I never use the ‘N’ word but I do understand Dr. Laura’s point and I agree with what she had to say to this caller. She could of gave her 2 cents worth without saying the “N” word a dozen times. But it’s the same for those who use the homophobic word and the word I hate most, “faggot”. People use it so freely only ‘outsiders’ use it. So why isn’t there an uproar whenever this word is used? Yes, because the ‘N’ word is a black thing, just like most things when we dont’ get what we want.
And I am convinced the caller who called into the show did it to set her up and also because she wanted her 15 mins of fame. Suddenly, she’s all over the talk shows.
Dr. Laura Schlessinger , the conservative talk radio host who set off a furor last week when she used the “N-word” multiple times while answering an African-American woman troubled by racist comments, said Tuesday night that she will end the show when her contract expires at the end of the year.
The controversy began when the caller to her show, who is married to a white man, said she was troubled by the fact that he ignored comments offensive to her when they were made by family members and friends.
