I have been deliberately silent about Don Imus’ free fall from neocon graces. My silence has prompted hate mail from those who erroneously assumed that my silent was consent for a fellow talk radio personality. It was never consent. Correction: It was protest.
I protested the selective hypocrisy of those black men who admirably and righteously attacked Imus for his rabidly racist and sexist slurs against sister athletes at Rutgers. Now, I end that protest and break that silence herein. I do so only because of the deafening volume of the potential fallout of Imus’ welcome and belated firing. I do so because I am unable to be silent anymore.
