Racist Radio: How low can New York hip hop radio station Hot 97 go? Much lower than its Whitney Houston slam "Is it Whitney or a tsunami victim?" According to HipHopMusic.com, the station has produced a racist song about the tsunami victims (link to the mp3 is down at the moment). Some lyrics:
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...
Not to get preachy, but Hot 97, like all radio stations, is here to serve the public interest. It's what the station agreed to when it signed on for its (free) license to use the publicly owned airwaves. If you disagree with how they're serving our interest let them and the FCC know.

Write, call or email the station:
395 Hudson St. 7th Floor
New York, NY 10014

(212) 229-9797

File a complaint with the FCC.
