    besides, i don't buy that revelations/numbers crap. according to the biblical scholars i find credible (in other words, the biblical scholars who don't believe in a coming rapture, which, by the way, is never mentioned in the bible), (1) what is now the book of revelations is one book of many of its time that were apocalyptic (kinda how like chick lit is a popular type of literature now) and (2) such books were written as a "release" and response to the very oppressive rule of the romans, particularly nero, whose name, when translated into the numerology techniques from then, is triple six.

    but it wouldn't take a numerologist to figure out that dog's show would have been canceled due to some self-afflicted trouble, sooner or later. maybe someday i'll be able to share with you a couple stories about hybrid films, the company that produces "dog the bounty hunter." i'll just say that the producers didn't exactly leave me with a favorable impression. neither did their lawyers. *smirk*
    Wow, what a "public" rant that was. And over a misunderstanding too.
    If I counted right, you just put down 4 different groups of people, albeit not racially based distinctions.
    Sheesh. I think your pedestal is cracking...

    I haven't read the entire thread, so I apologize in advance if this has already been expressed.

    I can't help but think that the gist of his conversation centered on his belief that there are black people.......and then there are ni**ers. Kind of like the whole white people / white trash thing. So while Dog may have no harsh feelings towards normal black people, he may have some animosity towards the more thuggish/ghetto types.

    Hmmm...you bring up an interesting point, LL. Would the show have been suspended had Dog been ranting about a white girlfriend and using the term "white trash" or even "f***ing haole" instead of the n-bomb? Or would those 2 terms be acceptable coming from someone caucasian even if spewed in anger?

    There you go tutusue. Perfect.
    I've heard the second term used and it definitely was meant badly.

    I think humanity on a whole is getting less racist than previous times,
    but there's still a lot of it. And it can be from any race towards any race.
    Also Dog wasn't on national television at the time, although it ended up there.

    Considering that Dog has 10 children from five different women, perhaps the payout from the Enquirer was looking more attractive.

    I try to resist judging people as is often my want. That said it is difficult for me to embrace the idea that someone can be basically a "good" person while using racial epithets in private. We reveal ourselves in our speech whether in public or private. One can still be reprehensible while showing manners in public. For me the term PC is really about showing sensitivity and compassion. Sympathy if not empathy. The "bad" name the term has gotten seems to be coming mostly from people who jealously guard their prejudices like they're some measure of their personal freedom. If Dog is like-minded he deserves what he gets for showcasing himself as a champion of righteousness. Guess who's coming to dinner?

    It seems that self-deprecation is acceptable in most contexts. Disparaging the group one belongs to rarely carries the sting that comes naturally with outside criticism or judgement. Not very uplifting for the group but usually taken less gravely and often as humor.

    Maybe that's what the kid did, go a form of postal.

    Think about it....if the term was used regularly in his father's house who by his own statement didn't approve of the girlfriend, ya kind of have to think it was used fairly regularly to refer to the girlfriend.

    If you loved the girl and had been with her for 7 months (hey some folks get married in shorter time frames) how long do you think it'd take to blow your stack and take your father up on his 'suggestion' when he gives you the ultimatum of give her up (in the nastiest way possible) or get out? A 'don't worry about her...but it's the last straw for me and ya just pooched it for yourself' emotional scattergun reaction.

    I still have to think that it was a regular term used in conversation when talking about the girlfriend for the son to be able to get the tape done.

    Actually I was asking if anyone thought the show would be suspended had the caucasion epithets been used.

    Thanks for your input tho'. I agree with it.

    Wouldn't that have been a pot/kettle situation? In any case since Dog is haole/white trash I doubt it. Unless there's some group looking out
    for negative stereotypes of crackers on TV. Shameful the way they depict "trailer trash", I mean "poor white folks" on Cops.

    I'd be more curious to know if Dog's got other gems to refer to locals.

    Dog's on Fox News right now...

    I'm such a sucker... he's in tears and I believe that he is truly sorry and has learned his lesson... I know, I should never, NEVER serve on jury duty coz I'm such a sucker for a show of emotion!

    I clicked on the National Enquirer site just because I felt like I should hear the tape to form my own opinion but I just feel dirty now... I'm off to have a shower just for going to that website!!

    Maybe no worse but, while you might not agree, in whose mouth can make a big difference. It's possible that Dog's "baggage" pre-dates his arrival in Hawaii and therefore he might not use unflattering shorthand terms for his present neighbors.

    Dog's baggage includes a conviction for accessory to the murder of one Jerry Lee Oliver, a black man, in Texas circa 1976.

    I'd rather see his show suspended because it's well .... awful. I've been watching it to try to catch recent street scenes in Hawaii, just because I miss the place. And I can't see the people/streets/beach/trees/etc because there are all these fat trashy people in the way! I feel sorry for the people Dog rounds up - they must feel ashamed being seen with him.

    That being said, it's amazing that something he says in private can get him in trouble like this, especially when tons of people use the N-word. That word is in literature, in history, in music, people use it talking to each other on the street, etc. I wonder if Dog had been in Florida or Texas if this would be an issue. Or if the girl had been haole so he'd say "f-in haole" or "white trash" or something? I guess that would have been OK.

    Dog, you're really stupid to use that word, but your life is a soap opera anyway. And with 10 children and perhaps more in his future, in the eyes of Nature he's more successful than most of us.

    thank the lord. if you had been, you certainly went a sad way about it.

    you'll want rethink writing future statements that practically beg the question, as you did here:

    on 102.7 this morning, the morning bomb guys said dog appeared on hannity colmes (that bastion of fair and balanced reporting!) and cried practically the whole time. they played snippets of the interview, including one where dog claimed to have been completely ignorant, prior to his convo being released to the enquirer, that the word n*er was "like a stab in the heart" to black people or something like that.

    correct me if i'm wrong, but doesn't what he say to tucker in the recorded message tell us that, contrary to his claim of ignorance, he understood quite well what that word meant, how that word is received by americans-at-large, and most clearly, how a recording of him using that word would adversely affect on his career and the well-being of his babies?

    he didn't know what that word meant. if that isn't a crock of uffkury...

    Better yet, when he made his initial statement about it (to paraphrase) not being about her blackness but her character.

    Then it turns out, from his own mouth, he's never spoke to her or even knew what she looked like.

    You know, sometimes i wonder why hasn't any crazy shot Dog yet?

    Maybe it is because he is the star of the show, and the star only gets shot during the season finally!
