97.9 WGRD: Radio, Misogyny, & Sexism in Grand Rapids

This is a set of data and resources that accompany an article written by Media Mouse on Grand Rapids alternative rock station WGRD’s use of sexism and misogyny to appeal to male listeners.

David Fox plays a parody song about the Dubai Ports World deal to take over the United States’ ports. The song, set to the tune of the Backstreet Boys’ “Backstreet’s Back” and titled “Dubai’s Back Alright” features numerous racist stereotypes about Arabs that draws connections between all Arabs and Al Qaida as well as portraying Arabs in a sterotypical way through offensive accents. Among the offensive lines are “Hello Al Qaida we’ll let you in, so bring your guns and bombs,” “bring Punjab Tom,” and “They could hire Americans to guard their own ports, but instead they are going to hire Arabs?
