Imus: The Return

Our position as one of the more visible media watchdogs affords us the opportunity to relay important information and opinions, often purported seemingly as facts, to our readers and followers who desire an interpretation of important events without the taint provided by the mainstream media.

We advocate for news, not taint. And, we feel most can justifiable join us in this endeavor.

Most will recall the not so distantly removed racial diatribe enacted by Don Imus and his klansmen. Imus and his henchmen conducted a verbal lynching of the Negro females of the Rutgers women's basketball team. Not only stealing the shine of their Final Four appearance, but improbably detracting from the general quality of their futures. By openly belittling their race - and degrading their hair - Imus enacted a modern day version of the old Southern tradition of slave rape. The psychological damage of Imus verbally forcing his will upon the young Negresses is incalculable. We won't know for years the true damage that the penetration of his words has caused.

Now, months later, Imus is back on the airwaves.

To his credit, he introduced his new side kick, a brilliantly talented and hysterically comic Negro woman. He also acquainted us with his new sports commenter. A knowledgeable and well spoken Negro man. Certainly, we are proud to see these Negroes in the media gain employment based solely on their merits. Imus and producers actively giving positions to the best possible applicants and the applicants that best gel with his comedy and commentary stylings certainly gives full credence to the notion that this new Imus Show is a rebirth in both ideology and outlook. It isn't simply just a rehashing of the old Imus Show in black face.

Certainly, we could never be accused of judging others. That simply isn't our vocation. But we find it interesting that the Imus Show will be aired on TV on something called 'RFD' (we think), which apparently is a special network set up for 'rural' America. And, we must say, it's about time the needs of 'rural' America are being addressed. For ages we have heard the 'rural' segment of America clamoring for more Negro side kicks and sports commenters.

Just as Negro America is in debt to Imus for showing us that it is possible to rehabilitate the 'taint', 'rural' America is now in debt to Imus for bring them -what for many- is their first 'interaction' with Negroes.

We applaud Imus for building bridges in this country between 'rural' America and Negro America.

Nothing but good can come of Imus' newest endeavor which is focused on proactive undertakings, and not simple reactive preventive measures.

And, in thanking Imus, we ALL must admit to a debt of gratitude to the Rev. Al Sharpton. Sharpton was criticized for his views on this and demanding Imus be fired. But, now we see what the Rev really had in mind.

Sometimes, you must clear a field to plant a new crop.

And manure is the best of fertilizers.

I don't know. I think I'll hold off judgment until they start calling him 'Auntie Imima'.

We know today what the damage of those words are. For years so-called negro "artists" have been labeling negro women as "ho's". This destruction of self-esteem plays a definite role in their current plight.

Sir, your impassioned plea to equate Negro to Negro colloquialism with 'Whiteman in a position of power' verbal rape of 'powerless young Negro women in critical stages of their personal development' is misguided at best...patently racist at worst.

And with you, we always get the worst.

Is that what it is? what a sorry state of misguidedness you live in.

so hex, you agree with NOIS that as long as it is a black man talking to a black woman then use of the term "ho" is okay...your ignorance is stunning.

who said it is ok?

all i said is not the same...it's like if your brother and you are arguing and he says he hates you....does he really mean it? when you argue with someone you know doesn't care about you...you know he means it...get it? i know, you probably don't.

So you personally know many of these rap artists? stop making excuses for it. Any number of rap albums, with the negative portrayal of women, does more damage to the black community than an old washed up radio host ever could. Black kids actually look up to famous rap artists. NOIS dismisses it as colloquial banter among negros and that is irresponsible. But again, with NOIS, it isnt about eliminating a negative behavior it is just about pointing out when whites do it...as if that gives blacks a free pass to do it as well.

lol verbal lynching!! Oh the drama...

People (of all races) in this country are so spoiled. There are nations all over the world in complete turmoil right now... people having their rights SERIOUSLY violated, people starving, people dying.

Meanwhile in the US some old shock jock makes a lame comment in bad taste about a group of young women and their lives are irreparably destroyed. Their priceless legacies (uh, what team was that again) were rendered worthless by a man so powerful that a mere joke of his could undo all of it!!

This really helps put things in perspective on how lucky we really are as Americans. Bring this little tale of suffering to people in this world who really are suffering and they laugh. Period.

And subsequently hate and envy the US more than they already do.

Dont you know there was slavery in this country??? how dare you say that negros have a fair chance in this country. Now my bow tie is in a real bunch.

ummm....and what are YOU doing on this very thread. Imus did something that was WRONG and you are trying to JUSTIFY it by saying black rappers do it....that is called being a hypocrit, man. dont you see that? you accuse NOIS of something, but in doing so, you do the same thing you accuse him of...that devalues your argument...and more pointedly, makes you look like a racist fool.

Sir please read the posts more carefully. I did not try to justify Imus' behavior. I am saying Imus behavior is no worse than the behavior of the rap artists. In fact the rappers may be more dangerous because kids actually emulate them. Again it just proves that NOIS is not against the negative behavior..he will come up with many ways to justify a negros negative behavior.
