    I’m shock no one wants to comment on this topic. Why? Is it too sensative? Good for her. She exercised her First Amendment–Freedom-of-Speech. Too bad those who can’t handle the real word put her in a spot where she feels she has to quit her show. American Blacks have been using the “N” word in an affectionate manner toward their own for a very-very long time. But that’s ok-right? As long as a White person doesn’t use it. Hipocrites!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    @Roc Im a black girl and hate that word so much, not all of us blacks use that word.It has a brutal history behind it,during slavery it was the last thing a black person heard before getting killed by a white person not by a black person. So of course its not going to be the same when other races uses it, its just not the same. If a none white person tell someone who is white “white trash” that would be looked at as racist, wouldn’t it ? Even though I hear it coming from the mouth of white people all the time I dont use it why should they use ours? I just hope that people would stop using that word already.

    Claire – there is NO way a black radio personality would get fired for saying white trash, give me a break.
    And Dr. Laura was not saying the “N WORD” in a derogatory (look it up) manner, but using it as an example.

  • Claire’95

    Kate, I think your right. But I was really speaking about most white people who thinks like Roc,and other people who uses that word in a derogatory way and thinks that its okay. And no im not being a cry baby.

  • longchamp

    @ roc – she did, and her critics did too. 1st amdmt guarantees freedom of speech; it does not guarantee freedom from opposing opinion – and boy, did she ever run into that, with the bigoted idiocy she spouted!

    …like with so many other topics, ‘Dr.’ L and her sycophants just don’t seem to sport a high enough IQ to grasp exactly what’s going on. maybe in her free time, she should bone up on reading comprehension skills before venturing to crack open the Constitution.
