What Did He Say?

Did Imus step in it again?

This morning while discussing suspended Dallas Cowboys cornerback Adam Jones, Imus asked sports guy Warner Wolf, "What color is he?" After Warner told Imus he was African-American, Imus said, "Well there you go. Now we know."

One has to ask why he even ventured down this road today given his past "situation." Should Imus have refrained from asking his race? Can one even ask and get away with that question in 2008? Was his comeback answer toxic or benign? And does it matter...he asked the question.

Will this episode manifest itself into something or nothing at all? Time will tell.

Listen to the audio and decide for yourself.
