Thank you for your email. We take your concerns very seriously. Over the last few months, Duane "Dog" Chapman has taken and continues to take the appropriate steps in reaching out to several African American organizations in an effort to educate himself and make amends for his comments. The decision to bring Dog the Bounty Hunter back on the air was one made after much consideration and conversations with many community leaders. Since the premise of Dog the Bounty Hunter is about second chances - we have decided to give him one. We truly feel that the time is right for Dog and his team to return to the air. Thank you.

Please refrain from putting the show on the air. Since there are so few African Americans on the air ,you could find one to put in his place,thank you

This is my response from A&E, what do you think ?

I say good for AE, its time to move forward and learn from mistakes. DOG helps a lot of kids understand how bad drugs are. He is different, but he deserves another chance. That was a private conversation. How many of us , if every word we said was taped, would not look foolish. GOOD for AE, show is back, time to move on. Charlie Sheen used the N word, move on to him as your cause of the month
