I do think Imus was out of line--beyond the feminist and racist implications, women's basketball has had a heartbreakingly uphill climb to reach any kind of prominence in the American sports world, something which can be and arguably has been totally taken for granted by the many multimillion-dollar males of the sport (and I still think it was completely irresponsible of Chicago not to begin a WNBA team until last year, in light of all of the success of the Chicago Bulls, but that's another argument for another day, as are the unfair fractions of salaries that the WNBA players get in comparison to the NBA players)--and his thoughtless comment cannot be justified on any level, no matter how many straw men rap artists he and his defenders want to try to bring into the conversation.
