Re: Anyone following the Don Imus 'saga'?
Awesome cartoon. There's more reality to that picture than people realize. Jackson and Sharpton have become the high priests of their race, handing out judgements and forgiveness at their whim. They have a title in front of their names but blatantly don't live up to it. It's a shame.
By the way, does anyone know where to find lyrics to popular rap songs that have been "interpreted" (for lack of a better word) for those of us who don't know all the lingo? I'd be curious to read what's said about black women in those songs. I hear it's no different than what Imus said so I wonder if Jackson/Sharpton/Obama will call for it to be removed from the airwaves as well. Don't get me wrong. I'm not defending Imus' words. I simply believe that if these words are truly wrong, then it should apply to everyone.
Also, I loved Whitlock's article. Too bad it will be ignored by most media outlets and few people will read it.
