I am done listening to all this crazy mess...But I do have a questions about this Imus stuff... What did he say that was racist? What did he do or say to get the NAACP involved in this? I have listened over and over on the news, good morning america, todays show....I still didnt hear anything about black, colored or anything else....I havent heard anything out of the 2-3 white girls on the basketball team...SO are they not considered part of this eventhough it was directed to the team as a whole.... One of the (white) girls spoke out and only spoke about the black girls on her team.... Please help me out with the racist part of this, so I can understand...... I am a debater and so I need this information to rest my thinking..... Have a wonderful day:)

the racist part of his comment was calling them "nappy headed" which is a derogatory slur....add to that the fact that he also called them "ho's" (as in wh0res) and its a recipe for trouble..

I understand the comment and by no means was it nice at all, but why was the NAACP called in and the civil rights people.....Thats what I am wondering...
