“If you’re that hypersensitive about color and don’t have a sense of humor, don’t marry out of your race,” Dr. Laura Schlessinger advised.
What in the deep-fried hell is going on? Interestingly, coverage of Schlessinger’s outbursts and apology have squarely focused on her repeated spewing of the n-word. Yet, the rant sparked when the caller — a black woman identified as Jade — voiced dissatisfaction with statements her white husband’s buddies have made. “We’ve been around some of his friends and family members who start making racist comments. And my husband ignores those comments, and it hurts my feelings.” As an example, Jade explained her neighbors recently visited her home and asked her to speak on behalf of all black people.
Dr. Laura’s reaction? “If you’re going to marry out of your race, people are going to say, ‘OK, what do blacks think?'” In other words — although Dr. Laura alerts her bodyguard and “dear friend” is a black man — she is seemingly of the mind that other white people don’t have social circles as diverse as hers. Thus, if a white man marries a black woman, his white buddies will leap on the golden opportunity to ask a real, live black person what they and others like them think about various social issues. The black wife’s response? She should laugh it off. If she doesn’t, she’s hypersensitive, lacks a sense of humor and doesn’t fully appreciate the joys of racism.[ Read More ]
