Join the debate on Dog The Bounty Hunter...Legend or Lame?
Earlier this year I tackled the all important issue of whether or not Dog, The Bounty Hunter could be considered legend or lame. It was a difficult topic, and I think we all learned a lot from it. Dog has found his way back into the news however, this time for use of the dreaded "N" word. In case you're not familiar with this politically correct expression of an old racial slur, go look up some of your racist friends and ask them what they think of affirmative action, and you should figure it out fairly quickly. If you're not from the USA, listen to some Gangsta rap, that will set you straight.
Yes, our beloved Dog, he of the incredible Aryan mullet, was caught on tape bemoaning to his son the fact that some people around him used the N word, and that he wasn't going to lose all he had worked for for thirty years because of some drunken 'N word'. The actual quote went something like this:
"I'm not taking a chance...not because she's black but because we use the word n---er sometimes here. I'm not going to take any chance ever in life of losing everything I've worked for 30 years because some drunken n---er heard us say n---er and turned us into the Enquirer magazine...I'm not taking that chance at all never in life. Never..."
Ironically, The National Enquirer was exactly the place that his son decided to sell the tape to. You see, the son in questioned happens to have a girlfriend who is of African American descent, as well as a pretty decently sized chip on his shoulder when it comes to Daddy, it would seem.
A&E, the producers of the show 'Dog, The Bounty Hunter' immediately stopped production of the show pending an investigation, and whether or not Dog returns to the air is still very much up in the air. The Reverend Al Sharpton has been called upon by Dog to help him out of this mess, and in exchange for the Dog's presence at a march or two, might put in a good word for him.
It's all very sad really, after all, who among us has not heard one of our ridiculous relatives spouting off rubbish in the privacy of their own home. The things that people say when they don't think anyone who matters would be enough to spur a million protest marches. So here we are faced with a question. Should a man's racist comments to his own family be enough to end his livelihood? Should we all be doomed to repeats of Dog The Bounty Hunter because one snotty nosed kid decided to cash in and screw Daddy over at the same time? Or should Dog be punished verily for his shameful intolerant behavior?
