Dr Laura N Word, (The Huffington Post) — Dr. Laura Schlessinger has apologized after his shocking tirade on the radio program this week during which she said the n-word 11 times in the course of five minutes.
In the conversation on Tuesday with a black woman caller who complained of her husband and his white supremacist friends speak, Schlessinger said
Black guys use it all the time. Turn on HBO and listen to a black comic, and all you hear is n *****. ****, *****, n I do not understand. If someone without enough melanin to say, is a horrible thing. But when people say black, is affectionate. It is very confusing.
LISTEN (via MediaMatters):
After a pause, the caller said he was appalled by the use of the word Schlessinger.
“Ah, I guess I do not see or hear any HBO black comedy” he said. “My dear, the point I am trying to do … we have a black man as president and we have more complaints about racism than ever. I think that’s funny.”
Schlessinger and the caller then got into an exchange on the use of the word:
CALLER: Is it OK to say that word? Is it ever OK to say that word?
DR. LAURA: It depends on how you say. Black guys talking to each other seem to think is right.
CALLER: But you’re not black, not black, my husband is white.
DR. LAURA: Oh, I see, so that a word is limited to the race. I have it. You can not do much about it.
CALLER: I can not believe someone like you are spitting on the radio the word ***** No, and I hope everyone heard it.
DR. LAURA: Do not throw the n ***** word!
CALLER: You said “No *****, n *****, n *****” I hope everyone heard it.
DR. LAURA: Yes they did, and I’ll say it again: nnn *****, *****, ***** is what you hear on HBO.
DR. LAURA: Why do not you let me finish a sentence? Do not take things out of context. I NAACP, leave them in their context.
“If you are hypersensitive to the color and have a sense of humor, do not marry outside their race,” Schlessinger said after hanging up with the caller.

She apologized the next day, opening his show with an apology.
“Yesterday, I did things wrong,” he said. “I had no intention of hurting people, but I did. And that’s the worst thing I’ve done. I was trying to make a philosophical point, and articulated the” n “word all the way out – more than a time. And what was wrong. I’ll say it again – what was wrong. ”
Schlessinger said [she "was so upset that] could not finish the show.”
“I took off the air at the end of the hour,” he said. “I had to finish the hour, because 20 minutes of dead air does not work. I’m sorry. And it just will not happen again.”
