More Imus madness
I'm more unsettled by this story now. CBS can do what it wants and I'm not going to question them. My problem is with my journalistic brethren, who keep writing that Imus used a racial slur. He did not.
"Nappy" has no racial connotation. "Ho" has no racial connotation. The Rutgers team is racially diverse. What's going on?
The guy should be punished, no doubt, but his words didn't strike me as someone motivated by racism. Sorry. I've heard legitimately racist comments. So have you. Doesn't sound like "nappy-headed ho" at all, does it?
