We are outraged about the comments made on the Don Imus Radio Show. Here are the comments:
From the April 4 edition of MSNBC\'s Imus in the Morning:
IMUS: That\'s some rough girls from Rutgers. Man, they got tattoos and -
McGUIRK: Some hard-core hos.
IMUS: That\'s some nappy-headed hos there. I\'m gonna tell you that now, man, that\'s some - woo. And the girls from Tennessee, they all look cute, you know, so, like - kinda like - I don\'t know.
McGUIRK: A Spike Lee thing.
ROSENBERG: It was a tough watch. The more I look at Rutgers, they look exactly like the Toronto Raptors.
If these insensitive and obviously racial comments were made against a mens team Mr. Imus would be looking for a job right now. To say such demeaning things about a team that should be praised for the accomplishments they have made this season is not acceptable.
We The Detroit Northwestern Lady Colts Basketball Team and staff are asking that you please sign our online petition, that will be forwarded to the producers of this show and that you would please refrain from watching and listening to The Don Imus show, MSNBC and boycott any advertisers associated with these two entities.
