You're Fired!

Zine Magubane, an associate professor of sociology and African diaspora studies at Boston College, provides some historical context for why referring to African-American women as "nappy-headed" is offensive. Fortunately, as per my request last week, CBS Radio has canned Imus a day after MSNBC did the same thing.

An interesting, informative and much needed article.

Any chance that it would have received the exposure it now receives had this opportunity for dialogue, which was ironically created by the incident in question, not occurred?
