Turns out that Her Royal Pantsuit is not so much bothered
when the person throwing around the comments about "nappy-headed hos" is a fundraiser.
Mrs. Clinton, you may recall, took umbrage at Imus's remarks, branding them "small-minded bigotry and coarse sexism." His words, she said in an e-mail to supporters, "showed a disregard for basic decency and were disrespectful and degrading to African Americans and women everywhere."
Good for her, I say, except it must be asked why she was down in Florida making nice to -- and pocketing big bucks from -- a rapper whose obscenity-laced lyrics praise violence, perpetuate racist stereotypes and demean black women.
Some (redacted) examples of the obscenity-laced lyrics at the site. I suspect that if Hillary decides not to accept contributions from hip-hop artists whose lyrics perpetuate racist stereotypies and demean black women, she's not going to be taking in much money from the recording industry.
