NEW YORK (Reuters) - U.S. radio personality Don Imus on Tuesday defended linking a football player's race to brushes with the police as Imus tried to dampen a brewing race controversy over remarks he made one day earlier.
During his breakfast show on Monday on Citadel Broadcasting Corp's ABC Radio Networks, Imus discussed Adam "Pacman" Jones, who was suspended by the National Football League in April 2007 because of his link to a Las Vegas triple shooting.
A colleague of Imus commented on how many times Jones had been arrested since he had been drafted by the Tennessee Titans in 2005, and Imus asked what color he was. Told that Jones is black, Imus responded: "Well, there you go. Now we know."
But on Tuesday Imus said during his show: "Obviously I already knew what color he was. The point was to make a sarcastic point.(bullshit)
"What people should be outraged about is they arrest blacks for no reason," he said. "There's no reason to arrest this kid six times, maybe he did something once, but I mean everybody does something once."(Don Imus is doing what we call in Texas.....covering his ass....Pac Man was arrested because he has a sense of intitlement and is an idiot, and only quit fucking up when he figured out he wouldn't be able to make any money to 'get' into trouble if he didn't shape up...)
CBS Radio fired Imus in April 2007 for referring to the predominantly black members of a university women's basketball team as "nappy headed hos," a phrase combining a derogatory term for coarse, curly hair with slang for whore.(thank you for the discourse in language..like no one in the fucking country knew what it meant when he called them 'nappy headed hos'...)
Civil rights campaigner Rev. Al Sharpton said he found the inference in this week's remark by Imus "disturbing." He said his National Action Network lobby group had been monitoring Imus' show since he returned to the airwaves in December.(Al Sharpton is a asshole, and no one actually cares what he thinks)
"I find the inference of his remark disturbing because it plays into stereotypes. Any use of stereotypes is always counterproductive," Sharpton said in a statement. "We will determine in the next day or so whether or not his remark warrants direct action on our part."(Excuse the fuck out of me..but who died and made him judge and jury?)
Jones, 24, recently signed with the Dallas Cowboys and was cleared this month to begin practicing with the team.
Where he announced he wanted to be called by his given name as Pac Man had a bad connotation to it....duh!..ya think?
I think Don needs early retirement and I hope Adam Jones has really cleaned up his act, cause if he fucks up my Coyboays with any off the field activities..I will hunt him down and tap dance on his forehead and cotton eyed joe on his ribcage...
fuckme till I penetrate the end zone.
