The Legacy of the iPod is a Legacy of Nappy Hair

Shawn Fanning, creator of the ground-breaking, but now discontinued MP3 file-sharing system "Napster," criticized radio shock-jock Don Imus, for what he called "gross insensitivity."

"I may not be black, or a woman, or even able to balance my checkbook, but I do know what it's like to have nappy hair. I spent four years of college with a head full of it. That's why I called my MP3 sharing program "Napster" - because of my nappy hair. The pain that Mr. Imus has caused me, with his remarks, is deep, and it is painful."

Hair stylist Georgio LaBelle says that it's not uncommon for people with similar hairstyles to band together in times of adversity. "I once knew a whole group men with the Mullet, you know? Everyone made fun of them, I mean everyone, but they stuck together, and they still got the Mullet today."

Fanning says that he is proud to stand up with the women of Rutgers in getting out this important message. "It's a matter of pride and integrity." Fanning said, then lowered his voice slightly, "Also, I hear they're kind of a bunch of 'hos... if you know what I mean."
