    After watching the news tonight, I figured it would only be a matter of time.

    I call BS.. you hear anyone call a white person a Redneck and they just laugh and go on but you say one comment towards any other person of another race and all hell breaks loose. I'm tired of reading about it.

    But there's no sting in redneck. I come from a small town in Maine, and I don't give a damn if someone calls me a redneck. I'd probably just laugh at them. Somehow there just aren't any words derogatory to white people that really feel offensive. they're more funny than anything else. honky? whitey? cracker? redneck? Just not the same as the n word or any other words minorities are called. I'm not sure why, but it's true and I don't see a point in denying it.

    For him to call a group of black women "nappy headed hos" is pretty bad, and I think he should be suspended for a couple months, not a couple weeks.
    There is security in fearlessness.

    Except for Sharpton getting on the news, I don't think it would have gone down any different if roles were reversed for anyone.

    It's not like he was propped up at a bar with a few good friends and was overheard. The way the show works is........he's talking to an potential audience of millions.

    Taken into accout what he said, joke or no joke, he's toast.

    So if one of them was your daughter, you would't mind him calling her a w h o r e on national TV? Really?

    I can't understand how Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson somehow became the spokesmen for the entire African American community of the U.S. It seems like any apologies (if any are to be made) are directed toward them first.

    I should have written some more, I was refuring to the nappy hair comment he made rather than the other, because of what all I see on t.v. is the "racist" comment.

    They have made careers from focusing the indigination and outrage of the African American community, occasionally in a productive manner.
