Getting Don Imus Off the Air for his racism

Here is a letter you can send to W-ABC, the company that puts "Imus in the Morning" on the air. At this link, you can get the contact information for the producers of the show.

To Mr. Bernard McGuirk, Executive Producer of “Imus in the Morning”, and to all members of the W-ABC staff,

Racially motivated comments and insults by Don Imus are no longer acceptable. Fair-minded Americans everywhere are now engaged in a nation-wide effort to ensure that W-ABC and all of its corporate sponsors are held accountable for the fact that you are supporting racism on the airwaves.

Don Imus has made the implication that black men are more likely to be criminals than other members of our society. His comments about Adam “Pacman” Jones are not only insulting to hard working, honest black men across the country, but to good Americans everywhere. Our progress toward racial equality is regularly hampered by the social terrorism of Don Imus, as well as Sean Hannity and Rush Limbaugh, other hosts with your network.

We were disappointed with the fact that you chose to put Don Imus on the air the first time, but we will be even more disappointed if you continue to support him. Don Imus has shown very little remorse for his actions, and feels that African Americans are an easy and available target for his racist attacks.

We won’t tolerate this anymore, and we are not going away. We ask that you discipline Mr. Imus for his actions and strongly recommend that you consider taking him off the air. We are mobilized behind this issue and will strive to find direct and creative ways to get the attention of your corporate sponsors.

We don't need to stoop to the level of a bigot, misogynist loser like Imus. This will only bring more hatred to us.

I think if we focus on the station we will have more success. But I understand your point. This s--- is out of hand. This racist shows no fear of any repercussion for his insults.

I think you have way, way too much time on your hands. Maybe you should get a hobby instead of attacking radio personality entertainers; who, incidentally, probably accomplish more good for the Black community in a day, than you will do in a lifetime. Unfortunately, I'll have to sign "Anonymos". I don't want you coming after me because I say something you don't like. lol and away, amigo, lol & away.
