ALLENTOWN, Pa. — A radio station fired its longtime morning DJ Wednesday after he encouraged listeners to repeat talk-show host Don Imus' racially charged comments in an on-air contest.

Gary Smith told WSBG-FM listeners to call and say "I'm a nappy-headed ho" for Tuesday's "Phrase that Pays" contest, said Rick Musselman, executive vice president of station owner Nassau Broadcasting Partners L.P.

Musselman said three of the listeners who called were awarded tickets to a NASCAR promotion at a local club.

I don't know which is worse.

The guy pulling the stunt, or the station firing him.

This is going to turn into an all-out race war if we're not careful.

....and a notice to my ebony friends should that occur, I aint' no Reginald Denny

We're always going to have people in society with a "fringe" sense of humor. Leave them alone, and let them continue their idiocy in peace. Otherwise, a race war will ensue, and frankly, blacks are outnumbered.

We'll always have folks like Don Imus and Martin Lawrence, among others, that will get cheap laughs off racial differences. Let it go.
