National Immigrant Solidarity Network had been deeply outraged by a recent radio broad cast by New York City HOT 97's "Miss Jones in the Morning Show" ran a racist song call Tsunami Song that ridicules the victims of the Tsunami as "ch*nks" whose children will now be sold into child slavery.

 

Below is a link to the mp3 for you to listen for yourself:

This is a racist and sexist song, their actions had been deeply disrespect at least 225,000 people who died from the tragedy.

 

CONTACT HOT 97 NOW! Demand that Miss Jones and all others involved in the creation of the Tsunami Song be fired. Let them know that racial epithets and mockery of a tragedy will not be tolerated.

In addition, we are calling the activists and peace loving people from different ethnic background and across the country, to co-sign a letter of protest to the HOT 97, and hold a rally at the first week of February to deliver at their station on New York City (detail will be announce soon).

1) Not for the Light Hearted--HOT 97's Miss Jones & Tsunami Victims (NAASCON)

From: naascon_news@yahoo.com
January 22, 2005

 

For the last week, HOT 97's Miss Jones in the Morning Show has been running a culturally insensitive and degrading skit for the last week called the Tsunami Song

that ridicules the victims of the Tsunami as "ch*nks" whose children will now be sold into child slavery.

 

Below is an excerpt from the skit:

WARNING: CONTAINS EXPLICIT LANGUAGE

There was a time when the sun was shining bright
So I went down to the beach to catch me a tan
Then the next thing I knew, a wave twenty feet high
Came and washed your country away

And 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 your children will be sold to child slavery (2X)


In an attempt to minimize public outcry and escape unscathed, HOT 97 has already disabled the link to the Tsunami Song. However, below is a link to the mp3 for you to listen for yourself:

http://www.thesilent1.com/longer_hot97_tsunami.mp3

 



Although HOT 97 has recently issued a formal apology, it does not reflect the atrocious nature of their act:


2) OFFICIAL STATEMENT ON AIRING OF TSUNAMI PARODY SONG
January 21, 2005

HOT 97 regrets the airing of material that made light of a serious and tragic event. We apologize to our listeners and anyone who was offended.

HOT97 takes pride in its community involvement and in the last few weeks has joined with broadcasters nationwide to raise money for victims of the Tsunami. Our relief effort will result in a substantial cash donation.

As an additional sign of HOT 97’s commitment to the cause, Miss Jones in the Morning, along with her entire staff, have agreed to contribute one week’s pay to Tsunami Relief efforts.

Re: Airing of Tsunami song at Miss Jones in the Morning Show

We had been deeply outraged by a recent radio broad cast by New York City HOT 97's "Miss Jones in the Morning Show" ran a racist song call Tsunami Song that ridicules the victims of the Tsunami as "ch*nks" whose children will now be sold into child slavery.

Their actions had been deeply disrespect the people of Asia, and at least 225,000 people who died from the tragedy.

Therefore, we ask your station:

1) Remove Miss Jones and all others involved in the creation of the Tsunami Song from the show.

2) The station will offer public apology on the radio.

3) The staffs of the station will require to meet with immigrant community and victims of the tsunami, a community dialogue for racism and cultural awareness.

We hope the station will do it the right way this time, or we will reserve a further action at the future.
