I agree with you 150% Nels. And if you guys noticed that is what Don Imus said originally. He was actually making a comparison between the dark skinned Black women of Rutgers and the "supposed" light skinned Black women of Tennessee using the Spike Lee plot in his movie "School Daze".

The "Wannabee" and the "Jiggaboos".

What Don Imus did confirmed every Black persons worse suspicion. That lighter skinned Black ppl are more "acceptable" to society and thus therefore escape the "brunt" of societies Racism.
