The harmony cart is being upset on all sides... In this corner, there's Maxine Waters (via Michelle Malkin) [...On the Reverend Al Sharpton’s national radio show on Tuesday afternoon, Waters played the persecuted champion of Urban America to perfection. She claimed the meeting was arranged on behalf of all black banks in the country. Sympathizers are now framing the matter as a threat to “advocacy for black businesses” and whispering loudly about a “racial profiling” campaign against Waters, her embattled colleague Rep. Charlie Rangel, and other ethically-challenged members of the Congressional Black Caucus...]
And in this corner, Doctor Laura! DR. Laura Schlessinger was talking to Jade, an African-American caller, looking for some advice and sympathy for the way she is treated by her Caucasian husband's family and friends. The conversation triggered DR. L to invoke "the N Word" - it all went downhill from there!
Female caller: Is it OK to say it?
DR. Laura Schlessinger: Well, it depends on how it is said.
Female caller: Is it ever OK to say that word?
DR. Laura Schlessinger: It depends how it’s said. Black guys talking to each other seem to think it’s OK.
Female caller: But you’re not black. They’re not black. My husband is white.
DR. Laura Schlessinger: I see. So a word is restricted to race? Got it. Can’t do much about that.
Female caller: I can’t believe someone like you is on the radio spewing out the (bleep). I hope everyone heard it.
DR. Laura Schlessinger: I didn’t spew out the (bleep) word.
UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: Everybody heard it.
DR. Laura Schlessinger: Yes, they did.
Female caller: I hope everybody heard it.
DR. Laura Schlessinger: They did and I’ll say it again (bleep). Why don’t you let me finish a sentence? Don’t take things out of context. Don’t NAACP me.
Female caller: I know what the “n” word means and I know it came from a white person. And I know the white person means that.
DR. Laura Schlessinger: All right. Thank you very much. Thank you very much. Can’t have this argument. You know what, if you are that hyper sensitive about color and don’t have a sense of humor, don’t marry out of your race.What do YOU think about what DR. Laura said?
