supporters of imus have been saying that his language didn't come from himself but from the black community - basically, this is the norm within the black community.
i beg to differ. (i mean, no one black i know has used that kind of language.) but whatever. conversations about misogyny are happening in our community - and they're a lot more honest than the ones mainstream society keeps managing to avoid.
so instead of blindly appropriating the language of black sexism like irresponsible children, here's everyone's chance to actually share in our conversation:
