I think Kia Vaughn is about to have a can of whupass opened on her by the I-Man's lawyers - never underestiimate the ability of a sympathetic figure to overreach if a gold digger lawyer convinces that person there is some easy money to be made by a shakedown lawsuit.

Oh my good Lord. If anything, she should be paying Imus for making her name known outside the probable circle of about 15 people who actually knew it before this. But it's not surprising. Just like the Coach played this for every undeserved media minute she could *****, the players will milk CBS for whatever their standard settlement is. And CBS has already shown their lack of backbone. They'll pay to make this go away and ignore the much deeper social hypocrisy.

He lost his job and has apologized, he doesn't need sued.

All she is doing is hurting the image she has, the image of many black people, and proving everything Imus said correct.

I said this about Michael Richards, and I now say it again about Imus: he owes them an apology, however, HE DOES NOT OWE THEM MONEY.

Last I checked, this girl has a good chance of making it to the NBA.

Imus made a stupid comment, lost his job for it, but he did not hurt their chances of getting jobs when they leave college. If anything, he gave them better chances because employers will know who they are.

Raise your cyber-hands if you saw this coming? *raises mine*

You guys REALLY didn't think that Imus' apology/firing was going to be the end, did you?

I think anyone could've seen ths coming a mile away. "Nope, an apology doesn't cut it. Now I want your money for emotional damages, even though it helped me to get noticed." In America, an issue is not resolved without the proverbial lawsuit that gobbles up taxpayers' money and wastes time. If this incident didn't damage her reputation, this lawsuit will.

They'll run Imus into the ground just like poor Mike Richards. This won't be the last lawsuit he sees either. The other Rutgers players will get ideas.

I get embarrassed in my race sometimes. Get some skin and shut up. Blacks call each other ni**as all the time, but it's evil for a non-black person to use Ni**a. And they whine about Black stereotypes. Well then if most black people would stop shooting each other, take up some responsibility, and quit reinforcing these stereotypes, they'll disappear.

The lawsuit if frivolous and if the judge is smart, will just dismiss the case and tell the beotch to get a job.

She ain't helping the stereotype that black people want money for doing nothing.

I got an email yesterday from some black person telling me I should vote democrat because the democratic party will get black people reperations due to slavery. I didn't enslave anyone, and I am not paying anyone a red cent if one of my ancestors did.

I replied to the email, telling him that nobody alive today deserves money for what happened back then. I told him that it's people like him that keep the "black people want money for doing nothing" stereotype alive.

LOL good response. I would tell that person that I already paid my dues as I had an ancestor die for the North during the Civil War. He paid the ultimate reparations!!!

Or, then there si the defense that every culture was bound by indentured service or slavery at one point or another...my medieval ancestors were "slaves" to their fuedal lords. Should I research and hunt down their ancestors and demand payment??!! O maybe my family were the lords!!! I should watch out! Double whammy!

Hey, I am Irish. At one point in my family's history, my ancestors had to pay the English to live in Ireland. And when my ancestors came to America, they couldn't get jobs because nobody would hire them.

You want to know why Irish people were always drunk and fighting? The alcohol kept them warm in the cold winters because they couldn't get a job to pay for housing. They fought for money because they couldn't get jobs.

So am I. The Irish were lower on the food chain then anyone else, including black. We were the ghetto then!

The I-man just settled with MSNBC and BS for $20M.

He's getting paid a ton of money to do nothing, AND he got a bunch of free publicity. Rev. Al got a bunch of free publicity too.

They're both laughing at all of us.

Irish people deserve reparations!

At least slaves were given clothing, food, and shelter!

I don't think she's suing because she's black, I think she's suing because that's the culture we live in. If you have even an outside chance to make fat cash for nothing, you take it.

As for the NBC/MSNBC/Imus settlement, the important thing is that he's allowed back on the air. They both sued each other, and Imus already had a lucrative contract in place. He should be rewarded his contractually obligated salary because he was fired for nonsensical reasons.

Amen to that.
