    F him. He should be buried but won't be.

    At NBC he used to walk up to African Americans and call them, to their faces, the N word.

    His true colors really showed through.

    He's also used kids with cancer to build his ranch.

    He's a horrible horrible human being.

    A soulless member of the walking dead who has somehow convinced people and his employer that he has a "popular" radio show.

    I really don't care because every one is racist, and everyone says stupid things so why should Imus be any different.

    Well, it's advertised as "spend time out on the ranch with the animals and what not."

    The reality is that they do the work and build the place.

    I don't have any links to the stories I've read handy but I believe them.

    I'm shocked the man is still alive. And I've heard and read from articles the same things that drippy is saying about him. What a jackass, like I said, I'm surprised he's not dead yet.

    I gotta agree with you. Everyone has there personal prejudices, but as a professional he should refrain from describing a group of students representing their university as "nappy headed hoes." I understand he has "shock value" or whatever, but at least keep your comments to people that are making money off of their profession.

    I don't like what he said anymore than the next guy, but are we going to start demanding every radio host quit when they say something we don't like? I think that covers about everyone I've heard of to some extent!!!

    The 1st Amendment protects speech we don't like too.

    I didn't like him before he made these comments or before I knew about his racist behavior.

    I hated him because of his obnoxious ten gallon hat. :lol

    Four letter word.
    Starts with C.
    Rhymes with "unt".

    So, I guess I can make a racial slur at work and not expect to get fired?

    This isn't a free speech issue, if he had been dragged off by the authorities and put in jail for what he said, or had any other legal action been taken, then it would be a violation of the first amendment.

    I don't understand...I've never heard him before, but the general reaction is that he was already a fucking douche, so why would anyone be surprised or even upset about what he said?

    Edit: And I'm just gonna say it...Black people have nappy hair so how is that racist? This reminds of the porch-monkey scene from Clerks II.

    Again, many forget that with the First Amendment comes consequences.

    If memory serves right, wasn't Imus like what Howard Stern is these days, a "shock jock" type. And even though I dont think it was cool, you know if a black dude called a white guy a cracker that'd be okay because racism is bad unless its against the whites, but this is about as exciting to me as Rosie ODonnell and Don Trumps "feud".
