    "her people" are black. Just as I am white and was a novelty because of that. Yes, I was DOUBLY a novelty because of my nationality, but what really made me a curiosity was the fact that I was white. They had little interaction with white people.

    EDIT: You want to know another time that I was a novelty? When I worked in a predominantly black bar. Right here in the good ole USA. 99% of the time I was the only white person in there.


    Perhaps her husband's family had little interaction with black people.

    As for 'nigger', she never gave the context in which it was used. Perhaps they were saying the same things Dr. Laura was... as in, why is it okay for a black person to say nigger, but not a white person? Why are some black people so racist about the use of a certain word? Who knows? She didn't give context.

    Since my points will be lost, I will just give a rhetorical question, I wonder what would have happened had a white woman called into a show ran by a black woman and a similar situation happened. I wonder what you guys would be saying then....

    Well a safe bet, for a betting man, would be that you wouldn't start a thread whining about it.

    Irrelevant. You can throw hypotheticals out all you want but those hypotheticals aren't what happened.

    This is nothing more than a combination of red herring and ad hom, trying to deflect from the real issue with your hypothetical meant to vilify our hypothetical responses before we even get to give them.

    Not gonna fly here, buddy.

    The same thing. You see, most of us on the "she wasn't being racist" side aren't hypocrits. We actually feel the same way REGARDLESS of race.

    However, I'd defy you to find a word that all the white people in the US would get pissed about hearing a black person say.

    Her friends? They're the country club set. They don't talk that way in public (but I bet they say that stuff behind closed doors ). But I've been called a dago plenty of times, though mostly I've been called a JAP. FWIW, the caller never said anyone called her a N****; they just asked what black people thought about stuff.

    Like I said it was a rhetorical question. I already gave my points, and I got the predictable brush-off answers.

    My bigger question through all of this, not even what either lady said is why she -really- quit doing her show. Glenn Beck for example said some stuff that made half of his advertisers quit working with him for a time, but eventually they came back, or he got new advertisers and his ratings actually went up. What is this ladies end game other than making herself out to be the victim?

    Exactly. And besides, everybody has a place where you just don't go. If they are your friends, you respect that. If not, then you have no business being their friend.

    The husband's friends are just taking their cues (or liberties) from the husband, so if the husband can't respect his wife's concerns and stand up for her, he's a terrible husband. That's at best. At worst, he may simply be enough of a douchebag that he tosses around (and believes) the phrase "bros before hos," in which case the wife has a much bigger problem.
