I really don't want to write about Don Imus anymore. I just have to post that as of tonight, Wednesday April 11, MSNBC has announced that they will no longer be airing his show. Good. He'll still be on the radio though. Bad.
Check out this article from Newsweek editor Marcus Marby on what the whole Imus mess really means for American media. The most distressing point he makes is that this whole episode is putting us back in O.J. Simpson America where Whites and Blacks are pitted against each other, seeing the world in polar opposites.
Sigh. Sigh. Sigh.
Here at the Meltingpot, rather than be discouraged, we will continue to find the stories where Black and White are sticking together like peanut butter and jelly to create a harmonius and gooey sandwich of life.
