Bounty Hunter Duane "Dog" Chapman, Don Imus and Nigger Jokes

Questions

" I wonder how the Bounty hunter would like it if he were called "Bounty Hunter and white Nigger Duane "Dog" Chapman ? I Wonder how Don Imus would like it if he were called Don "white Nigger" Imus? "

- AAPP

Why is there so much hatred in America? Why are so many whites in America, so comfortable with calling black women niggers? For that matter, why are whites so comfortable calling any black person a nigger? Why are blacks allowing it? Maybe this is what happens when black women date white guys? Or am I being to general?

Why have we been so tricked into calling ourselves niggers? Are you tired of the word? Did the NAACP bury the word Nigger, yet they are willing to allow a black woman to be treated like a nigger? Raped like a nigger? How much can a group of Americans take? How much can a group of Americans allow, time after time, after time?

This moron (below) is not the first one to call a black women nigger and won't be the last. Come on let's get real. The question is, whether there is anything black folks, as a collective group of people in the country can do about it?

If so, what? If so, when? if so, how? If so, why? If so when?

Or is this going to be happening for the
foreseeable future?

Anyone got any answers?



Dog Man

There is more.

The reality TV show starring celebrity bounty hunter Duane "Dog" Chapman was pulled from the air indefinitely on Friday, two days after a private phone conversation in which he used a racial slur was posted online.

Listen to the audio tapes:

Cable channel A&E suspended production of the fifth series of Chapman's popular show, "Dog the Bounty Hunter," as the phone call was made public on Wednesday, but on Friday the network went a step further.

"In evaluating the circumstances of the last few days, A&E has decided to take 'Dog The Bounty Hunter' off the network's schedule for the foreseeable future," an A&E spokesman said.

AAPP: Check out the key words, "foreseeable future." Will after all the hype goes, will he be back on the air like you know who? Don Imus. You know, the man who was on 60 Minutes in 1998, yes, Don Imus told Mike Wallace that his show had someone specifically assigned to do "nigger jokes."

Come on lets get real, we know that in 2000, Newsday's Philip Noble monitored the Imus show for months, then cited numerous examples of his racist, homophobic and misogynist references. In 2001, Imus promised syndicated columnist Clarence Page that he wouldn't make racist comments about black athletes any more.

But in April 2007, on the morning after the mostly black Rutgers University women's basketball team had reached the finals of the NCAA women's basketball championship, Imus offhandedly remarked, "That's some nappy-headed hos." Calls for his removal from the airwaves were invoked by public figures ranging from Barack (not black enough) Obama to Al (too black) Sharpton, from feminist Eleanor (not woman enough) Smeal to Jesse ("Let's go to Hymie-town") Jackson. Although Imus proceeded to apologize all over the media, ranging from Sharpton's radio program to the Today show, he felt that he was only following the lyrics of black rappers, from the Wu Tang Clan ("nappy-headed niggaz") to Ludacris (boasting of random "hos in different area codes").

Foreseeable future? Is that not another code word?

I just finished reading a post regarding Don Imus by Paul Krassner, titled He's Back!

Don Imus Meets Michael Richards
Hat Tip:
Paul Krassner and counterpunch.org

In the post Krassner talks about the early 1960s, when Dick Gregory called his autobiography Nigger, because, he explained, "I told my mama if she hears anybody shout 'nigger,' they're just advertising my book." Richard Pryor called one of his albums That Crazy Nigger, and wrote an article for The Realist about the disproportionate number of blacks fighting and dying in Vietnam, titled "Uncle Sam Wants You, Nigger!" After a visit to Africa, he reclaimed his heritage, promising not to use that word again.

Krassner also talks about Lenny Bruce, on stage one night, riding an invisible unicycle as he balanced his way along a tightrope into uncharted comedic territory:

"The reason I don't get hung up with, well, say, integration, is that by the time Bob Newhart is integrated, I'm bigoted. And anyway, Martin Luther King, Bayard Rustin are geniuses, the battle's won. By the way, are there any niggers here tonight? [Outraged whisper, as if an audience member] 'What did he say? Are there any niggers here tonight? Jesus Christ! Is that cruel. Does he have to get that low for laughs? Wow! Have I ever talked about the schwarzes when the schwarzes had gone home? Or spoken about the Moulonjohns when they'd left? Or placated some Southerner by absence of voice when he ranted and raved about nigger nigger nigger?'

"[In his own voice]: Are there any niggers here tonight? I know that one nigger who works here, I see him back there. Oh, there's two niggers, customers, and, ah, aha! Between those two niggers sits one kike--man, thank God for the kike! Uh, two kikes. That's two kikes, and three niggers, and one spic. One spic--two, three spics. One mick. One mick, one spic, one hick, thick, funky, spunky boogey. And there's another kike. Three kikes. Three kikes, one guinea, one greaseball. Three greaseballs, two guineas. Two guineas, one hunky funky lace-curtain Irish mick. That mick spic hunky funky boogey. Two guineas plus three greaseballs and four boogies makes usually three spics. Minus two Yid spic Polack funky spunky Polacks. [Auctioneer's voice] 'Five more niggers! Five more niggers!' [Gambler's voice] 'I pass with six niggers and eight micks and four spics.'

"[In his own voice] The point? That the word's suppression gives it the power, the violence, the viciousness. If President Kennedy got on television and said, 'Tonight I'd like to introduce the niggers in my cabinet,' and he yelled 'nigger-nigger-nigger-nigger-nigger-nigger-nigger' at every nigger he saw, 'boogey-boogey-boogey-boogey-boogey-nigger-nigger-nigger-nigger' till nigger didn't mean anything any more, till nigger lost its meaning, you'd never make any 4-year-old nigger when he came home from school. Screw 'Negro!' Oh, it's so good to say, 'Nigger!' Boy! 'Hello, Mr. Nigger, how're you?'"

Krassner also talks about how four decades later, Dave Chappelle on his TV show played a man delivering milk to the all-white family, the Niggars, and he did indeed say, "Hello, Mr. Niggar, how're you?"

But consider the contrast between Lenny's good-natured, poetic routine and Michael Richards' mean-spirited, uncontrollable outburst. In November 2006, at the Laugh Factory in Los Angeles, in response to heckling from a table of four African Americans (three men and a woman), he suddenly became enraged with repressed hatred:

"Shut up! Fifty years ago we'd hang you upside down with a fucking fork up your ass! [Laughter in the audience, apparently unaware of the heckler's race and that the reference is to lynching] You can talk, you can talk, you can talk, now you're brave, motherfucker! Throw his ass out! He's a nigger! He's a nigger! He's a nigger!"

"[A woman in the audience] "Oh my god!"

"A nigger! Look, there's a nigger! [Imitating reactions in the audience] 'Oooh! Oooh!' All right, you see, this shocks you, it shocks you to see what lies beneath your stupid motherfuckers!"

[A man at the heckler table] "That wasn't called for."

"What was uncalled for? It's uncalled for you to interrupt my ass, you cheap motherfucker! You guys have been talking and talking and talking."

[Voice from the audience] "Calm down."

"What's the matter with you? Is this too much for you to handle?"

"I said calm down."

"They're gonna arrest me for calling a black man a nigger? Wait a minute, where's he going?"

"That was uncalled for, you fucking cracker-ass motherfucker!"

"You calling me cracker-ass, nigger?

"Fucking white boy!"

"Are you threatening me?"

"We'll see what's up."

"Oh, it's a big threat. That's how you get back at the man."

"You're just not funny. That's why you're a reject. Never had no shows, never had no movies. Seinfeld, that's it."

"Oh, I guess you got me there. You're absolutely right. I'm just a wash-up. Gotta stand on this stage."

"That's it, we've had it. Niggers--that's un-fucking-called-for. That ain't necessary."

"Well, you interrupted me, pal. That's what you get when you interrupt the white man, don't you know."

"Uncalled for, that was uncalled for."

"You see, there's still those words, those words, those words."

Richards then walked off stage.

Later, seemingly stunned at his own racist rage, he apologized on the media again and again as best he could.

African-American comedians reacted to Richards' use of the n-word. Read More HERE

AAPP: Are you tired of the word nigger? Or is Bounty Hunter Duane "Dog" Chapman, and Don Imus, just two white "Niggers" that are off the air only for the foreseeable future?
