You’d think the man would learn.

From the New York Times TV Decoder Blog:

Don Imus, who was fired last year for referring to the Rutgers women’s basketball team as “nappy-headed hos,’’ waded into racially treacherous waters again on his new radio program Monday morning, in a brief exchange about a suspended professional football player, Adam “Pacman’’ Jones.

When told by the program’s sportscaster, Warner Wolf, that Mr. Jones no longer wished to be called by his nickname — so that people might forget his record of multiple arrests in recent years — Mr. Imus asked, “What color is he?’’

“He’s African-American,’’ Mr. Wolf responded.

“Well, there you go,’’ Mr. Imus said. “Now we know.’’

Racist?  I’d say so.
