"Mighty whities" revisited...

Received this from my brother-in-law Skip. Thanks, Skip, for pointing this out. For too long the world has turned it's head to those with a plank in their eye and shined a light on those with a speck in theirs:

Don Imus was fired for calling the Rutgers University basketball team "nappy headed hos". Sure, that was inappropriate, but did the punishment fit the crime? Maybe we should look at the two guys who pushed this issue until Imus was fired.

Jesse Jackson says it's a question of morality, and what's right and what's wrong.

Just so we're clear:
Imus Calling Black Women "nappy headed hos": Wrong

Jesse Jackson calling Jews "Hymies" and referring to New York as "Hymietown" : Right
(Washington Post, 1984)

Imus
Calling Black Women "nappy headed hos": Wrong

Jesse Jackson having an affair and Impregnating Karin Stanford, then using rainbow coalition funds to pay her $40,000 and purchasing a $365,000 house to keep her quiet:
Right

Jesse Jackson not paying child support for this child, and not visiting her:
Right

Jesse Jackson Saying Duke La Crosse Rape Suspects who have been acquitted "deserved the negative attention" because they weren't acting morally by hiring a stripper: Right

I'm glad we have someone with strong moral values like Jesse Jackson to make sure nobody makes racist jokes on radio stations!

Thanks for showing us what's right and what's wrong Jesse.

And who can forget Al Sharpton, another strong moral figure who knows the power of words: After District Attorney Steven Pagones failed to prosecute white suspects for raping a black girl (because evidence showed the story was fabricated) Al Sharpton accused Pagones Himself of raping the girl. Pagones successfully sued him for Defamation.
Right

But it gets better:
Imus Calling Black Women "nappy headed hos": Wrong

In 1995, Sharpton led a protest in Harlem against the plans of Freddy's Fashion Mart, a Jewish-owned clothing store, to expand into a black neighborhood. Sharpton told the protesters, "We will not stand by and allow them to move this brother so that some white interloper can expand his business." Three months later, an armed protester forcibly entered the store and burned it down, killing himself and seven others.
Right

Thanks Jesse and Al for showing us what's right and wrong. I'm glad we can finally see the light now. I'm glad you guys stopped this guy, and all his charities for sick and homeless children, that will now dry up. Thanks guys!

It's men like Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton who give Christianity in general and Ministers in particular a bad name as they profess to be men of God by taking the title while denying Him with their actions. That's what an unbelieving world finds simply unbelievable.

I'm an atheist, a segment of the population that is often accused of being unflaggingly liberal. But I am sick to death of today's society, which seems to make me the enemy just because of my white skin color.

I'm not exactly sure what Imus was trying to do with the remark he made, but I feel sorry for him for having to endure what I have heard is three hours of apologizing to these athletes. I doubt too many of them were even offended. Maybe Stringer was, but more likely, these "Christian" wackos saw it as publicity for them, not the team.

This really stinks, because I was really starting to love Rutgers WBB. They play an exciting game of hoops. Now I feel like I can't watch them.

I hope Imus can go to Sirius or somewhere soon. I have faith that he will persevere over the muzzling of free speech. If God does exist, God help this victim back on his feet so his voice can again be heard.

I agree with you, Cory. It's like I've said in past posts: Christians do more harm to the spread of the God's Word than anyone else. It really puzzles me why we see so much hate and un-forgiveness from the ones who are supposed to be spreading love and mercy.
