During an on-air conversation Monday about the arrests of suspended Dallas Cowboys cornerback Adam ``Pacman'' Jones, Imus asked, ``What color is he?''
Told by sports announcer Warner Wolf that Jones is ``African-American,'' Imus responded: ``There you go. Now we know.''
Civil rights leader Al Sharpton issued a statement calling the exchange disturbing ``because it plays into stereotypes.'' He says his National Action Network was still deciding how to respond.
Imus was fired from his previous show last year after he made a racially charged comment about the Rutgers women's basketball team.
Representatives for Imus and WABC Radio haven't returned calls.
