Rene Sta. Cruz hosts the most racist show on Philippine radio. His show - every weekdays from 11:00 -12:oo noon on DZBB - makes fun of the Bisaya people - their regional accent and pronunciation and his creation, Bai, stereotypes the Bisaya people as backward and uneducated. We are in the 21st century! Obviously, this Rene Sta. Cruz guy and the management of Radio GMA are the backward types since they insist on age-old racism as humor. These people make me sick. Ever since I heard this show I've been avoiding it - besides Rene's analysis could be done by anyone. It is nothing special nor in-depth. I hope the law pending in Philippine Congress against making fun of people's regional accents get passed so Rene Sta. Cruz and his RGMA staff will be the first ones jailed.
