Laura Schlessinger, Why Did You Apologise In N Word Flap?

Laura Schlessinger got herself into a heap of trouble with an African American caller who was complaining about hearing what she considered to be racist remarks from relatives and friends of her white husband. Laura asked the caller to be more specific and was generally dismissive of the caller's concerns.Laura Schlessinger correctly pointed out that the N word is routinely used by black comedians and actually used the word in describing the incongruities in society's reactions to it. As has been pointed out ad nauseum, she actually used the word 11 times. She was not hurling an epithet but discussing it. She correctly pointed out that interracial marriages will expose you to opinions from the other side that may rub you the wrong way. The conversation between Dr.Laura and her African American caller was a collision of racial attitudes. And it seemed that the caller was looking for something at which she could seize upon to take offense to.The stench of hypocrisy wafted across America's airwaves when Al Sharpton, a notorious African American racist and inciter weighed in with a pompous criticism of Dr Laura. quotes the racial arsonist, Al Sharpton as follows.
"That is despicable. She said the word over and over, and in a very animated way, I might add, but that she actually, if you listen carefully to the logic of what she was saying was that the N-word was not offensive."

A man like Al Sharpton should be the last to speak about racism. His infamous role in the Crown heights riots and the Freddie's Fashion Market picketing which led to arson and death (see link below) has no right whatsover to cry racism.

There is a lot to dislike about" Dr" Laura. Her advice is questionable. She cuts herself slack and gives none to others. She gave up on orthodox Judaism because some Jews hurt her feelings. The woman annoys the hell out of me. But she is no racist. I have heard "whitey" f***ing Jew and other insults. I have been refused service by an African American van driverbecause he would not take a white passenger. Anti white violence, incitement and hatred goes uncensured and unpunished.My only beef with Laura schlessinger is not that she said the N word but that she apologised. The woman is not a racist. She is a coward.
