Check out this brassy clear voice on the Imess

I've just discovered, via a number of trenchant, brassy, and oh-so-cogent comments made on today's To The Point, Jasmyne Cannick, an African American woman blogger and political cauldron stirrer. Her point is: Imus, so what? Sure, the depraved should be deprived of a public, but who in the black community knows, or cares about, Don Imus? More importantly, Cannick pitches, it's the misogynists with currency, like Snoop Doggy Dog and 50Cent, who do the most damage. Oh, how she bewails the sisters bumping Snoop from their car windows, their young daughters captive in the back seat being primed for abuse in perpetuity!

(If you've got the stomach for it, check out the YouTube of a Snoop show. You'll see what Jasmyne means.)
