Toledo DJ Apologizes

The Toledo Blade reported that DJ Lucas in Toledo has apologized on-air for his harrassment of Asian American businesses, and that the station's program manager, Brent Carey, had been let go.

We can only hope this sends a clear message to other radio stations that racism, intolerance and the harassment of Americans on the basis of their ethnicity is inexcusable and has no place in civil discourse.

I hope it also sends a message to other Asian American communities across the country that change IS possible, and that we must be committed to speaking out against injustice and prejudice.

Absolutely. So long, Carey.
