I don't blame this on the government at all. It really has nothing to do with government. What Don Imus said was uncalled for, however, he has his First Amendment right to say whatever he feels. However, as soon as you're employed and speak your mind on the radio, if you say what your employer doesn't like or thinks its bad for the company, you're gonna get your ass canned . Simple as that. Were his rights infringed on? No. He just got fired from a radio job for saying something stupid. He didn't get sanctioned by the FCC, he pissed off the black community and a lot of other people.

That being said, the uproar over this is absolutely ridiculous. Double standards are a bitch ain't they? To paraphrase Bill Cosby, "we've gotta stop calling each other *n word* if you don't want to be called the n word."

Thats all I gotta say about this.
Let your soul shine. Its better than sunshine. Its better than moonshine. Damn sure better than rain.
