    Why do you want such information? After you got snipped, your ways don't do justice anymore?

    That was below the belt.

    I don't agree with your definition - why does power have anything to do with it?

    Because if you're not in a position of power, you can't hurt me. For example, if I'm your boss at work, and you make a racially derogatory comment about me to a co-worker at lunch, it's unlikely to have an effect on me. On the other hand, if I make a racially derogatory comment to a co-worker about you, it carries a lot more weight because I'm the boss.

    I guess you're explicitly stating that minorities in the US cannot be racist?

    Here again, you apparently want to eliminate context and history, and treat racism as simply x calling y a name. No matter who x is. No matter who y is. No matter their respective positions. No matter their history. No matter the intent of the statement.

    Wow, we completely disagree on this one. We're not going to convince each other, so I'll just move on.

    Having been in broadcasting for a long time and being a long-time Imus listener, I think it's time for the bastard to retire.

    He's been losing it for years, is often unintelligible and his last comment was just the breaking point in my estimate.

    Time to hang them up, Don. He's not been good for the last 6-7 years. I'm sick of hearing about his effing Ranch.

    Imus is dead meat. MSNBC pulled the plug, his sponsors are running for cover. His resignation / axe is imminent.

    Look for the axe to fall on Imus today. The pressure is on CBS. The Pres has deligated the decision to No.2 with the instructions to "Do what is right". I suspect they are strategizing a way to avoid the axe, but just haven't found an exit route that preserves the IMan. MSNBC pulled the plug, we are talking hours before CBS ends the discussion and sends Imus to the Cosell Home for the Disparaged.

    Now, starts the debate of who will pick up the IMan and his loyal following - Could it be Serius radio ? While he and Stern aren't exactly bosom buddies, Stern has too much at stake for Serius to fail. He'll enlist any supporting cast he can find that adds subscribers.
