IMUS RESIGN? Sharpton, Imus (inset)

Don Imus is already in hot water with black community leaders, having called the Rutgers University women's basketball squad a bunch of "nappy-headed hos" on his radio show. Today Reverend Al Sharpton took it even further, accusing Imus of being racist towards white people as well and sticking to his position that the embattled host must resign.

"I really do understand the horrible damage I've done to these young women," Imus lamely lamented during the tail end of his two-hour stint on Sharpton's show. "Now they have some old cracker on the radio calling them some kind of name so they have to deal with that." Sharpton then made it clear he wouldn't tolerate that type of language. "The term 'cracker' you use on yourself ... I would appreciate if you would respect your own race on my show."
