Citing 'racist views,' tribe cancels Nugent show

WORLEY, Idaho (AP) — A Native American tribe has canceled an Aug. 4 concert by Ted Nugent at its casino. The Coeur d'Alene Tribe on Monday said that the cancellation of the concert at the casino in Worley was because of what it called the rocker's "racist and hate-filled remarks." The tribe says it booked Nugent without realizing he espoused "racist attitudes and views." The tribe did not detail which of Nugent's specific views it opposes. Officials for Nugent's music management company were out of the office on Monday and not available for comment. Nugent in the past has referred to President Barack Obama as a "subhuman mongrel." Nugent later apologized "for using the street fight terminology of subhuman mongrel." But he maintained that Obama was a "liar" violating the Constitution.
