In an extended segment on August 10, radio host Dr. Laura Schlessinger responded to an African-American caller upset about racism by engaging in a long, racially insensitive rant that included 11 uses of the N-word.

In the nearly seven-minute-long rant, Schlessinger attacks the NAACP, says that claims of racism are "hypersensitivity" bred by "black activists" who want "power," and tells her caller that she has "a chip on [her] shoulder" and advises, "If you"re that hypersensitive about color and don"t have a sense of humor, don"t marry outside your race."

"I really thought that once we had a black president, the attempt to demonize whites hating blacks would stop. But it seems to have grown," Schlessinger says as she ends her breathtaking screed.

These kinds of inflammatory comments are nothing new -- Dr. Laura has a pattern of making insensitive attacks, especially against gays and lesbians. Her racial rant, however, is over the top. Companies that advertise on Schlessinger"s show are supporting and perpetuating her extreme, incendiary racial views.

You can help stand up to this unacceptable racial rhetoric. Listed below are major sponsors of Dr. Laura"s show --will you pledge to contact one or more of these sponsors and ask that they stop funding and supporting her?
