It is clear that the Imus controversy has sparked a much larger national debate on the themes of racism and sexism. We have been covering the story on the show with live interviews and roundtable discussions about both the specific incident with Imus and the Rutgers Women's college basketball team, and racism as a whole in our country. You have all been active participants in these discussions by sending us your comments to the blog and also writing in to our viewer email - so much so that our blog was overwhelmed by the comments and we had to turn them off, and our viewer email is having trouble loading!
I just wanted to take a moment thanking all of you for sending us your thoughts and concerns on this sensitive subject, and also encourage you to keep doing so. There is a lot more to say and we'd like to hear whatever it is you may want to say in response to this story. Please bear with us as we get to your comments - we will be updating this site and our own website as the day progresses.
