Appology for defaming phrase on the FOX Network

Dear Mr. Earley, I am writing to express my strongest possible objection against a defaming phrase that appeared recently on the Fox Network show \"BACK TO YOU\". The statement, made by one of the characters, was directed at people of Polish descent \" is in your Polish blood, like kielbasa, like collaboration with the Nazis\". The utterance was followed by a recorded laugh track presumably from a studio audience. This insulting sentence shows either a total lack of basic historical and political knowledge or a purposeful defamation of one of the most heroic nations that lost millions of people fighting against Germany while others were waiting and watching. As one of the 10 million of Polish Americans, I request full apology from the President of the Fox Network, its management and writers with information about personal decisions regarding the people responsible for these derogatory and racist statements. Sincerely,


Marek Stepien President of the Polish Association in Portland, Oregon

We have been to Poland three times and are delighted by the Poles we've met. We've studied their history and certainly disagree with the line from "Back to You that indicates collabaration with Nazis. We are appalled at this reference which could affect Americans unfamiliar with Poland and Polish history. We have spread the word about this tasteless remark and will do all we can to boycott Fox Network and the show's sponsers.
