Where's my apology, Imus?

| Reddit | Tumblr | Digg | FARK

I'm glad that the Rutgers basketball team has accepted Don Imus' apology for his racist crack about them, but will the mainstream media please stop pretending as if this were Imus' first and only bigoted comment. Imus and his team have been making these kind of horrendously bigoted, racist, sexist, and homophobic jokes for years (going on ten years from what I've been able to find). Where's his apology to the black community for referring to Gwen Ifill as "the cleaning lady," simply because she's black? Where is his apology to Latinos for calling singer Gloria Estefan a ho? Where is his apology to gays and lesbians for saying it's okay to kill "homos"? Where is his apology to Jewish-Americans for joking about overturning Jewish tombstones and calling Post reporter Howie Kurtz a "boner-nosed, beanie-wearing Jew boy"?

It's all well and good that Don Imus has apologized to the women of Rutgers. Now let's hear him apology to the rest of America. You know as well as I that this man is going to get a big fat filthy contract on satellite radio. He needs to come clean about his ten-plus years of bigotry against everyone, and promise never to do it again, before anyone dares hire him again.
