The Huffington Post’s Stacey Parker Aab thinks Imus should be out of a job…
It is not OK to sit like a coward in one’s studio and speak such poison into the airwaves. I hope, for a moment, Imus might take a moment to sit with the fact that he is in the wrong here, and then take another moment to put himself in these womens’ impressively-hard-to-fill shoes.
So, I’m afraid to say that I still don’t have an explanation for my mom as to why Imus still has a job. Other than the one we already know: in America, no one gets fired for hurting and disparaging black women. Ever.
Thank you, Gregory Lee and the National Association of Black Journalists and all others who have spoken out against Mr. Imus, and have demanded his dismissal. An apology was a start. But it can’t be the end.
