ER, thank you! If there was an alternate choice besides Russell Simmons, it would be Spike Lee.

Defamation of "character". Does not apply to their nappy hair. See, even you. Racial. My uncle use to call us "nap-nap-nappyheads" what was he being seeing how he is Black. I'm not making any excuses for Imus, because this obviously goes to the core of who he is. So, the question is was he being disrespectful or racist?

Do you think because it was a high-profile case and not only did a person lose his life as a result of the "alleged" fake accusation decided by the court but that families were destroyed in the process could be the MAIN reason why New York is upholding this suit against Brawley?

I agree that it is his right to Freedom of Speech/Expression, up until he's comparing homosexuality to beastality. The Gay community has to realize that people DO have Freedom of Speech in this country and that people DO have the right to disagree with or about homosexuality, the same way they have the right be homosexual and to agree with homosexuality. What people DO NOT have the right to do in this country is Discriminate against, brutalize, defame and murder people because they are Gay.
