Robynmarie: "Can the AA community take credit for pressuring sponsors and others to get this creep off the air? If so, we do have the power to clean up OUR OWN houses."

Indeed. But what the Imus issue proves is the most effective way to kill a snake is to severe it's HEAD. And this is what I've (futilely) tried to explain in the The Bytch Ho Problem thread concerning the companies that distribute and finance the more offensive aspects of hip-hop music/culture.

There will ALWAYS be some fool Imus or 50 Cent willing to profit from appealing to what's base amongst us all. But when their so-called respectable, well-bred BACKERS are blamed and made to account for what those fools do, they're much less likely to see the light of day.


We can always count on you to blame, criticize or villify Black men for the evils committed by others.
