"Nappy headed hoes"
Why is this particularly offensive? Is "nappy headed" a sensitive topic among black people? If so, why? Is it just a hair thing?
I do see the problem with calling college women "hoes," though. But I doubt the good reverand would be involved if that was the only comment.
Honestly, is there anybody out there who can enlighten me on the nappy hair problem. Many black people do indead have nappy hair.
It's not. The comment just happened to be directed towards a group of people who are predominantly black and who were still in the national consciousness following a trip to the Final Four. It's a perfect opportunity for Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton to seek out the media in an effort to promote themselves. I'm not sure what these guys actually do for black people because unless the event is going to draw cameras and reporters they are nowhere to be found. The racism that they should be out fighting is subtle and indirect. Their actions just prove that they are two of the most self-serving, ridiculous characters in this country. No better than Imus.
