I think Imus is a jerk, but I think it's hard to see him as a man who really dislikes blacks. He's just a loudmouth who insults people for a living. He's not racist.

Barkley? I've seen a lot of comments fom him that convince me that he doesn't like whites much at all. He is a racist.

Barkley is/was married to a white woman, has a couple of kids.

I didn’t take it as racist. Maybe a “white trash” stereotype. Sort of like when I drove up to West Virginia last week, and was surprised that people there actually wear shoes.

Doesn’t mean much. H.P. Lovecraft used to rant and rave to his wife about how the dirty Jews were ruining America. His wife would say, “Howard, remember — I’m a Jew!”

Yeah, and I thought Don Imus was funny too, but you see where it got him.

Barkley is a clown and was joking, I know that.

But the point is about a double-standard?

See I never thought Imus was funny and his joke sucked. I don’t think its so much a double standard (which definitly exists) its that you can get away with alot more if people think its a good joke.

Barkley probably treated her like property. Ever notice the only group in sports whiter than NHL hockey and NASCAR is the NBA wives?

I don't care for Imus myself.

I just found it interesting to compare Barkley's joke to Imus's joke and the different media attention and consequences.

Yes, seems lots of blacks married to whites are particlulary racist. Remember Bryant Gumbel?

“Barkley is/was married to a white woman,. . .”

Usually a sign of an inferiority complex, but only he would know for sure.

I sure as heck hope he is fired. When i heard about this little “joke” today, I was ENRAGED! Why is it that he will eventually be cleared of this, but people like Imus who were also “just joking” get canned???? Terrible double standard! Whites are now facing racism more than ever.

Yes, I’ve noticed; I am glad to know it’s not just me that see that, but someone else does also.
