One thing is certain. Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton are the Gloria Aldred's of racism. They don't care who they are attacking as long as they get their sound bites in. Imus is an idiot and crossed a line with his comments. But tell me, has anyone listened to Michael Savage, Bill O'Reilly and for that matter half of the commentators on Fox? They make blatantly racist comments that don't end up in their firing or even their censure. Imus calls his wife "the green ho", is it astonishing that he'd use a similar term to describe a women's basketball team? Racism is always going to be an issue if the reaction is to censor anyone opening their mouth with an opinion. This culture is too fast to use punitive measures when dialog could actually lead to a better solution.

The racist comments are becoming a bit much yes, but free speech and ones right to state their opinion is a touchy subject... we say tone it down, and we look like we are trying to keep members of other races or groups happy. And if we don't do anything, then we are blatantly racist or discriminant bastards.
