear about Imus' freedom of speech...yeah, he still has freedom of speech. What he doesn't have is the pay that went with it. Now he's like the rest of us...running his mouth for free!
And lastly, let me say this...until this whole Imus thing happened I didn't know or care who won or lost the womens NCAA basketball tournament...and I'm from Jersey...for those of you that don't know...Rutgers is in Jersey.
This will be one of the few times in history that people will remember the team that came in second...so dream on Lady Scarlet Knights, all is not lost!
It's early in the morning and i just looked in the mirror, I need to get my nappy headed ass in the shower...have a nice day!
