here's excerpts of the Lumbee Tribal Chairman's press release (available in its entirety at this site):
"The Tribal Chairman of the Lumbee Tribe of North Carolina issues a call to Lumbee tribal members through out the country to call and demand the termination of Bob Dumas, Mike Morse, and Kentucky Kristin, with G105 radio station in Raleigh. The call comes after derogatory comments were made on the radio station with the “Bob and Showgram” program on Tuesday, April 1, 2008.
“This is unbelievable. To have a radio station that can continue to broadcast such garbage, and in the state capitol; Raleigh” states Tribal Chairman, Jimmy Goins. “I expect more out of the citizens of Raleigh and would expect this type of ignorance to be dealt with by our state leaders.”The controversial statements such as, “Indians are lazy…,” “Lumbees are in-bred…,” and references to Pocahontas as “Poca-Ho-tas” and Sacajawea as “Sacacooter” are slanderous and insulting to all American Indians, as well as the descendants and families of these two great historic American Indian women. The dialogue referring to a “teepee warming party” demonstrates that these individuals have no knowledge of Lumbee culture or that of other American Indian tribes and cultures in North Carolina. “If G105 will not terminate Dumas, then I will call on Lumbee tribal members to go further with the protest and boycott their advertisers” state Chairman Goins. “We’ll go after their pocket books; they issued a statement that says they do not condone inappropriate behavior, language or insensitive remarks- well that’s a lie-unless they fire them today-because this is a pattern, and if you don’t deal with a pattern-well then you do condone the remarks.” [...]
The show defensively asked the Tribal Chairman and the executive director of the NC Commission of Indian Affairs to appear on the “Showgram” to educate them on American Indians. [...] “Don’t call me now, just so you can now make it look like you’re concerned or sensitive.”The Tribal Chairman is also asking for tribal members to visit the tribal website: www.lumbeetribe.com and download a letter and sign it to send to the Federal Communications Commission (FCC)."
