Today at ten o'clock Indian leaders in Minnesota are going to protest KQRS on-air remarks about the Red Lake and Shakopee Mdewakanton Sioux Tribes. KQRS has a history of racist trash talk not only against Native Americans but other minority groups:
"Minority groups have long criticized Barnard and his crew for their on-air banter.
In the late 1990s, members of the Somali community picketed over Barnard and Co.'s mocking of Somali dialects after a Somali cabdriver was slain. Before that, the Asian-American community was irate when Barnard and his co-hosts made fun of a teenage Hmong girl who was charged with killing her newborn son.
They said of her potential $10,000 fine: "That's a lot of eggrolls."
