Yesterday I worked out a response to Don Imus. Zondervan has posted it under April 24th (you will need to scroll down) here. It's my thoughts of his "nappy-headed hoes" comment in regards to the Rutger's women's basketball team.
After re-reading my Zondervan post, I'd like to add one thing. I'm not certain Imus should have been fired (I think Imus is capable of redemption in this and using it as well as he uses his ranch for children). But, I do think people who make their millions from cutting into the soft spots of others should be paid substantially less, much less than school teachers. If we pay them so well aren't we saying we value his type of perverse humor? Solomon says it well,
A worthless person, a wicked man,
Is the one who walks with a perverse mouth,
Who winks with his eyes, who signals with his feet,
Who points with his fingers;
Who with perversity in his heart continually devises evil,
Who spreads strife.
Therefore his calamity will come suddenly;
Instantly he will be broken and there will be no healing. (Prov. 16:12-15)
