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.

who fuggin cares    

are you people out of your friggin skulls? the man was making a point about racial profiling.

i don't agree with everything don imus says, but you've got too much free time on your hands and you take things way to seriously if you ACTUALLY believe he meant anything inappropriate.

energy spent getting mad at don imus is energy that could be spent complaining about the insistence of police departments around this country to commit racial profiling of suspects -- something far more inappropriate and wrong.

Don Imus is a racist, non-racist people don't talk about other races the way Don Imus does.

From the posts, I gather Don Imus isn't the only one.

Racism didn't start in America, it extends worldwide, and across all races, it isn't just a white american's issue.

Tolerance is key, stop hating, it's not that hard.

hehe, this is getting funnier by the minute.

KD said "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." Just like every other fool in america who follows the current government. Not to mention the whites who follow the KKK.

People please.....lets cut the BS ok. We are 1 race, not 100. Weather you are colored or white, we al come from the same place and also go to the same place when we die. We cannot keep fighting about race, in a couple or generations everyone will be mixed. Then what? The colored with the white mother or father is the target?

Stop the hate...by the end of the day, only a handful of people prosper from your ignorance and it shure ain't YOU!!! So why bother being a racist, don't forget what you cause one to experience you will experience too one day.

One love.

Honestly, that's my first thought, however, we don't need a hate-monger on the radio. I guess with our freedom of speech laws, we can say whatever we want, but I feel we need limits on the racist radio hosts. If people don't like what he says, turn the radio off, no sponsors, no cash flow, no Imus. A letter to his boss might help too.

#91 That is what history is about. You don't see or hear the Indians crying, pulling the race card, etc. They are still worst off than any other race. If anything the government should take care of them above all! Thank God the Blacks won their rights!!! Everyone should have equal rights, even white people. I shouldn't pay the price and feel the effects of reverse discrimination because I am white. I am first generation American as half of American’s are. Our families didn’t partake in American History!! When I went for a job I was told to up my entry score in order to get the job. My black counter part had 10 points added to their score. Living in a black neighborhood has proven to me that the young generation black are more racist than they take credit for.

Democrats are evil    

YOU PEOPLE have created this. Your double standard prohibits ANYONE from speaking the truth as it is presented in front of you. And the losers are YOU. Whenever anyone closes their eyes to the truth and ignores the reality of facts, that individual or group just digs the hole a little deeper making it almost impossible to crawl out of. YOU PEOPLE are never going to be taken seriously by the average person because it will be a common FACT by all that YOU choose to live in your own little world of ignorance. I pity you and your race. This is what being poor is all about. And YOU PEOPLE embrace poverty like it is gold. And because of the ignorance you embrace, you are so far away from the truth, it's laughable. Personally, I could care less. Some races are just inferior than others, and nothing will ever change that. Good luck crawling out of that hole. But you better start trying now. You're getting awfully close to Hell.

What's the problem?????????????? It is his opinion,......he's entitled to it. Every race can say "whatever" they want except the white race. STOP WHINING.....THAT IS WHAT KEEPS YOU "DOWN"!!!!!!!!! Once you get above the whining (like the white race) then and only then can you move on. TRY IT....YOU MIGHT LIKE IT!!!!! I forgot , you would rather have things handed to you!!!!!

Pacman Jones is a jerk and a joke. But it doesn't matter what color he is. The real reason he seems to get away with all the crap - is because he's a professional football player - no matter what color he might be. When he was in college - he probably got away with everything because he played football and now he's a pro - he's a spoiled professional jerk. Not all college football players and not all pro football players are idiots - but there are a few that feel they are entitled to do what they want when they want to and not suffer the consequences.

Imus is also a jerk and a joke. I recommend everyone stop listening to his show.
