I lost all respect for Imus. Bowing down to the biggest racist of all, the self serving pig scam artist Al Sharpton. Go F yourself Al, you nappy headed racist pig.

He should be fired but I give him credit for apologizing to “you people”.

Out in the open...bring it all on CNN. Paula Zahn, are you listening? We still have lots of racism in our country and the post from the ignorant comment above supports it.

When can the black community come out against acts of self denigration? Humor remarks, in context of what Imus said, have FAR less if no damage compared to what is done to each other or in other forms of entertainment.

I don't get it, on one hand he calls girls ho's and is a racist, but when he calls the Tennesse black players pretty, um he's still a racist?

NBC/MSNBC ought to bury Imus's dead rotting corpse already. Hasn't anybody in management even noticed that he'd passed away? I just tune into his show to see if he's been administered his last rites and been put to rest.

Sharpton and Jesse are as big if not bigger racists than Imus will ever be! He was wrong and he admitted it.

I find it so funny the outrage over obvious humorous remarks but the media turning a blind eye to how black men speak and treat the women. Be real. Turn into the BET and see for yourself.

In total agreement, ever watch channels 53,54,55, things are said much worse.Imus does more good than these remarks.

Oh great, he's given a suspension & made an example of. Nice to see we're appeasing the racist Al Sharpton. Ever listen to all the racism that's freely played on Hip-Hop? Give me a break!

So he called black women "Nappy Headed Ho's." Is that such a big deal that the "Black Community" needs to be up in arms? Maybe the "Black Community" should focus on real problems, and not just a shock jock (who is white) who is cracking a joke. Maybe the "Black Community" Leaders should worry about issues such as Black on Black crime, gang warfare, unemployment, teen pregnancy, Drugs, etc etc.....

Stop using your resources on the wrong problems. WAKE UP!!!! You're battling against a radio disc jockey who's expressing his right to Freedom of Speech, but is only cracking a little race joke. Meanwhile, you have people in your community who are homeless, are victims of other people in your community, AND THEY NEED YOUR HELP.

Enough with the Imus bashing already. It's a comedy show and the remark, unfortunate as it was, was made in a comedy context. There are plenty of black comedians who say far worse and nothing is ever said about it. Perhaps the world's greatest publicity hound, Rev.Al should try watching the Dave Chappelle show. Let's not forget the good things that Imus has done for kids with cancer, for families effected by SIDS,for Autism awareness and for the plight of our diabled veterans. His program has been an important part of the fabric of New York for over 30 years and we should not lose sight of that. He said he was sorry. Lets move on.

I'm still loooking for the racist part- sexist perhaps. Does nobody remember that Sharpton was Tawana Brawley' mouthpiece- still waiting for the apology on that one.
