  1. How come Sharton don’t go after Blacks that call each other the same name.

  2. I am a 55 year old black man.I’ve seen and heard many things in my life..some good ..some not so good.I got Dr. Laura’s point.And I also think that she put it in a way that exposes the double standards that we as a blended nation ptactice.The word “nigger” is the only word in this country that can be used with impunity by a “select” segment of our population. Get a grip people! To Dr.Laura…You owe no one an apology. All you hot-heads need to take a look in the mirror.Do you see a “nigger”?

  3. As Keith Olbermann pointed out, She never apologized for saying that once we elected a black president she thought all of this hypersensitivity would stop. The old, “haven’t we done enough for you people?” attitude. (see: MediaMatters.org)

  4. a descendant of the Latin adjective niger, meaning the color “black.

  7. Hands down, Apple’s app store wins by a mile. It’s a huge selection of all sorts of apps vs a rather sad selection of a handful for Zune. Microsoft has plans, especially in the realm of games, but I’m not sure I’d want to bet on the future if this aspect is important to you. The iPod is a much better choice in that case.
