Imus Overload

Snapshots In My Time...
Of My Time.....Hauntings.

Am I sick of the Imus story. The news has gone into Imus overload. As a person of color he got what he deserved. The show was taken off the air and he was fired. Now please, let it go. On every news channel, it is the same story over and over again. I am just plain sick of hearing it now. He is gone, he has apologized (not that I think he was sincere).

Racism like his is bred in the bone. That is how he really feels. He was taught that feeling from birth. Look at his age. He comes from an era of real hate for black people. I only know of one who MAY (and it be a stretch) have had a change of heart when it comes to racism..George Wallace. He went from barring the school doors to black students trying to get an education, to changing his tune before he died. He wanted segregation forever! See him standing at the door of the University of Alabama, not wanting to let black students in. Later George Wallace supposedly had a change of heart. But only after a bullet.

It will be many generations in to the future before all that hate toward black americans will diminish or equality gained, if ever. Things have gotten a little better, but there still is a long way to go. It is just sad that the victory that the Rutgers team had in their game was diminished by all the hate from Imus.


  1. To bad they can't stop talking about scandals like Imus, Anna,her baby and Britney create and maybe honor the lives of oh, I don't know Kurt Vonnegut, and others that actually contribute to society
