Eric Deters, a 700 WLW-AM personality and Northern Kentucky lawyer, is drawing criticism for a recent Internet video in which he said, “If you want to conquer an African nation, send white women and pot.”
Deters told The Cincinnati Enquirer the video, during which he also said, “I understand black culture,” was shot earlier this week.
Deters shoots a series of video blogs each week – five to 10 at a time – and they are posted each day on his Facebook page.
After shooting the series, he told his video guy that they shouldn’t post that one.
“I said, ‘We can’t post that one, that goes too far,’” he said.
But the video guy sent the files to Deters’ Web technician with that one included, so it was posted.
“I’m sure he just forgot about it,” he said.
Deters learned the video was posted Thursday when he got a call from a friend whose wife is black asking him how he could post such a thing.
“It wasn’t even supposed to be up in the first freaking place,” he said.
The video was quickly taken down, Deters said.
Fox 19 In Cincy reports The NAACP has seen Deters comments and have been in contact with 700 WLW.
