Dr. Laura Schlessinger Apologizes For Use Of The “N-Word”
Talk radio host Dr. Laura Schlessinger has issued an apology for saying the N-word several times in an on-air conversation with a caller that she said was “hypersensitive” to racism.
During the exchange on Tuesday’s show, Schlessinger said the woman who called herself Jade was too sensitive for complaining that her husband’s friends made racist comments about her in their home. ( Listen to the audio on MediaMatters.org.)
After listening to the audio, it seems clear that the good doctor is terribly misguided, ignorant and/or racists in her rants and behavior. She also may have continued her rant knowing that she would garner some attention (her ratings aren’t what they used to be).
Schlessinger said the word “Nigger” on the air 11 times and told the caller (a black female married to a white man) she should not “marry out of your race” if you don’t “have a sense of humor.”
