"Nappy-Headed Hos" is what Don Imus called the Rutgers women's basketball team on his National radio show. He apologized on Al Sharpton's radio show saying that it was a joke that went too far and that he's not a bad person.
MSNBC and CBS have decided to not fire Don, but suspend his show for two weeks.
MSNBC issued this statement: "Our future relationship with Imus is contingent on his ability to live up to his word."
The incident happened last week and many people are still pissed that action was not taken earlier. Don has offered to apologize to the Rutgers team in person, but it's unclear whether or not they will take him up.
Personally, Don is an old geezer and probably didn't know that brain thoughts sometimes travel to the mouth, forming words. All he had to do was substitute "Nappy-Headed" with "Dumbass" and this wouldn't be a problem. Is this poor ho back on the sauce?
Don scares my ass though. He looks like he's been to a lynching or two. I'm just saying!
