Don Imus apparently doesn’t get it. On his radio show today he had this exchange with Warner Wolf:

Wolf: "Defensive back Adam ‘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.

    Unless he meant to imply the Tennessee police is racist and that was why the guy was arrested so many times? But wait…..that could not possibly be it since that of course doesn’t happen! 😉
