Are we to believe that Imus REALLY takes his cues for how to talk about and to Black women from gangsta rappers? WTF kinda idiots are Hutchinson trying to take us for, here?

I agree that Black women (and, btw, men) are often unfairly scapegoated for many of America's social ills. But gangsta rap and the hip-hop thug culture endures largely because the foks who are MOST responsible for the financing and disseminating it are almost NEVER confronted about what they're helping to enable. I say, again, if you want to blunt the violence and misogyny within hip-hop, you must confront the people and entities who finance, support and profit MOST from what Snoop and 50 do. That's Viacom, Sony, Vivendi, Universal, etc. Because THEY'RE the one's who enabled gangsta rap to become as potent as it is.

But let's be real, here: It's much easier for Hutchinson to decry how evil 50 Cents and Snoop Dogg are than it is criticize their much more wealthy, powerful sponsors and backers (foks who might, at least indirectly, back Hutchinson HIMSELF).

It's interesting. I mean, are we basically asserting that a man should not be able to call a woman ANY unflattering name simply because she’s a WOMAN? Because, really, if I want to call a woman a b*tch or ho whom I think DESERVES the title, and I'm angry enuff, I'm going to call her a b*tch or ho.

Fuhk that PC sh*t.

Because there ARE whorish, b*tch type women. And I don't think there should be any more special prohibition of someone citing such as there is, say, against calling an idiot and idiot or someone who cheats a cheater.

PS: I declare. In a minute, a Black man's going to have to get prior approval from a committee of rabid, man-eating dykes just to occasionally hold his own dyck in his hand.
