Dr. Laura, (Mediaite)The biggest summer of racial tension since 1994 continues, this time with a strange rant, n-word laden with what has been generally perceived as a fairly innocuous source: Dr. Laura Schlessinger. Speaking to the black caller who asked for advice on handling racial tensions with her white husband, Dr. Laura uses the offending word eleven times and finally tells the caller that if she “has no meaning of humor, “should not” marry outside their race. ”
The caller explained that he was starting to grow “bitter” with her husband because he seemed comfortable with a neighbor continually making racist comments about her. When asked to give an example, the caller said Schlessinger who had used the n-word, to which she replied that he saw a problem with that. “Black Boys,” he said, “use it all the time. Turn on HBO, listen to a black comic, and all you hear is n * gger, n * gger, n * gger.” Then, of course, the conversation turned inevitably (and uncomfortably) to Barack Obama, Schlessinger continuing: “We have a black man as president and we have more complaints about racism than ever.”
After the caller expressed some discomfort with the tone of the comments Schlessinger, host rebuked him, telling him not to “NAACP I” [according to the dictionary, the proper term is Breitbart] and, finally, “if you are hypersensitive than on color, and have no sense of humor, do not marry outside their race. “Wow. Not that Dr. Laura has not gotten into trouble by insensitive comments before: In 2002, Schlessinger was found in hot water for calling hmosxlity “a biological error.” That, however, was not addressed to a specific caller, nor the use of specific insults.
Dr. Laura‘s tirade came to prime time tonight thanks to CNN’s Rick Sanchez, who led his program from 20:00 to history, ahead of The O’Reilly Factor (leader, with a discussion of 14th Amendment) and Bill back (leader, with an interview with an American mechanic).
