Racism in Morgantown WV
- Racism in Morgantown WV - Will he slither back?
Dear Friends and Supporters: Thanks to everyone, home and
who have supported the Native American community in fighting
sexism and violence in Morgantown, WV. As many of you know,
community is under attack by two talkshow hosts on local radio
WAJR. We have been called "redskins and morons". The main
Stallings, claims it was all "tongue in cheek". However his cohort
Murray recently supported a demonstration which degraded our
our people. They have targeted others as well using terms like"
lips-broad noses and nappy hair". We have heard homophobic
well. Your letters and calls have been overwhelming, however
news media is dominated by Greer Industries owner of WAJR
County's largest newspaper The Dominion Post. They are
issue doesn't exist. They are forcing our hand to take stronger
We are now appealing to Govt. and community organizations to
pressure on Greer Industries to bounce this racist duo out on
heads. Please write new letters and/or forward your previous
City of Morgantown at <cityclerk@...> and to
<info@...> others to cc are <jmanilla@...>,
<teresamiller@...>; of course cc everything to WAJR
You can also phone the Morgantown Chamber of Commerce
E <newsroom@...> and demand this issue be
week Stallings took an unexpected vacation. We assume it was
until this blows over. We think he'll try and slither back Monday
they think we will go away. Lets show them we can wait them
racists stench last a long time.
A Funny side note: Stallings recently called Matt Sherman of The
American Indian Movement a "fraud and charlatan". Stallings
"Sherman said he helped keep Walmart out of Asheville NC." (
an advisor) Stallings had a flunky call the Asheville, NC Chamber
Commerce and ask the receptionist if she'd every heard of Matt
Stallings claimed she said "no." Based on that, Stallings called
a charlatan and fraud. We thought we would try the same thing.
we called the Morgantown Chamber of Commerce and asked if
heard of Jim Stallings (a DJ in Morgantown for over 12 years)
you'd enjoy that.
Thanks for your continued help
