    It's fine to feel offended or uncomfortable after a joke. Just don't force your feelings on everyone else.

    Imus said many racist things, definitely should have been fired. Wouldn't be surprised if Patrick didn't know the other instances, such as this one. Guy is definitely a racist and it's annoying to hear comedians defending him all the time. He's a racist guy that made a joke and got fired because it became obvious he was racist.

    That being said, obviously I think if he wasn't racist the nappy comment would have been fine.

    I think Pmelt and JB discussed this incident too a while back. I wish I could remember the episode.
    I don't find Imus funny at-fucking-all, mainly because his "comedy" pushes the racism gray area, but as far as stuff like Patrice and even Pmelt n friends, they're not riddling their bits with deadpan slurs...if you don't like it, you don't have to watch/listen.
    I really need to drink my own fluids.

    Saying someone is racist is a matter of opinion. We make racial jokes all the time and that doesn't make us actually racist. Imus runs a ranch in New Mexico to help underpriveleged children with cancer - many of which are black. So making blanket statements about racism are pretty unfounded.

    Second of all, if someone is racist, that doesn't mean they don't have the same rights to free speech and the right to make jokes like the rest of society. And you alleging a history of racism is not pertinent to this case, because the upheaval that led to him getting fired revolved around the "nappy-headed hos" comment, and nothing else.

    Being Racist isn't a crime. You can think racist thoughts and even make racist speeches as long as you don't incite violence. I mean really, people really need to man up about being offended. Yes it's not nice to be deliberately rude to someones face (You want some of these fries etc) but who really cares if someone makes a joke that slurs your race or sex or what the fuck ever. I mean if I was watching TV and someone kept making derogatory comments about overweight British white guys I'd either laugh or change fucking channel.

    Where the fuck is rational thought?

    I did make a point in that meandering paragraph right?

    Also, MEET ME SOMEWHERE ahahaha genius

    Nowhere did I make a blanket statement. I said he is racist, not everybody who makes racist jokes is racist.

    Donating to cancer is because he has cancer, obviously some other cancer patients are black. That's irrelevant.

    Sure he probably got fired unfairly just for the nappy comment, but my point is a racist and a non-racist getting fired for a joke is not the same thing.
