HOprah Watch: Oprah Still Harping on Imus Story; Read the Incredibly Stupid Comments

By Debbie Schlussel
**** UPDATE: OY! This is a TWO-DAY(!) Show (continues tomorrow). Move on, HOprah. Move on. ****
Enough already. HOprah–am I still allowed to call her that?–has several guests on today harping on the whole Imus thing . . . again.
Fortunately, the brilliant, courageous Jason Whitlock is on, but he is “balanced” out by several others saying that their sister or daugher has been called a ho. And it’s all Imus’ fault.
Oprah:

I think a lot of White people don’t understand. Ho . . . bitch . . . it has been a part of our history and our culture.

Uh, Oprah, I understand what it’s like to be called a “ho” and a “bitch.” But I’ve never made a federal case out of it.
Get a clue. And a life.

Stanley Crouch (who I thought was a reasonable man . . . until now):

4 out of 5 hip-hop albums are sold in the White suburbs. . . . They [White people] want to go on an audio safari.

Who are “they”? Why is it that while one can’t stereotype Black people with “they,” it’s okay to do so with Whites?
Here’s an FYI for Mr. Crouch: Plenty of us don’t want to go on an “audio safari.” But if you consider hip-hop albums an audio safari for White people, does that mean you are calling your own people who perform on those albums “animals”?
Just asking because safaris usually consist of viewing animals. And that is a pretty sad view on your part.
So sad that this whole discussion has degraded thusly. And that the “conversation” is still going on at all.
It happened. He said it. He got fired. Get over it.
***
Oy, Al Sharpton joins in on the “conversation.” No need to repeat what he said on HOprah. You’ve heard the same for the last week. Broken record.
***
Whitlock:

When White people do something, we [Blacks] go full steam [against them].

***
Crouch:

White people created rap.

It’s all Whitey’s fault. Thank you, sir, may I have another?
***
Students at Spelman College (a Black women’s college) on Imus:

It’s part of who he is. He raped us. He’s a racist man.

HUH?! Don Imus “raped” them?!

Whoops..missed the Hoprah show with Stanley Crouch(black writer)…but I am fairly sure that he would be inferring that black ‘arteests’ who talk the talk that is is about are “animals”.Not only is he one of a small handful of the best writers about jazz,but he wrote by far the best stuff about the hoeing out of Miles Davis-and I think was the only critic that levelled a plagerism charge on Davis and his collaborator Quincy Troupe for the autobiography ‘Miles’ which averages about 3 mf’s for every 4 words.

“It’s part of who he is. He raped us. He’s a racist man.”
If these black women get raped, chances are it will be by a brother. Most rapes are not interracial. Their brothers are calling them bitches and ho’s on a daily basis. Their brothers are listening to sexist rap music and are reinforcing their oppressive views of black women.

Orpah the whale is revelling in this. This is her reason for being. The only thing that separates her from Jackson/Sharpton is a billion dollars.

I would like to see the cd collections of the scarred for life Rutgers Team players. I wonder if Ludacris and other pieces of crap like him are part of their listening pleasure.

Instead of Stanley Crouch, she should have had on Russell Simmons. I’ve heard him bragging about how his market is white suburbia for the gargage he peddles. He was so proud of himself. He’s pathetic, like a parasite making money off white kids and his pretense of “helping” his old community by making money off them through phone cards. “Ho” and “Bitch” are part of their culture? And whites don’t “understand”? Oprah – how little do you think of yourself and your culture? I’d like to hear from Thomas Sowell.
