Default Double Standard?

(Quoted from the video description)
In the wake of Don Imus getting suspended heres a video of a guy who went on CSpan a while back and announces he wants to kill all white people. Where was Al Sharpton after this? Did this guy get picketed and fired? Shouldnt he be held to Sharptons same standards?"

http://www.break.com/index/double_standard.html

Thoughts?

Imus............ Never cared for his show so I did not watch it.

Fired over what he has done for years.

he isn't radio/tv personality, I'm sure if he was famous he would have been awarded by the African American personality but he just runs a book store.

I don't see the difference if he's homeless. He talked about wiping out an entire race on TV. Where's the people that stand up against racism? Where's Al Sharpton to tell him to respect his own race by not saying things like that?

So the lesson learned is that it's not okay to make racist remarks if you're famous, but if you're not famous then it's okay?

Regarding Don Imus, I've never listened to him. His problems are his own and I don't really care what happens to him. However, the end result of the entire fiasco has already changed things for the rest of the world.

If you feel it is a double standard, then do something about it. Just like Jesse and Al do for their people.

Only the majority can be racist. Minorities being racist is ok, and it pisses me off.

the english took this country away from the indians, and tried to organize it. when taxes got too high, the free-will settlers took over, and so-on and so-on. this country has always been at war with itself, the thing to be careful of is that the white people are becoming the minority very quickly. basing certain things on color is stupidity, weather comical or not. ethnicity does have certain clicks or rules, brought forth by upbringing. no one can deny that.

Same situation as Michael Richards, I don't condone what they said but every day in America some rap artist treats people the same way whether he or they are black, white, asian or whatever. The only black leader to denounce them is Bill Cosby, then he is made fun of for trying to improve the black's plight.

I agree that for the most part Black people are not held to the same standards. I mean come on what would happen if white people had WET (White Entertainment Channel) Blacks have BET and nobody complain's and what about Black History Month? Do whites have White History Month? I'm not against any race and for all that goes I have dated a black girl and was engaged to a Phillipino woman. I'm not saying what this guy said is acceptable but it is kind of funny that as soon as a white person says something that may be offensive every group in the world is all over them for it. Oh and I'm not complaining about Martin Luther King day because I get it off from work as a paid holiday but why don't we have any White people's birthday off?

My favorite part of the story was that Snoop decided to speak up against Imus......on the way to court for firearms and drug charges. Good spokesman

Like Snoop has never called wimmenz anything worse in one of his (c)raps (I won't call them songs). Bill O'Reilly just had a round with Snoop(y).
