This racist rant by Dr. Laura Schlessinger is truly unbelievable, even coming from her intractably pan-bigoted ass. I mean, she had said some unbelievable shit—about LGBTQI people, about women, about people of color, about atheists, about progressives—in her day, but this just takes the everloving cake.

I particularly love the part where she ends the exchange with Jade, her caller, a black woman who is upset her white husband doesn't intercede when his white friends and family members make racist comments, by sniffing: "You know what? If you're that hypersensitive about color and don't have a sense of humor, don't marry out of your race." Wow.

Media Matters notes that audio of the exchange "appears to have been excised from the recording of that day's show that appears on Schlessinger's website." Huh.
