nappy headed ho

I commend this action since to sue would've been a complete waste of time. To actually look at what Imus said was it true of false??
Imus made the comment of nappy headed ho about the Rutgers University women's basketball team. Loosely defined except for the sheer stupidity of saying it on the air I would imagine what Imus said was probably correct.
Many women in the feminist movement declare that all sex is rape or something very similar in terms. You might ask where I'm going with this line of logic.
A "HO" is according to Webster's Dictionary slang for whore which is loosely defined as someone who is sexually promiscuous, which unless the victim is a virgin I believe proving slander should've been quite difficult to prove what he said was WRONG.

My take whether you agree with it or not.

Rutgers Player Withdraws Imus Lawsuit

NEW YORK (AP) — A Rutgers University basketball player on Tuesday withdrew a slander and defamation lawsuit she had filed against Don Imus and CBS Radio, among others, after the shock jock called the team "nappy headed hos."

Kia Vaughn had contended in the lawsuit filed in August in New York state Supreme Court that the comments made by Imus had damaged her reputation. The lawsuit also named various media outlets that broadcast Imus' show.

Marti McKenzie, a spokeswoman for Vaughn's attorney, Richard Ancowitz, said in a statement that Vaughn had chosen to focus on her education at New Jersey's Rutgers University as a journalism major and as an athlete with the basketball team.

"Her strong commitments to both have influenced her decision to withdraw the lawsuit at this time," the statement said.

A lawyer for Imus, Martin Garbus, said his client had paid no money to Vaughn. CBS Radio did not immediately return a message requesting comment.
