Amazing. While the opportunists and haters can't seem to forgive much less move on, only ones who matter in all of this, the Rutgers's women's basketball team, have turned the other cheek and accepted Don Imus' apology:
The Rutgers women's basketball team accepted radio host Don Imus' apology Friday for insulting them on the air, saying that he deserves a chance to move on but that they hope the furor his words caused will be a catalyst for change.
"We, the Rutgers University Scarlet Knight basketball team, accept - accept - Mr. Imus' apology, and we are in the process of forgiving," coach C. Vivian Stringer read from a team statement a day after the women met personally with Imus and his wife.
"We still find his statements to be unacceptable, and this is an experience that we will never forget," the statement read
The team had just play in the NCAA national championship game and lost when Imus, on his radio show, called the team members "nappy-headed hos." The statement outraged listeners and set off a national debate about taste and tolerance and led his firing by CBS on Thursday.
