Asian Community under attack by "Hip Hop & Rap" (again), this time in NY

Can you belive this crap!?!

Top NY Radio Station Makes Mockery of Tsunami Victims, Asians
01-25-05
By FD with excerpts from John Mainelli of the New York Post

When a catastrophe like that of the deadly tsunamis occurs, we expect the world to come together in unity. Regardless of where in the world an event like that of the Southeast Asia tsunami's happened, where over 225,000 are confirmed dead, it's hard to imagine anyone making a mockery of it.

Hot 97, New York's top hip hop station, is currently under fire after airing a song that pokes fun at Asians and the victims. Excerpts from the song include "screaming chinks" and "little Chinamen swept away".


Hot 97's web site promoting the "Tsunami Song"
Yonkers-based Asian Media Watch accuses the WQHT/Hot 97 "Miss Jones in the Morning" show of "repeated racist attitudes" and demands the program's "elimination."

"The host broadcasts a horrifying song that mocks the dead South Asian tsunami victims, uses the racial slurs 'chinks' and 'Chinamen'." said AMW director Kai Yu in a letter to Hot 97's John Dimick.

Station-owner Emmis Communications issued an apology late yesterday.

"We apologize to our listeners and to anyone who was offended," Dimick said. "[The show's entire seven-person staff] has agreed to contribute one-week's pay to the tsunami-relief efforts."

In a show of unity, not only from Asian Americans who are deeply offended, but all listeners across the country are being asked to sign an online petition for a stronger penalty for the hosts of the show.

We ask all of the public to give the song a listen and judge for yourself whether there should be a stronger penalty towards those involved with the broadcasting of this song. This should not happen again.

They all got fired. How is you referring to them as "Rapping monkeys" any less racist?

Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.

-President Barack Obama, 1st Inaugural address

"’screaming chinks" and "little Chinamen swept away’".


I don’t know which is worse: their ignorance or their racism.

Why are Asians so sensitive?

I guess I don't understand. You're offended by what was broadcast, but want the public (I'm assuming EVERYONE) to listen to it, so they can "judge for themselves"? You don't think a lot of them will just laugh?

I say get over it already.

would this be your opinion if the derrogatory rap had been about any other race? perhaps the plight of my fore fathers in the Cherokee nation? or maybe my wife's family which was gathered together after the pearl harbor attack and put into camps for "security puposes"? or maybe the innocent lives lost in the civil rights movement? I suppose they all should get over it already?

Yes, I would say to all of them get over it already. Last time I checked we were all living in the here and now.

This guy man-du whatever is saying, in essence "I don't like what so and so said about us, so I want everyone to hear what so and so said about us." If he wants everyone to hear people making fun of Asians, I would tell hime he can't have it both ways.

If you want to give people like that attention, (the radio station people) then YES, by all means, put up a website, ask the whole world to sign your petition, and YES, ask everyone to listen to what was so offensive in the first place!


Wouldn't it be better to just move on? The people got fired, what more does this guy want, executions?

One more thing, this guy is saying the hip-hop/rap community (as if, come on, it was a FEW people for God's sake) attacked the Asian community AGAIN? I guess I missed the first time. It wasn't publicized enough I suppose.
