Keep Dog Off TV sign now

On November 1st 2007, it was reported that star of Dog the Bounty Hunter used a racial slur repeatedly in a private conversation to his son Tucker in regards to an African American woman who Tucker was dating. Not only did Duane Dog Chapman use this horrible word, he also tried to force his son to break ties with this woman based on her ethnicity.

As such we as a community feel that this hatemonger should not be allowed back on television. Your station mentions is its mission statement that Our culture fosters creativity, productivity and mutual respect across generational, ethnic, racial, religious, thought, gender, sexual orientation and other lines resulting in an organization that values its dedicated employees and culturally aware leaders. as well as Always holding ourselves accountable to the highest standards. Clearly calling someone a derogatory name is not a high standard. If Dogs show was not one of your highest rated shows he would be gone. Would you let one of your directors refer to an employee using a racial slur and still keep them on board?

I leave you with two definitions of the word racist, one from the dictionary the other is the exemplification of the word from Duane Dog Chapmans own mouth.

Racist: based on racial intolerance; racist remarks

Duane "Dog" Chapman: I don't care if she's a Mexican, a whore or whatever. It's not because she's black, it's because we use the word ni**er sometimes here. I'm not gonna take a chance ever in life of losing everything I've worked for for 30 years because some fucking ni**er heard us say ni**er and turned us in to the Enquirer magazine. Our career is over! I'm not taking that chance at all! Never in life! Never! Never! If Lyssa [Dog's daughter] was dating a ni**er, we would all say 'fuck you!' And you know that. If Lyssa brought a black guy home ya da da... it's not that they're black, it's none of that. It's that we use the word ni**er. We don't mean you fucking scum ni**er without a soul. We don't mean that shit. But America would think we mean that. And we're not taking a chance on losing everything we got over a racial slur because our son goes with a girl like that. I can't do that Tucker. You can't expect Gary, Bonnie, Cecily, all them young kids to [garbled] because 'I'm in love for 7 months' - fuck that! So, I'll help you get another job but you can not work here unless you break up with her and she's out of your life. I can't handle that shit. I got 'em in the parking lot trying to record us. I got that girl saying she's gonna wear a recorder...

    How dare you, in this day and age, even consider keeping this guy on TV? He decided to "ruin everything he has worked for" when he opened his mouth on TV. What a fool! If you put him back on the air, you will lose me as a viewer forever. As you know, if s

    Racial intolerance is ridiculous, disturbing and ignorant. Those who perpetuate this intolerance to the masses must be shut down.
