Re: Airing of Tsunami Song on Miss Jones in the Morning Show

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

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

Therefore, we make the following requests of your station:

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

2) The station to offer public apology on the radio, and promises that such a blatantly racist and insensitive act will never happen again.

3) The staff of the station will be required to meet with immigrant community and victims of the tsunami in order to establish a community dialogue for racism and cultural awareness.
We hope the station will do it the right way this time, or we will resort to further action in the future.
