The Imus in the morning segment in which the radio shock jock was fired for calling members of the Rutgers Basket Ball Team, “Nappy Headed Hoes.”, highlighted a bigger problem. Imus’s comment may have brought outrage from many in the black community, but it did not stop comedian DL Hughly from adding his two cents to the racist attack. The comedian admitted that he agreed with Imus’s insult during an interview, and while he may only have been joking, his sentiment echoed the sentiments of many others, both black and white. In recent news, Tameka Foster wife to Usher and mother of his child had been continuously bombarded with a litany of insults. Her crime seems to be, not so much that she is a clingy wife (a common sterotype for many women) but that she is -as a white commenter put it-" Ushers ugly pit bull." The insults against black women have roots that run deep into the American/World past. Join us as we discuss the negative images and stereotypes that have plagued women for generations now.
