On the August 10 edition of her syndicated radio show, Dr. Laura Schlessinger launched a racially-charged rant after taking a call from a Black woman who wanted "advice" on how to deal with racist remarks made by her White husband's friends.Schlessinger used the "n-word" at least 11 times.
Listen to the exchange WHEN YOU JUMP ...
Some of the highlights:
CALLER: Is it OK to say that word? Is it ever OK to say that word?
SCHLESSINGER: It's -- it depends how it's said. Black guys talking to each other seem to think it's OK.
CALLER: But you're not black. They're not black. My husband is white.
SCHLESSINGER: Oh, I see. So, a word is restricted to race. Got it. Can't do much about that.
CALLER: I can't believe someone like you is on the radio spewing out the "nigger" word.
SCHLESSINGER: I didn't spew out the "nigger" word.
CALLER: You said, "Nigger, nigger, nigger.... I hope everybody heard it.
SCHLESSINGER: They did, and I'll say it again ... nigger, nigger, nigger is what you hear on HB --
CALLER: So what makes it --
SCHLESSINGER: Why don't you let me finish a sentence?
SCHLESSINGER: Don't take things out of context. Don't double N -- NAACP me.
Schlessinger also suggested you shouldn't "marry out of your race" if you "don't have a sense of humor" and blamed "Black activists" for "hyper-sensitivity".
The radio host , who has previously called gays "deviant" and "dysfunctional', was forced to issue a boiler-plate "apology" and she claims she was "attempting to make a philosophical point." Read the apology HERE.
A very good friend of mine worked on the Dr. Laura Show for several years. From what I remember of her descriptions of Laura, this sounds about right. Listen to the "philosophical" racial rants AFTER THE JUMP ...
