HAITIANS URGE FCC TO OUST HOST OF RADIO TALK PROGRAM
Sun-Sentinel – Wednesday, June 17, 1987
Author: By TOM LASSITER, Staff Writer
A group of Haitians will turn to the Federal Communications Commission in their fight to have a radio talk show host ousted for on-the-air comments considered disparaging by the group.
”Yes, for him it might have been a joke, but the way the man chose to speak about Haitian people was not a joke to us,” Jean Claude Exulien said of WINZ- AM (940) talk show host Stan Major .
About 450 Haitians protested outside the WINZ studios on Saturday, while inside Major apologized on the air for comments he said were made tongue-in- cheek in response to a caller’s remarks.
Exulien, who helped organize the protest by the Haitian Anti-defamation Committee, said the group met Monday evening and decided to draft a complaint to the FCC about the remarks Major made during his June 9 show.
”Our response is, it’s over,” Marc Kuhn, WINZ program director, said Tuesday.
”It’s over,” Kuhn repeated when asked if the station would agree to the anti-defamation committee’s request for a tape of Major’s comments.
Exulien said the group also is planning to gather signatures on petitions protesting the remarks that will accompany the complaint letter to the FCC.
Protest organizers at Saturday’s demonstration said Major described Haitians as smelly, a bunch of animals and people who pick through garbage.
