I think the reason that most people claim to be offended, is because they are being told that they should be. I understand your point, and I'm sure that a few people would have been offended by his comments, but nothing even close to what we are seeing. People with their own agenda are adding fuel to the fire and taking it way beyond reason.

Never underestimate the power of stupid people in large groups.

(and for those that disagree with me, that statement was far more offensive than Imus's because it was for real)

Because you know that as much as you trade friendly insults with your Mexican friends, you're smart enough to know that in certain situations you wouldn't dare say those things - for obvious reasons.

Yes, I totally agree and as I've already said, I think his comment was out of place on his show. I don't think it justified him being fired though, or even a suspension.

He recognized that he said something that he shouldn't have and he apologized for it. It was a sincere and heartfelt apology. It should have ended there, and would have if others didn't blow it up into something it wasn't.
