|News Update: MSNBC fires Imus Comment Now|
Is there any difference between an aggressive hip-hop MC and a blabbermouth radio host dissing women in public? Is race at the center of that difference? Don Imus’s foul slur against the athletes of the Rutgers hoop squad shouldn’t be compared to the rather common usage of the terms “bitches” and “ho’s” in modern hip-hop says Snoop Dogg. The MC fired off a couple rounds at the shock jock while chatting with MTV news.
The viciousness is out there. And pundits have started to voice their opinions. It’s time for you to weigh in. Is Snoop making sense? Does one side have a right to barrage black women with such names in the name of art?
