Damon Wayans was on The View recently and spoke of freedom of speech surrounding the Don Imus controversy referring to the women's basketball team as "nappy-headed hos." See the video below.
Personally, nervous or otherwise, there was way too much laughter accompanying Wayans' comments. Sherri Sheppard changed the flow of the conversation but the damage was already done.
Last time I checked, I was black too. Contrary to what Wayans said I was not laughing, I found his comments highly offensive and insulting.
But you know what? Calling someone a nappy-headed ho may not be illegal such as yelling "FIRE" in a crowded room but I can also exercise my freedom by NOT watching Mr. Wayans' new sitcom on ABC-TV next season.
