Is Don Imus Racist?

by at . Comments

Controversial radio personality Don Imus has found himself in the middle of another scandal involving potentially racist remarks after discussing the many arrests of suspended Dallas Cowboys star Adam "Pacman" Jones.

"What color is he?" asked Imus, who was fired last year by CBS after his comments about the Rutgers women's basketball team, to his co-host.

Upon learning that Pacman Jones is, in fact, African-American, Imus succinctly replied: "Well, there you go. Now we know."

After incurring much criticism over the comment, which many view as racist, Don Imus said on Tuesday that he was trying to "make a sarcastic point ... What people should be outraged about is that they arrest blacks for no reason. I mean, there's no reason to arrest this kid six times."

What do you think? Is Don Imus racist, or are people too obsessed with being politically correct and giving him too hard a time over this?

He is telling it like it is! I moved from NYC to NC and I have become a racist because of the redneck blacks and whites here. It is like living in the 1960s. A bunch of hateful natives in NC.

I think he uses his free speech. Which by the way is still a constitutional right!
