Howard Stern's nastier than nasty. He's on TV, no less. What he offers is truly much worse than an "accidental" breast exposal, and he prevails night, after night, after night. He's perverted to me, but money talks..... I have no time for TV. Highly enjoyed the documentary on Beah Richards though. It was glorious to watch. What a woman!! A glorious African Woman!!!

In dropping Stern from its six radio outlets that carry his show, Clear Channel (nyse: CCU - news - people) cited his interview on Tuesday with Rick Salomon, the man who was filmed having sex with hotel heiress and TV reality star Paris Hilton in a video widely distributed on Internet porn sites.

According to a transcript of the show released by San Antonio, Texas-based Clear Channel, Stern asked Salomon if he engaged in anal sex and referred to the size of his penis. Using a racist term, a caller to the show asked Solomon if he had ever had sex with any famous black women.

The action against Stern came a day after Clear Channel fired Florida radio personality "Bubba the Love Sponge," after federal regulators accused him of airing sexually graphic material on Tampa's WXTB-FM and three other Florida stations.

The company said Stern's suspension from its stations came after a review of his Tuesday broadcast.

"Clear Channel drew a line in the sand today with regard to protecting our listeners from indecent content, and Howard Stern's show blew right through it," Hogan said.

"It was vulgar, offensive and insulting, not just to women and African-Americans but to anyone with a sense of common decency."

The statement did not outline what parts of Stern's show ran afoul of the policy or how long the suspension might last.

They were talking to that guy who was in the sex video tape with Paris Hilton; why were African Americans/Black Americanf even a part of the discussion? Do any of you watch this cable program called 'Tough Crowd', with Colin Quinn. It is supposed to be an politically incorrect show that takes a look at everything in society, that people are cautious about.

Well, invariably, the conversations ALWAYS turns to insults and discussion on Black people. They usually have one or two Black comedians, and they take all kinds of insults from the White/Hispanic comedians about Black people. It's lilke society cannot get along without including Black people in some communicative rebuke, even when we are not an essential element in the disucssion.

Oh look, the grass is growing; well, we'd better cut it or some Black crack head will try to smoke it; or, is their another Black hole developing in space, do'nt let Black people know about it, or they tear it up. I hate to sound paranoid, or over-sensitive, but damn, why were Black folk even in that conversation about Paris Hilton?
Howard Stern is discusting. I quickly saw him for what he is: an insult, racist, sexist disjock. I cannot believe that people still watch or listen to his lower based, supposed comedy.

This is actually how a lot of Black Americans are catipulting their comedy or political careers as well, by seizing the opportunity of a public forum to "put the word out" that they are willing to stoop that low to suceed, knowing all the time that it will get them booked on a lot of shows (like the Colin Quinn show, etc., are be the signal the draw "neo-cons" that may be able to put them on a token pedistal, in their direction.
I have seen the Colin Quinn show, although only a few times, because that is all it took for me to see exactly where he was really coming from and what his and his guests true agenda was. Colin Quinn (who desparately needs to learn how to speak) and the majority of the other bigots that he has on his show are just prime examples of the Northern Racist---the northern equivalent to the Southern Redneck Racist.
P.S.:
What's really funny about shows and people like this is that it is often Jew, Italians, and now Hispanics that often are now very egar to do this---people who, (as I have mentioned before), when I was a child were not even considered white----or all white----especially in the south---if an Italian had come down south before the civil rights movement, he/she would have had to sit on the back of the bus too; the same with Hispanics; and Jews had to just hid who they really were.

How soon we forget. We all soon forget.
true agenda was. Colin Quinn (who desparately needs to learn how to speak) and the majority of the other bigots that he has on his show are just prime examples of the Northern Racist---the northern equivalent to the Southern Redneck Racist.

Riddle me this:
What is the difference between a Northern Racist, and, an Southern Racist?

answer: Not a go---dayum thing; except maybe the trees in the south for 'growing' strange fruit.
This is the transcript that got Mr. Stern yanked off the airwaves (for now)...

What kills me is that Clear Channel had opportunity to have Howard verbally clean up his act, ESPECIALLY after the Jackson/Timberlake stunt at the SuperBowl.

I give another "Guilty as Charged" award to the FCC for the deregulations that have allowed Mr. Stern to spit out such garbage OVER THE YEARS!!

Howard Stern Show - February 24, 2004 (7:45am-8:15am EST)

Stern: "Paris Hilton, she banged you good and gave you great oral...I'm not showing anyone my penis."

Stern: "Did you bang Paris Hilton the first night?"

Rick Solomon: "All my dates, I probably get them the first night."

Stern: "Shannon Daugherty, you banged her."

Stern: "You are a cocks-man."

Stern: "I can't believe you banged her. Did you get anal? No anal? I need anal tapes. Anal tapes are my thing. I need anal tapes."

Robin Quivers: "She [Paris] didn't know how to work it."

Stern: "She likes orgasms. I'd like to bang her."

Robin: "I think we're getting too into the locker room [talk]."

Solomon: "The anal game..."

Caller: "We want to smell your fingers [because of where you had your fingers in the Hilton tape]."

Caller: "Ever bang a famous nigger chick? What do they smell like? Watermelons?"

Stern: "Drew Barrymore, how old were you when you banged her?"

Solomon: "I was 20 and Drew was 15. She was emancipated. Drew's virginity was long gone by 15."

Stern: "Did you do the Olsen twins?"

Solomon: "I usually find one girl I like to sleep with and stay with her. The girl I'm with right now is married and famous."

Stern: "It would be great if that woman is Laura Bush, the President's wife."

Stern: "How about Paris Hilton's privates?"

Solomon: "She's got the greatest privates in the world."

Stern: "Rick Solomon, he's the guy with the big schlong."

Do we really want the government dictating media content? Sure, Stern's a jerk. Just don't listen to him then. It offends my sensibilities to have Michael Powell (FCC Chair) dictating what can or cannot go over the air. Frankly, what Stern is being suspended for is FAR less offensive than much of the violence and just over-all junk that passes over the air every day.
Why are Black Americans identified with watermelons, and fried chicken, when just about everyone enjoys these two foods? Does anyone know what the historical significance is? And, again I ask, why would Black Americans, in particular, Black women even have needed to be an aspect of this 'discussion'? This kind of BS, keeps the Black American community, in a perpetual state of ridicule. I'm exhausted.

On the other side of this discussion, is the first amendment being violeted here? Clearly, that discussion was typical of the Howard Sternesque type of commentary on things of a sexual nature, but the censorship aspect is troubling.
The following is not inherently 'racist', in and of itself; but, it promotes an image that had absolutely nothing whatsoever to do with 'us'. ok, so I'm overly sensitive; but, with all of the negative imagery (both verbal and non-verbal) that is part of racism in the U.S, this annoys me to no end. And, again, the implied use of Black American women for a joke.

The following ad actually ran in The Atlanta Journal.

SINGLE BLACK FEMALE seeks male companionship, race unimportant. I'm a very good-looking girl who LOVES to play, take long walks in the woods,
hunting, camping, fishing trips, and cozy winter nights by the fire. Really like a man with a pickup truck. A candlelight dinner will have me
eating out of your hand. I'll be at the front door when you get home from work, wearing only what nature gave me. Rub me the right way and watch me respond. Kiss me and I'm yours.
Call (404) 875-6420 and ask for Daisy.

Over 15,000 men found themselves talking to the Atlanta Humane Society about an 8-week old black Labrador retriever. Men are so easy.

As far as the Howard Stern comments, the question really is, why would Black women need to be referred to as "nigger chicks," instead of merely Black or African American women.

Now the watermelon/fried chicken stero-type comes from a mixture of the south originally being the largest producers of watermelons and originally the majority of pickers were Blacks . . . and people normally eat whatever they grow; although, I can only see racist stereo-typing being the root cause of it being associated with Blacks only, when in truth, the stero-type should be on all southerners, since watermelon was a very common southern summer-time frui (vegetable) that most southerners enjoyed, whether Black or White----like oranges in California or Florida. Also, the fried chicken stero-type is the same---fried chicken is original to southern cooking and is something that all southerners cook and/or eat.
Actually, I see that a lot of stero-types of Blacks are or were originally really southern and not just Black; for example, the watermelon, fried chicken eating . . . also, the so-called "Black dialect" is really southern dialect, and "soul food" is really southern food (eaten by all southerners regardless of race)---down south, white people eat just as much turnip greens, cornbread, maccaroni and cheese, yams, watermelon and fried chicken as black people do.

Note: Beau is from Mauldin, South Carolina and she is not 16 years old; isn't it funny what people will do for money; isn't it funny how much of the entire African American race's dignity a Black American is willing to sacrifice for a few dollars.
Even though I have never cared for Howard Stern, (primarily over the way he treats women, and has blatantly discussed his sexual activities over the airwaves), I do think that there should be restrictions on HOW you express various views, not WHAT you say. We can still have fun now...but the media needs to start expressing their views in a more unbiased and constructive manner. Unfortunately the majority of disc jockeys have abused the true power of the microphone.
