Don Imus was just making a “sarcastic point” when he asked “what color” oft-arrested cornerback Adam “Pacman” Jones is, he said on his show today. When informed that Jones was black, Imus replied, “There you go. Now we know.” The rejoinder sparked complaints against the reformed shock jock, but Imus says he was sympathizing with Jones. “I meant that he was being picked on because he's black,” Imus said.
“What people should be outraged about is that they arrest blacks for no reason,” Imus said on the show. “I mean, there's no reason to arrest this kid six times.”
