This is the hateful and racist commentary from Raleigh's G105 DJ Bob Dumas commentary about a then-upcoming wedding of one of their interns who is married to a Lumbee Indian back in 2008:

Bob Dumas April 2008:
"Did you tell your parents, 'hey, at least he's not black?'" Dumas asked during the broadcast. "After you guys get married are you going to have a tee-pee warming party? A tee-pee warming party? I hear Pottery Barn is making great stuff for tee-pees."-

Here's more despicable racism of Bob Dumas:

How could this be OK?
That was the fundamental question when a Lumbee friend called last week, outraged, after her high school-age daughter heard a trio of shock jocks trashing the tribe on Raleigh’s WDCG (105 FM).
Now, the first thing that might come to mind is last year’s April fool, Don Imus, and the "nappy-headed hos" remark that earned him a you-know-what-storm and cost him his CBS Radio show.
But if you listened to last week’s "Bob & the Showgram" segment — which remained up on the G-105 Web site for several days until cooler heads prevailed — some differences became apparent.
First, Imus’ callous comments:
a) Were in passing, off the cuff.
b) Lasted less than a minute.
c) Forced Imus off the air despite several profuse apologies from Imus (who admitted his words were "racist and abhorrent"), a meeting with the Rutgers women and an appearance on the Rev. Al Sharpton’s show.
In contrast, the G-105 comments:
a) Were a clearly planned segment, with prepared background sound effects and traditional Native American music, in which the three white morning hosts derided an intern they called "White Girl" about her upcoming wedding to her Lumbee fiance.
b) Lasted 14 minutes, 33 seconds.
c) Brought a vague apology from the station manager "to any listener that may have found remarks or recordings played Tuesday, April 1st, 2008, during Bob and the Showgram to be offensive, derogatory or insensitive," and, a week later, resulted in a three-day suspension for the hosts.
So what, exactly, did they say, in remarks that Ruth Revels, founder of the Guilford Native American Association, called "the worst I’ve heard in all my years" of involvement?
The segment, led by DJ Bob Dumas, began as banter with a departing station intern who said she was leaving to get married. After the unnamed intern mentioned that she was marrying a Lumbee, stock sound effects such as fake "woo-woo-woo" Indian chants played in the background.
Dumas and his co-hosts quizzed the intern at length about her fiance, asking whether he was "full-blooded" and whether the couple planned to have a "teepee warming" after the wedding and suggesting she tell her parents, "At least he’s not black."
After making fun of the intern, who laughed along, Dumas and his co-hosts ridiculed Indians in general as "lazy" and Lumbees specifically as "inbred."
It was only after Greg Richardson, executive director of the N.C. Commission of Indian Affairs, on Wednesday demanded the hosts be fired that the station announced the suspension — eight days after the show aired.
But back to the original question from my friend, who was so angry at what her daughter heard that she was practically in tears: How could this be OK? And why was the reaction so lukewarm compared to Imus?
One reason, of course, is that Imus is national. Even though the Rutgers players don’t listen to his show, they soon got wind of it. But there’s a more fundamental difference: Lumbees are a minority’s minority.
True, they are the largest tribe east of the Mississippi, but there are only 50,000 of them in the state and only about 5,000 here in Guilford County. They have been invisible, easy to ignore. Which, incidentally, explains why they are still waiting for federal recognition after 120 years.
It also explains why someone such as Bob Dumas felt safe saying the things he said — statements he would never dare insert the word "black" into, at least not on the air.
Then again, cowards never pick on anyone their own size.

More of his racist misogyny against American Indians and White women who date/marry outside of their race:
Dumas' bigoted view of Asian women:
"Popular morning radio host Bob Dumas angered another constituency this month when he declared Asian-American women unattractive.
Dumas, who infuriated bicyclists last year with a broadcast that included jokes about running cyclists off the road, has sparked another crusade, this time by local Asian-Americans, to persuade advertisers to drop WDCG's "The Bob & Madison Showgram." The local UPN affiliate has pulled its sponsorship of the show.
A number of Asian-Americans in the Triangle heard about the Feb. 10 broadcast through a widely circulated e-mail calling Dumas' comments racist and asking advertisers to stop supporting the show.
Dumas encouraged listeners to send in pictures of Asian women, and predicted that none of them would be attractive.
"If he just wanted to get attention from the listeners, he succeeded, but unfortunately, it's in a negative way," said Rachel Chao, who lives in Cary and works in contract financing. "If he really thinks Asian-Americans are not attractive, then he has not seen enough or he has vision problems."
Raising hackles appears to be in Dumas' job description. In September, local bicyclists accused WDCG (better known as G105) and its owner, Clear Channel Communications, of encouraging violence against bicyclists. Two sponsors canceled their advertising on the show in protest, and station officials apologized and agreed to broadcast announcements about bicycle safety.This time, G105 backed up Dumas."
Despicable "closet racist" Richard Cohen
Richard Cohen November 2012:
"Today’s GOP is not racist, as Harry Belafonte alleged about the tea party, but it is deeply troubled — about the expansion of government, about immigration, about secularism, about the mainstreaming of what used to be the avant-garde. People with conventional views must repress a gag reflex when considering the mayor-elect of New York — a white man married to a black woman and with two biracial children. (Should I mention that Bill De Blasio’s wife, Chirlane McCray, used to be a lesbian?) This family represents the cultural changes that have enveloped parts — but not all — of America. To cultural conservatives, this doesn’t look like their country at all."-
Richard Cohen, Washington Post Columnist
Here's more about his abysmal record on race and gender from Think Progress:
Bob and Richard had made racist, sexist comments during the past 10-30 years in the media. They've been given a pass from the mainstream media during the same amount of time. All they did were apologize, pay a fine, then repeat. That's the beauty of white privilege. They're currently on the payrolls of both WaPo and Clear Channel and are staying put. The same could be applied Bill O'Reilly, Rush Limbaugh, Bill Maher, Don Imus, Matthew Drudge, Ann Coulter, etc. They continue to spew hateful views concerning people of Color, working class/poor people, immigrants/foreigners, women in general, feminists in particular, interracial/inter ethnic relationships, etc.
