LATINO RADIO SHOW OFFERS PRIZE TO FIRST ILLEGAL ALIEN TO HAVE LOU DOBBS BABY
Los Angeles, California, April 26, 2006 Los Angeles' top rated English language Latino radio talk show, The Pocho Hour of Power on KPFK 90.7 FM, Fridays at 4pm, has made an unprecedented financial offer to so-called "illegal immigrants". In the interest of racial harmony and assimilation of immigrants into U.S. culture, the co-hosts of the Pocho Hour of Power make this offer: The first undocumented immigrant to name their U.S. born child "Lou Dobbs," before September 16th, 2006, will win 0.00 worth of baby nursery items from participating East Los Angeles merchants supporting the Name Your Baby Lou Dobbs Challenge.
It is the Pocho Hour of Power's contention that today's modern immigrant is assimilation minded and generally eager to please. Today's undocumented immigrant is the uninformed American of tomorrow. Americans have a great tradition of naming their offspring after public figures, like John Wayne, Ronald Reagan and Archie Bunker. What could be more patriotic than naming your baby after a beloved American bigot? Immigrants are not a threat to this great nation, they are industrious, ambitious and, at times, just as confused, inarticulate and one-sided on the immigration issue as Lou Dobbs himself.
CNN's puffy pundit Lou Dobbs is the largest anti-immigrant critic on the horizon, and casts a huge, rotund shadow over the media's discussion of immigration. Scapegoating minorities is an American tradition and a patriotic duty; just ask the patriots that tossed all that tea into Boston Harbor.
Other acceptable nicknames for "Lou Dobbs" in the Name Your Baby Lou Dobbs Challenge are, Potato Head, Beaner Town Boogie Man and Y.T. Bashaspick.
Winners must claim their prize live on the air, on the Pocho Hour of Power, Fridays at 4pm on L.A.'s KPFK, 90.7 FM, and present an official U.S. birth certificate with approved name(s), baby in question and notarized proof of illegal status. Baby must be born between 4-28-2006 and 9-16-2006. Those of generous spirit, wishing to contribute to the bounty to be awarded to Baby Lou Dobbs, may do so by logging on to the "Baby Lou Dobbs" Baby Registry at babiesrus.com. The registry number is 97882776 or you can search the site for first name: "Baby Lou" last name: "Dobbs".
In the event that there is not a winner in the Name Your Baby Lou Dobbs Challenge, all prizes including any donations in the baby registry will go to a charity, to be named at a later date that benefits immigrants and their families.
