Roy Innis of Congress of Racial Equality (CORE) Met with Dog Yesterday

Calls Duane “Dog” Chapman a “Man’s Man”

Words Mean Something and Can Hurt

Innis once took Freedom Rides Across the South, Now Embarks on a Different Ride: mentoring the chastised star of the “Dog the Bounty Hunter” TV Series, Duane Chapman.
Another black group has reached out a hand to help and offered a voice to further the education of Duane “Dog” Chapman.

This time, it’s one of America’s oldest civil rights groups, C.O.R.E. (Congress of Racial Equality). Civil rights pioneer, Roy Innis, met with Duane “Dog” Chapman and members of his family for consultation and education/mentoring.

Roy Innis, National Chairman of CORE, met with “Dog, the Bounty Hunter” on Tuesday, December 11 at noon at the CORE national headquarters in New York City. Innis has agreed to mentor Chapman in his efforts to seek reconciliation and atonement for his repeated and careless use of the “N word.”DBKP got to talk a bit with CORE spokesman, Brian McLaughlin.

According to McLaughlin, Dog met with Innis and CORE staff and explained about his life, background and about his “not wanting to hurt anybody with my words”.

“This was a good step forward for him–to be able to continue on the path of changing some offensive behavior.”

“Duane Chapman was contrite and offered no excuses. He didn’t try to waffle. He was genuine. He said ‘I was wrong’. The feeling here was that Dog was a ‘man’s man’ by owning up to his actions and wanting to change.”Read the rest of the story:
