Hot on the heels of the Star and Buc Wild show comes another radio gem. One of the top radio stations in NY (HOT 97) is playing a skit, calling tsunami victims screaming ch**nks.” From a forward:

For the last week Hot 97 has been running a hideously unfunny and offensive skit named the Tsunami Song,” It’s being played on the station’s morning show, hosted by Miss Jones, who has had serious run ins because of her racism (one in the news concerning the game, Ghettopoly) and has never been fined.

Here are some choice lyrics sung to We Are the World”:

..All at once you could hear the screaming ch*nks and no one was safe from the wave there were africans drowning, little chinamen swept away you could hear God laughing,”swim you b*tches swim” So now you’re screwed, it’s the Tsunami you better run or kiss your ass away, go find your mommy I just saw her float by, a tree went through her head and now the children will be sold to child slavery…”

But so far Hot 97 hasn’t acknowledged that there’s anything wrong with it, and they continue to air it everyday.

Is the FCC listening, or do they still have their nose buried in Janet Jackson’s nipple? Their website does not have a section for complaints that have to do with hate speech, indecency and bad language is all that they care about.
