Default Don Imus firing.....

I hope that noone can argue the fact that what Imus said was OK...but the firing, IMO, is a result of Corporate America being intimidated by Black America. Who the hell is Al Sharpton anyway? The black people I know see him for the joke that he is. Tawana Brawley sound familiar? Where is a WHITE leader to speak on the behalf of the three Duke Lacrosse players that were falsely accused of rape? Where is the public outcry about that? Where is Fat Al now on that issue? Look at the OJ case. I've read in several sources that that verdict was a result of worrying about another riot like in '92. I'm sick of the double standards. I'm sick of the reverse discrimination.

While you some make some good points in your first post the whites only colleges were pretty much every college and university in this nation up until the 1960's. No need for a NAAWP. As for our WET its called CBS,NBC ,and FOX.

Default Re: Don Imus firing.....

I completly agree.

Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson are both to blame big time for the Duke Lacrosee players being prosecuted in the first place.Big named political figures breathing down the neck of the prosecutor to put them on trial.Duram,NC is an area with a very high amount of black people...with the support of Jackson and Sharpton,he HAD to prosecute those boys.

The "victim" has lied about being kidnapped and raped before,back when she was 14.There was no evidence and she later backed away from the charges because she lied.Normally,the DA wouldn't take on the same case someone lied about before...but Jackson and Sharpton's involvment made it even bigger than what it should have been.

This case ruined many lives: the families of the boys charged,the boys charged,Duke's Lacrosse coach (who was wrongfully fired,he can't control his players off the field of play),the prosecutor,the entire lacrosse team.

Those boys will never be successful in life,they will always be known as the lacrosse players who were accused of raping that stripper;nobody will hire them,even with degrees from a top university like Duke.

Thier families spent millions in thier defense.They sold thier cars,thier houses.That stuff they will never have back.I believe the families and boys should sue Sharpton,Jackson,and the prosecutor.

The coach has not found a job yet,but he wasn't responsible for the party,the false accusations,or anything.He won't get hired by a community college.

The prosecutor basicly axed his career when he decided to take the case.Yeah,if he got convictions his career would take off.But it was a failed before it even started.He will be let go by the DA and won't get a job prosecuting anywhere now.I feel if Sharpton and Jackson weren't involved,he would have never brought the charges against the players.

The entire team was affected by the cancellation of the season.Many players missed thier senior season,it affected thier entry into the pro lacrosse draft.They will also be looked at as members of the team where thier players were accused of raping that stripper.They might have even been at the party.That cloud won't go away.

Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton are first-class racists.They are the first to want the white people fired,jailed,and fiend...and the first to defend the black people when they break the law and/or do something stupid.

"Nappy headed ho",those are not words on the list of things that can be said on the air.Neither are "cracker white trailor trash"...if a black DJ were to say that about a white person and some white people were to want him fired,you can bet your bottom dollar Sharpton and Jackson would be the first two to rush the the black DJ's defense.

The black man can be racist and get away with it,the white man cannot be...and if he is he should lose his job and everything else for it...at least that's the world Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton live in.

My freshman year of high school (1999-2000 school year),a girl at my high school (Euclid High School,Euclid,Ohio) was caught giving oral sex for money to the entire boy's jv basketball team ,which happened to be all black...the girl giving the blowjobs was white.She got expelled along with the entire team.

Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton held a rally in front of the school one Friday just after the expulssions and asked for the entire school bored,and all the faculty in charge of discipline to resign or be fired due to the "racism shown by the faculty for expelling all blacks except for the white girl that performed the oral sex".Well,the only people ON CAMERA entering and leaving the room...and in line to enter the room...were the black players on the JV basketball team.The only people in the room when a teacher walked in and saw what was going on was the white girl giving oral sex and members of the JV basketball team.

So yes,they are hypocritcal *******s whom are proof of the racist double standard in this country.

Don't worry Jeremy,I have a feeling that Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton are gonna be getting what's coming to them very soon.I heard that the families of/and the players are preparing lawsuits against both men and the prosecutor.They will win the lawsuits,since evidence showed that the crimes did not happen,and that the girl should have not been believed in the first place.

Jackson and Sharpton did thier usual thing,throw out damaging acusations without knowing a shred of fact about the situation,or persons involved.

Default Re: Don Imus firing.....

For starters, let me say I'm a black minority.

The only way for hypocritical double standard racism to die is to have those two idiots Jackson and Sharpton die one day. They have been nothing but trouble. I feel terrible for the Duke Lacrosse players. Their lives and their families' lives were completely ruined by that extorting drug-dealing ***** stripper, her lying lawyer, and those two fools. I am so sorry for Don Imus. It makes no sense for him to lose his job over a bunch of stupid words. I lost a lot of respect for the Rutgers Women players after seeing them whine to the press about what a guy they don't know said about them. It's absolutely sickening.
