defending imus by defaming king
This week, at the end of a column about Hillary Clinton accepting $800,000 from a fundraiser hosted by rapper Timbaland, who uses the word "ho" once or twice in his lyrics ... per line, King shares some of the emails he received after his Imus piece.
You can read King's entire column here, but copied below is a sample of the sort of crap he copped from Imus supporters.
King said he loves his job. When he gets emails like that, you suspect he's being a bit ironic.
"These two [yours truly, and another African American Post columnist] are the dumbest of the current black race-mongers at the Washington Post." -- J.S.
On (King's) reference to attending Francis Junior High School: "You never did matriculate, did you?" -- B.W.
Regarding (King's) membership in the National Association of Black Journalists: "Why don't you work for a paper owned and run by Blacks?" -- Angry White Chick.
"Clearly, seeking out and writing about (White) discrimination and stoking up racism is your job. Discrimination-hunting pays for your nice house, your late model cars . . . In fact, it's the only reason you have a job. Nobody would read your articles if you wrote about anything else." -- J.K.
"I am fed up with Imus but I am even more fed up with black people . . . Yes, all African Americans. As a whole. [Imus] was a piddling story to be making such hoopla over." -- R.S.
"Imus was the fall guy for a culture of rap and hate radio that, unfortunately, will never change." -- P.M.
"Get a life. Or maybe instead try dealing with where Imus learned to talk that way. Hip Hop and Rap, ohh but you wouldn't get the play you get by jumping on the bandwagon to silence someone who is white and rich." -- D.B.
"IMUS MADE A MISTAKE! BUT HE HAS DONE MORE GOOD IN THE LAST 10 YEAR THAN YOU WILL IN YOUR ENTIRE LIFE." -- Bob.
