First they came for Don Imus…

“It is our feeling that this is only the beginning. We must have a broad discussion on what is permitted and not permitted in terms of the airwaves.” – Rev. Al Sharpton

As I mentioned here the other day, I’m pretty sure Don Imus had no idea that his calling the Rutgers University women’s basketball team a buncha nappy headed hoes would eventually end up costing him both his job with MSNBC as well as his job with CBS.

At first it looked like he might be able to apologize his way out of this, maybe spend a little time at the same rehab Isaiah Washington went to after he called one of his closeted co-workers a “faggot” while he was choking the shit out of some other guy.

While he was paying lip service to the Rev. Al Sharpton, Imus made it a point to note that it’s not like he invented the phrase nappy headed ho. In fact, he only learned it himself from rappers, who say shit like that all the time. If he has his life ruined for saying it once, while these other d-bags get to continue to say it all the time, isn’t that kind of a double standard?

Rapper and leader in The Fight for a Man’s Rights Snoop Dogg addressed this issue in an interview with MTV. According to Snoop Dogg, when a rapper calls a black woman a ho it’s different than the way Imus used the term.

To wit:

“[Rappers] are not talking about no collegiate basketball girls who have made it to the next level in education and sports. We’re talking about ho’s that’s in the ‘hood that ain’t doing sh–, that’s trying to get a n—a for his money. These are two separate things.”

I couldn’t have said it any better myself.

But you have to wonder how long Snoop Dogg will be able to use such terms to refer to women who really are hoes. If the likes of Rev. Al Sharpton and the rest of these d-bags can have Don Imus dropped like a bad habit from both MSNBC and CBS, how hard would it be for them to have a Snoop Dogg dropped from Geffen Records?

Take for example the nappy headed ho who accused the Duke lacrosse team of gang raping her. They brought her trifling ass in for DNA testing and come to find out she had the gism of five different men swirling around in that nasty, cavernous hoo-hah of hers – none of which, I’ll have you know, belonged to anyone on the Duke lacrosse team. We can still call her a ho, right? I mean, whoring was literally this woman’s life’s work.

I thought Imus brought up a good point when he noted that the Rev. Sharpton has been on his ass all week to apologize, but Sharpton himself has yet to apologize for accusing the Duke lacrosse team of being a buncha gang rapists. Shit, he’s yet to apologize for the thing with that nappy headed ho Tawana Brawley, and that’s been going on 20 years ago!

Finally, shouldn’t the real issue be that there are so many unscrupulous women in our community? If there weren’t, phrases like nappy headed ho would’ve never been invented in the first place. I’m not saying what Don Imus said was right, but if we want to get rid of such terms, perhaps we should start by getting rid of the kind of women who inspire us to use them in the first place.

Am I right, or am I right?

    I mean, niggas mighta used variations of it, but it’s been at least 20 years since Eazy grabbed a stupid bitch by her nappy-ass weave.

  • AZ

    I think people should stop putting all women on some petistool…face it some women are hoes…in this case these women aren’t hoes they are actually working hard to make something of them selves…do you really think Imus listens to rap c’mon

    Everybody blames rap for something…since when have rappers been the status quo or models for standard behavior

    It’s a problem that all of America has by LOOKING UP TO ALL CELEBS…STOP AND THINK FOR YOURSELF

    ^”I couldn’t have said it any better myself.”

    Classic bol.

    I personally object to ridding the Black community of nappy headed hoes as they can sometimes be hella fun!

  • Fernando

    Good point Bol.

    Everybody is reaching on this whole double standard of Imus and Hip-Hop.

    First of all. I never see rap artists singling out Black women as Hoes. I think they talk about all sorts of women as hoes. Asians, Latinos, Whites, etc. etc.

    Second. Its not like rap music is the only genre that uses these phrases or is sexist. Just about all music revolves around disputes between the different sexes, and I could find at least 100 rock albums with just as many references to bitches or hoes.

    Third. Yes rappers use the N-word, and thus a 66 year old white-hick ex-drug addict got confused and thought he could say those “types” of things. But people making the “double standard” debate really dont listen to lyrics. The N-word is used all the time in rap, but mostly as a term of endearment. Sometimes its used in malice, but thats just the ghetto for ya.

    Fourth. Its seems funny that people are all quick to point out rappers, but ignore the fact that the major record labels are the ones pushing low brow entertainment to mostly young white males.

    Finally. The real losers in all of this is once again the black community. Once again playing the victim and pretending to care what some shock jock said. Yet there is never going to be this kind of outcry against the “prison culture” that is taking hold of black youth and confining them to a life of poverty. The sad fact that there is no divide between hip-hop as entertainment and a lifestyle means that black youth see rapping, slanging, pimping as viable means to make it when it usually leads to nothing. Especially with a war on drugs that is centered primarily as a war on poor people. I dont see hip-hop as a form of self-hatred as so many in the media are trying to say, but the emulation of what these ENTERTAINERS are rapping about cant be good for all the young black youth that watch 106th & park & think that balling & pimping is the right way to live.

    You aint never lied. Plus, you gotta realize that we’re talking about women. they sensitive no matter what color or grade of hair. You know if a chick is fat, nappy headed, or a ho they dont want you to say nothing about it. Especially not a ol ass white nigga. Alot hoes trippin around my way that never even heard of this asshole and hell, niether have I. Black people dont watch MSNBC any way. Stop trippin cause when luda say it on a song, or ya man call you that, you like it. And they should make Fat albert apologize to those lil white boys.

    “First they came for Don Imus…”

    I can’t believe you’re using this reference for this situation. I’ve never seen anyone dedicate so much energy to push forth their own ignorance.

  • Cortez

    First of all, I am sure you (Bol) could have said it better than Snoop, but I digress. Snoop made a valid and important point. I have seen and known plenty of “nappy headed hoes”. Using “street slang” in a song to paint a clear narative of what you have seen or experienced is entirely different than slandering a specific group of people as “hoes” for no rhyme on reason. (I assume without a hotcomb or a relaxer they are nappy-headed.) Apparently MSNBC & CBS has a right to hire and fire Imus for this under the terms of their contract so I have no particular issue with any censorship concerns. I do agree with one of his comments, I don’t find any of those chicks (white or black) on the Rutgers team attractive either but that is besides the point.

    I am at a loss to figure out how Imus had a significant audience in the first place. He talks like he has a set of balls in is mouth and the words you can make out aren’t particularly funny or entertaining. Are there that many idiots listening to the radio? Apparently so.

  • The DJ Formerly Known as N-CREDIBLE

    It is not about the term, also if the sho fits wear it, but this is about the females he called hoes when they are not. Second, no white person is allowed to refer to our hair as nappy, especially in the context and tone he said it. Take nigga for example. Yes we say it all the time but we be damned if a white guy uses it, for example Kramer. Catch my drift…

    These rappers ain’t just talking about no black hos, they deal with more WHITE AND NON BLACK HOS THAN BLACK ONES. THEY MIGHT DID NOT RAPE HER BUT THOSE DUKE PLAYERS ARE STILL HOOLIGANS. THESE WITE FOLKS NEED TO WAKE UP. I AM PRETTY SURE AIN’T NO RAPPER INFLUENCED IMUS IN THAT WAY. WE SHOULD LET HIM HAVE HIS JOBS BACK BECAUSE THAT MAN IS OLD AND ON HIS LAST LEG. HE IS DYING AND WISH HE COULD HAVE EVERLASTING LIFE BUT HE IS COMING TO GRIPS THAT HE IS FIXING TO KICK THE BUCKET.

  • Pancho

    hmm…interesting….

    Honestly…there should be a limit to the amount of ignorance that should be allowed on the media. You always see a susbstantial amount of ignorance on tv/radio (‘cough’…BET…’cough’).

    To me…what Mr. Imus said is VERY inappropiate and ignorant…he should have been reprimanded, but not fired. If BET and other networks can show high levels of ignorance with no consequences…then Imus should be able to at least keep his job.

    I wonder…what Al Sharpton has to say about BET…when he so passionately tries to have Imus’s head roll on a silver platter (and has succeeded).

    I feel for the Rutgers women’s basketball team though….they are the only innocent victims in this ordeal.

    (oh…we can call nappy-headed hoes nappy headed hoes if they are INDEED nappy headed hoes…’cough’…Vida Guerra…’cough’…lol).

  • tseliot

    good points, bol. i’m sorry, but if isaiah washington continues to act, having gone through “rehab,” and don imus gets fired, it means that society is telling us that marginally racist comments are far worse than blatant and violent homophobic behavior (by someone considered more “socially acceptable” than imus, to boot!).

    it’s a terrible double standard, honestly, and snoop’s certainly not one to talk, having had his share of problems with drugs as of late. the argument is that imus was fired because he was spreading a negative stereotypes across public airwaves. well, rappers constantly defend improper material in their songs with the “artistic fiction” defense, i.e. that they’re speaking ABOUT a situation that “might occur,” not one that DID occur, necessarily, and obviously not about the rapper, himself. in light of snoop’s recent flurry of drug related problems, himself having his own child, shouldn’t his music–perhaps his entire public persona–be censored, or “fired,” as well?

    so a big fuck you to snoop, and a big fuck you to sharpton, who takes on cases regardless of their merit (see: duke, brawley, etc.), which only leads me to believe that he’s more concerned about his own holier-than-thou public image than any social matter–he’s become a puppet of his purported image.

    and, anyway, what imus did was wrong and completely inexcusable, but the flurry of public reaction by people who have no business speaking is also wrong–and more than that, it’s hypocritical.

    Dr Flav.

    I hope you enjoy the rest of your life serving people who understand the world. You are nothing.

    The struggle is in your own minds. Wallowing in your struggle leaves you with nothing but excuses and a constant victim complex. Poor you. It must be really hard to live in a country of wellfare, college grants, business loans, & endless opportunity.

    Oh wait, let me guess, the man is holding you down. I always forget about that. It must be nice to always have an excuse for your own ineptitude. Too bad most of my points are coming from successful black people who are tired of watching their own race squander endless opportunity to pursue a life of diamonds, rims, & puss. Maybe you should listen to Eddie Robinson, Charles Barkley, Bill Cosby & others that are becoming more and more ashamed of what your culture has become. If the energy was concentrated on doing the right things instead of always looking to be given hand-outs “repirations” and coddled by the government, things might change.

    But self pity mongrols like Nbred, TPAR, & Dr Fag would rather blame their life away instead of thinking logically. Guess what, nobody feels sorry for you anymore. To live in this country and constantly underachieve is a joke.

  • These Posts Are Racist

    Fernando-

    I don’t attack you personally, I attack your ideas which are racist. Do you remember your comments about Muslims and Arabs? Do you think your discussion about Blacks in America is really constructive or thought provoking? No, it is filled with racist hate filled generalizations.

    This isn’t a personal discussion, but since you attacked me personally, I am a graduate of an ivy league law school and grew up in the poorest of circumstances…but what you fail to understand is this isn’t about me or N-Cred or Dr. Flav its about yours and BOL’s ignorant hate filled ideas that are put forth as constructive thought provoking opinions/facts…which they are not.

  • Fernando

    Great quote Nbred. Its amazing what those community colleges will teach you. I never said I know it all. so your quote is essentially meaningless. Im just ascribing to the train of thought that many prominent blacks have put forth & I agree with.

    And putting out lame quotes by Ice Cube and everybody “co-signing” about how I dont understand the ghetto on Bol’s message board was one of the gayest things I have ever seen.

    The ghetto is shit. Its not cool. Nobody that matters is impressed by knowledge of the ghetto. Its not complex either. Ive been through ghettos & have family & friends that grew up there. Its mostly underachieving poor people that milk the government & never make the most of whatever abilities they have (math, art, science, whatever) But I guess since gimps like you idolize growing up hard the ghetto life, there in lies the problem. Self hating on blacks that make it out and dont talk “street” is something I see all the time, and thats one reason why the “struggle” continues. The term sellout or uncle tom makes it un-cool to talk professionally. Thats weak minded.

    Fernando’s Strategy:

    He sets up a Straw Man and knocks it down…and says he won the argument. Very typical of hate mongers. “The ghetto is shit. Its not cool. Nobody that matters is impressed by knowledge of the ghetto…etc. etc. etc.” Neither N-Cred, DR. Flav or myself have ever put forth such ludicris assertions…but yet you say so, then disagree and say we’re weak minded?

    Hysterical. Address a real issue and I will debate/discuss it with you. Until then, I’ll ignore you and you can continue with your straw man arguments.

    I recommend my other knowledge seeking brothers do the same.

  • Fernando

    You do attack. Therefore I respond.
    If the only thing you do is look for racism everywhere instead recognizing the real, then you are nothing more than a pansy hearted bleeding heart liberal that wants to throw money & give away everything to people that dont deserve it.

    So let me get this straight. Since you think I am racist, here is the opposite of what I am saying which must be your views….

    There is nothing wrong with black culture or the influence of rap on young impressionable black youth.

    The only reason that many black men dont stick around to father their kids, or that there is a 70% baby-out-of-marriage rate, or that welfare and poverty numbers are really high relative to actual population is all because of the white man. Its because of slavery and drugs forced on you by the white man that there are so many problems.

    Or maybe there are no problems in your view. If thats the case, then Ill shut up right now and you can continue living in denial.

    So please, Im interested in hearing a long diatribe about all the wrongs the white man did to black people for the 300,000th time. Im sure deflecting blame will get some things done this time.

    you are obviously blinded by your quest to find racism everywhere. Hence your name.

    I said that the perpetuation of calling well spoken blacks uncle toms or sellouts is weak-minded. There is no shame in speaking proper english, unless of course you are black, in which you will face ridicule from your own culture. I never said you were weak minded….even though you are. And Dr Fag was the one who put forth the Ice Cube quote aimed at me saying that I had remedial knowledge of the ghetto, as if that is some type of qualification to talk about any social issues regarding black people. And you and NBRED Co-signed.

    Hold up stop! Think about this, there was a time when each and everyone of your mothers were young ladies. Now think about all the things they were called. Do you think of your own mother in that way. NO I BET. I bet if you could here some of the things that men used to call your mothers back in the day you would curl up like babies and cry yourselves to sleep. (no bol)

    Let’s break it down to the basics. When a person has many many bad things about the opposite sex. It’s obvious dislike for the opposite sex. When your good to bad things to say about the opposite sex is 99 to 1 then it’s safe to same that you must find comfort in the same sex. (u homo)

    Bol you have set the bar so low for yourself, that a garbage pointing out the obvious blog gets you complements. Marinate on that for a little bit.

    To the Fernando fella. I am pitching this idea to NBC Dateline. It’s called “To catch an internet tough guy”. Here’s how the show works: Chris Henson tracks down keyboard racist and e-thugs with a team of the worlds greatest infomation theives. Then he shows up to their home with a transcript of the garbage they posted on the internet and a gang of angry brothers. The angry mob waits in the bushes for him and stomp the sh*t out of him when he comes outside. If everything works out, I hope to see you on the show someday. That is, if “To catch a predator” doesn’t get you first.

Arent you aware of the climate out there on the airwaves? Nobody is playing by the rules anymore jerk. The idea of a balanced reasonable view is so fucking dead and buried. Everyone is playing to their own bias. Don’t line up with effin BillOReilly and them right wing scumbags and attack Imus’ critics.(I am not even gonna say their names cos draggin AS and JJ into is is the biggest diversion from the real issue since the Iraq war).
    As for the rappers. First of all they are censored on radio and TV. They bleep shit out and turn the word backwards and replace offensive language and put out radio versions and parent advisories and all kinds of crap. They arent gonna open the books on rappers because of Imus. Tipper Gore did that back in the 80′s. Its done. Youre gonna protect Snoop Doggs right to call out whores??

    >>But you have to wonder how long Snoop Dogg will be able to use such terms to refer to women who really are hoes. If the likes of Rev. Al Sharpton and the rest of these d-bags can have Don Imus dropped like a bad habit from both MSNBC and CBS, how hard would it be for them to have a Snoop Dogg dropped from Geffen Records?

    To the Fernando fella. I am pitching this idea to NBC Dateline. It’s called “To catch an internet tough guy”. Here’s how the show works: Chris Henson tracks down keyboard racist and e-thugs with a team of the worlds greatest infomation theives. Then he shows up to their home with a transcript of the garbage they posted on the internet and a gang of angry brothers. The angry mob waits in the bushes for him and stomp the sh*t out of him when he comes outside. If everything works out, I hope to see you on the show someday. That is, if “To catch a predator” doesn’t get you first.

    ^^^^lmao

    “I thought Imus brought up a good point when he noted that the Rev. Sharpton has been on his ass all week to apologize, but Sharpton himself has yet to apologize for accusing the Duke lacrosse team of being a buncha gang rapists”

    that was a good point right there imus brought up sharpton needs to apologize himself but that will happen the day hell freezes over. good post bol and to the comment above me i would love to see that show.

    Free speech! anyone should be able to say wat they won’t!

    Imus should have been fired, though!

    he can say wat he want but not on CBS’s dollar; every body know u can’t just say anything @ work, for fear of being fired; except apparently Imus.

    and people comparing rappers to Imus is an idiot; this is not a situation of double standards. Imus is a old white guy cracking jokes at the expense of none hoes. Rappers are young black males (mostly) who use such language all day and usally are referring to hoes, whom if you called anything other than a hoe they’d still be hoes just called sumthin else right.

    Open Letter To My Brothas:

    I Love Y’all Too Damn Much To Say Nothing, So I gotta Say Something. No one should have a problem calling a spade a spade. I OverStand that when you’re speaking of a Hoe, you’re speaking of a certain element of woman- NOT ME. But wait, that’s the problem- You’re not talking about me. You’re NEVER Talking ’bout ME! Very few rappers are talking about Sistas such as myself who have worked legitimate jobs (with our clothes on) to put ourselves through college. Sistas who are working 9 to 5′s, 5 to 1′s, and 1 to 9′s to survive on our own. Maintaining to keep a roof over our own head, clothes on our back, and food on our table. NO KIDS, ’cause we don’t feel the BabyMama/BabyDaddy phenomenon that seems to be sweeping the African-American Nation. Sistas who are normally side by side with y’all through the struggle- when you let us. Nope, no one is ever talking about me. Or The Rutgers Sistas for that matter, except for Don Imus.

    Now I know his show is known for straight talk with a splash of crudeness and satire. But isn’t satire supposed to be used for poking fun at the powers that be? These young ladies were bothering no one but were singled out by this dude who looks like he just stepped off the plantation. Now, how do rappers factor into his equation? I’ll tell you. Calling a spade a spade is not the problem. But when that’s ALL you have to rap about … that’s a problem. The constant use of “Bitch”, “Hoe”, & “Nigga” is not only a sign of ignorance, but it also puts limits on your talents and capabilities. Black Men … You Are Better Than That!
    And I wont front like I’ve never used those words. I’m guilty as charged too. I had to do some serious soul searching and CHECK MY DAMN SELF. But I tell you this: I NEVER used that language in public. Now, you can’t walk down the street or use public transportation without hearing kids use the word “Nigga” like 40 times in a sentence. And most of these kids are NOT African-American. They are of different races, colors, creeds, and nationalities who will just as soon turn on you and talk about you- TO YOUR FACE- in their native language. So how the FUCK do they earn the right to call us Nigga like it’s all good? Try calling them something that is derogatory to their own people and see what happens. Now do y’all see where we fucked up? The repetitious use of those words created an avenue for cowards like Imus, and many others to call us out of our name, yet hide behind HipHop Culture when they are called on it. They wanna front like they’re down when they know FULL DAMN WELL they are using the slurs in it’s Proper Racist Content.

    And Damn Y’all, I Am NO fan of Al & Jessie. But at least they spoke up for the sistas. Right, Wrong, or Indifferent- No One else did. We in the HipHop Community certainly Did Not. We only had something to say when our favorite rappers were targeted. So, not only do we NOT sing the Praises of good decent folks- we Ignore them and say Nothing when they’re disrepected. Whoa!

    Come On Brothas, we all know what’s up. It’s all about Dollars & Cents. 70% of Rap Music is purchased by White males. So, because the record companies can only make money by appealing to their sensibilities and display what they feel is the true depiction of what black women represent, we will always have Bitch, Hoe, Nigga talk. Hey, they make the world go ’round. But then there are Sistas like myself and Brothas like many of you reading this, who are making it happen daily, yet we are Under-Represented or not represented at all. We need a balance. Because at the end of the day the only ones to suffer will be the innocent. The True Lovers of HipHop will get caught up in the Cross Fire. Just like my Rutgers Sistas.

    Just A Woman’s Perspective.
    Holla if ya hear me …

    P.S.- I don’t know if this’ll work but it’s just a suggestion. If ya really wanna Get Rid of Hoes, Get ya DICK Out of THEM! (They So Dirty).

    “Finally, shouldn’t the real issue be that there are so many unscrupulous women in our community.”

    That comment is exactly why black women are probably the most under-valued and sterotyped group in our society. Are you honestly saying that unscrupulous women exsist exclusively in the black community?!!

    Come on, our country is filled with unscrupulous women, let alone people in general. I suppose Monica Lewinsky was some sort of fallen angel in white piety?

  • Ali

    haha damn i gotta be honest i dont agree with u often but this was a good post

  • thecollinb

    I’m willing to put money up to co-produce “To Catch an Internet Tough Guy”, dead ass dead ass.

  • REALTALK

    YOU RIGHT……….DON IMUS WAS RIGHT………..ITS CALLED FREEDOM OF SPEECH

  • Bibs

    What’s crazy, I’ve heard Black chicks call each other that more than men. Especially mothers. So…Black women need to check that more so than Black men. there should have seen more Black women leaders in general make more of a deal of than anyone. but they were quiet until late.

    And Black men need to quit fronting like they want chicks with busted hair. I’m just saying, if that was true Jay would be dating Lauryn Hill circa 2007.

  • kt

    The term has it’s place – it just needs to be used in ‘context’ and not simply for shock tactics or to try and be down. My man was jus lookin for numbers and he got a phat zero!
