The story behind The Dog Story
Okay, we all know about the whole Duane ‘Dog’ Chapman racial slur scandal. I wanted to know how the hell did this phone conversation get out to the public. Well, we now know, he freaking son recorded it and sold it.
((Television bounty hunter Duane "Dog" Chapman's son taped a private phone conversation in which the reality star used a racial slur repeatedly, then sold it to a tabloid for "a lot of money," Chapman's lawyer said Thursday.))
So, this was a way to get back at his father. What did Chapman do to this kid to make him go to great lengths to embarrass him? This could possible ruin his career, as it is.
((A&E has suspended production of the series, saying the network takes the matter seriously.))
Now, we just need to get rid of the rest of the reality shows stinking up the channels.
Okay, so Dog apologized. My only problem with that is this.
(("I have never seen anything that suggests he judges people by the color of their skin or racial background or anything but on their character," he said. "Duane lost his composure and made very, very inappropriate remarks, for which he truly regrets."))
I can safely say, even in a fit of rage, I’ve never used a racial slur when someone pissed me off. I’ve pretty much called them everything else in the book. I simply don’t think that way.
Why was he really upset with his son dating a woman of color? You had a problem with your son dating a person of color, so admit. I’ve seen countless people say that they don’t like seeing mixed couples and it is usually older people. Young people generally don’t have a problem with this. Older people have to realize the world around them is changing and younger people don’t have the same hang ups as the older generations.
I certainly don’t. I’d date pretty much anyone of any race or any religion as along as they respected. (At this point, my standards in dating are pretty low, I’d date a dwarf.) Then again, I was brought up not to prejudge people by their race. (Now, hairstyles and clothing are a different story). Remember, it’s the way someone acts and treats others that is important.
Okay, I am off my soapbox.
