Dr. Laura N Word (Video)

August 18, 2010

The Dr. Laura Schlessinger N word video has gone completely viral, and she has issued and apology. Check out the Dr. Laura n word audio and see what the buzz is about here!

Dr. Laura Schlessinger

This is just crazy. Apparently Dr. Laura Schlessinger used the N word 11 times during an on air call to a female caller on Tuesday.

Dr. Laura was talking to Jade, an African-American caller, looking for some advise and sympathy for the way she is treated by her Caucasian husband’s family and friends. She said that make racist comments about her in her presence. Jade then asked if the N-word was offensive, and Dr. Laura said “Black guys say it all the time,” and repeated it during their conversation 11 times.

Obviously this has people all over upset and Schlessinger has since issued an apology. The talk show host said:

“I articulated the N-word all the way out–more than one time. And that was wrong. I’ll say it again–that was wrong…I ended up, I’m sure, with many of you losing the point I was trying to make, because you were shocked by the fact that I said the word…I, myself, realized I had made a horrible mistake, and was so upset that I could not finish the show. I pulled myself off the air at the end of the hour. I had to finish the hour, because 20 minutes of dead air doesn’t work. I am very sorry. And it won’t happen again.”

I think this comes too little too late. You can’t do/say something 11 times and call it a mistake. And everyone knows that it is an offensive, hateful word that is not acceptable to use under any circumstance.

You can listen to the audio in the video I placed below. Check it out, and then tell me – what are your thoughts on the Dr. Laura n word video.

    I don’t think she had anything to apologize for. And I don’t think she IS sorry, I just think she realized what a fuss the hypersensitive liberals in this country would make and decided it wasn’t worth possibly losing her show (or worse) over to be honest. I hear “cracker” all the time on tv and not just in the Ritz commercials. Does it offend me? Yes, but only because it’s hypocritical because not only is it widely accepted, so is using the “n-word” between blacks.

    I dont think either word should be said. It shows ignorance in my opinion. Why call people out of their name like that? She should have apologized and ANYBODY who says that or cracker should apologize.

    She is pissed that Obama is in the White House and took it out on Jade. She is an idiot and has always been an idiot. She should be fired!!!

    As long as the black community continues to use the word as much as they do then it will be nearly impossible to get rid of it. With a whole generation of white kids copying everything the black kids do, its only going to get worse. It was Oprah who basically started the whole ‘n-word’ fiasco when she had a problem with rap lyrics and went overboard. People are way to sensitive, but Dr. Laura is an uninformed idiot.

    Dr. Laura should know better to use that kind of language. So not cool.

    Perhaps if she had allowed the caller to discuss her issue without projecting her own view point, she wouldn’t have had to go out on a limb. Too bad Dr.Laura did’nt have an escape chute and 2 beers to grab after sticking her foot in her mouth.

    Dr. Laura is out of her freaking mind! “Don’t NAACP me.” “Some people are hypersensitive”??? I think she NEEDS a lesson in sensitivity!

    Since when have we lost our freedom of speech. I see a day when Websters Dictionary will not even print the word. I understand what the Dr was saying but the caller (and many others) are being overly sensitive.
    I am a minority, and my family is from another country and from experience I can say the United States is the only place where the N word or any word) is so taboo. By the Dr apologizing and backing down from her point, the conversation that needs to happen is once again, an elephant in the room.

    Dr. Laura is not a medical doctor, nor a doctor of psychiatry…why is anyone listening to her at all.

    What a hateful person Dr. Laura is. Disgraceful and rude behavior, she didn’t let the woman make her point and belittled her for asking legitimate questions. Racism still runs very deeply in this country, I hear racist remarks every day at my job in a rural community in NY. People are individuals, the question “what do black people think” is inherently racist. Dr. Laura doesn’t have a clue, she needs to go to sensitivity training or better yet, just shut up
