If it was just 'hos' would anyone care?

CBS Radio and MSNBC both said Monday they were suspending Don Imus' morning talk show for two weeks as a protest grew about his reference last week to members of the Rutgers women's basketball team as "nappy-headed hos." Women are referred to as "hos" and "bitches" by popular rap artists and no one raises an eyebrow so I suspect that "nappy-headed" is the real insult here, given how Imus has to go apologize to Sharpton. Steve H has a few things to say about that; I'm just baffled that the American black community has let Sharpton be their self-appointed representative.

As for Mr Imus, he's an uneducated misogynist who comes from a troubled background and who's built an audience that enjoys his sarcasm and no-holds-barred language. He gives people a product they want and he's considered as "one of the greatest radio talk show hosts of all time." So what does that say about his audience?
