Al Sharpton’s Blog

It's quite obvious that Pacman is yellow

By Al Sharpton

Bio & Blog

Well if you needed any proof of the Good Lord's graces, here it is. On Friday I asked Him to provide an outrage because it had been a slow summer, and not 3 days later He delivered. And what dramatics! Our old buddy Imus. Sometimes I think I'm one of God's favorite children. (Maybe not the smooth-talking funny son, but the oldest one who takes out the garbage without being asked and keeps the other rugrats in line.)

On Monday when talking about football player Adam "Pacman" Jones run ins with the law, Imus asked "what color is he?" I think the answer was obvious:

Yellow.

And after he got the answer, Imus said, "There you go. Now you know." So Imus is anti-Asian. Given his previous anti-Black statements that shouldn't be a surprise. What is a little harder to figure out is what races the ghosts who chase Pacman represent:

It's dangerous to make assumptions about hate, but I think it's a safe bet to say the ghosts represent the following races and that Imus despises them as well:

  • Red - Native Americans
  • Blue - Eskimos
  • Pink - Gay Japenese people
  • Orange - Buddhist Monks on fire

Buddhist monks, Imus? I can understand the others maybe, but monks? Have you gone mad sir? They have enough problems burning themselves because China won't let them play in the Olympics.

Today on Imus' show, he tried to clarify his comments. He said, "I mean, there's no reason to arrest this kid six times. Maybe he did something once, but everyone does something once."

I'm not sure if Imus knows how the legal system works. If you commit a crime once, it doesn't excuse you from all other crimes for the rest of your life. That would be like if I made a comment about how Jews have big noses and I expected the time I apologized for calling Jews jewel merchants to cover it.

Do you think Pacman or any of these ghosts would be good wide receivers? I need a wide receiver.
