If You Don’t Like the Word Nigger, Then Don’t Use It.

Otherwise, but out of trying to play language police.     The over hyped non story of the day is the fact that Doctor  Schlessinger  uttered the word Nigger a  whopping eleven times.    Dr Schlessinger only crime, as see it, is rhetorical over kill.  From Frances Martel, Mediaite [1]:

After the caller expressed some discomfort with the tone of Schlessinger’s comments, the host scolded her, telling her not to “NAACP me” [according to the dictionary, the proper term is to Breitbart] and, finally, “if you’re that hypersensitive about color, and don’t have a sense of humor, don’t marry out of your race.” Wow. Not that Dr. Laura hasn’t gotten in trouble for insensitive comments before: In 2002, Schlessinger found herself in hot water for calling homosexuality “a biological mistake.” That, however, was not directed at a particular caller, nor did it use specific slurs.

Dr. Laura’s rant made it to primetime tonight thanks to CNN’s Rick Sanchez, who led his 8PM program with the story, getting ahead of The O’Reilly Factor (leading with a 14th Amendment debate) and Countdown (leading with an interview with an American mechanic).

Liberals contend that when the word Nigger if used by whites, it is inherently offensive.   Yet liberals and many blacks, routinely accept black use of the word.   It is simply impossible for a word to both inherently offensive, and yet acceptable in certain contexts.    Make up your mind, and get back to me.
