Minneapolis Radio Station Mocks Hmong People

Earlier this week, the Dave Ryan in the Morning Show on KDWB 101.3 FM station in Minneapolis created a racist song about Hmong people using the tunes of Eric Clapton’s “Tears in Heaven.”

Honestly, when something this ridiculous pops up, radio stations like KDWB 101.3 are only doing it for ratings. They don’t care about how mad we get or what we say. We have to hit them where it hurts the most: their sponsors. We have to make it clear that we don’t support outrageously racist things like this song. We have to provide support in numbers and tell this radio station’s sponsors to stop giving them the greens. If ANY difference is to be made, especially when it comes to racism, you follow the money and then strangle the living daylights out of it.

Here’s where I’m going to be honest with all of you…I have no idea who the sponsors are. After two hours of combing through the web, I have faint trails of who these sponsors are and only because there are so many of them. The only thing I can really say is to brush this dirt off your shoulders and move on. There are far bigger battles to fight than to get riled up over a stupid radio station singing about a racist song while butchering a classic at the same time.
