Don Imus: Take 2

Not that we needed any further confirmation, but apparently after a zillion years of being a radio personality/shock jock, Don Imus -- the ancient, shriveled up white supremacist that he clearly is -- still hasn't figured out the meaning of the term "politically correct".

And that's an understatement.

While discussing the oft-maligned career of pro football player Adam "Pacman"Jones, Imus's perennial racist itch obviously needed to be scratched when, after hearing of Jones's six arrests in the past 12 months, he needed to know Jones's race. Because, of course, using Imus's logic, race determines the presumption of guilt or innocence.

Imus's response when finding out Jones is black? "Well, there you go. Now we know."

Now we know what? This dude is wild for the night! Less than two years after making a national spectacle of himself due to his racist comments, he's right back at it! Without hesitation! Take that, darkies!

I guarantee he'll get another slap on the wrist and maybe be banished to his radio station's bastard network, but he will remain on the air until he dies. The powers that be have already made that painfully clear.

To Imus's defense, my fellow black journalist,'s Jemele Hill, was just last week temporarily suspended following the publication of her column, laced with heavy hints of anti-Semitism.

However, the difference is that the cynic in me can apply the law of semantics to Hill's words while I cannot make the same claim for Imus's words.

Does it mean that I'll see him there if I hope that he rots in hell?
