Racism: Then and Now
Program #DAVA012. Recorded in Seattle, WA on April 17, 2007.Radio shock jock Don Imus's racist and misogynistic remarks about the Rutgers Women's basketball team ignited protest that resulted in his being taken off the air. Another radio host, Neil Boortz, called former Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney a "ghetto slut." Defenders of such of such outrages say, Hey, They do it. Just listen to gangsta rapper lyrics. Racism today has taken new shapes and forms. There are no Bull Connor police chiefs with water hoses, truncheons and dogs threatening African Americans. De jure Jim Crow is gone but de facto Jim Crow is still around.
