Fellow blogger Lily alerted me to this new story on shock jock Don Imus. Apparently, when discussing a Dallas Cowboy who was recently arrested, Imus had the following dialogue:
Warner Wolf: "He's been arrested six times since being drafted by Tennessee in 2005,"
Imus: "What color is he?"
Wolf: "He's African-American,"
Imus: "Well, there you go. Now we know."
Imus said he was defending African Americans because they get arrested in disproportionate numbers. Now without seeing the transcript I can't say, but given his past history, his excuse is suspect...
