IMUS STEPS IN IT AGAIN. Don Imus has taken time out from his busy schedule of making fun of black people (click here and here) in order to make fun of Jews. Belief.net carries this UPI story about Imus making a reference to "thieving Jews," and then apologizing by saying the phrase was "redundant." Nice!
When the Anti-Defamation League complained, Imus reportedly replied, "Leave me alone, Jesus, God. Go after people who are actually doing something wrong."
Hey, I-man - you actually did something wrong.
I used to listen to Imus quite a bit, and no, I don't think he's racist or anti-Semitic. But there's no question he plays with race, ethnicity, and religion in ways that slide right up to the line, and that often cross over it. He's got to cut it out.
