Randi Rhoads drops the F-bomb numerous times in a public speech about Hillary and Geraldine Ferraro. Not only that but she referred to each woman as a "*****" on several occasions. She gets "Suspended". Don Imus says "Nappy headded ho's" once and gets immediatly fired. Whats wrong with this picture?

What is wrong? The rev. Al Sharpton is a racist because he only is on tv all day if a white person says something wrong which shouldn't happen IMO, but the other way around is everything allowed!!!

Won't happen. The media has made it where Caucasian people can't say anything race related to that degree.

Nothing is wrong with this picture. Imus attacked private citizens who did nothing to hold themselves out for public scrutiny except play basketball. Rhoads launched an attack on public figures who invite heat, scrutiny, and even scorn.
