A little over a year after being fired for making what were perceived as racist and sexist comments about the Rutgers women's basketball team, Don Imus is courting controversy again over a potentially racist remark made about an athlete.
When sports host Warner Wolf explained that Adam "Pacman" Jones who was suspended in 2007 following a Last Vegas nightclub shooting incident had been arrested six times, Imus asked, "What color is he?"
A slightly confused Wolf responded, "He's African American."
Imus then said, "Well, there you go. Now we know."
Before anyone asks, the fact that Imus speaks out on a felon and thug like "Pacman" Jones instead of the innocent girls of Rutgers makes no difference. Especially when race wasn't a relevant issue at any point in today's story. IMUS brought up the race issue this time around and while I was willing to give the guy a second chance before, he's got no one but himself to blame for the inevitable media outbreak.
Game, set, match to Grimis. Hell, these type of things always happen in 3's: the Red Sox reverse the curse (YES!!!), my unbeaten fantasy team suffers its first loss, and now Dubya wins! As the mighty Meat Loaf once told us all, 2 outta 3 ain't bad.
