It is about white privilege, but some rappers are their croonies. But, as I have tried to say elsewhere, its important not to equate the two.

One, because sexism among black people is not a black man problem it is a black man and woman problem.

Two, not all black men are blatant misogynist, and not all black women take offense to be called a ho, for a varied of reasons.

This means that from the ground up, we have to discuss this as a community and not black men v. black women.

Three, white privlege is not white people. In other words, it is not individuals, but whites as a power bloc as expressed through politics, economics, and cultural. And the privlege component is demonstrative on how in the majority of the cases, white individuals have more power than black individuals.

Why?

Because these white individuals have this support behind them that a black person, generally, doesn't have.

So what does this mean in the case of Imus?

It means he lost his job, but aint shit changed!
