don't marry outside of your race

if you want to be properly informed go to the link
and listen to Dr. Laura give sound moral advice from a religious point of view.
She is paid millions of dollars for her advice, she is an expert.

Really?

"Schlessinger has since apologized for her remarks"

I don't know how people can say stupid shit like this over and over and not realize it's going to end up in a media firestorm.

At least her apology wasn't of the "I'm sorry you were offended" kind.

You got to be kidding me, right? And this is a so-called "Dr."

First of all, she was getting off-track, about HBO and black comics, etc... Who cares about that? She should've listened to the caller's situation and analyzed that, instead of getting off track. And she is a doctor?????

Wow.

Meanwhile, Imus was vilified for days before losing his job, and Dr. Laura seems to be getting off scott-free. Not that I am defending Imus in any way.

It is just that I haven't heard any kind of blacklash about Dr. Laura's comments. While in comparison, Imus was getting hammered for what he said. IMO, Dr. Laua deserves the same the kind of backlash, if not worse.

She dislikes women and has so for years. I can't stand her and her bullshit "advice." I can't believe anyone still listens to her or calls her up and expects anything but hatred and venom from her.

She's got a degree in physiology, not anything related to counseling or anything that remotely qualifies her to dish out the "advice" she gives.

^This.

I can't believe people are desperate enough to call Dr. Laura for advice. Go talk to a bartender or an old person drinking free coffee somewhere. They usually have good advice to give.

I've had to listen to her show a few times while riding in the car with my parents. I can't understand why she is still in business. She just comes off as so smug and self-righteous - her voice just drips with it. It's like she looks down on the people who call in. She doesn't exactly have type of personality that would encourage me to reveal my personal problems.

As for what happened on her show last week - hey, "Dr." Laura, mabye if you can't overcome your racism in order to do your job and be compassionate and at least attempt to give useful advice to someone who is trying to deal with a truly awful situation, maybe you shouldn't be on the radio! Or in a job that requires you to have any human contact with anyone whatsoever.

CALLER: OK. Last night -- good example -- we had a neighbor come over, and this neighbor -- when every time he comes over, it's always a black comment. It's, "Oh, well, how do you black people like doing this?" And, "Do black people really like doing that?" And for a long time, I would ignore it. But last night, I got to the point where it --

SCHLESSINGER: I don't think that's racist.
Really? 'Cause, you know, people naturally normally talk like that when they see each other, right?

"Some of my best friends are black", first thing that popped into my head.


As for the rest...uh...yeah...seriously, what the hell? What did ANY of that incoherent rambling have to do with the issue at hand? And I too am curious as to why anyone who honestly wanted their problems solved would turn to "Dr." Laura. This person must've been fortunate enough to have avoided hearing her over the years and this was her unfortunate introduction to this woman. That's the only logical explanation.

And we won't even get into the "n" word stuff. Has she heard of the FCC at all?
