Rutgers Team, Coach Lash Out at Imus

For all those not in the know here's how it breaks down.
Rutgers = college in New Jersey, in this case the "team" is the womans basketball team which played, and lost, in the NCAA finals this year.
Imus = some idiot on the radio

Rutgers women's basketball coach on Tuesday called the comments radio host Don Imus made about her team "racist and sexist remarks that are deplorable, despicable and unconscionable."

Those are some big words for a woman...ah shit...I'm being sued.

"These young ladies before you are valedictorians, future doctors, musical prodigies," coach C. Vivian Stringer told a nationally publicized news conference a day after the uproar over Imus' comments led to a two-week suspension of his show.

"Future waitresses, stewardesses, rap video back-up dancers..."

Team member Essence Carson said she and the other players were angry and disgusted but would meet with Imus. They stopped short of saying whether they thought he should be fired for calling the team "nappy- headed hos."

I've been called worse. Kind of a double standard no? Howard Stern has said the word nigger more than Ice-T. Oh sorry:
Ice-T = former "gangsta" rapper turned actor who plays a cop on a TV show. He's also black.

"We are students first," Carson said. "We did not do anything to deserve his controversy."

Well you did lose the game, just saying.

But she said, "We all agreed the meeting with Mr. Imus will help."

Should make for some good ol' fashioned race bickering. I'll skip it.
