Why hasn't the NAACP complained about HS compairing blacks to animals?

    Did I hear it wrong on the show a while back that Pelican stated something about not understanding people who go to Africa and that he'd already seen it because he grew up "in a safari"?

    It was something like that, right? I can't find any audio. Am I recalling this correctly? And if so, why hasn't the NAACP complained? Pelican basically called black people in Roosevelt animals that he viewed as a child as if he were on safari in Africa. How is this not a story? Why aren't the sponsors of AGT getting letters?

    It's really surprising. What if Imus made such a statement? Imus merely said something about "nappy headed hoes" and had to go begging forgiveness from Rev. Jesse.

    So, Wiggy can call blacks animals and still get the chair on AGT?

    Well Imus said that shit while being broadcast on TV and terrestrial radio. How many of Howard's 600,000/week listeners were tuned in at the right time to hear him say that?

    Because only 200 - 300 subscribers were actually listening.

    That's a point. Maybe the NAACP needs to be let known about the statement. Think about it: Paula Deen called an armed robber "Reggie" 30 years ago and she lost her shit but Pelican essentially calls blacks "animals" that he viewed as if on "safari" in African within the last couple months and nothing happened? No loss of AGT?

    Seems pretty fucked up to me.

    The NAACP is about the advancement of colored people. Jackson and Sharpton are about the advancement of themselves.

    Ohh! I get it, it's funny because it's taking place in Africa. And the Serengeti and Okavango Delta are in Africa! Oh, that's a knee slapper, Howard. Howard Stern, you old whip, never failing to crack me up.

    Howard also said he wondered if they would see any "natives" at the mandela memorial with "big plates in their lips"

    1) The main reason is that Howard is not really relevant to pop culture any more. Even evolved Howard has said things that could be deemed "offensive" to certain groups, but while Alec Baldwin, and Martin Bashir get canned (just the latest two examples) nobody notices what Howard says.

    2) Howard gave up the free speech fight and joined the pc police. He was always left of center (especially liberal on social issues), but he was first and foremost someone trying to make us laugh regardless of the topic or target. Now he's completely onboard the D-team so he's afforded the benefit of the doubt and will get away with whatever. Think of some of the race jokes Bill Maher makes, and how if Rush said the same thing there would be an uprising in the media. Well, Howard's evolution has gotten him a pass.

    3) Finally, Stern has basically done nothing but kiss Obama's ass the second Hillary was out of the primary. Even when there are obvious opportunites to poke fun of the President (as seen in recent daily show segments) Howard doodles away.

    I'm not so sure about that shit because Baldwin is Left. He was a host for Air America.

    And Pelican may be irrelevant BUT he is on a broadcast television show with AGT.

    I wonder if the NAACP has even been made aware of his statements?

    I will search marks friggin to see if there is a written account to back up these statements. That would go a long way toward finding the audio as well.

    Baldwin called a guy a fag

    Despite the fact that he is a high profile liberal and fixture on the Hampton circuit, Baldwin commited the unpardonable sin in today's media environment.

    Also the naacp has been so busy the past few years playing defense for the President and attempt to fight back at any criticism of him by playing the race card that they have little time to waste on a radio personality who obsesses over Jay Leno and whose last pop culture splash outside of agt was apolgizing to the fat ugly girl from the hbo show girls

    Who knows, they seem pretty desparate to stay relevant so maybe they will take a shot at Stern in the future but I doubt it.
