IT'S RACIST PEOPLE
The New York Times today described Don Imus' sacking thus: 'NBC News Drops Imus Show Over Racial Remark'.
Racial slur - fine. But calling something a 'racial remark' is first, bizarrely obtuse, if not entirely meaningless and second, chickening out. There's a strong argument to be made that 'nappy headed hos' is actually racist (in fact, I think it's a laydown misere). I suspect that's what the New York Times is saying. But why the hell don't they just come out with it?
