IMO the bottom line is, this is really all about white privilege in this country. As long as white privilege exists, there will always be a fresh crop of Imus' who stand in line awaiting the opportunity to espouse thier racists views, opinions, comments, over the airways and other media and then try to hide behind a diaphonous cloud of finger pointing self righteousness.

After all, who wields the most power? A white man who has as his frequent guests men who hold some of the highest most powerful offices in the government--Senators, Congressmen, PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATES for pete's sake, Or the rappers whose lyrics would be largely ignored by whites if thier own children weren't so intent on buying it and playing it loudly from their homes and cars? Who has the most power to sway the opinion of the nation to adhere to their point of view? All the while claiming that it is a constitutional breech to sensor even the most blatant racist remarks.

White privilege transcends all else in this country along with the motto: TO THINE OWN(WHITE)SELF BE TRUE!

There can be no true end to racism in this country or any other until whites acknowledge the existance of and give up all rights to WHITE PRIVILEGE.
