Did Don Imus cross the line when he emitted that remark? Trying to be cool like a brothah? What WAS he saying?
Well whatever, it misfired and the whole black 'community' is suddenly outraged. Oh my gawd, the white man speaking like that! On public airways! About black girls. No one should say these racist statements. Well Don Imus was rightly fired. Or was he? Is anyone else making these kinds of comments to denigrate the black population? In particular young women?
You bet they are. Tune in to Much Music and MTV any day for a 'T' an 'A' show depicting black women as usable, throw-away toys for lusty black rich men. Listen to the lyrics and their demeaning intent toward black women.
Here are a few examples;
Bitches ain't shit but hoes and tricks
Lick on deez nutz and suck the dick
Get's the fuck out after you're done
And I hops in my ride to make a quick run...
Rollin through the hood, when I see a bitch
I hit the switch, she's on my dick
Man this hoe you can have her, when I'm done I ain't gon keep her
Man, bitches come and go, every nigga pimpin know
You saying it's secret, but you ain't gotta keep it on the low
Bitch choose with me, I'll have you stripping in the street
Put my other hoes down, you get your ass beat
I see you winding and grinding up on that pole
I know you see me looking at you and you already know
I wanna fuck you, fuck you, you already know
I wanna fuck you, fuck you, you already know girl
You can download the lyrics for such things as - I Smell Pussy by G Unit and many other 'songs' by Hip Hop and Rap 'artists'. Don't look aghast folks, your teen daughters are listening to this.
Don Imus, at 63, thought he could do it casually and tossed a loaded remark into the waiting mitts of Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson. The opportunist spokesmen for blacks in America. The pot has been boiling ever since. I think the cauldron was boiling long before Imus said a word.
Will it be possible for white Americans to outrage and protest over the words 'honky' and 'cracka'? Will BET (Black Entertainment Television) listen? Would Much Music stop playing Hip Hop gangsta rap? Would sponsors recoil in horror? Would anyone listen to white Americans whose sensitivities are crushed by derogatory words about them?
You bet they wouldn't.
Double standard is alive and well in the entertainment industry.
It is tragic that the so-called black community accepts the degrading concepts idealized by their own against their own. They should have outraged long ago. Against their own.
