Star & Buc Wild: Racist on the Radio

Moorish Girl posts to this item from Turbanhead. Apparently, the wakeup crew at Philadelphia's Power 99 radio think that it's absolutely hilarious to call a customer service line outsourced to India and berate an employee with sexist and racist banter.

The MP3 has been removed from the Power 99 site, but, in the event that Turbanhead's servers get overloaded on this, I've mirrored the file here and I urge anyone who cares to host the file too. For those who can't play audio at work, here's a transcript:

NARRATOR INTRO: Wakeup with Star and Buc Wild in the mornings of Power 99 FM.

STAR: I'm going to play this call from earlier before we get out of here. This is the, uh, call that I made to -- I thought it was a company here locally. Not that I was surprised.


STAR: I saw this infomercial about, uh, what are these things called again? Oh, the, uh...

FEMALE VOICE: Bead? Oh shoot.

STAR: Anyway, let -- let's just play the call. I was surprised when I got somebody on the line in East India. These little beads that I saw. Little white kids, uh, a little machine that puts them in their hair.


STAR: Play it.

(tape begins)

STEENA: This is Steena. How may I help you?

STAR: Hi, Stain-a, you say?


STAR: (in fake Indian accent) Yeah, I called and I just got hung up on. I'm calling from America about the quick beads for my daughter's, uh, hair. Quick beads.

STEEA: Okay. May I have your ZIP code please?

STAR: 10274.

STEENA: 10274?

STAR: Yes. Get it right. Now are you in India? Because I just spoke to someone in India who hung up on me.

STEENA: Thank you. I am from India, ma'am.

STAR: Okay. So my call is being outsourced to India.

STEENA: That's right.

STAR: In... in regards to my six year old, white American daughter who wants to get the quick beads like Serena and Venus Williams.

STEENA: Now. I'll definitely place an order for that. See...

STAR: What's that?

STEENA: ...in the ad, she called to place a quick bead of counier. To ensure proper handling...

STAR: Ma'am, I don't know what the hell you're saying. Hang on a second. Let me try and get something straight here. The quick beads, like Venus and Serena Williams, that to advertise to -- to the white kids on television. This call has been outsourced to India?

STEENA: That's right.

STAR: Well, ma'am, what the eff would you know about an American white girl's -- uh, uh -- hair? And quick beads.

STEENA: Just to inform you, ma'am, we're a national chain services company. And we're just taking calls on the opposite...

STAR: Listen, bitch! Don't get slick with the mouth! Don't you get slick with me, bitch!

STEENA: Now if you continue to speak this language, I will disconnect the call.

STAR: Listen to me, you dirty rat eater. I'll come out there and choke the eff out of you.


STAR: You're a filthy rat eater. I'm calling about my American six year old white girl. How dare you outsource my call? Get off the line, bitch!

(laughter; end of tape)

STAR: Pull it up.


STAR: Heard they listen well out there.

The call letters of Power 99 are WUSL. It shouldn't be too much of a surprise to learn that the station is owned by Clear Channel. In light of the station's Stop the Violence and Increase the Peace campaign, it might be worth addressing this verbal violence to the WUSL manager and to Clear Channel Corporate. Letters written on actual paper or faxes are the best way to deal with this. Emails can be overlooked, but paper is a physical presence. You can find addresses and fax numbers right here:

General Business Line: 215-483-8900
Fax: 215-483-5930

Ron has pointed out that DJs Star and Buc Wild have been added to WWPR-FM (Power 105.1) in New York (also a Clear Channel radio station). Clear Channel has apparently invested $17 million to sign Star and Buc Wild to the morning lineup. In addition to WUSL, Star can currently be found on Hartford's WPHH station.

Star apparently has a history of savage radio behavior. In fact, he prides himself on being "the Hater" and his website notes that "he has the audacity to be unconstrained by neo-conservative intellectual influence." The exclusive Star interview further notes, "Hate is one of the truest natures of mankind. We'll always have Hate, even when we branch into outer space and set up new civilizations. To eradicate hate would mean becoming desensitized or emotionless" and then qualifies this statement with a followup, "Does a fat bitch love cheeseburgers? Absolutely."

When he worked at WQHT, he played plane-crash sound effects when Aaliyah died, complete with a woman screaming, causing his former co-host Miss Jones to walk out. Star has promised to "bury his old station" when he gets to New York (the first show is set for January 17, 2005.

Of course, listeners aren't really the people who matter in corporate radio. Advertisers do. It might be fruitful for watchdogs in Philadelphia and New York to keep a list of loca and national advertisers that air commercials during Star's broadcasts on Hartford's WPHH and Philadelphia's WUSL. And when Star moves to New York on January 17, maintain the list of advertisers on WWPR.

If we hope to win the war against hate radio, then the time has come to mobilize with diligence and action. And that means paying attention to who pays the bill.

(UPDATE: It's also worth noting that Star's real name is Troi Torain. He's also made anti-Semitic comments. Funny how he's sensitive when J-Lo uses similar language. Apparently, Torain's former New York employer Emmis has been trying to block his WWPR gig. Torain was suspended after the Aaliyah incident. The clause in his Emmis contract has kept him off New York radio until this year. That didn't stop him from ripping about 20 award plagues from WQHT and storming off the office. And there's more, even a book deal.]

[FURTHER UPDATE: The outcry has resulted in Star & Buc Wild being suspended for a day. Thanks in part to your efforts, Power 99 FM received more email and phone calls in the entire station's history.

But this is only the beginning of the fight. Since the two DJs have been repeatedly hateful and since the one day suspension amounts to a consolation prize (Star & Buc Wild were moving out of Philly anyway), the DJs will quite possibly settle into the new routine at 105.1 FM in New York. If there are any able listeners in New York willing to keep track of advertisers, now would be the time to mobilize for a future campaign. Because in light of their history of abusive radio, these two will try again. ]

[THIRD UPDATE: Because of the abusive comments (despite my repeated requests), I have closed the comments. I'm appalled by the behavior from some people here. Hate is not the way to respond with hate. I can understand anger, but by drawing generalizations about Africans or Americans, you are giving into the same spiteful tone voiced by Star. And I don't enjoy my mailbox being pummeled with hatred.]

I propose that we round up all Clear Channel's morning show shock jocks and put them on an island without electricity. Who's with me?

Last year, a bunch of their stations in North Carolina (and a few other states, I believe) were urging listeners to run bicyclists off the road. For discipline, they had to run commercials telling bicyclists to be safe(!) and give way to cars. Bleh!

Thank you so much, Ed, for taking the time to transcribe the call. Great, great work!

Posted by: moorishgirl at January 6, 2005 06:42 AM

Outstanding post. Another notch in the clear channel sucking belt.
I'm unable to hear MP3s at work, so I appreciate the transcription.
I'd like to re-iterate the power of faxing over emailing. Especially since THEY PAY for the paper & ink.

Posted by: Tito at January 6, 2005 10:38 AM

This is of a level I find completely unfathomable. Isn't there some kind of law down there against this? Isn't there a legal recourse? Why is this about advertising money instead of human rights? In Canada this would be national news. I guess I just don't understand. I don't even know how to respond other than with head shaking and a loose jaw.


Posted by: Ninja at January 6, 2005 06:03 PM

P.S. Great post, Ed.

Posted by: Ninja at January 6, 2005 06:03 PM

Dearest Ninja: Unfortunately, when it comes to obscenity, as seen with the Janet Nipplegate affair, the FCC will only investigate things that involve sexual functions. (See 182 U.S. Code Section 1461. Howard Stern, for example, was nailed through that conduit.) Things like this are par for the course on American radio, skating under the radar of both current indecency and slander laws.

So you're left with a brain-dead media failing to pick up on this story and the only mobilization which will work: making the advertisers, the listeners, and the broadcasters aware of the hate they're supporting. Which might be a good thing. Because if we can't fight through the government conduits, we can find creative ways to tighten the economic noose, oddly enough in the same way that the other side has exploited it. After all, money DOES talk.

i thnk this is the stupidest thing ever....da star buc dud should just fuckin shut up because he is soo gay....n he shouldnt b doin dumbass stuff lik callin India....fuck u star buc wild u racist son of a bitch!!!

Posted by: Treena at January 7, 2005 01:39 PM

I sent a complaint to the FCC. If this isn't obscene, I don't know what is.

Posted by: Colleen at January 9, 2005 07:52 PM

Hi, does anyone have the exact day and approx. time that this clip aired?

I'm filing with the FCC [which trust me, is the best way to go to get these people in trouble AND fined BIG TIME cause they are in hot air after that whole JANET fiasco] and I need to have that info to complete the complaint procedure!

If any of you are interested, please go to:
http://www.fcc.gov/cgb/consumerfacts/obscene.html to file as well! Make sure you comment that you HEARD the clip on the radio [not off website/email] and be sure to mention not only the racism, but the profanity and sexism as well!

Posted by: Tina at January 10, 2005 09:44 AM

I am completely shocked and outraged at this conversation. I cannot believe that listeners support and laugh at this type of outright racist, violent, putrid talk. Not to mention this man's complete disregard for another human being.

I realize there is free speech in this country and I certainly don't promote censorship, but in this day and age this type of hate-promoting, racist language should be screened. I would really like to know what can be done about this.

Ed, I appreciate your transcription very much and your awareness efforts to spread the word.

Posted by: Neetu at January 10, 2005 11:32 AM

Hello, we have a discussion about this topic at the Yellowworld forums: http://forums.yellowworld.org/showthread.php?t=21101

I need to know the original air date and if possible, the approximate time (to the nearest hour) the segment occurred so an FCC complaint can be lodged (and actually be successful). Please e-mail me, post here, or on the YW forum. Thank you.

If 10 PTC complaints can result in a $1M fine, we can surely do better.

Posted by: jose at January 10, 2005 01:41 PM

I have to say that I was absolutely shocked when I listened to the clip. I cannot believe that some people find this kind of thing funny. They should not be encouraging these racist ideas and spreading them throughout society. I am definitely going to write to the station and I encourage others to do so as well.

Posted by: anonymous at January 10, 2005 02:42 PM

The smart way to deal with this is to contact the advertisers of the program and publicize the relationship of the advertisers with this ignorant bullshit.

Hello everyone,

I am Ruchir from India and got pointed to this site from a local news agency. I find it totally absurd to see something like this happening. How can someone dis-respect a human and his/her work.

Someon should actually teach that person that its their countrymen themselves who outsource the work here and they are at fault, not us. We don't intend anything bad for your citizens, and we are awarded work on our own merit.

Its just pathetic that someone has the guts to do something like this. I'm actually quite happy at the response that people have given here........ Thank you all... Its about human ethics and not about country rivalry !

Posted by: chinna at January 10, 2005 10:40 PM

first LMAO. afro-americans ( note i dint call 'em niggers) are facing cruelest form of racism and those poor people can only take all that hatred on the indians or popularly known as "brownies"..Star being an afro- american "slave" is just venting out his anger on the whites.A guy from "philly". yeah i can get that from the garbage he spoke. what on earth "rat eater".. People in the us of a eat all kinds of living things. So dont u go about calling us the rat-eaters.

US OF A has become a big joke with the re-election of the "nose digger bush". The aura was shattered with 9/11..

So no more filthy remarks about any other country..

Son of a damn bitch!

rob.halpern@nbc.com is the email address of the person who handles NBC advertising (this is the address you get when you link off the radio station page to NBC). Send him your protests.

Posted by: An American at January 10, 2005 10:54 PM

Why you Americans outsource your works here?
Anyway, by this time, everybody in India knows the 'great' language of Americans...Americans use these words very often...I think, the time have come teach them how to respect language...

Posted by: Pride-Indian at January 10, 2005 10:56 PM

Evidently, a lot of people still have to read the book "Who Moved My Cheese?". Star and Buc, the 2 ignoramuses, went everyday to get their "cheese" from their usual place. In the meantime, someone moved the "cheese" to a different location, and both these dudes were not agile or adaptable to change their ways, and find out a new route to find their "cheese" again. The point is - no one owns the "cheese", not even the ones currently eating it, it keeps moving to the best possible location. You have to find new ways of getting to it. Will someone please tell these 2 dumbasses as well as their cheerleaders that?

Posted by: Anonymous at January 10, 2005 10:56 PM

Well I just heard the call from the net and that was really pathetic! Who was that fuckin' RJ neway. He needs to get rammed really hard for what he did. And who are the fuckin' people who found that funny.Guess All of 'em are sick, they are just sick shit and need to be placed in some dirty rat hole so they can learn some good manners.
Fuck all of 'em.

Posted by: AbbY at January 10, 2005 10:57 PM

You can also protest to Verizon wireless & Vonage (http://www.vonage.com/help_contactUsForm.php) who are also advertisers. Do send them email. Trust me, this is more effective that using foul language on this web site.

Posted by: An American at January 10, 2005 10:58 PM

I am not surprised. Many Americans truly believe what the RJ's have said. But it is heartening that so many Americans are aghast at such behaviour.

Posted by: Srinivas at January 10, 2005 10:59 PM

Just to correct the transcript, the woman's name sounds like Tina (not Steena). Tina is a pretty typical Punjabi name, and a lot of these call centers are in Gurgaon, next to New Delhi, which has a large Punjabi population.

Posted by: Xofis at January 10, 2005 11:10 PM

Thanks guys for such a wonderful effort to stop rasicism. We need to see that the DJs are out of business and not get any job other than toilet cleaning

Posted by: Star Hater at January 10, 2005 11:11 PM

Thanks for bringing it to the notice of people world wide. But the fact of the matter is that Indians working in the call centres are subject to such racial abuse every now and then. People , lets make things clear it ain't jus the cheap labour but also the effeciency of the work force which compels companies to outsource. No company would be outsourcing if the quality of service provided by india was poor. So rather than abusing call centre employees why dont citizens compete through better services.
Though such an act is regrettable, I do not see it lessening in future. The US govt must play a more pro-active role and educate people about out sourcing.I should also bring it to the notice of readers that out sourcing has infact created jobs in UK & USA. At last count it was 20,000 in UK and 140,000 in USA and the number will keep on rising. These jobs however would require to sharpen their skills. The rule is very clear and simple: SURVIVAL OF THE FITTEST. And I am sure that americans are good at what ever they do. So why not move on and look at the brighter side of things.

Posted by: cooldude at January 10, 2005 11:14 PM

well said, starhater.. that fat ass star wont even get a toilet - cleaning job.. he can just count upto 10.. eat shit, star

Posted by: shit eating star at January 10, 2005 11:14 PM

this is height of racism. one side american industry is raking in money by outsourcing jobs to india and other side this kind of manaics are creating trouble. this person should be chucked out immediately or else i appeal to every one to avoid listening to this radio

Posted by: kiran at January 10, 2005 11:19 PM

This is really a shame on the Americans.I dont blame the person who used the swear word.But the station which had the audacity to get away with this. The Radio station needs to be brought down and penalised heavily. Firing the person would only bring more publicvity to the radio station and they would try and think ways of doing more such stupid / idiotic things to catch ppls attention

Posted by: Murali at January 10, 2005 11:22 PM

I am really disgusted at some of the whites...
who think they are so intelligent...

one of them is this radio jockey in quesiton !

why do u guys in US listen to this radio station at all !!!

just ban this... or boycott it.... and the guys will get straight...

also just get some goons to beat up the RJ !
It is really pathetic ! and I am totally against any such behaviour !


Posted by: Kundan at January 10, 2005 11:22 PM

Can v file a petition on petitionsonline for these stupid good for nothing DJs to be removed from any payroll

Posted by: Star Hater at January 10, 2005 11:23 PM

That's Americans.........!!!!!
They have no culture...!!!
And they have no right to talk like this to Indians who has a civilisation of 5000 years. On that time, what was the living status of this Americans..? Are they really Americans..? They are just Intruders..!! The real Americans are the Red Indians. Even they will not behave like this.

India is Greate with Ritch heritage of many thousand years of civilisation. Be proud of it.

Posted by: Sasikumar at January 10, 2005 11:24 PM

Hmmmmmmmmmm Star & Buc Wild seem to think that they are doing something very Interesting for the listeners and seem to Enjoy it.But this is not what you are suppose to do at the stake of some innocent girl who does not even knows that she is being heard by so many people and that somebody is making fun of her.
I respect Steena and appreciate the way she handled the call.
I have been working for a Call center here in India for a Couple of Years and its VERY GOOD THAT THESE PEOPLE DID NOT CALL ME.Even though I know Phone Ethics, I Still can make the caller go crazy and Star & Buc Wild would have ended making a fool of themselves.(( any suggestions for we Indians as how to take calls from such people - write me on --CHIMPOO123@REDIFFMAIL.COM))

Posted by: Vishal at January 10, 2005 11:26 PM

Really heartening to see that Americans feel so strongly about such racist comments.I do think, respect for an individual is something that is beyond geographical boundaries.and this incident claerly shows the shallowness of the RJs.(not of the American public at large).

Posted by: Rajiv at January 10, 2005 11:27 PM

Dear All,

Looking at all these things ,i found that we need to concentarte on imparting proper education to our children ( it is not specific to US citizens or others)so that they will not be racist.World has experienced in the past a lot of violence based on cast and creed and colour of the skin.

Business out sourcing is an art of communication technology and you shopuld not be worried about it as one day Mr.Star can also be contracted by a station in India or far east and will be broadcated to its listeners live.

The underlying point is that US government should reserve a good percent of it budget to improve the qualities of its citizens instead of improving the quality of life of Iraqis by invading their country killing 100 times more people than what Saddam may have killed in his regime and 10 more years he would have been in power.

Posted by: sagar-the ocean at January 10, 2005 11:28 PM

I can't believe tht this was actually aired??
Such a sick, racist, sexist and filthy show.. and some people are actually laughing on his "joke"??
These two guys are fit to be fined heavily and banned from this kind of job forever.. they are a perverted set of people who are thriving on hate!!

Posted by: Human at January 10, 2005 11:29 PM

The behavior should be condemned. And the person responsible should be brought to law accordingly. There are lot of bastards around who have hatred for other cultures/races and their asses should be whipped. What is disheartening is that the listeners were not only indifferent to the act but also enjoyed it. This shows the hypocrisy. low morality and level of the american mentality.
The owners of the channel should take the responsibility do the needful.
And more than general public showing the concern about the issue, it is the primary responsibility of the Indian firm to ensure their employees welfare and self-respect. And the issue should be strongly pursued by the employers of the lady to demand suitable action from the american counterpart.

Posted by: rajesh gautam at January 10, 2005 11:29 PM

but all of america is like this. Just that this guy came out and told this in public.. they think that america is the only country in the whole wide world and they are the smartest ones.Asians,europeans all get picked on here. asians are called the azns and the french, they always get picked on. wats rong wid these americans? they all have totally lost it.

Guys - this is getting too much.

No point in blaming the American community as a whole. The whole community cannot be blamed for the acts of these two black sheeps.

We (both Indians & a majority of Americans) do have reservations against the acts of these two characters. So we should adopt the right approach as suggested by "An American" and bring this to the notice of concerned people.

Let's not get abusive.

Sounds like the RJ had one too many the
previous night and was going through a
hangover..Who in their right minds would talk
such crap and get a laugh out of it..I am sure
that this is not an 'India' related issue,
if this Call center was in Mexico for E.g.
I would still be Outraged at the RJ's rude/uneducated comment.

Looks like the RJ's themselves are afraid thinking that their job might be Outsourced to
India one day..where the RJ's would be sitting
in India for American Radio Listeners...hahaha
that would be cool to see...{Great idea by the way}!!


Posted by: Ra at January 10, 2005 11:35 PM

Star and Buc wild? You think you ppl are haters well u r not only haters but also hated. You must be a son of a bitch thats y u call evryone a bitch. You eff in americans don't have the eff in capacity to take care of your own customers dats y ur eff in calls are outsourced to india. otherwise you eff in american would be paying out of your nose for those eff in beads. Don't make a fool out of innocent people. You will definately be punished by God for this over-confidence and over-smartness. If you get respect you should give respect.

Posted by: Neptune at January 10, 2005 11:35 PM

I guess thats all Star & Buc Wild can do. If they were capable of doing the job that Steena is doing probably it wouldn't have been outsourced.

Anyway some Americans have skewed sense of humor. They can't appreciate humor unless it contains words like F#@$, Bitch and pigs. These guys are just catering to those American's taste.

Already Indians by their sheer intelligence and honesty have taken over many jobs from the Americans, whatever stupid jobs like the ones of these radio stations are left with the americans will be outsourced to India very soon and its not too far before the Americans will be made to laugh seeing their own dirty ass.

interesting post. the niggers do have a right to say what they want. after all the niggers cant stay out of jail while the niggerina's are happy in their cuntry. so to all my "rat eaters" give the nigger a wink and let it go - u got the money - why bother ?

Posted by: joe at January 10, 2005 11:55 PM

It is quite heartening to see people from varied backgrounds and countries say this was ugly. However, I would say that reacting to these guys is exactly what they want. They want publicity.

A bunch of losers who don't know any other way of getting into the news.

I think the only people who should be pulled are the those who are owning the radio-station. They have these people on even though they are having a history of spreading hate. And if the radio-station mgmt. is just as bad then there is little we can do!!

Also, I'd advise my fellow Indians to refrain from abusing all Americans. It is unlikely the whole nation is that bad or racist.


Posted by: Satish at January 10, 2005 11:56 PM

There is no mistake of that poor girl. RJs should understand that, its not the girl who made th e job outsourced, but their own Corporate Biggies.

This is very sad, as a Indian (more as a person), I felt sad seeing how people can behave so badly towards others.

Posted by: Venkat at January 10, 2005 11:57 PM

The language used by some Indians in this is really abusive. Please remember You are not contempting an abusive issue with another one. Why do you want to abuse all Americans for the big big mistake made by one RJ. Sujeet I hope you won't take this personally.

Posted by: Ben at January 11, 2005 12:01 AM

Is this the way to lead life? i hate these RJ guys man. such uncouth & illmannered behaviour and they call themselves as human beings. i heard the show and felt so bad for Tina.

Sorry tina - this is from rest of the human in the world. hope u guys join me in consoling her.

lets join hands to stub these kind of activity across the world. wish FCC slams a $10 million on these guys.

There was a seriousness to this forum right at the beginning, right now this is nothing more than a "Who can abuse whom better" listing. By posting idiotic comments the Indians here make the rest of us Indians look as bad as Star and Buc Wild. Please take your misplaced patriotism elsewhere. Maybe help the Tsunami victims. It's bad enough being insulted by others, to heap dirt on ourselves is worse. Else, just read, express you shock and move on. Get some perspective people.

I agree with An Indian. Do not fingerpoint the whole country for somebody's stupid act. Please note, the whole isuse itself brought upto the ppublic by Americans. Please do not make statements like
"That's Americans.........!!!!! They have no culture...!!!"

If someone in India do something stupid, Do all we have to carry the burden for that mistake ?

I respect all of our emotions but DONT FORGET TO RESPECT OTHERS (thats the whole point we are talking about this RJ too :-))

This has cross all limits!! I mean..not only this is disgusting, but its really sadistic as well...
This "Star..someshit wick" should be banned from airing any radio shows..forever. Not only that, the radio channel in question should also be made accountable..
BTW, its heartning that there r Americans who don't share this Jackass' ideas about Indians.

GREAT AMERICANS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Is this the way you show respect to all nations???

What if some other guy call's here in America and use the same filthy language to american ladies ??

I am really ashamed of all you americans who keeps on crying about outsourcing but cant realize, its America who is doing outsourcing. If you all are not "rat-eaters" then go and fight with your own business people. I hope one day god will definetely give you some senses to realise whatever Mr. Star has done. I feel more pity on those morons who laughed on whatever Star said.

Greetings everyone

I wont consder the DJ stunt as a response of general US populace. I just read an apology from the station manager in some associated news site who stopped short of cancelling the DJ`s assignment or asking them to apologise. Condoning the act of DJ and dissociating the radio station from it looks like the manager is trying to save him from the burnt of FCC fine. What would have been fitting would be to throw the DJ`s out considering repititive violation of racist abuse on radio.
Just to let American folks know, a typical Indian call centers employees earn in the bracket of $300 - $ 400 per month. Paltry as it may sound, it is doing wonders to the concerned folks.
The age profile is predominantly young english speaking college going students and in lesser number housewives looking at ways to increase family income.
This bracket never had any steady source of income before. They work normally when it is day in the US, which is night time in India. So, comes with the job is added stress of working at night. Whatever the negatives of this job. The plus side is suddenly the rise of young Indians who are confident, connected and dreamers. Wall Street journal has also done a nice article on Indian Call Center workers too.
There is more to those people than just cheap labour.

Pipe down.

It is pretty saddening to see a person getting amused by verbally abusing a fellow human being.
Talking (abusively) is one thing but intelligence,compassion is another.When the latter fails and the former reigns, it is the state of a mind in degeneration. We can only feel sorry for that senile mind.

The call center employee was just doing her job. It is important to express our feelings of support to her more than anything else.

India has taken enough of these innuendos and some really insensitive criticism on the outsourcing issue. We remain silent. We remain steadfast. We will not counter-abuse. We will do our duty.
This too shall pass. Dharma shall prevail!

I think pple like Star promote racism rather than help destroy it. If they were called "niggers" I doubt if they would have reacted in the same dignified manner as Steena. But then again, "class" or "style" hardly seem to be a part of their vocabulary!

It seems this two mother fuckers of Power99 have eaten the Rat shit on the day morning and called her on the other end a Rate eater. If I had been in that girl's position, I would have cut their balls using that phone line. They shouldn’t called RJs. They are the sons of the Bitch. The whole world knows the real face of some ODD ass hole Americans now. Let us wait and see how the Federal Communications Commission handles this issue.

Posted by: Peter at January 11, 2005 12:50 AM

Star and Buc are too pathetic, sadistic and derive pleasures from such pathetic and abusive language. It's high time they are shown the door because they don't seem to reform themselves, their disgusting and perversive behaviour continues unabated.

Nevertheless, I still think such people are islands of exception. America has got tremendous enterprise and it's people are patriotic. Even if they don't have much respect for other countries, every time it may not necessarily culminate into hate and abuse. They may keep it to themselves. But Star and Buc have went out of way and hurled racist abuses.

Posted by: Ravikant Bhat at January 11, 2005 12:54 AM

Let's not criticise their doings and become them.
There's an Indian saying, "An elephant does not pay heed to a barking dog."
This is just a sign of individual's mental weakness. When the ego of a person of a weak mind is bruised, he retorts to abuses. That's what these RJ's have done. They just have a weak personality. Some of them are just born that way. We should sympathise with such people who are born with pre-natal deformities and abnormalities.

Posted by: Just another proud Indian at January 11, 2005 01:00 AM

Dear RJ's,

It is very enlightening to know about your knowledge and your culture. People are aware of your false philosophies and democracy propaganda. It is a sign of how americans are educated!. HAIL AMERICA. I am not surprised, by these two people comments, when they have a leader who himself is a racist. Next time any of you people see white's, spit on their faces!.

Posted by: s_crystl at January 11, 2005 01:01 AM

Star seems to be a LUNATIC.He does not represent the whole of America.But then such Lunatics exist everywhere,even here.The best way out is ignore them and don't give such sort of free publicity.America is a great nation so in India.

Posted by: rapsap at January 11, 2005 01:05 AM

Well, its pity that the person does not know anything about India other than hating them. Hoes is refeing India as "East India". It would be better if Govt of India take up this issue and make this guy stay in India for some years so that his viewpoint can be changed.

I was surprised to see such a stupid act from a RJ. How would the concerned department allow him to play a clip that they recorded. Is the fate of the radio station at the hands of such irresponsible people. Its a shame that the RJ had to do it. But yes, as you all have been saying, not all americans behave this way. Some of them like these are the real culprits. What if this guy records some verbal obscenity conversation with someone else. Wouldnt the radio station think about social responsibilities. This is bad and absolutely punishable. We all are with you "Steena", whoever you are, whereever you are. We know you just did your job and everybody knows he tried to play a prank and nobody who behaves this way will be treated as humans.

What was so funny about that from Star and Buc ? Guys who do not know to speak, running a radio show. Isnt that so pathetic ? That is the reason the calls are being outsourced to India. They are more educated and know their manners than these assholes who do not know to respect or communicate. What kind of motherfuckers employed them in their company and that too in the morning show ? And there is a bunch of assholes who are laughing in the conversation. Probably they are also a part of the same group. Donkeys everywhere in the Power 99 Radio !!!

all it takes is 2 Culturally deprived and emotionally handicapped racist pigs to come up with an idea...a radio station to host it and a nation of no-brainers to appreciate and laugh over it.

The girl who took the call is an example of what culture can do to an individual, the racist pigs are an example of what lack of culture can do to an individual

Americans always doubtedly think that they are much civilized and advance, but the reality is that they are day by day becoming wild and unpopular, only from Americans such a behaviour is generally expected,When they don't respect their own parents then what else can be expected,even they don't respect their national flag as many of the celebrities wear garments having the prints of their national flag, i think in order to compensate Steena, RJs must be put behind the bars as this act brought the shame for their country, in the end i would like to say that Steena plz forgive these civilized monsters.

Guys no need to blame Americans as a whole for two idiots. Remember that even we in India have some racists, hindu and Muslim religious leaders. And that doesn't make every Hindu or Muslim a culprit.
I have lived in America and they are more cultured than what we know of in India and didn't experience any racist comment/action there.
Nobody has time and also nobody is interested in listening about 99% of normal people who are not racist, communal. So these one off cases gets publicised.

So I would like to request all Indians to target just 2 culprits and not Americans as a whole in their comments.

Posted by: Ashish at January 11, 2005 02:31 AM

yo man what the fuck was that all about????i myself have worked in a call centre in india and i am happy to say that not all americans are racist but this is by far the worst abuse that i have heard.all u racist pigs in the US of A you are a fuckin big bunch of motherfuckin shit eatin losers!

Posted by: adi at January 11, 2005 02:34 AM

Prabhakar, I won't like to argue on this and this is off topic but Americans love their nation much more than we do. Their Nationalism gets displayed instead of "INDIANS" which includes myself, who loves to proclaim their love for country but that in noway translates in our actions.

Posted by: Ashish at January 11, 2005 02:36 AM

I am really shokced by these obscence statements made by the RJ. What the Americans need to realise is that outsourcing works in both ways. Both parties tend to benefit from it and not just India. I should also highlight that Indian community in US is at the most successfuly community in US contributing in various innumerable fields. I can only say that the RJ has only made a "FOOL: of himself by naking all those commens. It is on account of few people like this RJ which give reflects poorly on the entire US.

Posted by: Chirag K at January 11, 2005 02:36 AM

Your economy will crash within a month without outsourcing. Fill those beads in your head as it's clear that you don't have brains and shut the eff up.
Oh about the rat eating stuff.. Be careful, the next time you eat a dish in an American hotel..you never know if their meat delivery is outsourced.

we indians have earned these jobs on our merit and not on americans mercy.

I think this is what is being taught in american schools and colleges .If this is how they have been brought up then, first thing that they shd be doing is to pack off the statue of liberty in a godown i.e that signifies liberty for all.

Just a thought..... I believe it is incorrect blaming or abusing the whole american community for a dirty act by a few mischief mongers. Well realize that the whole outsourcing decision is also made by a few americans. As far as the incident is concerned I feel there are better tricks to play than to harass an innocent girl. But the truth is this could just be smoke we really do not know what else is happenning..... Should'nt there be some kind of law prohibiting such acts ???

Posted by: Mr. Thought at January 11, 2005 02:46 AM

That was appalling. I wish more Americans take note of this and act against such behaviour. Actually that goes for people all around the world. Black, brown or white, how does it matter? That Star fellow probably is highly pleased at his ‘ability’ to insult and mock fellow humans. Even a 4 year old is capable of showering such abuses. Blame both for their abysmally low IQ levels. People like Star lead wretched lives and are mentally sick individuals. As their hatred builds, they resort to more odious crimes such as rape and thievery. Society at large must reprimand such behaviour, nipping them at bud. Incompetence (as in prominent in Star’s case) is the basis for such hate.

Kudos to Tina for keeping her cool thruout. That’s a job well done.

Nobody in that country will think of this as acts of couple of perverts but will generalise this as american behaviour. Anger will rise and Americans will be subjected to abuse when they visit India , those poor guys will wonder what wrong they have done and why is their country hated so much.

Its not the 1st time that the stupid americans have spoken like this, its just the 1st time they have done on AIR, and in the process have likened themselves to "rat eaters....".
Mind u silly americans... the calls which wud have DEFINITELY been made to some shit place in ur US of A landed in a holy land called India coz Americans themselves have been downgraded by these very OUTSOURCING companies. You were found to be totally useless and costly at the same time. So next time before u dare to call anyone names .. be aware of the facts 1st. We take pride, and now the whole world even acknowledges, that we are the MASTERS in our work n now we are the MASTERS FOR YOUR WORK as well.. U ppl look good outside an EMPLOYMENT EXCHANGE... may the whole US turn up there and claim their unemployment benefits.

Why get abusive who abuses ? Why spoiling your mouth guys ? You can always protest but not in abusive manner. Abusing again doesn't make you better than RJ's. Just protest this to FCC until it takes action on these RJ's.

The behavior of the RJ should be condemned in strongest possible manner. Not only the RJ used abusive language against a female, they made derogatory comments against another country (India). Also, the RJ made fun of Steena live on the radio without bothering to inform her that she is being heard by hundreds of people. I believe the RJs should be fired/banned for life and a strong action should be taken against the Radio Station. This will ensure that such offences are not repeated again.

OK. First of all. I don't condone the man's actions. India and America are both countries where free speech is valued and encouraged.

I don't see what the outrage is all about.

If you don't like what he does, don't listen to his radio channel.

If Steena doesn't want to run the risk of talking to nasty strangers, she shouldn't work in a Business Process Outsourcing Office.

If you don't like someone saying something, you have the right to not purchase their merchandise, not listen to the radio channel they represent, not purchase the goods they endorse.

You do not, however, have the right to pressurise his employer to fire him, nor do you have the right to take away his license to be an RJ.

Don't like it? Change the American constitution, put barriers to free speech. When it comes to freedom, it's all or nothing.

Freedom in all forms is a birthright, and though it can be abused, this abuse can be fought by freedom alone, not by repression or coercion.

Cool guys, Nothin would happen if u write in this blog, not all are to be blamed except those 2 nuts , the best thing that can be done is to teach them a good lesson, they should be fired from their jobs and fined heavily

Posted by: romeo at January 11, 2005 05:02 AM

It is very disheartening and sick to read about these incidents. I wonder what pleasure can a human being derive of such sadistic and unbearable behavior. I guess some kind of regulation should be done. Why do people crib about outsourcing ? I guess a more pragmatic study should be done as to why the companies are resorting to outsourcing. I guess anyone who is against outsourcing should read Charles Darwin's Survival of fittest. I guess some idea is got about it.
A request to all other bloggers. Please avoid foul language on Star and Buc. Lets set a precedent atleast. If Star and Buc used pathetic language, lets not resort to giving it back in the same language.
Hope that some action is taken in this regard soon. Feel very sorry for that poor girl !!!

Folks of the Globe,
It is but obvious that a lot of us have our comments here either because we have been offended or are upset due to the comments made.
It could have been a Star or a Buc, but let me tell you that all of us have been looking at the far side of things, may be that Star has used a simulated call, if that is not the case, why has the victim to this post not been able to actually confirm this activity, never the less, there are whole bunch of incidents that lie below covers and there is not one soul out there who has a clue about how people have been affected due to such irrational behaviour or are reacting to those calls. The entire world is so REACTIVE that we dont care a damn if we are actually wasting time reading this entire post. Instead of being REACTIVE can someone ever stop this from happening or turn a blind eye, This world is not moving in the right direction, let alone USA or INDIA or PAKISTAN OR UK or anyone... we have nothing better to do than just complain, what transpired did happen, the show is not off AIR, Outsourcing has not and will not stop, you and I will not stop posting our opinions, LIKE ANYONE CARES.. STOP POSTING AND WASTING YOUR GOOD LORDS TIME, GET BACK TO WORK AND KEEP IT GOOD THERE...

Fucking "Star and Buc",

I know only blacks can talk like this foolish. He/she(or mix) should be sent back into african jungles to stay with chimpanzee like yr president "chimpanzee face" Bush.

Posted by: Mike at January 11, 2005 05:10 AM

Onkar, Wht you are telling is as good as "If you are afraid of getting run down, don't stay in a place where there are roads. Goto moon instead" which is absolutely ridiculous. I guess you need to look at the meaning of freedom more clearly. Freedom of speech or rather freedom doesn't mean one has the liberty to hurt another human being for some personal interests. No one can't tell steena that she can't work in a BPO, just because she can't put up with this kind of thrash. I guess you don't have any moral and ethical right to downplay another human being by declaring so. freedom needs to be interpreted in the right way. Just because some dumb people (including you) think they can get away with whatever thrash they are dishing out, no one should go and change anything (read constitution). I guess you should really evolve as a human being.

Posted by: coolbrains at January 11, 2005 05:10 AM

These high school dropouts don't understand the concept of outsourcing. They just know (from watching the local news) that it is bad for America.

Posted by: nothin2loose at January 11, 2005 05:24 AM

I was shocked after I heard the tape. Filed a complaint with the FCC. Since there has been enough talk already about Mr. Star, I'll refrain from that.

However, it is sure heartening to most of the posts here. Reassures faith in the inherent goodness of people.

I think coolbrains encapsulated very well what I would have wanted to say.

Peace and Love

Posted by: neurojava at January 11, 2005 05:26 AM

I know alot of Americans who are just plain cool

But then I know alot of Americans that think anything not American is worth insulting.

Those sorts need a serious education and should stop calling themselves Americans.

If that girl in India is trying to feed her family with this call center, at least she does it with more dignity than Star feeds his family

Posted by: Kerala at January 11, 2005 05:30 AM

very unfortunate for someone to be broadcasting something like this. I am amazed at how STAR gets around by openly saying that he believes in Hate. I am really concerned that he might put negative thoughts in the minds of this country's youth. go see the movie 'american history X'.

above all, if someone did not know, "STAR IS BLACK"! isn't that ironic that a black guy will turn & spew hate at some one else?!!

Posted by: human at January 11, 2005 05:41 AM

No Problems at all. Let us show our tolerance to all this shit thrown by them .
I can assure you all ..with the rate at which Indian's are educating themselves , taking life seriously and aspiring to do well everywhere they go ....these Type of Americans would be second grade citizens in their own Country in 30 years from now.

I don't think its a good idea to blame the whole American community for this. I just heard the conversation and its really bad on the part of those guys on the radio to pass on such indecent remarks on someone doing their job.

and its terrible to know that there are some people out there encouraging this kind of activities. Shame on those guys. Learn and grow to live like a decent human being. Everything that goes comes around. You should understand that you are not the only one who can speak filthy language. Every single word you said about that innocent girl is you. Horrible rat eater!!

It's no surprise to me that shock jockee's or whoever do anything in their reach to attract listeners. However the duo might have gone overboard in what they think is 'cool' enraging their listeners. There should be a consequence to such indecent action and I would like to see them making a public appologu and the radio station firing them. Such a behaviour is inexcusable.

Abusing India is a way of showing fear, doing it on the radio in front of your own people is spreading fear. Indians are stronger at heart than most. The girl who answered the call showed how proffesional Indians are. Hail her. Hail India. Jaihind...manoj

Wow, folks, I'm truly overwhelmed by the response here. The only thing I should add here is that nobody resorts to Star's level. What he did was detestable, but please don't resort to similar hatred in your responses.

Posted by: Ed at January 11, 2005 07:13 AM

Guys...lets keep this civil.Star and Co are a bunch of idiots and not representative of the the American people.As an Indian I am disgusted how some of us have taken this as an opportunity to insult all Americans.Both America and India are civil societies with freedom of speech.When this freedom is abused, we should not stoop to the same level as these shock jocks.The best thing to do would be to sign petitions and email the station's advertisers viz. hit them where it hurts the most.And lets learn from this lesson and treat everybody with respect,irrespective of race, nationality, gender etc.

Posted by: NFD at January 11, 2005 07:37 AM

Dear fellow indians,
An act of one angry, irresponsible, idiotic, racist maggot cum RJ shouldnt be compared on par with all americans. Every human condems this diplorable act. The lady who took the call could have easily shot back at him with an equally gross and filty language but she didtn which shows your country peoples patience and magnanimity. Lot of people are sending complaints to FCC and that stupid son of a bitch will be punished.

Its good to see many Americans raising their voices in support of India. What those two guys have done on the radio is nothing but hatred. These guys are incompetent. They cant do anything better than talking nonsense on the radio with their two meter mouth.

For those (Indians) who have spoken ill about USA, please refrain from doing so in future. The Americans are matured and they treat us well.
The American justice will surely curb these kind of behaviour.

Posted by: Gans at January 11, 2005 08:01 AM

No, I am not shocked by this incident - it only strengthens my conviction that the western world is among the most uncivilised societies in the world, which is why they have to go to such pains to prove themselves as civilised.
This absolutely reflects on the US as a whole, their society, value system, lack of the family system and the resulting rot in every generation. I am glad that the Indian lady was absolutely professional and courteous, like only civilised people can be.
As for the Americans, they are digging their own grave and paving their own way to hell like only primitive, moral-lacking people like them can. So much for their self-righteousness about Asia.

Posted by: roo at January 11, 2005 08:02 AM

I would like to request my fellow Indians not to paint the all the Americans in the image of these two despicable and idiotic RJ's. Most Americans are polite and friendly to foreigners and immigrants from other nations.

The Best way to deal with this is to make a complaint to FCC and make sure that there is a consequence to this kind of behaviour on radio, such as a huge fine and boycott of their advertisers.

Lets not forget our heritage and culture and use abusive language in this site. Pls go thru this site and air your protests thru the website and the e-mail address provided with NBC, Cingular and Verizon.

If we also use that kind of language, there is no difference between that Star and us.

The act done by Star is 100% condemnable and I feel pity for his language. He had shown his culture and his family backgrounds.

Posted by: jago at January 11, 2005 08:25 AM


Thanks for posting this piece. Like some other fellow-Indians pointed out before, the over-reaction and hatred expressed in some of the postings here do not reflect the view of the India community as a whole. That’s not to say that the community is not outraged by this behavior by public personalities … but there is obviously a more civilized and effective method in bringing these 2 to task, than sink to their levels!

The information provided here is really good and per the suggestions here, I would “snail-mail” my rebuttal, as opposed to e-mailing it and risk my protest being lost in cyber space :-)

IMHO – The unwritten code of conduct that artists ought to adhere to in public broadcasting, should be uniform for people of all races. Minorities feel they could get away with making racial slurs, just because they are minorities and so-called “oppressed folks”. It’s ironic but there are many who have made careers out of this with limited talent!
I think there ought to be something in place that does not let ANYONE get away with any racial slur - be it black, brown, yellow or white!


Posted by: SJ at January 11, 2005 08:32 AM

those guys here thinking that americans are cool and not all americans are like this, have not lived in america. Deep inside, they sport nothing but hatered and contempt for other countries, and most care only about women of other countries they can f*ck - so those uppity indians who think that americans are good etc - you will learn when you get the chance. Star and bucwild are black, which is pretty bad, since they still have not learned after 300 years of abuse from the whitey. Maybe whiteys are right about blacks..

We are from country where Gandhi and Buddha was born...So plz..dont abuse all Americans for this..which i see some of u have done...I believe most of people I met in the US are not as that RJ..they are peace loving and tolerant as we are..

Immediate resignation of RJ is the first reaction any sane person would have. The call is not only abusive, it is full of hatred and discrimination. The same person should be sued by the employer and the amount should go to the lady on the phone.

Posted by: J at January 11, 2005 09:10 AM

This is a post to all the "chutiya" (you know what that means) indians making racist comments against blacks on this boards. You guys really need to grow up as much as these idiots RJs. You are doing the exact same thing. You are creating a stereotype of blacks in your mind and then associating the whole race with that negative image.
Condemn the RJ due as much as you want, condemn Clear Channel as well, but why the fuck are you making insulting comments against the whole black race?
Also instead of venting your impotent anger on an anonymous web forum, why don't you fucking do something about it? Contact FCC, Clear Channel, the advertizers, make your point to people that matter. Indulging in abuse on this forum will not achieve anything except giving rise to disgust for indians, because many of the people reading these comments WILL associate the comments by few assholes like you with ALL the Indians.

Posted by: Uber Indian at January 11, 2005 09:22 AM

I request fellow Indians to maintain their coolness, recall the civilization, which gave non-violence to world. I know most indians especially girls are not used to this language at all. feel sorry for the call center girl, to have to go through all this.

Lets hope FCC and america would not want their children to learn from ingorant and mal-civil RJs.

America should nclude basic economics lessons in schools - and some advaance economics lessons for college kids to learn about american economic oppression on the third world.


Posted by: jan at January 11, 2005 09:26 AM

I just wish, those RJs never get a job for their entire life. I've been now in America for about 1 and 1/2 years, and have found that Americans really are good and loving people and have great respect for them.

But those 2 must be punished.

Thanks, Ed, for posting this. Also, thanks to so many Americans who have protested this kind of ranting from these racist pigs. I suppose having suffered racial abuse themselves, they are now "transferring" the same on to someone else.

I do not blame Americans in general for the gross behavior of these two. By and large, American people are generous, kind, and caring. So, this is not a reflection on American culture or people. Having said that, here is what I have to say to these two idiots:

You stupid, fu$king, rat-bitten coons and jungle bunnies, take your garbage mouth and go back to Africa. All you do in America is spread garbage and whine about discrimination. Look at others who came after you and have prospered in America (Italians, Irish, Chinese, Koreans, Indians...). You niggers have squandered every opportunity that America offers to get out of your rat hole ghettos. You fu$king idiots don't even have an elementary idea of geography to know that there is no place called "East India". You desrve to be where you are in the American society i.e., in the gutter.

Hi everybody,

I am really embarassed after listening to the clip they posted on the website. People are really abusing the radio and saying that hatred sells. You have to understand that people with no talent will do shows like that and cover up acts like this. I wish some authorities are notified and necessary action will be taken. Mr star : whoever he is needs to apologize publicly.
This is a disgrace to the whole DJ community.


Posted by: Samuel at January 11, 2005 10:47 AM

Folks, please. I don't want to have to moderate this discussion, but I'm going to have to ask you to stop the hateful comments (to ANYONE) if you want to participate here. That's EXACTLY the thing that Star wants. Weigh in with thought and action, rather than the same brand of savagery that Star has espoused.

The Philly station has already weighed in. But Star & Buc Wild will be leaving there for New York.

If you want to register your complaint, I'd suggest contacting WWPR, where Star & Buc Wild will begin broadcasting their show as of Jan. 17.

>>That's EXACTLY the thing that Star wants.

oh pliss. these monkeys are not that intelligent. the can shout, beat up ppl, steal, but nothing more complicated than that. oh yeah, drugs and booz and pimping are also their chosen careers. Philly is full of them. where they settle, they drive real estate prices down, bring neighbourhoods down, and bring the aesthetics of the area down. have you seen them? not good for anything other than stuff like this - shock radios, rap music, junk like that - do not expect anything other than that from these ppl.

Posted by: pedrovat at January 11, 2005 10:54 AM

yeah, as Ed says, one radio host who says junk like this is not representative of an entire community, but the it would be better if the community condemns his actions too - and to tellthem that it;s not funny. This star bucwild are incapable of any job other than talking trash, so their jobs will never be outsourced. I wonder how they would feel when the next time they are subject to some racism where they live.

Hey ppl,

Is there a way to make the 2 publicly (on radio) apologize to the whole indian community? if yes, we gotta resort to that method. wat say?

Posted by: sp24 at January 11, 2005 11:00 AM

Guys this discussion is getting all together on a different track. We should Not balme all Americans for the shameful act of those 2 senseless RJs. As an Indian I request all other Indians to show our true culture by showing respect for all human beings.
We should punish those who doesn't respect human being & create problems between humans , races & nations by using such abusive langauge.
Fellow Indians dont forget our culture & show patience & share respect.

Posted by: Indian Girl at January 11, 2005 11:04 AM

but we need an apology indian girl

Posted by: sp24 at January 11, 2005 11:06 AM

I really appreciate the lady (Steena or Tina) who took the call and maintained her composure. That kind of decency comes by profession and by the cultural upbringing.. which the caller lacked completely. The greatness of Indians is that, though the west came and robbed us of our glory, we still SHINED. I hope FCC wakes up and does something tangible in this case.


Posted by: Kalyan at January 11, 2005 11:16 AM

I agree that we should not be blaming everybody but the least that Mr. Richard Lewis could have done was apologise & fire the RJ's. This is in real bad taste.

Posted by: Indian Guy at January 11, 2005 11:16 AM

Its funny two niggers are now using racism to express frustration over jobs which niggers were never capable of getting even before outsourcing. Look at how bad their unemployement rate is. Don't even getting me started on education.. 30 % of them drop out years before they reach high school.. 90 % of of the rest don't even make it to high school.......and they want jobs "just like that" A white guy complaining for jobs makes more sense than a senseless migger....

Being an Indian , Im sorry that many other indians have vented their anger at all Americans and whites. The behavious on the talk show was despicable and it is true that this kind of racism is highly prevalent in America today.Sad :(

Those who want to object to the talk show should warn the sponsoring companies about boycotting their products.

Since we have opined enough on the topic and more importantly done the exact same thing we are ostensibly trying to criticize, here are a few of the things that I did to make sure the mainstream media is made aware of this incident:

1. emailed CNN, MSNBC and FOXNEWS:) ( even Mr. O'Rielly)

2. Wrote to the FCC management (contact info below). Please write to them and let them know we are outraged:

federal communications commission
enforcement bureau
investigations & hearing division
445 12th street, sw
washington dc, 20554
fax 866.418.0232

chairman michael k. powell: michael.powell@fcc.gov

commissioner michael j. copps: michael.copps@fcc.gov
commissioner kevin j. martin: kjmweb@fcc.gov
commissioner jonathan s. adelstein: jonathan.adelstein@fcc.gov

3. Wrote to my local radio station ( NJ 101.5).

4. Writing to the NY Times and my local newspapers.

We'll see how these jokers can get away unscathed.

Join in guys! Please help because we all know its wrong. No point in beating a dead horse. Lets try and get involved.

I want to ensure some of the Indians who have come to these pages that, just as Star & Buc Wild are not reflective of the DJ community at large, Americans in general are NOT reflective of an anti-Indian bias. Certainly not where I live. If you're referring to racial profiling, I should point out that in any nation, there's an important distinction between a nation's government and a nation's people.

And thanks, neurojava, for the leads. However, keep in mind the following will probably produce results:

1. Star & Buc will be broadcasting on WWPR in New York. This is where their show will be. Writing into the Philly station is fine, but if your goal is to get these guys off the air, send your missives that way.

2. Advertisers. If someone in New York listens to Star & Buc, make a list of who advertises during the show. This is the most palpable way to cripple the station. In some cases, an advertiser buys a bloc and the advertising director programs it among X number of times a day during several peak listening hours. So the advertiser may not be completely aware that his business is being sold during the Star & Buc Wild Show. If he is, however, he may not wish to associate himself with a personality who preaches hate.

3. Neurojava is right on the money about sending letters to newspapers and journals. In fact, Devalina Guha-Roy's efforts were what got this into the Philly Inquirer.

I think Indian Government should step up and do something diplomatically, its just not aired in US (where the law permits these kind of race related hatred) but its aired globally thru the net, so its not just US. If it happens in India, those kind of idiots would be out of job and also facing criminal charges.

My fellow Indians,
Lets not bad mouth ourselves over this RJ Guy, if we do the same as he did, then what is the difference between us and the likes of RJ ?

Wait a Minute! He, on the first place, doesn't sound like a Black. He could be, but I don’t understand the mystery behind him repeating “My Six Year Old American White Girl” over and over again!

But Certainly, I bet the male RJ isn’t black, for that matter, nor is the female RJ. Black or White, doesn’t matter, the fact still remains that this was an extremely uncivilized & Ruthless behaviour, which only the Americans are capable of doing.

Secondly, by doing this the Radio Station, the company that makes the Beads and the RJs have become much more popular than what they could. The easiest way to achieve popularity is through a controversy. Hence the beneficiaries are:

1) The Radio Channel
2) The Makers of the product (BEADS)
3) The RJs too (If not this channel, there are many Racists American companies that would offer them better jobs for doing something they have always longed to do

I do empathize the Customer support person, Teena, but I don't think she handled the situation as good as some of you think she did.


1) Well, from the voice, even a retard could’ve easily made out that it was a male caller, why did she have to call him “M’am” and that too, TWICE!
2) She could not understand what he was saying and at the same time did not want to make him repeat, probably because she knew from the voice that he was pissed and hence handled the call in a procedural way just like she would’ve done with 100 other callers whom she would’ve spoken to.

While Teena’s employers sympathize her position and give her a week’s off, they should also not forget to give her a friendly warning about the way she handled the call.

But given the fact that the call, by itself was a Prank, we can safely ignore that part.

In the US, you’ll find the whites and Blacks abusing each other and the Indians and other ethnic groups in a more cruel way compared to which, this is nothing. It’s trivial and I think u guys should ignore this and get back to work.

If you continue to Sign the petitions that some of you have created and send in your grievances to the FCC, trust me, nothing will happen. The loads of letters you ppl send will supplement to the GBs and GBs of such letters those guys get everyday and yours will be rated the least priority task.

So stop talking big things and get back to work. I found a few ‘concerned’ Indians warning their fellow citizens not to generalize and post abusive comments against Americans in order to distinguish ourselves from them Racists. BULLSHIT!
I’d encourage ppl to continue bashing if you like, cos that’s the only way you can quench ur thirst to retaliate. MAHATMA GANDHI was an A$$HOLE, FCUK MAHATMA GANDHI IN HIS BUTT WITH A HOT IRON ROD AND THEIR FOLLOWERS AND AHIMSA SHIT. Your letters to FCC OR ANY OTHER ORGANIZATION OR EVEN GEORGE BUSH FOR THAT MATTER ARE A MERE WASTE OF TIME.




Posted by: THE PRAGMATIST at January 11, 2005 01:23 PM

the discussion is taking a whole new direction!.. Gandhi bashing now? Pragmatist watch what u say.

Posted by: what the at January 11, 2005 01:36 PM

Hi "What The"

I certainly wouldn't want this discussion to be directed towards that direction, if u choose not to, then u certainly wouldn't argue or at least if u have read about Gandhi and his Hippocratic Docmas.

Well, India was once a Nation that was known not only for its wealth but also for its incessant bravery, GANDHI was one MORON who influenced the people of India and made them inherit a slavery attitude and u can find it in the genes of 99% of Indians. I'm one of the very few Indians who uses what I've been bestowed upon (REASONING) to redefine "Tolerence" and "Patience and the extent to which these two virtues could be exercised in any given situation.

If an American were to be in Teena's position, he or even SHE would've made the RJ puke his balls out. THAT'S ATTITUDE PAL.


Posted by: THE PRAGMATIST at January 11, 2005 01:48 PM

"THE PRAGMATIST" is a crazy MOFO shiv sena dick sucker for sure. How dare he denegrades MAHATHMA GANDHI? If Mahatma was not there, he would still be cleaning up the poo coming from british white asses. "THE PRAGMATIST " is in the class of these bloody RJs. Just fuelling hate against people. These bloody RJs are trying to follow the path of another shock jock, howard stern. Anyone can become famous if they call Bush's mom a whore. Im sure these guys are too pussy for that. So, they call up a poor indian girl and try to harrass her.
Yeah, now I remember. Once I saw Star's mom in
Bronx and fucked the hell out of her and then I came on her mouth. man, that was awesome...

Posted by: shivasenahater at January 11, 2005 01:49 PM

Such is the nature of a free forum. Please understand that when we write things like what the Pragmatist wrote we conveniently forget some basic facts.

1. From what I have gathered, the owner is not Indian. Yet he was effected enough to blog this topic here. When we generalize and use epithets like "Racist American" etc., ultimately what we are doing is lowering the force of our argument. So please refrain from using such language.

2. Ultimately, while some of us might think that this is a reflection of a greater social problem - fact is that people such as the RJ are in a vast minority. Most people are decent regular folks who would be outraged if they were to read about this incident. So please dont get race/nationality into this. I would accept the argument that this would not have happened to a call center person in say Ireland but lets face it - the incident itself is an exception than a rule.

3. Ultimately, if rather than raving ourselves out of breath we want to achieve something so that the people responsible are held accountable - espousing "violence against violence" isnt going to solve anything. We need to get out - talk to your community, write to the FCC ( yes, it will work if we get large number of complaints in ), write to newspapers, talk to the sponsors like Ed mentioned. But please dont go ploselytzying about non-issues.

Sorry, didnt mean to pontificate myself. But the fact is I am as outraged as everyone else. And I think all our time can be put to better use by letting the mainstream know about what happened and what we think should be done rather than talking about Gandhi or Bose.

If you can't sign the petition get lost please. Nobody is keeping a knife under your head to sign.

You just do not know the value of Mahatma Gandhi.

Well, what REALLY differentiates u & I is the fact that I maintain discipline on an online forum and express myself better effectively than u do, for all I see is a bunch of abuses that you've learnt alongside ur education (I wonder if u really are, are u a highschool drop out or something?) between something absolutely junk.

Also call the PA attorney general and the FCC. Do your part if you dont' wanna remain lazy monkey brain eating suckers....

Let's kick their ass.

Posted by: KickTheirAss at January 11, 2005 02:17 PM

This was taken up on Rediff.com also and sadly this is an attitude that my call center friends tell me is very common with Americans. The point here is though that this was caught on tape on Radio.. and esp for these radio heads who have nothing but hate on their mind, they probably don't know that the American bead manufacturing company has outsourced their calls to India, and so if he has a problem then he should have it with that company
So Star prolly hates his own country's governance for transfering jobs out to another country.

But this attitude of a few Americans is well known all over the world - that they have a problem with the rest of the world
- no wonder they are being attacked for the fault of a few dumbheads
- and if this continues to be the case, then people like Star and whoever the other Wild one is, will pay for it eventually.

The sensible thing here is for the Radio to ban such stupid characters from spreading their hate message and keep it to themselves and bring out some positive ways to deal with it. But unfortunately if they have been signed for bringing in money, they will not be banned...

ClearChannel has been the target of a lot of malpractices I believe 'cos I hear it's name pop up every now and then and they also have tried to answer these allegations on their website.

Hope there is enough sensitivity in this country for what they are being accused of and how they need to be more embracing in their views...

Great work though Ed, to bring this out here. I got here from Rediff.com that posted your link.
Hope people do read more about this and voice their opinion with the appropriate governing authorities.

Posted by: Shrikant at January 11, 2005 02:23 PM

Yeah, Im a high school drop out. So what? I am reasonable enough not to hate someone who has experienced more than I have, who is knowledgable than I am. How crazy would you be if you are thrown out of train just because you were not white? That was what Gandhi experienced in SA. That was his wakeup call. So, this incident is a wakeup call for Teena and maybe Indians too. Teena, if you are reading this, just feel my(and the support of all of Indians) moral support towards your cause. We feel very much with you.
What I meant by wakeup call, is that you guys dont need to feel ashamed against some crazy dude abusing you over phone. You are more intelligent than he is. Believe me, Indians are more evolved cranially than the blacks. They have done slavery for ages and the evolution of their brain was stunted for years. As you can see from the behaviour of Star, that it still is... Let them take some time to catch up with us. And teena, next time, HANG UP BEFORE HE BULLSHITS YOU, OK??

And pragmatist, FYI, I am a Senior Tech Analyst earning big bucks in Boston. Just to correct your prejudice about people.

Posted by: pragmatisthater at January 11, 2005 02:26 PM

Well..I see a similar hatred (if not more) in here as was displayed by RJs..and plz..y are we using abusive language in here..? moreover, plz ..try and keep this forum to the current topic..rather than expressing ones view abt Gandhi and SC Bose..its really juvenile...what are we discussing here..are we trying to do something abt it or just talk abt it...and plz..Do not make ur view abt all americans based on few such incidents..it doesnt reflect the attitude of whole comunity....most americans are polite and friendly..

I complained to (News & Public
Affairs Director: Loraine Ballard Morrill) of Power 99FM regarding the attrocious behavior of the 2 RJ's. Below is my mail first and then Loraine's answer to that

Dear Loraine

I heard the recoreded version of a power 99fm morning show where a call was made to India for a "white girls quick beads". The DJ not only used filthy language against the sales person which was outrageously racist act, the more disturbing is that everyone in the station was enjoying it.
Something like this is intolerable in free country like America. If
they have any issue with outsourcing of jobs I am sure this is not the right way of saying that. This is one of the meanest way of using a public medium for which we all pay taxes.
I hope this mail is not going to a deaf ear and proper measure will be taken so that this does not happen again.
Thanks and Regards


Loraine's Answer:
Dear Anamika,

Your words have not fallen on deaf ears. We hear you. The language
you refer
to was offensive and not acceptable in any way. Management has
disciplined the
parties involved. What made it worse was posting it on the website.
The person
responsible has been disciplined. We have taken measured and this will
happen again - Loraine

Posted by: Anamika at January 11, 2005 02:35 PM

Ha...you can make a BIG thing out of it or make a mockery of the stupid Radio Jockey who needs money, does not have comical intelligence, so he uses some poor soul in a call center to take out his learnings.
Someone pointed Black vs Indians vs etc. - PLEASE don't get over excited and give such comments. All over the world there are ediots and we should not talk about cranial maturity as there are no reports and even if there is we will find some other race to be superior than some other, so what's the point.
Let's despise this ediot and support the petition to get him out. Cheap-star should be his new name.

Posted by: Sanazu at January 11, 2005 02:48 PM

anyone heard about this rumor that it was an India and US army operation that caused the set of waves/tsunami - this was reported on a PR radio station.
Not sure if this was related to the Indonesia Tsunami or the one in UAE that was noticed a few hours back - http://in.rediff.com/news/2005/jan/11uae.htm

Posted by: Shrikant at January 11, 2005 03:05 PM

The biggest irony I see, racism and ignorance aside, is that these DJs don't realize they are alienating a huge chunk of their OWN audience with these comments. Many second-generation Indian Americans and other Asian Americans are among the most significant consumers of hip-hop and R&B music, and African American culture in general. Indians, Asians and Latino youth often find an affinity to African-American culture because they feel marginalized by the mainstream American culture which is decidedly more Eurocentric. They should be aware of this ESPECIALLY in the Tri-State area where their numbers are large. And yet sadly enough when I lived in the Northeast I experienced probably more overt racism as an Indian-American from blacks than from whites.

Dear Pragmatist,
Although I agree on some of your points, but the way you put them was inappropriate. Have you given it a thought as to why are we so dependant on foreign money? When I said that we should work towards a stronger India, I meant to say that we must, each and everyone of us Indians should harness our potential to the maximum. That way we would not have to be dependant on any one. I am a big fan of Subhash Chandra Bose, but I like to strike when the Iron is Hot. The Iron is far from being Hot right now. Let us just keep working together in a United way and make our country proud.

"It is sad and disgusting that such rascist feelings are still being harboured upon by many Americans today. These "super power people" have forgotten one thing...Respect towards fellow humans...I really feel sorry for these Americans..so literate yet ignorant..so advanced but orthodox....

That's the irony, literacy teaches ignorance.
Advancement is most likely a fallacy, an illusion.

and, America is the perfect example.

Something I noticed on the Power 99 website.Among all the crap they have on their web page, they have posted a 2 line apology - the kind of thing one would write if one were forced by the scruff of their neck.

Just an FYI. I am going to flood their email boxes. Please join in and help. Such condescending behaviour isnt acceptable.

American public by and large is open to other cultures. Indians, please be aware of it. Do not abuse americans in general. It is the freedom of speech and respect for a human-being which these two RJs abused. Let us pity the petty mentality of those, and the few audience members who applauded. Let us not further vitiate the good relations between americans and indians, with caustic comments

Please once again, it is a specific case for which everyone including americans are sad. Lets not start abusing, since most of the people have good attitude, but sometimes, in order to gain popularity they forget sentiments.

Also if we too start scolding, swearing, then there is no difference between the RJs and every other person who is swearing.

Lets look at the issue, more sensitively and sensibly and with a cool attitude.

People out there in America, Please understand that when you are out sourcing your work it dosen't mean that you can talk anything. You are coming here for a mutual benefit for both the sides. Please understand that.

I request the manager of the Star to Suspend her permanently. If people like "Star" don't have the right attitude and can speak dirty language like this, then they are not worth enough to be doing an anchor role in the Entertainment industry.

In my opinion the so called "STAR" IS NOT WORTH A DOLLAR.

well it is still very heartening to see the concerns of so many americans on this issue ..

I would suggest all you guys ,ignore this fool and urge people not to watch his wretched shows,Star thrives on hate , and thats his business , it would be interesting to see what his reaction would be , when people completely ignore him ,rather than abuse him , coz thats what he wants,this guy thrives on hate , if u want to get back on him ignore him.

Ladies and Gentlemen: Please refrain from using from using obscene language. BOTH AMERICANS AND INDIANS HAVE BEEN CURSING EACH OTHER ON THIS BLOG; WHAT IS THE BLOODY USE? LET US NOT CALL EACH OTHER NAMES. LET US NOT STOOP AS LOW AS THE POWER fm GUYS. BY UTTERING PROFANITIES WE ARE JUST ADDING FUEL TO FIRE. All the people in the world are good and their skin color does not matter. In INDIA we have people from different ethnic origin and have been taught to respect each other; so perhaps such an act has invited some violent responses on this blog. As far as calling us BROWNIES is concerned: I can only thank the people for giving us such a sweet name. I HOPE WE CAN ADD SWEETNESS TO YOUR LIVES AS BROWNIES DO! ;)

This is a what happens when Freedom Of Speech is over done, YES this country (USA) gives too much freedom to these low life A-- Hol--, who are jealous of Indian outsourcing.
The reason we stand first in education and status in USA is because we worry about professionalism rather than harassing someone on a live radio.

Posted by: gan at January 11, 2005 11:57 PM

Big deal - what is the fuss about? So what if two DJs found it funny to take off on outsourcing and spew some venom at a call center operator? I am an Indian living in the US, proud of my roots, and never hesitating to identify with where I am from. The fact that two DJs among the thousands in the whole country acted in a rather puerile manner for humor, does not make the RJs, the radio station, or Americans racist.

American humor and the tolerance with it when pushing the edge of the envelope has been rather unique. Larry Flynt, the creator of Hustler magazine pilloried a conservative Christian preacher by insinuating he had sex with his mother in a contrived Vodka ad. The US Supreme court upheld the freedom of expression guaranteed by the First Amendment, and did not award any punitive penalties that were being sought. These DJs are no Larry Flynt, but they are behaving in an extreme fashion intentionally, because they believe it is funny.

Let us remember that in India, Caucasian tourists are stared at, cheated when they are unaware of prevailing rates, oggled upon and voyeured at will. In New Delhi, the capital, we know it is downright dangerous for an attractive young woman to be traveling alone when dark. Yes, in the context of rapidly westernizing India, these incidents are less common (except for the cheating that carries on unabated). But we don't see Indians accused en masse of the crimes of the depraved.

The lady on the receiving end of the call kept her calm and was professional throughout. Her responses should be used to educate other operators on responding to uncouth behavior. Jf this lady has been hurt, she should be spoken to by the DJs. If she is offered an apology and can understand that this was extreme, off-beat humor not personally directed towards her, and can move on, let us stop beating our chests about racism.

Please realize that America is not replete with uber-educated cognoscenti. According to the US Census, in 2002, only 27% of the US population had 4 years of college education. The economic downturn has caused many such people to look at overseas work with resentment, and fear.

We Indians are among the most color conscious and discriminatory people that exist. As an analogy (that captures the relative skin color and economic differences), how do you think Indian employees would react if the Indian economy tanked in concert with all the cool paying work getting spun off to Nigeria? Won't the country collectively exclaim "Aray! Those kallus have taken our jobs!"?

Let us clean home first before acting excessively sensitive!


Posted by: Stan at January 11, 2005 11:59 PM

Thanx to the Ed for publishing all the comments on this issue.Please guys we Indians should not start berating all the Blacks or for that matter Whites just because some crazy sonofabitch made those stupid comments.I know a lot many Indians who are equally racist but that does not mean that their attitude defines my Indianness.Racism in all forms is deplorable but the point is anyone in a position to voice his/her views (even though his own comunity may have borne racism since ages ..... as is the case here for the RJ in question) and insensitive enough ,does so.Lets not start squabbling over other issues but try to help all those who have been posting mails to the concerned authorities.Its good so many people have reacted but the juvenile stuff some have posted shows their immaturity to handle such issues.People who rant the most about taking violent action are the cowards in real life.Do and then air ur enlightened words of hate.
AND JUST TO CLARIFY 99% INDIANS ARE NEITHER COWARDS NOR FOOLS as someone had posted.If this Indian wants to distinguish himself then I guess there are better ways.... but I guess his/her abilities are limited to annointing himself/herself and posting in public forums.

Ed here again.

I understand the anger and the fury generated by this broadcast. But I have already gone through the comments and banned the people who are being extremely hateful towards either Indians, Africans or Americans. If you want to participate, please try and be civil. I can understand hatred against Star or even George Bush. But the last thing I want this place to transform into is a depository to hate.

If you'd like to vent your anger, I understand. But can we steer the conversation towards more productive things? Such as a campaign to inform WWPR advertisers about the kind of programming they'll be supporting?

Your thanks in this regard is most obliged.

Hi again
We must look at the situation objectively. What happened here was some guy who deceided abusing someone in India was a big joke and carried it out.
So we instead of condemning this incident with a cool head we go frothing at the mouth and use FILTHY,ABUSIVE ,RASCIST language which is even worse than the ones that the RJ used.
Condemn the person/s responsible not the whole countryside.
Let the demons off ur back

Posted by: Teena at January 12, 2005 12:45 AM

Enough of US bashing!!!

'Star' is mentally sick. Remember Aaliyah's incident! The only way to teach him a lesson - register your protest (in maximum numbers) with his show sponsors, employers, co-hosts etc. Deliver a message - loud and clear - you simply can't afford to do this with India!

Can someone post the list of Star's present and publicly announced future sponsors, employers, co-hosts etc


Posted by: FBI(Full Blooded Indian) at January 12, 2005 12:47 AM

Posted by: sid@hotmail.com at January 12, 2005 12:54 AM

Ed here again.

The outcry has resulted in Star & Buc Wild being suspended for a day. Thanks in part to your efforts, Power 99 FM received more email and phone calls in the entire station's history.

But this is only the beginning of the fight. Since the two DJs have been repeatedly hateful and since the one day suspension amounts to a consolation prize (Star & Buc Wild were moving out of Philly anyway), the DJs will quite possibly settle into the new routine at 105.1 FM in New York. If there are any able listeners in New York willing to keep track of advertisers, now would be the time to mobilize for a future campaign. Because in light of their history of abusive radio, these two will try again.

Posted by: Ed at January 12, 2005 12:58 AM

Dear Radio Station

U must understand that more than 50% of the world(including most parts of continental Europe) hates America and what it stands for.

I have interacted with many american and I have seen that average American is much more ignorant of the outside world and (is infact really dumb) compared average world citizen.

Today (I am sorry to say this) being 'American' does not evoke any respect. It in fact evokes picture of ignorant people of poor IQ and using filthy language. with very filthy eating habits poor hygeine and cleanliness. Needless to add these guys have no culture. Beleive me this is the impression thrughout the EU and Asia.

These highly paid stupid RJs only bolster that impression. These RJs have shown their real culture in their language.

So for the sake of all fellow American and to save any false pride that u still have, can u air your apologies.

Your apology repeated n no of times over the next one month can go a long way to save your and other American's public image to the rest of the world.

The RJs and other listeners must know that even their jobs are intact only bcos of the people who listen to their stations are gainfully employed and these listeners jobs are stable because some jobs have got outsourced to make American companies more efficient and competitive.
Otherwise these American corporations would still sink further and lose further ground to other globally competitive organization outside the US with better work culture,efficiency and descipline.

Finally it appears to be the silly work of a loser crying foul in a very unsportive manner and exposing himself to redicule further.

USA is run by Immigrants.

The Indians, Japanese, Chinese, the Europeans are the one that are taking USA places.

And don’t you Americans be too confident, there are the Chinese and Indians coming to rip the balls off the American economy.

And thats when the calls, garbage clearing and all sorts of dirty work would be outsourced to USA from India and China.

To all the Americans and other "jerks" who think that skin color matters!!!

I am Victoria Kumar, an ex-call call center employee in Calcutta, INDIA. Ws going through the shit spoken by your RJs' to a lady who was just doing her job.

Call centers are booming in this part of the world due to YOUR ARROGANCE. We make your (the American or other Western country based Companies) life simpler and more cost effective. Instead of making us the object of your hatred, you ppl should start looking at your own backyard!

We don't come to you ppl, YOU GUYS COME TO US for Outsourcing. We didnt ask for job losses in the United States. The Corporate bosses sitting there, decided it. And Finally, we did not decide where to be born.
"The Third World," -- we come from the Third World. If the First World countries cut such a sorry picture as yours' , we are very much pleased to be a part of the Third World.

GOD does not distinguish between Black and White. You do!!

When I was working for a call center here, we used to market products of a Houston,TX based company.

Getting tough people on the line was expected. I also have got some amazingly nice people to talk to, who gave their numbers and invited me to come over in the future.

But, I guess the toughies make a more lasting impression. When they get nasty , they really stir our emotions. Where we come from, or which country do we belong to does not bear any impact on the product we are selling or marketing.

But I guess, this is tough to understand for some of the "Westerners".

As regards the RJs' in question, I guess the Radio Company should stop employing people with a similar mindset.

And the RJs' should be made to slog free for atleast a period of 12 months or have their balls chopped off!!! And the "niggers" should be painted white across the body and be made to parade nude!!!

Posted by: G Bush at January 12, 2005 02:13 AM

The average Americans are jealous for having lost their jobs to Indians. Hence they behave in such a racist and abusive manner to Indians working in call centers. I have witnessed many Americans having an attitude that they are doing charity by outsourcing their operations to India and so they think they have a natural right to be foul and arrogant against those who are only trying to make a living. And on top of that they expect us to be grateful for their "charity". I think the only way to reply these kind of calls is to answer them back in the same vien. That should teach a lesson to those filthy arrogant Americans.

Its not easy losing your job to anyone , and it hurts more especially when it is outsourced far across the world. This is a sensitive issue to most Westerners, but the way an employee was abused racially doing her job is unpardonable. Its not funny .. Its your own loss. Its not easy working against your body clock and listening to people mouthing abuses at the dead of the night. Kudos to Steena for handling it so well, and I guess the RJ should go back to pre-school and learn some basic manners.

It's amazing to see how the american blacks have progressed from slavery and racism to committing racism on other races. These black DJ's reflect today's american blacks. They cannot vent their anger at the whites, so they have to take it out on others like the indians and the chinese.

Anyway, what do these black guys know about the Indian culture to talk about. Remember that these guys came from african jungles as slaves and have not progressed much from the time that they landed in america. They are total barbarians who look like monkeys and gorillas rather than humans, with hair which looks like some sort of tangled mess. And guess what their ancestors did in africa - kill other people and eat them or eat all kinds of animals like snakes, insects and so on. Their relatives in africa still do those things.

Maybe they should work on refining their knowledge and hair style instead of trying to call others rat eaters.

Why are you taking this looser seriously. This is precisely the kind of reception he was looking for, what he needs is to be ignored, actually what he needs is to be placed in an asylum.

I thought the call center girl behaved very decently, personally I would have egged him on till he split an artery. Sounded like someone we should feel pity for, speaks volumes of about his family background and upbringing.

Dear Ed :

My mail to WWPR Power 105.1 FM below -

On your website you profess belief in non-discrimination with regard to race, color, religion, national origin, sex, age, disability, sexual orientation, etc. in the context of employment. Your homepage also has an appeal for relief to Asians affected by tsunami disaster.

Can you demonstrate your good intentions in a bigger scale by stopping the Star & Buc Wild show from January 17th, please? Hope you understand my reason!

Thanks and God Bless,

From the land of Mahatma Gandhi (India) to the land of Martin Luther King (USA)

I really don't understand people who live in a Country like US do stuff like this. Just because of these few assholes so mnay people all over the world do not like Americans. What are you people proud of?? You are proud of taking over a land that was not even yours? You drove away the red Indians from their home. Now it is a land of opportunity for you.
If you guys can't compete in a competition, just sit on your butt , drink beer, and watch sports and be AMerican.

To Star & Buc Wild - In your own language:

You fucking bastard.. Looks like you are very much frustrated with the jobs outsourcing to other countries.. Is that right you mother fucker!! It looks like your sister or mother lost a job due to outsourcing and became a prostitute to earn for her living.. you son of a bith.. You bastard.. You pimp...

You call some other person as Rat-eater.. You are a shit eater. You eat your own shit for breakfast everyday.. You eat your colleagues shit for lunch and finally you eat your neighbours shit for dinner.. You ass-hole..

You are not eligible to live on this world.. You should die in the most ugliest fashion.. your body should be eaten away by dogs and vultures.. You rotten fucker..

I seriously pray that you should die asap..

Go and drink the pee of your dog.. you nasty bastard..

Posted by: This Bastard's Death Wisher at January 12, 2005 04:57 AM

Sadddened immensely at such outpouring of vitriolic hate. Arent we all guilty of the same things we are trying to accuse someone of?

What higher moral grounds do we maintain to preach to someone when someone paints an entire continent (Africa) based on one person. Is this Star fellow that important? Arent we giving him more importance and representation than is due.

Ah well.....

Peace and Love

Posted by: neurojava at January 12, 2005 05:15 AM

I checked out the racist bullshit what Americans have started as they dont wanna work and neither want anyone to get the work, these racist CUNTS should be killed as they were in sept 9/11 by ARABS but now this time by INDIANS.
I will make sure that i will kill atleast one American in india if i see him on the streets and will make sure i make him eat MY SHIT before killing those racist cunts who have come to my country to get their IT bullshit work to be done.
I am a supporter of Human rights and will see to it that this time no peace but KILL ANY AMERICAN IF U SEE THEM ON THE STREETS OF INDIA.

I would even call indians as pussies as they fight in between themselves and not with these ouside bastards, the POLITICIANS IN INDIA R THE BIGGEST PUSSIES and fuckin money eaters and they know nothing they should be shot dead on the streets of india as they have to protest against these racist comments.

All motherfucking Americans u have called trouble to ur country and there will be a big disaster again and many white cunts will die and this time noone is gonna cry r u cunts.

These two hosts and all those who laughed at that conversation or any such converstation are mentally ill and they need to consult a psychiatrist immediately or else commit suicide and die.

In any other country such guys would have been admitted in a mental asylum or else they would have been killed but definitely they would not have been allowed to live alongwith other citizens in a civilized society.

Am disgusted at reading all this hate stuff. Neurojava, you are bingo!!. I guess we should have self retrospection of sorts to check out how much of trash that is residing inside of us that is manifesting in this form. I guess Star and Buc must be happy at getting so much unwarranted publicity. Lastly, please don't divide humans on race, creed or color. We have suffered enough for last 21 centuries. Lets not repeat the mistakes of the past..
Hope to see some peace soon..

Its not about giving Bad words... its about Understanding the reason behind it and how we can resolve it and stop it from happening in Future.

Yes we dont have to get to their level for them to understand us.

It certainly is a shameful conduct of Star and Bucwild towards an Indian girl working on a call centre.

Posted by: Another Indian at January 12, 2005 07:06 AM

Though it's sad but, I must agree that most American people agree with Star & Buck.
These pathetic people are hypocrites.

They teach one one thing and do another(history and present is the proof).Americans say they support democracy but, in-fact they support tyranny and dictatorship(Saudi Arabia, Pakistan, Iraq 'Saddam Hussein' yeah America supported supported when they felt it suited them,Afghanistan - 'Taliban created by full support of USA' to name a few). Every aspect of life you can see this hypocrisy and discrimination. See how biased the American media is, no report of this incident. NO MEDIA COVERAGE by being silent they only show their selective support to RACISM.

OK enough of wining lets not sit idle. But return the favor.....sitting idle with belief false, dubious principles will lead us no where [after 50 years of independence size:power ratio (economic/political/military) is sad proof]. We should learn to stand up and fight back.
Indians excel in every field appx. 30% of NASA staff consists of INDIANS/INDIAN origins, INDIANS are big & important part of US silicon valley (from hotmail to sun micro systems), INDIANS in America are leading USA into nano-technology in big way. INDIANS & Chinese (especially) dominate research done in universities [primary source of development & research for all big defense companies and DOD]. We as individuals are progressing very well but collectively we are not able to do anything bcos we are still having the hangover of being ruled we should get out of that mindset. We must participate in US politics especially second generation INDIANS in USA so we gain political clout like the JEWISH community we should look at the JEWISH community and try to learn from them. THE BOTTOM LINE is MONEY RESPECTS MONEY, STRENGTH RESPECTS STRENGTH. So if we keep idle and keep whining we will be standing we are even after a century.

So stand up and return the favor to these M'fkers.

We should not take crap from anybody even if it is USA. Those m'fker's forget that its a 2 way street. There are millions of INDIANS out here in USA. So lets also spare 10 minutes every day and return the favor and lets see what the fk they r going to do about it.

So c'mon every body out there lets return the favor to the americans and let give them the taste of their own medicine and call its f'kin funny.

Posted by: Ashwini at January 12, 2005 08:58 AM

If only god had given some brains to Star and Buc. The funniest thing is that such words came from a person whose people were treated like slaves few years back. Its like cutting your own legs with an axe in your hand. Such people in limelight try to take the world back to dark age. Americans wake up and take their mic away.

WARNING TO STAR and BUC: 1 billion people in this world already hate you. Dont you come close to any of them.

For those concerned about outsourcing, make your government and your companies listen to your causes. It has nothing to do with india, china , phillipines or vietnam.

Posted by: a human at January 12, 2005 09:06 AM

I think People like Star and buc wild and their other dirty half breed clan are bcs and mcs ,(Indians wld have understood this)hahahha.Its actually not their fault,its the bloody American producer n director, sons of bitches who aired it. Bloody dark and white trash,thats what they are.hahahah.Indians are far more superior and thats what these motherfuckers know by sure,no wonder the jealousy and the petty shit they are trying.I hope these rats read it.

Posted by: Indian at January 12, 2005 09:07 AM

Star's Profile
His Mother would have been fucked by atleast 20 people by the time she was 12 and then pregnent with this moron,so typically star doesnt know who is father is or if he does i am pretty sure he is in jail.
stars mother abandoned him when he was one and he was raised on the street peddling drugs and eating from the garbage.
so star grew up never whent to school, I am sure he didnt know what the word "out sourcing" ment. most of thes fucks cant even speak english properly just like their president.
thus Star see all the indian who come to his country, work hard make 100 times more money than the people from his 'hood who still beg, steal, peddle, fuck their mothers, and end up in jail anyway, does this to satisfy his petty ego.

Posted by: Azzkikr at January 12, 2005 09:09 AM

The condemnation of this deplorable behavior by all decent people, Americans and Indians, should send the right message to the people who make money from such atrocious behavior.

It is important to understand that the behavior of the RJ is not indicative of general American behavior. Likewise the abusive posts of some Indians should not be construed as indicative of Indians in general.

Please restrain yourself from posting abusive matter on the board. It helps no one but denigrate yourself to the level of the person you seek to condemn.

Posted by: Disgusted_Indian at January 12, 2005 09:25 AM

Ed -

A sincere request - please take this post off your blog or at least take off the comments associated with it.
I hate to bother you with this but looks like this forum is being abused more than anything worthwhile being offered.

As an Indian, I don't think this kind of hatred and despicable behavior would be endorsed by any other Indian except the ones who take perverse pleasure in writing this. You are cowards if you don't have the b**ls to go out in the open with your protest but rather vent your frustations behind the safety of someone else's blog!

Shame on you guys!! You are only jeopardizing any chances that we may have to expect an apology and further action on the RJ's in question!!

this unfathomable action should not be pardoned.How can somebody get away like this?Just becuase some people are capable enough to get work outsourced from North America, doesnt mean they will be subjugated to such utter nonsense from absolute idiots like these two.
