Since then, it's been proven that Police Academy's Michael Winslow was not behind her making it only sound like she was saying the n-word and being attacked by a helicopter. So she's spent a couple weeks apologizing. From what I understand, she was trying to make a philosophical point about how faggy it is that she's not allowed to be racist. On Larry King she explained that she wasn't "DISSING" anyone. I know what you're thinking, Anyone with that level of mastery over the Black language can't possibly be a racist! Case closed. Except Dr. Laura said "dissing" in the same way someone might fuck a jar of pickles in an unlocked room--very nervously, with a pained look on her face and certain what she was doing was wrong. Dr. Laura speaks Ebonics like a douchebag ordering a burrito in Spanish.
Every white person thinks they're the magic one who gets to say racial epithets. We're a very insecure people and it makes us feel like a part of the group when you give us permission to be racist. But you can't just jump right in. For example, if someone asks me why I seem to date mostly black girls, I don't scream, "Because they're scared of ghosts and can't hold down a job!" I have to start off by saying something about my own people like, "Because white women have mustaches" or "Clapping to the downbeat causes AIDS." After 30 minutes of that, maybe then I can finally say, "Because black women make flattering, Chewbacca-like sounds in bed." But never, ever do I get to say the n-word. I thought white people finally learned that when it cost us Dave Chappelle.
The outburst has ruined Dr. Laura's radio career, but more importantly it has ruined board game night at my house. You see, my top hobby is owning stupid shit and for many years I've enjoyed The Official Dr. Laura Board Game. But now after this n-word business, a session of The Dr. Laura Board Game sounds like Dog the Bounty Hunter reading the comments under every YouTube video with black people in it.
