Imus has a long history of saying degrading things about blacks and women in general. Saying the Tennessee girls are cute doesn't make up for that.
I know he has a history of it, but Chris Rock has a history of calling whites, crackers and honkeys. And he never says good things about white people. Imagine Rock doing stand up like Michael Richards and he calls someone cracker? If that guy stood up and made a big deal of it he'd be laughed out of the auditorium. Double-standards
The n word and cracker aren't even close to comparable. That's just the way it is.
