Limbaugh and “The Magic Negro”

Posted by Jack Stephens on May 6, 2007

Afro-Neitzen blogs about the differences between Limbaugh’s “magic Negro” theme song and Imus’ “nappy-headed ho’s comment in the blog of the same name:

Rush Limbaugh’s racist “parody” called “Obama the Magic Negro”, is set to the tune of “Puff the Magic Dragon”.

Will Clear Channel-owned Premiere Radio Networks (which also distributes Rev. Jesse Jackson’s Keep Hope Alive radio show) cancel Rush’s show? You’re kidding me, right?

So, why was Imus sacrificed, but Limbaugh will likely prevail, you ask?

The entity that distributes Limbaugh’s show is owned by conglomerate, Clear Channel Communications. So, what does that mean? Some of your favorite “Black” radio stations/shows that so many African Americans listen to everyday will have a conflict of interest if they were to call for terminating Premiere’s distribution of Limbaugh’s show because — like Limbaugh’s show — they too are owned by Clear Channel!
