I wish black, self proclaimed African Americans and actual African Americans, and anyone else with black skin that hates other races, could have their very own country, separate from the USA. They would be the majority, they could own it all and not let any other races in their country. The United States would be a much nicer place for those of us that can get along and not bring skin color into everything, including the weather!

Your best example is a man who said "nappy haired hoes"!! Of course it would be racist if Don Imus said it he made racist remarks all the time on show. So I'm really seeing the validity of using that argument...

He was just having some lighthearted fun.I do not see how this is "racist" as he did direct racism at anyone...

Some may wonder why FOX News is considered racist. The logic of liberals is that since Obama is black and 90%+ of blacks are liberals and you oppose liberal policies you must be a racist because 90% of black are liberal and Obama is black man - well, half black anyway. If you happen to be black and conservative, you are an Uncle Tom.

That is why FOX News is considered racist. Never mind that CNN and MSNBC have no black talk show, prime time at least, hosts. But since they support liberal policies and Obama, and by extension 90%+ of blacks, they are not racist.

Since during Primetime FOX News commentators usually beat all their liberal competition combined, America is also a racist nation. See: Reverend Jeremiah Wright for details on this.

Al Roker is - well, he is just like that old Uncle who shows up at Thanksgiving dinner and constantly farts and says inappropriate things.

It doesn't matter how lighthearted he may have felt when he said it. Reverse what was said and replace black with white and imagine a white man saying it. If it's offensive and wrong for white people to say something, then conversely it should be wrong for black people to say it as well. As long as we
have double standards based on skin color we will continue to have
racial disharmony. You can't have it both ways.

I agree just another example how its ok for any other race except white people to have pride. Like someone said if someone went woohoo all white girls today it would be racists. Shows you race is important to them than to white people. I like all the African Americans they have on NBC because most of them have good personalities and are decent journalist. So, AL we're judging you on your work not the color of your skin. Thats the only thing Ann Coulter ever said that made sense she made a comment of how fast they dropped Obama playing the race card on that professor without knowing the facts. He got off scott free of making racist assumptions against whitey,

If a white guy said that, it would be looked at differently or more racist. That is because you have to look at the history of race relations in our country. Black people were enslaved and still face some discrimination in this country. Most channels have white weathermen and white people in general. Al was just excited that things are changing. Hopefully race wont matter and everyone would have "actual" equal opportunities and certain occupations wont be predominately occupied by one race. Look at it this way, if it were a woman getting excited about three women in the profession (on the weather channel), noone would say, "If a white man said that...".

You can't compare the things black people say to the things white people say. Of course, no white person could come on t.v. and say what Al said because there's nothing progressive about it. Just like gays are allowed to have their gay pride events, if straight people had a straight person only day they'd be called bigots. It's just the way it is because a white person hasn't been repressed to a white person isn't going to rejoice in something they've always had. And I'm white by the way so I like to see a black person actually celebrating a moment like that! I think it's very cool that he noticed it and embraced it the way he did.

I can't stand this big mouth. I turn the channel when he comes on. He's full of himself and likes to listen to himself talk.
