I don't listen to his show or care that much about him. It seems really mean spirited and hateful what he said. I feel bad for the girls having to hear it, and having to deal with the huge media backlash that isn't letting it go. If they fire him or not makes no difference to me. I don't listen to shock jock radio.

I never have any sympathy for shock jocks. They reap what they sow.

I don't like what Imus said, but I'm equally upset that Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson are getting fake mad just to jump on the publicity bandwagon.

Imus was trying to be young and hip, throwing those phrases around. The dude belongs in a trailer in Florida.

It was mentioned on the NIU board that he paraphrasing from Spike Lee's "School Daze". Never saw the movie so I can't say for sure. I think it DOES make a difference between losing his job(and sponsors) and a two week suspension if that is true.

Maybe Jackson and Sharpton could focus their energies on the current origin of those phrases in pop culture. But that wouldn't get them the kind of attention they seek.

Not defending Imus - what he said was deplorable. I don't listen to him, anyway and I don't really care what happens with him but if he were to be fired, he'd probably pull a Stern and sign with Serius sat radio for much bigger bucks.

There are a LOT of kids with cancer that really care what happens to him.

I see Sharpton, a man with some racist skeletons in his past, is now taking Obama to task for not going nuts about Imus' comments the day after it happened. I liked Obama's measured response without resorting to hysterics. Imus' remark is not something we need to get the high-reaches of government involved with.

Like the rest of you, I found Imus' comments were offensive and uncalled for. But I'm surprised (well, maybe not...) how much heavy media spotlight this has gotten. His "nappy" comment, as crude as it is, doesn't rank up there with Michael Richards and Mel Gibson's ill-conceived rants in terms of malice.

I've never listened to Imus (Stern's far better in the shock jock realm), but he comes across as someone who just revels in making crude remarks about people's physical characteristics, kind of like a Simon Cowell on steroids. I'm only guessing here, but I think he's more of just a shallow jerk than a flat-out racist.

I teach a pubic high school in Florida, and minority students continually refer to each other in those terms and worse. Spike Lee glorifies it. BET lives off of it, and it's unacceptable. Imus should know better than sink into that cesspool.

Best and most spot on commentary I've read on the issue. Too bad that not enough people that matter will see it or heed the message.

Corporations push what sells and we know what young people are buying.

Yes he ripped the NBA and his old cronies at ESPN. Whitlock played football at Ball State as well.

Imus got out of his contract with WFAN and MSNBC so now he can switch to satillite radio.
