Dr. Laura Schlessinger Drops N-bomb Repeatedly

Dr. Laura Schlessinger Drops N-bomb Repeatedly

Dr. Laura has some interesting advice for her listeners out there, “You know what, if you are that hypersensitive about color and don’t have a sense of humor, don’t marry out of your race.” It was also during this Tuesday broadcast that she used the “N-word” 11 times.

The caller, who is identified as “Jade,” calls in with concerns about her interracial marriage.

She voices concerns that “we’ve been around some his friends and family members who make racist comments as if I am not there or if I am not black and my husband ignores those comments it hurts my feelings.”


Dr. Laura then asks for two examples of the racist comments because as she puts it, “sometimes people are hypersensitive.”

When Jade gives her examples, Dr. Laura disagrees saying that it is not racist and, “well listen, without giving much thought, a lot of blacks voted for Obama simply because he was half black. Didn’t matter what he was going to do in office, it was a black thing, you’ve gotta know that.”

She goes on to reference a basketball game where she turned to her body guard and “dear friend,” who is a “black man” and said, “white man can’t jump I want you on my team. That was racist? That was funny!” It is after this remark that Jade asks about the “N-word.”

Dr. Laura surprises the audience right before the break by saying “Black guys use it all the time, turn on HBO listen to a black comic and all you hear is N****r, N****r, N****r. I don’t get it, if anybody without enough melanin says it it’s a horrible thing, but when black people say it it’s affectionate.”

She tells Jade not to hang up and the segment breaks for commercial. When they return she casually asks Jade what she thought about during the break. Jade responds that she was taken aback by the “N-word that you spewed.” And Dr. Laura responds, “We got a black man as President and we have more complaining about racism than ever and I think that’s hilarious.”

It turns political and a little hostile when Jade suggests that white people are afraid of “a black man taking over the nation.” Dr. Laura points out “Dear they voted him in, only 12 percent of the population is black, whites voted him in.”

Jade counters saying that it wasn’t the older population of white people it was the younger and Dr. Laura says, “Okay, all right, chip on your shoulder can’t do much about that. I think you have too much sensitivity and not enough sense of humor.”

Jade asks if it’s okay to say “N****r” and Dr. Laura thinks it, “depends on how it’s said. Black guys talking to each other seem to think it’s okay.” Jade then said, “But you’re not black,” it turns into another conversation then as Dr. Laura said, “Oh okay so a word is restricted to race.”

They continue to interrupt each other until Dr. Laura says, “Don’t take things out of context, don’t NAACP me.” This is where she advises listeners not to marry out of race unless you have a sense or humor. “I didn’t call anybody a N****r, nice try Jade, actually sucky try.”

Broadcast ends with Dr. Laura saying that “Hypersensitivity, which is being bred by black activists. I really thought that once we had a black president, the attempt to demonize whites, hating blacks, would stop. But it seems to have grown, and I don’t get it. Yes I do, it’s all about power.”

Dr. Laura opened her Wednesday show with this apology, “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 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 just won’t happen again.”
