Dr Laura: Using the N Word

(CNN) -- Talk radio host Dr. Laura Schlessinger has issued an apology for saying the N word several times during an on-air conversation with a caller this week.



Schlessinger was referring to a call she got on her show Tuesday from an African-American woman who said she was married to a white man and was getting fed up with her husband allowing his family and friends to say things that she felt were racist.


Schlessinger and the caller began bickering back and forth toward the end of the call, and the caller said she was upset that the talk show host had used the word.



Schlessinger suggested that the caller was hypersensitive.



"If you're that hypersensitive about color and don't have a sense of humor, don't marry out of your race," the talk show host said.
