Charles Barkley recently weighed on the Imus situation:
CHARLES Barkley thinks Don Imus should have been suspended, but not fired, for insulting the Rutgers women’s basketball team. On last night’s “Boomer Esiason Show” on MSG, the NBA star said, “It was an insult to those young ladies. . . . He owed them an apology. I think a suspension was warranted.” Barkley criticized civil rights leaders for ignoring Imus’ insults against Jews, Asians and others. “Anytime something happens, you [media] guys have a magnet on Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton, like they speak for all black people . . . which is unfortunate and unfair. Al and Jesse have said racist things before. I don’t think you can have selective prosecution . . . that’s not right, that’s not fair.”
If Imus would have cut Jesse or Sharpton a check in the back office, everything would have been fine. See what happens when you don’t want to be ho when it’s time to be a ho. Imus needs to talk to Don Juan or Kim Kardashian to be put on some of this pimp-ho game and how it works.
