Re: A Black Man's view on Imus
He's got it pegged alright. In my experience as a public school teacher in a 95% black school, the problems they are facing are generally caused by their lack of self esteem or self hatred as he put it.
I can go through holiday seasons and summer vacation without hearing the rude terms of 'nigger, mf, ho, bitch' until I get back to school again and hear the students calling themselves those terms.
I teach geography, and we learn a lot about other cultures, religions, and customs. Black Americans are the only culture I know of that greats each other with either a curse or an insult. Too bad.
