It's wrong in all instances. The hypocrisy of the "leaders" of the black community is amazing in this situation IMHO. Jackson and Sharpton are as big a joke as Imus is.
Imus was wrong, but if they are going to call him out, they better start worrying about all the folks that GAC mentioned above. It is never right, regardless of your race.
Talent is God Given: be humble.
Fame is man given: be thankful.
Conceit is self given: be careful.
