Dog Keeps Praying For Forgiveness

12/13/2007 1:35 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Duane "Dog" Chapman is going to some serious lengths in his quest for forgiveness, landing in New York for a dinner with African-American leaders. The Big Apple's a long way from the Big Island, brother!

CORE -- the Congress of Racial Equality --and its chairman Roy Innes invited Chapman and his wife Beth to New York to discuss plans for an upcoming Martin Luther King, Jr. Day event that they've invited Dog to speak at.

Dog has been on a mission of forgiveness since a private conversation was made public last month.

What happened to the constitution and free speech? Granted it's a harsh word but can we say censorship?
How come we can make fun of blondes and FAT people but GOD FORBID we say anything out of turn about races....
This country needs to relax.

Dog, you are white trash. But we all were once. Asking forgiveness takes humility. Take care of our Vets people!

Everyone is a work in progress. As long as you realize you were wrong and amend yourself, you are OK by me. But calling ANYONE a racial slur is NOT COOL. horrible horrible horrible. His son definitely showed daddy.

This guy needs a better PR person. He should call Martha Steward and ask for the name of hers.

I'm behind you all the way, Mr Chapman. Do what you can to make amends, then leave it behind you and go on with your work. You have an important contribution to make and people who need you. I can accept the fact that you are not perfect, not one of us are. Please allow this whole incident to make you stronger and wiser. Hopefully we all can learn something from this, as well. God bless you and your family and all you try to do.

WHAT IS THE RUSH    

DOG HOW OBVIOUS CAN U B

Why is it, when someone goes nuts w/ a so called racist rant, the next thing you see is them spending every waking moment trying to show how much they love the black race? They want to be buried with them, like Dog said, they eat with them, they become their best buddies, they go back in history and find a black relative. THIS IS A JOKE, HE IS TRYING TO SAVE HIS ASS, SHOW, MONEY AND REP. THAT IS ALL. BE HONEST, FESS UP, GO ON AND STOP THE IN YOUR FACE I LOVE BLACK ROUTINE. IF YOU LOVED THEM SO MUCH BEFORE, YOU WOULD HAVE SPOKE DIFFERENT ON THE PHONE.

AND YOUR SON, DID A BAD, BAD, THING, DOING THIS TO HIS OWN DAD, BE IT RIGHT OR WRONG. WHERE IS REV. AL SHARPTON, JESSIE JACKSON, AND THE REST OF THE MAKE TROUBLE GANG?
