After the cable network, A&E indefinitely suspended production of their hit reality series Dog the Bounty Hunter, the brunt of its impact has been hitting the airwaves. Sean Hannity of Hannity & Colmes fame have tried to rehabilitate the Dog’s image by likening his comments to the “equivalent of him cursing.” Whereas, others are calling for his immediate dismissal and for his show to be taken off the air, BET’s Jeff Johnson has a difference in opinion with the masses.
In an emailed statement, Johnson states that although he believes that the word should not be used as a term of endearment, with all of the racist rants going on, he’s appalled at Black people. An excerpt below:
“Duane "Dog" Chapman goes on a rant on a voice message about N-word this and n-word that, voicing his obvious disgust at the thought of a family member dating an N-word. He further concludes by stating that he would advise that family member to refrain from dating this person, as he did not wish to risk his career by using the N-word on TV. I am more appalled by this tirade than by the racist rants of [Don] Imus, Michael Richards, and Mel Gibson (while not about black people) combined; but I am appalled at black people.”
Johnson further comments by saying that although “Dog” is a racist that his conversation, a private phone call, was taped without his knowledge and submitted to the press. With two wrongs not making a right, Johnson completely disagrees with the sentiments of Duane Chapman, but concedes that it becomes dangerous when the media, the public and Black America begins to demonize people for private conversations. An excerpt below:
“I appreciate Duane’s self-awareness in saying (in so many words), “I am a racist, so stay away from me”. I have more respect for an honest racist who admits their feelings, than a lying two-face that talks about tolerance and acceptance (even privately), yet can’t stand anyone different than himself or herself. Black leadership needs to focus its attention on the legitimate, systemic institutional racism that continues to plague this nation from top to bottom. But that is a harder fight than targeting a lone bigot, not worth the energy. Legitimate leadership should begin to recognize that.”



YOU KNOW I AGREE WITH JEFF ABOUT THIS BECAUSE WE AS BLACKS NEED TO ADDRESS THE REAL PROBLEM AND NOT THESE INDIVIDUALS

I really hated when this happens. It is what it is. It is not like most Americans don't use the word because I'm pretty sure that they do. I'm upset at the fact when a non-black person says the word, the media has a field day with the situation, trying to make blacks feel as bad as they already do. It's true. Jena 6, Michael Vick, the guy in Fl, the lady in WV, etc. The media designs to make blacks look and feel bad.

If you want my honset opinion, black people are hypocrites from hell. Blacks use the n-word on the daily bases, but when a non-black person says it, they're consider a racist, which is NOT true. Blacks will judge and attack each other before attacking a non-black person for no reason at all. I wasn't offended by what Dog said because most whites say it. Does it mean that they're racist?

One thing about blacks that I don't like is they don't know how to deal with shit. I'll bet you Al Sharpton with hold a freaking press confernce about what Dog said. He said it. So what? STFU and deal with it.
