>Dog returning to the air

>Happy Wednesday everyone. Gotta quick reminder for you guys.

You remember Dog from Dog the Bounty Hunter? Well, he will be returning to A&E this summer. I completely forgot about all this until a post at BlackPerspective reminded me of this. Anyway, Yobachi over at BlackPerspective is asking all everyone to blog today (Wednesday) for respect in the media.

I encourage all of you to stand up and let A&E hear your voice. This issue is just too important for us to ignore. We can not let broadcast and cable networks take our economic power for granted.

Here is the contact information for A&E’s vice presidents of production:

We all remember how offended we were when Dog shamelessly used the N word to degrade his son’s girlfriend. Last year, Sandra Rose linked a transcript of Dog’s rant:

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…

Tucker Chapman: I don’t even know what to say.

Do we really want to see Dog on the air again? I don’t claim to speak for anyone, but I will scream a resounding no if anyone were to ask me this question.

The real question should be to A&E: Do they want to lose respect from a segment of the American population all in the name of ratings?

Let your voice be heard!
