Imus Defends Comments About "Pacman" Jones

On Monday, Don Imus' sportscaster, Warner Wolf, mentioned that football player Adam "Pacman" Jones has been arrested six times. Imus retorted, "What color is he?"

"African American," said Wolf.

"Well, there you go," said Imus. "Now we know."

Imus is now saying that he has been misunderstood. Was Imus making more racist comments, or do we buy his excuse?

More importantly, do we even care anymore?
