Dont embarass yourself any further...this post is dumb as hell. She IS a racist and so is anyone that supports this bullsh*t.

White People, dont kid yourselves and dont embarass yourselves any further. Anyone w/ half a brain sees through your bullsh*t and sees your true nature.

You're right, White Guy. There's no double standard in the media. That's why they jumped all over Robert Byrd when he dropped the n-bomb and drove him out of office in shame.

Oh wait. That never happened.

Dr. Laura's whole shtich is teaching people how not to be victims. She is abrasive and confrontational with all callers for the shock value. This caller was treated no differently than most callers, she just didn't want the advice on how to deal with the situation, and actually outfoxed Dr. Laura playing the race card.

White Guy,

You're an idiot. Dr. Laura was DESCRIBING and QUOTING blacks who say "nigger" all the time--and there are plenty of them who do. If you aren't aware of that, all you need to do is watch black comedians, or spend some time around lower-class blacks (who seem much more likely to say "nigger" than better-educated blacks).

She did it to illustrate a point, unlike most people who say it. Most people who say "nigger" use it as a term of endearment (or rarely, as an epithet).

How is it "racist" to quote what real people really say? If it's always "racist" for whites to say "nigger," even if they're quoting blacks, and it's never "racist" for blacks to say "nigger," then you're living in a bizarre world where it's "racist" for whites to refer to certain objective, verifiable facts.

I take it back, White Guy: you're not an idiot. You're a brainwashed ideologue.

Dr. King taught ALL Americans that skin color should not matter whatsoever.

But sadly, many people seem to think that a certain skin color gives them the right to say a word that will get another guy with different skin color, fired or worse.

Which is is? Does skin color matter? Or not? If you say that it matters, then YOU are a racist. Sorry, but it's true.

If the word is truly wrong, then it should be wrong for EVERYONE, and if you don't see it that way, see the last paragraph.

So, it appears that some of the commenters feel that Malik Zulu Shabazz can call me a "cracker" and threaten to kill my children but, Dr. Laura can't use the term "nigger" in a non-confrontational way?
I guess Dr. Laura must be a racist and Malik Zulu Shabazz is not...
Don’t get me wrong. I stopped listening to Dr. Laura a few years ago because she always says the same thing and has an irritating voice.

Tom: The only thing stupider than your drawing is your hat.

Don't understand all of the Tom haters here?

I could say something that is even stupider than hats but we shouldn't feed the trolls.
