Duane “Dog the Bounty Hunter” Chapman recently sat down with Entertainment Tonight’s Kevin Frazier, where he
addressed his daughter’s claims that he’s racist.
He stated, “I have never been a racist. I’m 33 1/2 percent Apache.” Dog then addressed a leaked phone call with his
son, where he used the n-word six times, stating, “I thought I had a pass in the Black tribe to use it, kind of like
After Dog stated that saying the n-word is his “Achilles heel,” he added, “I had just gotten out of prison in 1979 after
spending 18 months in Texas, and it was probably three-quarters from the Black tribe. So, that was a word that we
used back and forth as maybe a compliment. My pass expired for using it, but no one told me that. To say a racist
name doesn’t qualify to make you a racist.”
When Frazier told Dog, “If you use that word, and you use it in your regular everyday life, it makes you a racist,” Dog
responded with, “I have more Black friends than Eminem.”
Frazier then told Dog, “That is the proximity argument. ‘I have lots of Black friends, so that should make me okay
with Black people.'” You can hear the full conversation above.
