Al Sharpton Still Wary of Imus

Wednesday, 17 Oct 2007 03:40 PM

Don Imus is returning to the airwaves on WABC Radio in December, but his sharpest critic, Rev. Al Sharpton, said he’s not yet ready to give his blessing.

Sharpton said he wants one demand met before he will consider guaranteeing there will be no more of the protests that led to Imus’ dismissal from CBS Radio last April for calling the Rutgers women’s basketball team “nappy-headed ho’s.”

Sharpton wants officials from WABC’s parent company to meet with members of the National Association of Black Journalists, the New York Post reports.

“Public advocacy groups have more than enough reason to be concerned that his return will not return us to the racist and misogynist tirades of the past,” Sharpton said.

“Certainly, advertisers who enjoy supporting a broad-based consumer market should be assured that if they resume financial support to the Don Imus show that he will not engage in the kind of rhetoric that led to his demise earlier this year.”
