Yesterday, I posted part of the terrific column by Kansas City Star columnist Jason Whitlock on the whole Imus debacle. Well, since then, Whitlock appeared on several national TV news shows, including MSNBC’s annoying bowtied geek, to discuss further what he said in the column.
And all I can say is: Jason Whitlock, Bravo! I do disagree with one comment he made, though. He said that much of Black America has no respect for Weird Al Sharpton and Jesse Salad-spitter Jackson. And while, they’re certainly not as popular as they once were, they’re both still mighty popular enough in Black America–as evidenced by the huge crowds and following they have, at least here in Detroit. And as evidenced by Imus’ dual firings.
The video is under five minutes and well worth watching (not for Bow-tie, but definitely for Whitlock).
BTW, love hearing how the bow-tied FAKE conservative likes racist Al Sharpton a lot personally. I’ve had my own several experiences with Sharp, including when I slaughtered him on ABC’s “Politically Incorrect” and he couldn’t take it. I know it won’t take much suspension of belief to believe me when I say that the guy is NOT personally likeable. Period. He’s the same in person as he seems on TV–a bigoted thug.
Thanks to The Big Lead for the tip.
