Imus Needs More People

Don Imus, clearly going full steam into panic/damage control mode, announced this morning on his radio show that his comments yesterday about a football player's criminal past being somehow related to his race were misunderstood and taken out of context.

For 100% clarification, I will print the brief exchange between Imus and his loser sidekick who shall remain anonymous:

Imus: “What color is he?”
“He’s African American.”
Imus: “Well there you go… now we know.”
24 hours later he's singing a brand new song. The Puff Daddy remix:

"What people should be outraged about is that they arrest blacks for no reason," Imus said Tuesday. "I mean, there's no reason to arrest this kid six times. Maybe he did something once, but everyone does something once."
Too late. Pacman Jones is pissed -- and seizing this opportunity to finally play the role of the victim after he's been cast as the evil villain for that past two years. In an ironic move, Pacman was quoted as saying "I will pray for him." I wonder if Pacman was praying the day he decided to made it rain in a Vegas strip club with more than $81,000 in cash, inciting a riot that resulted in a triple shooting. But I digress...

Sportsillustrated.com is reporting that there will likely be no consequences for Imus. Big surprise.
