I-Man -- I Was Just Being "Sarcastic"

6/24/2008 9:37 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Don Imus just pulled out the S-card -- sarcasm -- to defend himself against charges that he's a straight-up racist.

On his radio show this morning, he said he was just trying to "make a sarcastic point" when he asked yesterday, about arrest-happy NFL player Pacman Jones, "What color is he?" As Imus tried to explain, "What people should be outraged about is that they arrest blacks for no reason. I mean, there's no reason to arrest this kid six times."

As the I-man himself put it: There you go. Now we know.

WOW, thank you BrandDeez......GREAT COMMENT.

And another thing:
People say, oh black people are currupt,criminal, and God knows what else. I have one simpel answer, what was their reference and example? Yes, white people who colonized, started slavery, decided that blacks have no rights etc etc. So if people ofcolor do the same things (on a much smaller scale) than whites did years ago, they are inferior? Please, give me a break. I can go on,but its no use. People always need someone to point there fingers atand say that's the bad guy, and minorities will always be the easy target. Don't forget when you point your fingers, four of them are pointed at YOURSELF.

Oh btw, dumbass dahoss, in the motherland is where al humanity started, so in a way you are also from "the motherland".

You know how you fix this problem? Cut the pay for "these" (you know who I am talking about) sport stars by 3/4 and then they would stay out of trouble. These people would not have the money to spend on the strippers, drugs, booze and they would not be in trouble all the time. Look at the old days, when the sport stars didn't make any money. you never heard of any issues back in the day.

This is what everyone should be talking about, here's a transcript of the crap Michael Regan said on his radio show..

“Excuse me folks, I’m going to say this. We ought to find the people who are doing this, take them out and shoot them. Really. You take them out, they are traitors to this country, and shoot them. You have a problem with that? Deal with it. You shoot them. You call them traitors, that’s what they are, and you shoot them dead. I’ll pay for the bullets.”

I guess it's ok to solicit for the murder of Mark Dice on a national radio show. Most TMZ readers probablly never heard about this, for the Main stream media did not report on it. Well it happened on Mike Regan's show The Regan Exchange June 10, 2008. Regan is Ronald Regan's son, and looks like he's above the law. He still has his job! He should be fired, tried and sent off to jail like the rest of us!

Imus called Pacman "A lovely kid", he has no idea who Pacman is or his history. Pacman was arrested because he is a thug and in one incident a man was left paralyzed from a fired bullet that Pacman's associate fired because of Pacman's actions. It really doesn't matter if Imus is a racist or not--he is out of touch and ignorent, and shouldn't be on the radio.

You're carrying on about racism but you have made the most racist comments on here. And it's funny how you want to blame everything on whites but there is alot of black politicians in our government now and they voted to go right along with Bush. Do you really believe Bush alone made the decision to go to war? How did your precious Obama vote? He went right along with it too!
And talk about fear - Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson and the NAACP make their money off black fools who go right along with their racist tirades, because they use fear tactics.

P.S. Using caps for everything doesn't get your message out there louder, it just makes you look like a jacka$$.
