Mr and Mrs Imus Vs. Basketball Team

by James Jett

The media took steps today too correct. It’s daily error when it terminated the Don Imus Show. No one should call other people names that will be consider an insult by the majority. The next step should be to screen the images and edited the content to remove all images that encourage old and young alike to commit self abuse and welcome video that approve and highlight having sex in the streets like dogs. It’s the money, not the sex, you are talking about a multimillion dollar income when discussing money earned from trafficking in sex. It survive and flourish with maximum support from all media.. It could not, would not, and will not survive without media support.

It took a Basket Ball Coach and those Outstanding, Wonderful, Intelligent Players to get the ball rolling in the right direction. Those of us who look forward to each morning without listen to name calling just for money and a few minutes of notoriety, know this will not be the end, and civility will not replace ignorance until the money and false-fame is stripped from the reward and pleasure it enjoys. I heard Mrs. Imus for a few minutes this morning, (at least they said it was Mrs. Imus) some wonderful woman, she told the listener and the viewers not to send hate-mail to the basketball players, send it to her Husband! I believe Don Imus have done some good work in this Great Country to help others in need, but look, what he had to say and do to earn or raise the money! Are we growing-up a Nation of people that will donate money to keep hosts on the air as long as they say mean things about other Identifiable groups? Would they donate the same or more money if he would use a different language to point out the success or failure of people instead of calling them names? Another question, did he use the word Nappy head to single out the Black Players?

Should Don Imus return to his show? The Basketball Players should decide, he insulted them, so they should make the decision. What they decide will please some of us and upset the others, I will fight for them to have the right to make the call. As for those of us who will feel let down regardless to what they decide, I am not a coward, nor do I need these wonderful people carrying my heavy load, I can and will fend off hate for myself. Yet I will pray that this mean thing will change in the media, and it will be used for the benefit of the Citizens not just to make the rich richer. If it fails to change, my family will continue to prosper at long as “we take the white men’s virtues and not his vices
