Was Dr. Laura's Interracial Love Advice Racist?
The talk radio host has apologized for dropping several N-bombs on air.

But the rest of her advice...well, we can't really call it advice, can we? Dr. Laura gets paid to help people with their relationship problems, and she absolutely did not do her job with this caller. She ignored the problem and instead made it all about her issues. So, not only did she come off as racist, but she also came off as selfish and incompetent.

On Wednesday, Dr. Laura kicked off her show with an apology: "Yesterday, I did the wrong thing. I didn't intend to hurt people, but I did. And that makes it the wrong thing to have done. I was attempting to make a philosophical point, and I articulated the N-word all the way out—more than one time. And that was wrong. I'll say it again—that was wrong."

What do you think? Is Dr. Laura racist? Was her advice helpful or hurtful? And does her apology seem genuine, or is she just trying to save her show?
