Any person who will state that they don't believe Rush is a racist...well, I think it's pointless to continue this conversation. I appreciate the exercise in someone voicing an opinion. But, Rush...C'Mon Man!!! If Rush is not a racist than the word doesn't exist. Thanks for the conversation though. Take care!!!

Now on this point however I disagree...his reference as I recall was at it relates to "black" quarterbacks. Don't recall what he said but I do remember i was offended...and Tom Jackson was extremely offended and upset. Again, I did not agree with the comments RP made, but I don't believe he should have been fired is all...If Rush didn't have a history of those types of racially dividing comments, I would have said the same for him...

That's a valid argument...so, although I don't think he should be fired, the standards set should be fair across the board...

 The "exampe" was not whether Rush was fired. It was the fact that his statements were far more offensive and he should have been fired...espec considering his history of making those types of statements...as far as him firing himself, if 3 million folks didn't tune in, he wouldn't have too...

 I don't think these types of comments (yours) are helpful. I agree on the part about the black athlete...I always thought that was ridiculous...too many beautiful black women in the world. But, "Cracker"...C'Mon Man!!! Those words are dangerous and not fair to the millions of white americans who voted for the Prez!!! Just be careful with your words is all...not knocking you...just conversating is all!!!

 White reporters have made statements like this...for over 60 years of TV...RP was wrong. He should never have said that. I am black and it made me very uncomfortable. I believe those types of statement are never good, for any race on any level. I don't think it was for shock value. It was him really believing that, but unfortunately stating it on national TV...

 A white person has been making statement on and off camera like this for over 50 years of televison. And, much more offensive words then what Rob Parker said...See Rush Limbaug!!!
