    Such insults should never be made or condoned, in any community as you point out. When these words are accepted into the common tongue, it encourages classification and prejudice. We can decide not to deal with someone we don't like - but we should still treat them with respect as a human being.

    Said like a gentleman, which you are. I never listened to Imus but one can't stop listening to Sharpton or Jesse Jackson as both have taken on the role of judge and jury and their holier than thou position as so-called "leaders" of the black community. Bot a scant look at both these "leaders" will hardly convince that they are not exactly up there on the moral compass. Sharpton never admitted to th hoax of Twanna Brawley which was a complete shame and a joke. Jessee Jackson, "Mr. Haime Town" goes on the "minister Clinton on having lost the way," until it was found out that he fathered a child outside of his marriage." Both these men love the spotlight and stir the pot rather than ease "fix." Look who is calling the kettle black.

    It is an issue of language: words are really powerful. And leadership is about bringing attention to the issue in public discourse so that we, together, can shape the conversation for a positive outcome that can benefit people as a whole.

    I too have been thinking about how traditional media and new media mesh -- ultimately, we should all hold ourselves accountable for how we talk and the greater the platform, the greater the accountability.

    David,

    Well said and as usual, right on the money. The issue has little to do with Imus. He was just the wrong guy in the wrong place. Not because he wasn't wrong. But because he is hardly the only one wrong.

    Interesting times ahead, my friend!

    Thank you all for your comments.

    I agree on this escapade presenting the "chance" to dialogue on race and gender. Elevating it is pretty hopeful - I say its pretty much forgotten in 60-90 days. I could be wrong. I'm torn on Black leaders responsibility though, David - I feel its leaders responsibility - period. And sadly most of today's leaders are concerned about positioning. Racism and gender inequity are so deeply entrenched in our US.
