Don Imus will appear on the Rev. Al Sharpton’s radio show Monday, five days after Imus made racially charged comments on his own show about the Rutgers women’s basketball team, Sharpton and MSNBC announced Sunday.
Despite Imus’ scheduled appearance, Sharpton said his position was unchanged: He wants Imus fired and intends to write the Federal Communications Commission about the matter.
“Somewhere we must draw the line in what is tolerable in mainstream media,” Sharpton said Sunday. “We cannot keep going through offending us and then apologizing and then acting like it never happened. Somewhere we’ve got to stop this.“
I say ixnay with all the NAACP protests, on-air grillings by Rev. Al, and Jesse picketing outside NBC (which owns MSNBC, where Imus is broadcast). Put his ass in a pit with these nappy-heads and let them stomp the shit out of him.
