Would station tell jokes about other ethnicities?
We are totally insulted by the behavior of 97 Rock and its airing of Polish jokes on Dyngus Day. Not only did the announcers tell these jokes, they also asked their listeners to call in with Polish jokes.
We, as Polish-Americans, find nothing funny about this kind of broadcasting. We would like to see the local reaction if this radio station told “jokes” about African-Americans, Jewish-Americans or Muslim-Americans. We know what the reaction would be. The large Polish-American community in Erie County deserves more respect than that shown by 97 Rock.
