You know what is interesting to me is that they can call each other Nappy head and such but don't dare let anybody else do it.

Yep it just depends on who's doing it. On the other hand, as a white guy, anyone can call me a "cracker" and that is ok. In fact, it is almost like I somehow deserve it. Doesn't bother me though. I'm not a big fan of political correctness to begin with, so my skin is pretty thick.

All this PC crap has gone to far. Apologize for freedom of speech ? Never ! This is the age of suck ups and I am tired of help a brother attitude You help them and they bite your hand and still do nothing but want more and never try to take it and make it better. You can lead a brother to water but you can not make him drink.

It is an atrocity to say "nappy headed hos" which is an obvious racial slur. Now had the team been playing Lacrosse at Duke and been called "blonde bimbo hos" by a controversial black radio DJ, it would have been met with much less controversy I think. I’m still trying to figure all this out………………

Things you are allowed to make fun of:
1. Skinny people
2. White guys
3. How country rednecks talk
4. White girls hair
5. The troups’ commander


Things you are NOT allowed to make fun of:
1. Fat people
2. Black guys
3. How minorities talk
4. Black girls hair
5. The troups

Yeah...the whole "PC" thang...alot of how a controversial comment is received/perceived depends on where, when, and to whom its uttered . Not a whole lot of folks down here in the south are gonna get mad at ya if ya use the "N" word, cuz we've all met our share of em. Not ALL blacks deserve it, but many of em do, so ya just have to be sure that whoever youre callin the "N" word rates it! And Im like you Rhertz, they can call me "cracker" or "whitey" or "honkey" till they turn blue in the face and it aint gonna bother me, cuz the ones who would be callin me those things are the "N's" I just spoke of. If we're talkin about mexicans who are here legally and are hard workin contributin members of society, I wont use the "S" or "W" words when referrin to em, but I got no problem callin the illegal aliens by em!

Thumbs up This is a must read about the Imus issue

This is the direct result of ignoring liberal agendas. How many times have you altered activities or speech out of fear of being called a racist? Gotta look over your shoulder before you tell that joke?

Interestingly enough, a direct correlation exists between the civil rights movement and the rise in crime, prison populations, violence, drop-out rates, lower education scores, etc, etc, etc.

I'm sure this passed with flying colors in California....to bad you guys think we're all created equally, huh?

Hey Patty Ann are you 41 ? Imus will land on his feet and with no shortage of money after all in America one way to make money is to get fired or go to jail then the media has you and you can write a book or make money off of it in some way.
