Nappy Headed Hos

Yup, it is about that time. Time for my big ol mouth to tell everyone where to shove it then get over it. First off I have never listened to Imus before so everything that follows is based on this situation.

People need to get a grip. He mad a comment, probably a stupid comment but the reaction is so damn strong. Why, because Sharpton and Jackson want it to be? That's such bullshit. When the day comes when both of those men are calling for the jobs of almost every rapper out there because their lyrics are full of such hate and derogatory remarks then I will listen to and possibly respect their opinions. But for now its all crap. You can't choose to attack Imus because of what he said just because he is white when black rappers are saying much worse and you say NOTHING. That in and of itself is racist you moron.

Then we have the joy of Snoop Dog's opinion. And I quote:
"First of all, we ain't no old-ass white men that sit up on MSNBC going hard on black girls,"We are rappers that have these songs coming from our minds and our souls that are relevant to what we feel. I will not let them mutha----as say we in the same league as him"

There is one part of that statement I agree with. Can you guess which one? This coming from a man who has shown up at an awards show with half naked woman on leashes and who is just recently guilty of felony drug and weapon charges. Where are Sharpton and Jackson's comments denouncing his actions? Exactly. Hypocritical as can be.

And let me say one thing, my children are biracial and I have taught them that ignorance is colorblind. They will face it at some point in their life unfortunately but how you handle it shows your character.

Imus said something stupid and he apologized, seemingly sincerely. Now let it go. Stop holding press conferences, stop threatening with stupid rallies and for the higher ups, grow some balls and stand up against the threats of boycotts and rallies. Seriously the more you give in to this crap the more ridiculous it gets.
