Do you think it`s a double standard to attack someone like Don Imus or Michael Richards, but not care when Ann Coulter says the same things?

Yeah, of course. But we have double standards for quite a few things, and trying to fix it all would just get quite a few people pissed.

Not really.

With Ann Coulter, it's pretty well-established that she's crazy. She's made a career out of being offensive; it's what we've come to expect.

When seemingly normal people say offensive things, though, it's more shocking.

What about Al Sharpton himself??? He is the biggest racist double standard piece of SH*T that there is....and he has the balls to ask anyone to be fired!!!!! F*CK HIM!!!!

No, I think everyone is pretty wakeful regarding racist comments.

Rosie O'Donell is the biggest pinko bleeding heart out there and has offended every single human being alive. Everyone's caught on.

And the same goes for the uber conservative televangelists. What comes around goes around.

Umm when can I get $40 million? I'll call my own mama a nappy-headed ho for that!

$40 million in reparations for Imus

I hate Ann Coulter.

Yes, that would be a double standard. However the situation with Ann Coulter is different. She is expected to say offensive things.

Besides. She recieved a lot of criticism for her statements, too.

It's a given that everything that comes out of Coulter's mouth will be offensive. It's not shocking anymore. Now it's just verbal diarrhea.

This whole country is based on double standards if a WHITE MALE says something racist, don't you people know this already?! Der.

Nobody should say the n word. Ever.

It's not like it is even shocking anymore. When all of the old white KKK members die off I think that it will lose its meaning, just like Cracker has.

DON IMUS SHOULD NOT HAVE BEEN FIRED
there is a thing called freedom of speech in this country, and firing somebody for what they SAID is limiting freedom of speech

Have you seen some of the speech on YT?
Talk about the pot calling the kettle black !
Take out the log from your eye then Don,Michael and Ann will remove the speck from theirs.

It's not a double standard for all the reasons mentioned. Neither is th treatment of the N-word versus "Cracker" for (what I figured were) obvious reasons.

Don Imus needs to keep his stupid mouth shut

Speaking Of Walking Corpses...

I would say that women get away with being offensive more than men. For example white women feel free to talk about gross "Black guys" hitting on them. But if a white guy were to complain about gross "Black girls" hitting on them, he'd be racist. Of course, I like black girls so this doesn't apply to me!

What Imus said wasn't racist. It was totally blown out of proportion by liberals.

The double standards lie in the race of the person speaking. Whites are constantly under the microscope. While other races seem to have a free ride no matter what they say.
