Don Imus went back on the radio today and has two new nappy-headed sidekicks. Comedians Tony Powell and Karith Foster joined him and will be discussing race relations among other topics on the show. Imus also made a statement for the ladies of the Rutgers Basketball team:

“I will never say anything in my lifetime that will make any of these young women at Rutgers regret or feel foolish that they accepted my apology and forgave me. And no one else will say anything on my program that will make anyone think I did not deserve a second chance.”

Yeah, yeah, yeah, Don. We bet he would say pretty much anything to get his ass back on the air.

Chamillionaire will appear on Larry King Live this evening on the show that will discuss Don Imus’ return to radio and whether or not he deserved the second chance he is getting.

    ^^^^ Smh.

  • Just Sit And Be Pretty

    Well, if we’re all about second chances, can the exes at Grey’s Anatomy puhleeeeeze bring Isaiah Washington back. It’s not the same w/out Dr. Burke!!

  • BETTYEJ

    Who in their right mind believe anything that comes out of his mouth. That hair he got on his head looks mighty na_ pp_y to me! lol

  • shawn

    shame on those black people accepting to work with him but then again why am i not surprised? there must also be some “slave“ willing to please his master

  • mydixiewrecked

    that dude is no more racist than those clowns at Faux news… I’m riding with Damon Wayans on this one.

  • weezy

    There is always a black person out there willing to be bought

  • Mr O Dot

    Ps,

    why you guys all upset?? No such thing as a second chance anymore?

  • Lovely and Amazing

    All Don Imus did was repeat the hatred balck men have for dark skinned black women. Just like the Spike Lee movie he referred to. Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton hate the dark skinned rutgeers team and probably called them worse behind closed doors. Don Imus was scapegoated for black racism and ignorance.

  • JillyBean819

    shawn & weezy,

    I agree with you both. After all that Imus said, what respectable black person would want to work with him? I wouldn’t work with him is someone offered me 20 billion dollars to do so b/c, imo, working with him would make it seem as if black people are okay with what he said.

  • justme

    notice he didnt say that he didnt mean it, and that he was sorry, all he said was that he would not say anything like that (on his show) anymore…… so it aint no tellin how hhe relly feels, or what he is sayin about black people at home! he is basically stating that he is still a racist,ignorant ass, only this time around he is smart enough to not say the sh*t on his damn show! pathetic!

    “that dude is no more racist than those clowns at Faux news… I’m riding with Damon Wayans on this one.’

    I’m with ya.^^^^^

    @JillyBean819

    I don’t know…20 billion dollars and I would be right up there with his ass…hell 1 million will do lol.

  • Mr O Dot

    lol, yall ignant

    Was it bad what he said? Yes. However, part of me wanted to tell Vivian Stringer to shut the hell up and stop playing the “woe is me card.” I kept seeing her on television and she was making all black women sound like victims, and I’m no victim.

    Exactly, as if he does not have rights. He can say whatever he wants to say. Doesn’t mean it’s right or that he should be some people in here want to take away his constitutional rights. Hell how do you know that anybody isn’t dogging black folks behind closed doors? You don’t and never will so what difference does it make. Let him be full of hatred if he wants to.

  • Anonymous3

    so he managed to get two Tom’s to make him acceptable in Black America’s eyes???? I don’t think so

    Why is it that Bill O’Reilly, John Gibson, and Glen Beck can get away with saying racist things on a daily basis, but Imus was fired for his remarks. We should hold anyone that makes disparaging remarks about someones race, religion or sexual preference accountable.

    The difference between Imus and the other people mentioned above, is Imus was against the war and spoke out about it on his show.

    Of course what he said was offensive, but Fox News making false claims about Obama’s childhood was also offensive. Glen Beck asking the first Muslim congressman to “prove to me that you are not working with our enemies” Is also offensive. I believe that Imus’s firing was more about politics and less about the hurt feelings of people within the African American community.

    Now he got 2 nappy headed coon’s by his side. SMH

    I agree with you, rainlillie. No offense, but I think all those men are nothing but racist white ‘honkies’, in the words of my grandma.

    So true and to add on why is it that black people get away with saying racist things on a daily basis? I watched about 4 mins. of Boondocks the other night and was in shock. How the hell do they let them play that? Is it b/c it’s black characters saying racial and stereotypical stuff or b/c the creators/director is black that it is excused? Please, if you’re gonna be outraged by someone’s racist comments then be outraged at all of them not just the WHITE FOLKS.

    It’s so funny how we as a black race, can sit here each and every day and call each other nappy headed, black as tar, and n*ggas, but get real pissy when a white person says it????? If we stop saying it to each other and especially in front of company, they have no choice but to stop saying it…..Whites aren’t the ones setting our race back, we are. We are our own worse enemy!

    @dani

    I never watched Grey’s so why did Isaiah get kicked off?

  • mydixiewrecked

    @ rainlillie

    my sentiments exactly!!!

    Hannity and Colmes (Faux News) attempt to belittle the black community on a daily basis but are never reprimanded. Imus’ remarks were made to entertain and shock, he was not placed on the air to “make nice”, hence shock jock. If anyone on here believes that Imus is the grand dragon then you definitely don’t need to listen to Howard Stern’s show. The intent of these shows is to boost ratings and revenue for the parent company (Viacom). They could care less about embracing or supporting a minority group. What’s really scary is that the same company that owns BET also owns Faux News.
