Dave is funny as hell but I don't see that he is any less offensive than Imus is. It just depends on who's saying it and the color of their skin. "Racism" somehow makes it OK. Anyone offended by comedians needs to get a life.
Yeah you might be right. But maybe it isn't because Dave is black and Imus is white. Maybe it is because Dave is funny and Imus isn't.

If you are white you can not say anything that is not PC but if you are black then you can say anything you want. I am a cracker, honkies and a white boy and that does not bother me a bit. I think the PC police are out of control.
Good post rhertz.

I've been thinking about this issue and "free speech" and all that. We all know you don't have the right to enter a theater and yell "Fire! Fire!" which might cause panic resulting in injury.

But if a comedian is in a theater and yell's "Fire! Fire!" everyone would probably continue laughing thinking it is a joke or part of the act rather than actually panic and run.

So comedians have speech rights that we not-as-funny folks don't? All I'm saying is that I think comedians sometimes think there is no line at all, just because the line that they can't cross is no where near everybody elses, at least if the comedian is funny enough. But the line is still there. It does move around a little depending on who you are. I think some comedians just make a bad choice out of the 100's of jokes they choose to tell and cross the wrong line. I'm not defending Imus, never heard of him before. I just think this whole story is over done.

I have to agree I found the episode I saw funny but was still somewhat shocked that was allowed on cable t.v. and that no one black nor white had put up a fuss!

We have let the PC rat get into the house

The very ones that say they are here to help you (ACLU) are the same lawyers that are the PC police. Help the poor man but don't you dare call him poor. Break the back of the working man because he might have independent thoughts and that just will not do kind of like unplugging from the Matrix the agents will be coming to see you if you get out of line with their way of thinking. How is it that we as a country will let 17% of the population dictate
with the help of trial lawyers what the rest of the country can say and not say ????

Unhappy Imus...you will be missed.

Imus used to be on at my house every morning before I left for work. He pretty much said what the rest of us think but are affraid to say! What ever happened to freedom of speech? If a black man had said what he said they would have thought it was funny! Did anyone see the interview where Imus addressed 2 black people as "you people" MEANING THOSE TWO PEOPLE? They immediatly jumped all over him..."you people, you people" meaning he was classifying the black race as "YOU PEOPLE"! Get that dang chip off your shoulders and set an example for all of us white folks. Don't call each other nigga, nappy heads, playas, pimps etc. if you don't want the rest of the world to think it is okay for us to talk that way.

Do you happen to like Barney Fife too Well the PC crap is all run by a few that are driven to tear down and make life ruff on all of us. It is time for people like Imus and Ann Coulter to be heard in a large way. The big correction is coming and it ain't gone to be pretty. Welcome to the board Kramer I love that guy.
Isaac
Hey Kramer if aybody knows about the black race it is you. I think ya know what I mean.

Isaac,
You seem to know me well! I guess you are a fan! Ah, yes, I do know the "race" well, as do YOU! Also, Barney Fife is a close relative! Mayberry and New York and Bossier City are closer than you think!

What year was that about 1980 when I really got to know Barney and yes Mayberry is just around the corner from all of us. Hey Paw. I think Imus will get his own show on satellite radio and he should. He will sell like Coulter and it is time to have Cracker Radio and let this PC crap go the way of the world. I am glad so see new faces on the board and someone that likes Mayberry at that.

Thumbs up This is a must read about the Imus issue

I am sure that not all avatars read Ann Coulter but this is a good read on the subject of Imus

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?
