“Imus, as a white man that spewed racial bile, is the softest of soft targets. The same can’t be said for the black rap shock jocks. They made Imus possible. They gave him the rappers bad housekeeping seal of approval to bash and trash black women.”
Thx Ananser! “Media Matters for America called on members of the media to question MSNBC’s apparent double standard – quickly firing host Michael Savage for anti-gay hate speech in 2003 while failing to punish Don Imus for years of inflammatory commentary
Thx Tereza! “In his research of about a thousand films from 1896 to the present that included Arab characters or references, Shaheen found that around 12 gave positive depictions, 52 were neutral, and some 900 were negative.”
Thx Tereza! “The paper distributed was a 28-page April 2006 edition of The Insurgent published by the White Aryan Resistance, associated with well-known white supremacist Tom Metzger, who calls himself “the voice of progressive racism.””
