Nappy-headed ho sues Imus

Here's the story.

I thought libel required some actual damages, or at least that people might actually believe the defamatory statements. This nappy-headed ho is claiming that reasonable people might mistake her for a garden tool with diapers on her head?

Sad. She's gone from being a celebrated college athlete to a lottery ticket lawsuit queen. What Imus said was stupid and racist. But we still have a First Amendment in this country, and calling someone a “nappy-headed ho” in a comedic context still falls well within its purview.
