Demands Apology 6-1-07
Wilhite, the president of Wings Communications, said in an on-air
statement on WELE-AM 1380
that NAACP spokeswoman Cynthia Slater misspoke by calling Big
John a racist. "In our society, to label someone as a racist
is serious business," Wilhite said. "It should be reserved
for the Imuses of the world who truly do have a racist mindset. Big
John clearly does not." Ms.
Slater refused to apologize, saying there was no need. "I do know
what he said on the radio, and what he said was racist," she said Thursday
night. "I don't need to apologize to Big John."
