5618: He’s Baaaack. Don Imus Mouths Off Again.

Shock jock Don Imus sparked new controversy with another asinine remark, this time aimed at a male Black athlete.

While discussing NFL player Adam “Pacman” Jones, Imus and partner Warner Wolf presented the following exchange:

Wolf: “Defensive back Adam ‘Pacman’ Jones, recently signed by the Cowboys. Here’s a guy suspended all of 2007 following a shooting in a Vegas night club.”

Imus: “Well, stuff happens. You’re in a night club, for God’s sake. What do you think’s gonna happen in a night club? People are drinking and doing drugs, there are women there, and people have guns. So, there, go ahead.”

Wolf: “He’s also been arrested six times since being drafted by Tennessee in 2005.”

Imus: “What color is he?”

Wolf: “He’s African-American.”

Imus: “Well, there you go. Now we know.”

For anyone who questioned whether or not Imus is a racist, well, there you go. Now we know.

imus'll blame jay-z or some rap song for this.

or maybe the influence of chris rock/dave chappelle...

or maybe BET's to blame.

then again, Al Sharpton's alsways good for a distraction.
