With many of the media networks spinning the Imus thing back into the face of black America and adding Hip Hop to the mix, Snoop chimed in on the difference between him using the word ‘ho’ and Imus:
“[Rappers] are not talking about no collegiate basketball girls who have made it to the next level in education and sports. We’re talking about ho’s that’s in the ‘hood that ain’t doing shit, that’s trying to get a nigga for his money. These are two separate things.”
Plus the media and resulting public’s knee-jerk assumption that rappers should adhere to the same code of conduct and decency as a nationally syndicated and rapidly aging radio personality is not only absurd, but frightening ignorant. Amazingly the media successfully uses it as a media technique to redirect and ignore the real issues, get more ratings, and instead spin this thing even further down the drain than it already is.
