Don Imus and Rutgers

Last week, radio shock-jock Don Imus tried to be funny by calling the national runner-up Rutgers women's basketball team a bunch of "nappy-haired ho's." He got fired, first by MSNBC then by CBS radio, and has done a constant stream of mea culpas. to help our national healing, the Today Show has brought out Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, Whoopi Goldberg, Spike Lee, Tavis Smiley, and Cornel West to give their two cents.

I haven't been sure what to think about this, but African American sportwriter Jason Whitlock of the Kansas City Star (and formerly of ESPN) has some great words to share. I encourage you to read his column: http://www.kansascity.com/182/story/66339.html
