Rutgers Women's Basketball Team Speaks Out

NEW YORK (AP) -- Radio host Don Imus says his two-week suspension is appropriate and insists he's not racist.

Still, The Reverend Jesse Jackson says the punishment won't stop Rainbow/Push coalition protests planned in the wake of Imus' offensive on-air comments. Jackson marched with about 50 protesters yesterday outside N-B-C offices in Chicago.

M-S-N-B-C and C-B-S Radio suspended Imus for calling the Rutgers female basketball players "nappy-headed hos."

Rutgers team coach C- Vivian Stringer said today at a news conference that the women on the team are the best the nation has to offer. She says they are gifted women of class and distinction.
