Don Imus apparently doesn’t get it. On his radio show today he had this exchange with Warner Wolf:
Wolf: "Defensive back Adam â€˜Pacman’ Jones, recently signed by the Cowboys. Here’s a guy suspended all of 2007 following a shooting in a Vegas night club."
Imus: "Well, stuff happens. You’re in a night club, for God’s sake. What do you think’s gonna happen in a night club? People are drinking, they’re doing drugs. There are women there, and people have guns. So, there, go ahead."
Wolf: "He’s also been arrested six times since being drafted by Tennessee in 2005."
Imus: "What color is he?"
Wolf: "He’s African-American."
Imus: "Well, there you go. Now we know."
What in the hell is he thinking? How is this not blatantly racist? This guy is lucky to have a job after they made so much noise about his comments regarding the Rutgers women’s basketball team. Wait until they get a hold of this one. Just wait. I don’t even see where he was trying to make a joke.
