FULL AUDIO: Dr. Laura Schlessinger Shows Herself as a Racist ... Believe It

Dr. Laura showed herself to be a white supremicst the other day. She feels so entitled to the idea of white folks being in power that she had no problem accusing an African American female caller of having a "chip on [her] shoulder" and insisting that the woman was "hyper-sensitive" to racial incidents. Dr. Laura then decided it was within her rights to rattle off the N-word almost a dozen times in the live radio discussion.

Soulclap to Media Matters for providing a full audio of Schlessinger's comments:






Schlessinger has since issued an apology, claiming that in her attempt "to make a philosophical point" she realized she had made "a horrible mistake."   Personally, I subscribe to the Maya Angelou philosophy:

"The first time someone shows you who they are, believe them."

Black Man - I guess you heard the audio clip ... so, you know it's so. Question that we have on the table now -- what are we gonna do about it?
