Imus Hates Barack People
"there's nobody on my staff who would still be working for me if they made a comment like that about anybody of any ethnic group" (source)
There is one reason and one reason only that Don Imus has been fired from his jobs at CBS radio and NBC television following his racist rant against blacks this past week: Barack Obama.
It is a well-known fact that various media and entertainment moguls who were previous Clinton-backers have turned a leaf and are openly supporting Obama. No doubt Les Moonves of CBS is one of them.
The rub? Well, it sure wouldn't help the cause of a Black presidential candidate if a major broadcaster didn't do anything to stop a racist like Don Imus from getting away with yet another anti-Black statement.
Bottom line: as long as Obama maintains a healthy threat against the Clinton establishment, America's gotta look like it cares about Black people -- something that doesn't come easy to a country founded on the blood, toil, exploitation and overall diminishment of Blacks.
