Question: Popular radio personality Don Imus was fired last week over racial cracks he made about the Rutgers women’s basketball team. Your reaction?



This goes against his and everyone’s freedom of speech. What troubles me is that Rev. Sharpton has a history of making offensive comments and nothing seems to happen to him. This is complete hypocrisy. I think the stress Imus faced is punishment enough. He should have been suspended and that’s it.

– Steve Sternfeld, president, Hillel


This was an infringement of his freedom of speech. Truthfully, I never heard his program, but I’m aware of the incident. Why is it acceptable for rap artists to routinely spew out offensive lyrics? There is a double standard here. I don’t believe he should have been fired. I think a suspension would have sufficed.

– Chaim Vizel, president, Tagar






Imus went too far. The comments he made were hurtful. Some may argue that it wasn’t really such a big deal, but [making something a big deal] is what Sharpton is good at doing. Sharpton is always focused on the press for attention. If the comment had been made by a nobody, nothing would have happened. The rap culture is notorious for such terms, and Sharpton is silent. Imus did go too far, but he should have just had to face some kind of monetary penalty.

This is a violation of everyone’s rights. Nobody has free speech anymore. We are all so consumed with being politically correct these days. Imus is a comedian and an entertainer, and people nitpicked on this issue. Half the stuff Imus said on his program was offensive and everyone always laughed along.
