There you go. Now we know...

Note - my apologies to the late great Nat King Cole...but this was the song that lept into my head when a certain Franklin e-mailed me with the line "guess for got ig'nant on the radio again!"
Shall we?

Rancid, that’s what you are
Rancid, though televised or on the radio
Like the stank of bigotry that clings to thee
How the thought of you does things to me (shudder)
Never before has someone been more

Rancid in every way
And forever more, that’s how you’ll stay
That’s why, asshole, its incredible
That someone so fucking unremarkable
Maintains listeners/advertisers/a fucking job despite being the living definition of rancidity!


Pause…consider…continue.

Okay, so that last line needs work, but fuck a duck…this bitch is operating on one cup of coffee and a double dose of aspirin.

Wince.

Shall we?

Don Imus is an asshole.

He’s also one of the 7 in 10 Americans who didn’t admit to race bias in a recent survey but was fucking bullshitting themselves.

What?
Oh c’mon, most people don’t admit to taking a piss in the shower but…yeah, mmmhmmm.

Anyhoo, Imus mouthing off about a football player being in legal trouble because he’s black and, after confirming that football player’s race, stating that "There you go. Now we know."…ugh…in an obvious attempt to connect the man’s legal drama with his blackness (and no, that bullshit about Imus claiming he said that shit because he felt the football player was being picked on because he is black doesn’t now, didn’t yesterday and never will pass the stank test) was simply an inevitable verbal display of bigotry.

Imus has a problem with race that shall not be overcome simply by placing him in daily contact with people of color any more than Strom Thurmond’s racist ass was enlightened by the sexual exploitation of a black woman on staff at his home or the birth of their child.

But my problem isn’t with Don Imus…it is with the listeners who attract the advertisers who are then used by the radio station ownership group (Citadel Broadcasting Corporation) to justify employing Don Imus.

I can’t help but wonder if the listeners, particularly those who tuned in after the nappy headed hos drama, aren’t also members of the 7 in 10 Americans who suffer from race bias but don’t admit it and loudly declare themselves not bigots as if you can announce yourself innocent of an indictment brought on by thy own motherfucking actions/word/listening habits.

And this bitch is looking for a list of every advertiser who is running on WABC…every fucking one of them.

My working, hard working American bitchified self damn well isn’t budgeting myself through a gas crisis so that I can support the motherfuckers who support Don fucking Imus.

There you go.

Now we know…

Maybe the last line could be:
Gets the money to let rancidity spew.

And, amen.

You know, if it hadn't been for a history of questionable and oh, hell, downright offensive screeds from his quarter... if he hadn't referred to a basketball team of young women by a disgusting racist AND sexist pejorative... I might be inclined to give him the benefit of the doubt.

The problem is, there's just no doubt left.

Melody said...

Now, see I am giving him the benefit of the doubt. It reminds me so much of people who are trying to prove how "down" they are that they start thinking they can speak as the black advocate. The bull he spouted about the Ruthers basketball team, I think, kinda scared him, now he's trying to be ├╝ber careful by taking the side of those he's previously insulted. It doesn't mean he isn't racist but I really believe he was attempting to prove that he isn't.

Melody...
I just can't give him that given his record. I think this is a case of Imus being super careful but not being able to catch himself on this one.

But you may be on to something.

Mayhap this is what it sounds like when a racist tries to prove he isn't.

Blink.

woodsba said...

The statement was knee jerk and not thought out........if he had thought it out he would have not said it. Now having said that....knee jerk or one's first thought is usually from their hearts. He's a racist.

It's hard to buy into his latest excuse when he has a history of being an asshole and a racist.

If in fact he was going for sarcasm, he damn well should of explained it after the offending line, instead of when everyone went ballistic..there would of been no doubt then.

Fuck Imus..

/facepalm

How many more days is it now?

All this uproar over what Don Imus said is for nothing. There are more important issues than this. It is obvious that the powers that be are ok with what that bastard said. He doesn't have a problem finding a job. Blacks are second class citizens. We are not respected. The only reason he got fired the first time was because of pressure from civil rights groups and so -called black leaders that ended up going on his show anyway. Otherwise, his honkey ass would still be working at the other station. The VP of citadel said that his apology is sufficient. Nothing is going to happen to the man. Pacman Jones is a criminal. If you get arrested 6 times don't tell me it was because he was in the wrong place at the wrong time!!

@ Angry Bitch - You just got a new fan!! I love your blog!

Annie said...

Is that dickslap still working in radio? Yeesh.

I don't listen to idjits on the radio who spew idiocy, inanity and play to the ign'ant demographic. I do, however, read your blog regularly. So, I hope you do post a list of their advertisers.

Now that is a list I would be interested to see!
