A radio host whose show was once declared a platform for "hate speech" is back in headlines this week following a despicably racist rant aimed at Waka Flocka. KQQZ (1190 AM) talker Bob Romanik, in response to Waka Flocka's recent and practical usage of a Trump jersey as an ass-wiping device, called the "Was My Dawg" artist a "greasy black n***** son of a bitch" during a broadcast last month.
The so-called "Grim Reaper of St. Louis Radio" reportedly made the comments during his Jan. 19 broadcast, according to the Riverfront Times. A listener recorded a portion of the comments and shared them to YouTube:
"Waka Flocka, he took a good crap on our president-elect's shirt," Romanik said. "Our white president. Now if it had been another black man — you think, you think that Trump has done anything to this man? Trump will probably do more for this black n***** than Obama's ever done for the proud black community. In my opinion of course. Think about it! We're talking about Waka Flocka, that greasy black n***** son of a bitch."
Earlier this week, Romanik actually tried to defend his usage of the word "n*****" by kicking off his show with some nonsense about "black-on-black crime." According to a separate report from the Riverfront Times, Romanik also took issue with news articles covering his initial comments aimed at Waka Flocka.
Romanik repeatedly used the slur "f*****" when describing County Board Chairman Mark Kern in November 2016, prompting the St. Louis Post-Dispatch to urge listeners and readers to contact the Federal Communications Commission with hate speech complaints. Following his racist comments on Waka Floka, those calls have been renewed.
