Don Imus comments

I guess some have heard about recent comments made by Don Imus about the Rutgers women basketball team.

He called them "nappy-headed hos". While the term "hos" is clearly stands for "whores" I have no clue how in combination with "nappy-headed", which exact meaning eludes me , it's "racially charged". Am I missing something or it's just a regular outcry of the familiar characters.

and, btw, what the hell is "nappy-headed"??? Is it like a bad hair style?
