    Default Jason Whitlock got it right.




    Finally, someone who thought outside the box on, Al Sharpton/Jesse Jackson/ Don Imus.

    This guy has my respect.

    Some very intelligent insight from Jason Whitlock!! He's on ESPN's sportsreporters quite a bit and always seems to make great points on there, whether it relates to sports or just life in general. Wish we had him here in Michigan/Detroit writing instead of in KC, I think I'd actually be smarter and better informed instead of confused and mad when I read the Detroit News.

    Imus isnít the real bad guy
    Instead of wasting time on irrelevant shock jock, black leaders need to be fighting a growing gangster culture.
    By JASON WHITLOCK - Columnist

    Thank you, Don Imus. Youíve given us (black people) an excuse to avoid our real problem.

    Youíve given Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson another opportunity to pretend that the old fight, which is now the safe and lucrative fight, is still the most important fight in our push for true economic and social equality.

    Youíve given Vivian Stringer and Rutgers the chance to hold a nationally televised recruiting celebration expertly disguised as a news conference to respond to your poor attempt at humor.

    Thank you, Don Imus. You extended Black History Month to April, and we can once again wallow in victimhood, protest like itís 1965 and delude ourselves into believing that fixing your hatred is more necessary than eradicating our self-hatred.

    The bigots win again.

    While weíre fixated on a bad joke cracked by an irrelevant, bad shock jock, Iím sure at least one of the marvelous young women on the Rutgers basketball team is somewhere snapping her fingers to the beat of 50 Centís or Snoop Doggís or Young Jeezyís latest ode glorifying nappy-headed pimps and hos.

    I ainít saying Jesse, Al and Vivian are gold-diggas, but they donít have the heart to mount a legitimate campaign against the real black-folk killas.

    It is us. At this time, we are our own worst enemies. We have allowed our youths to buy into a culture (hip hop) that has been perverted, corrupted and overtaken by prison culture. The music, attitude and behavior expressed in this culture is anti-black, anti-education, demeaning, self-destructive, pro-drug dealing and violent.

    Rather than confront this heinous enemy from within, we sit back and wait for someone like Imus to have a slip of the tongue and make the mistake of repeating the things we say about ourselves.

    Itís embarrassing. Dave Chappelle was offered $50 million to make racially insensitive jokes about black and white people on TV. He was hailed as a genius. Black comedians routinely crack jokes about white and black people, and we all laugh out loud.

    Iím no Don Imus apologist. He and his tiny companion Mike Lupica blasted me after I fell out with ESPN. Imus is a hack.

    But, in my view, he didnít do anything outside the norm for shock jocks and comedians. He also offered an apology. That shouldíve been the end of this whole affair. Instead, itís only the beginning. Itís an opportunity for Stringer, Jackson and Sharpton to step on victim platforms and elevate themselves and their agenda$.

    I watched the Rutgers news conference and was ashamed.

    Martin Luther King Jr. spoke for eight minutes in 1963 at the March on Washington. At the time, black people could be lynched and denied fundamental rights with little thought. With the comments of a talk-show host most of her players had never heard of before last week serving as her excuse, Vivian Stringer rambled on for 30 minutes about the amazing season her team had.

    Somehow, weíre supposed to believe that the comments of a man with virtually no connection to the sports world ruined Rutgersí wonderful season. Had a broadcaster with credibility and a platform in the sports world uttered the words Imus did, I could understand a level of outrage.

    But an hourlong press conference over a man who has already apologized, already been suspended and is already insignificant is just plain intellectually dishonest. This is opportunism. This is a distraction.

    In the grand scheme, Don Imus is no threat to us in general and no threat to black women in particular. If his words are so powerful and so destructive and must be rebuked so forcefully, then what should we do about the idiot rappers on BET, MTV and every black-owned radio station in the country who use words much more powerful and much more destructive?

    I donít listen or watch Imusí show regularly. Has he at any point glorified selling crack cocaine to black women? Has he celebrated black men shooting each other randomly? Has he suggested in any way that itís cool to be a baby-daddy rather than a husband and a parent? Does he tell his listeners that theyíre suckers for pursuing education and that theyíre selling out their race if they do?

    When Imus does any of that, call me and Iíll get upset. Until then, he is what he is ó a washed-up shock jock who is very easy to ignore when youíre not looking to be made a victim.

    No. We all know where the real battleground is. We know that the gangsta rappers and their followers in the athletic world have far bigger platforms to negatively define us than some old white man with a bad radio show. Thereís no money and lots of danger in that battle, so Jesse and Al are going to sit it out.

    Jason stated that they were being "led improperly" by a pair of opportunistic dirtbags (Sharpton and Jackson), and turned needlessly into victims.

    Being from KS, I've been reading JW's columns for years. I've never agreed with everything he's had to say on the Sportsfront, but his columns are usually must read, as it usually provokes discussion. It's a shame he's not on the Sports Reporters much anymore (I think he was booted?)

    JW hit it right on the head on this one

    I read in the KC Star Jason is also going to be Oprah this week on this topic.
