Don Imus - The Remix?

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

After being booted off of MSNBC and CBS Radio for calling the Rutgers University women's basketball team "nappy-headed hos," you would think Don Imus would steer clear of racial remarks.

But Noooooo.


mus found himself again trying to defend racial remarks when he was criticized for raising questions about the race of a suspended Dallas Cowboy, cornerback Adam Jones.

"What color is he?" Imus asked a sports announcer. When told Jones is African-American, Imus responded : "There you go. Now we know."

Imus claims he is being misunderstood, and what he really was trying to say was that Jones is being picked on because he's black.

Really.

In the context of the story, Jones' race shouldn't have come up....period.
