What is the big deal? Why are these "black leaders" not in an uproar over the "hip hop/rap" music? These so-called artists use much more inflammatory language and play to a larger audience than does "Imus in the Morning."
Don Imus is on at 3 a.m. on the West Coast and 6 a.m. on the East. On the other hand, whose child has not been exposed to the lyrics on these hip-hop disks?
I think that the good reverends in the world need to look inside their own demography/culture before throwing any stones at the outside world.
What Imus said was not warranted and was wrong, but he is apologetic and he is also a very large player in the volunteer world for the needy.
