Default Dr. Laura is quitting because of complaints about her N-bombs?? WTF.

I like Dr. Laura. But she's quitting because of all the backlash over saying:

Talking to a caller:

""Black guys use it all the time. Turn on HBO and listen to a black comic, and all you hear is "insert racial slur here" , nigger, nigger. I don't get it. If anybody without enough melanin says it, it's a horrible thing. But when black people say it, it's affectionate.""


You can listen here, it's the last part of the first video.

oh al sharpton was all over it! makes me laugh that when someone says any black racial slur he's the first one there and wants an apology on national television.. yet she didn't say it to him. nor did kramer, nor did the the "nappy headed hoes" radio guy. yet that fat bastard is there saying HE was offended. i'd love for one of these national televsion "appologies" to turn on his ass and the person lets loose on his big fat black ass.

this race shit anymore is stupid.. every race get speical attention other than us white people. i thought we were all created equal? and we are all equal so says the constution? seems to me than any white person has less rights than a minority.. anything we say is condemable. miss black america? where teh miss white america? NAACP? wheres the NAAWP? it's all one sided bullshit because we did them a favor.. they were slaves when our ancestors bought them. their own countrymen had put them into slavery. americans didn't go to africa with a net. and if i remember right didn't the emancipation ploclamation give them freedom? didn't the civil rights acts of the 60's give them everything we have? and since they've gotten more? i say show me an african slave working in a cotton field today... and the federal goverment can write him a million dollar check.. hell make it 10 million.. obama loves to give money away... the japanese were forced into camps in this country during WWII and you never hear mention of that? the chinese and mexican were slaves or damn near. and built the main R.R. lines all across this country. but yet we cater to the blacks? one reason.. they have the biggest mouths.. well now we cater to the muslims too... and the fuckin dot heads

She called it how it is. Love how liberal city people get all up in arms because its not politically correct. I bet they are the same ones who think that mosque is perfectly fine at ground zero.

I was prepared to completely disagree with you guys and figured she was simply a racist tramp.


However, after listening, her comments are taken AT LEAST AS MUCH out of context as the woman who made comments at the NAACP convention
(sorry can't remember her name)

Funny thing is the woman with the department of agriculture got all kinds of phone calls apologizing. Think anyone will apologize to this Dr Laura??
I doubt it.

I think she was a total jerk to her caller. Her caller had an honest problem that she was seeking advice to and Dr. Laura just went off on a tirade. No, you should just lighten up if people around you are calling you a racial slur. It's ok because black comedians use the term. I wouldn't ever listen to her anyway, but she's not very good if her job is to try and help people...Or is it more of a Jerry Springer type show?

Dude, I'm a liberal just like you, but I sure didn't hear dr laura call that woman a N..... and the woman didn't say that anyone else was calling her a N.....


I've asked black folks the same things as she was talking about. Ones that I respected, and they knew that. I'm curious how people interact with other people. If people know you are doing it to learn they are fine with it. I've asked the same type questions to Jehova's witnesses.

I didn't say that Dr. Laura called her an N-word. She called in and started explaining her problem and then Dr. Laura basically just said she needs to lighten up, then the caller says something like, "even if they use the n-word?" and she's like yeah, chill out. I find this to be terrible advice. I would find it unacceptable for someone in her husbands family or a friend to refer to her as an n-word. I suppose we can't be sure that this is the case, or if she just meant it as a what if question, but I just think that Dr. Laura didn't handle it in a good way.

I agree. I think Dr. Laura missed the point that the caller was making. I don't think the caller was "hypersensitive". She said she tried to ignore it for a long time and it got to be too much. I can see where having nearly every discussion with her husbands friends revolve around her being black would get annoying, and I can see where she would be offended if they refereed to her as a "insert racial slur here" . I don't care that she used the word "nigger" on the air, and I don't care if she stays on the air or not. But I do think that in this case she jumped on an opportunity to make a social comment, ignoring the callers real question, which seemed to be more about her husbands reaction to it all.

I'm a big city liberal that thinks the mosque, that isn't even going to be built at Ground Zero and never was, is fine, but I also think that if we are going to sensor a word like "insert racial slur here" , then black people should be sensored from using it too. Equal rights, equal restrictions, I say.

As a black jew I certainly understand the outrage. She just proved that she is a hateful and unprofessional person. I wish Deon would call into her show.
