Midwest Radio Harassing Asian Americans

On June 20th, the Toledo Blade finally paid attention to the situation brewing down in Toledo, Ohio where a DJ was making a racist ass of himself. The Toledo Blade Article gives you the basics. I've got an op-ed posted over at Asian American Press that covers some of my feelings on the matter. But I hope others will see the importance of speaking out against this kind of harassment. It shouldn't be tolerated anywhere.

Good going, Bryan! No, it shouldn't be tolerated anywhere on any medium.

On a side note: When I found out that Troi Torrain was one of the singers of that hideous tsunami song, I couldn't believe it. He'd been fired by Hot 97 then hired by another station where he threatened the other dj's under-age daughter. I keep wondering where he's going to pop up next.
