Don Imus vs. Rap Music Debate Continued: (tags)
Randi Rhodes of Air America is still wrong when she claims that “the” issue (insisting there is only one issue) is no more than white people blaming rap music for words like “ho” when used in the derogatory sense. Don Imus question: “What about rap music?” is a legitimate question—even if “pseudo-liberals” (real liberals consider fairly all relevant points of view before getting judgmental) are quick to dismiss it. In fact dogmatic certitude that there is “one” significant way (my way or the highway) to interpret the debate is itself a red flag.
On the Imus Racist and Sexist Remarks and the People’s Outrage (tags)
The Alliance for Just and Lasting Peace in the Philippines (AJLPP) and the Coalition in Defense of Immigrant Rights (CDIR) stands against systemic racism and sexism in all its forms. The racist and sexist remarks by Imus about the Rutgers women’s basketball team is not only racist in form but a like the tip of spear, in essence- the racist and sexist slur, an offensive against people of color and immigrants. Progressive and well meaning people’s organizations especially woman’s organizations must be vigilant and fight all forms and racist attacks especially against people of color and immigrants in the United States. We should not let such racist and sexist remarks against any group, people of color and anyone pass and be unnoticed and always fight for the integrity and humanity of all people
Breakdwon FM M-1 of dead prez vs Don Imus - and Democracy now report and transcript (tags)
M-1: I'm here to represent for African people. I'm here to represent for hip-hop. I don't have a lot to say, but what I have to say is important. First of all, I would like to pay respect to the father of this culture that I'm a part of, sitting right beside me, Afrika Bambaataa. That's important. That's important, because I think there's a few things that we do know, and what we do know is that the media in this country is an organ of the state and the ruling class state that controls what we're hearing and what we're seeing. I'm clear on that. So it helps me understand our position. It helps me understand that this propaganda is part of a war that also exists against the black and brown community. It's not just a war for oil, it's a war for the minds of our people.

HOW THE MEDIA USES BLACKS TO CHASTISE BLACKS: Regarding Cynthia McKinney – by ISHMAEL REED (tags)
African-Americans have a number of individuals who are willing to serve as mind doubles. Some are supported by right wing think tanks... Michelle McQueen Martin, who was assigned to beat up on Ms. Mckinney by the producers of" Nightline," spent half the interview on Ms. McKinney's hair even though Ms. McKinney has been outspoken on a number of serious issues. Can you imagine Ms. Martin conducting an interview with Trent Lott, the last person on the planet to use Wild Root Cream Oil, or Joe Biden, and spending half the time on his hair? If "Nightline's" Martin had subjected a white male congressman to this kind of hostile sarcastic interview, sarcastic not only in words but in body language, to which she subjected Cynthia McKinney, Martin would have gotten the same treatment from her bosses that Connie Chung received when she interviewed Newt Gingrich's mom, who denounced Hillary Clinton as "a bitch". ...assigned to a Saturday morning show on MSNBC. Network oblivion.

Corporate directors are nearly always called on to make important and sometimes difficult decisions regarding the personnel and policy of the business that they are directing.
