Dog the Bounty Hunter and Black America: Dog Update
A nice article from Bloggers New Network about Black America: Does it forgive Dog the Bounty Hunter? The story below speculates that they do, based on the response from Dog's black fans.
We got one such letter yesterday at DBKP. It's after the story below.
From psburton at BNN:
A majority of African Americans who saw Duane Chapman’s interview on Larry King express a willingness to forgive dog the bounty hunter provided his remorse and humility was genuine. I made a point of asking one of my neighbors who is black to watch the show so I could solicit his opinion. ”Mostly I would say its his upbringing that caused him the trouble” my friend remarked. I asked if he felt it would be appropriate for A&E to give him his job back. “Yea and he should spend some of the salary they pay him on adult education”. ”The thing is, Not so much what the “Dog” was saying” ”It’s a black minister willing to come on National t.V.’ and say now look here brothers and sisters, I am this mans spiritual leader and while he may need counseling on the use of profanity and slurs he is not a racist and I am also telling you he is a believing Christian and a friend of mine”
The king interview revealed a man who confirmed my previous opinion its not so much an issue of racism with the Dog as it is a lack of education and impulse control. Some cash spent on a few verbal advantage tapes and anger management courses would be a good step toward achieving his stated desire to become something other then where he came from.
I speculate many African Americans would object and loudly if A&E or another network decides to return the Dog to America’s living room. But the final decision comes down to dollars and cents. Dog has lots of fans and those fans some of who are black are the ones who ultimately decide what sells and what does not.

We received this email yesterday. We thought the writer made some good points.
I want to send you an e-mail to let you know that I and my non-white family are behind the Dog! He said nothing but an exagerated swear word for what the "duo" must have already done before this incident...
Not only that the conversation very private, but also made public by people that you must doubt integrity and motives; how did they get Dog talking like that despite of his "one of the boys" attitude even with criminals...???? Like my grandson may say,"are you nuts?"
Said Damon Wayans at the "View," "Black folks sitting it out laughing, just watching,, while whites cry out 'foul', 'foul' and have the sense of what?... conscience? " Let's ruin someone today?"
Ruin then anyone who say the word, white or black, grey or yellow...whatever race, rather than hulk in the shadows, wait. then wait for judas and girlfriend with 30 pieces of silver to buy a private conversation. Guess what? Enquirer do not have any ethics, but they showed Dog's son and his girlfriend to be the bad guys here... They must have known the common swear word in the prison, in the house, in Dog's experience, and they entrapped Dog to say it. Wake up everyone, punish the real culprit. Dog takes care of his family; his son and girlfriend want to destroy the family and its livelihood.
Never met Dog except in his tv show that I watch regularly, but I feel for him and the rest of his family...
WE are behind Dog,
Nice letter and story.
