  2. Vlad and I are fortunate to have a large platform with an amazing community of handbag loving people who join us daily from across the globe. We want to be a part of the fix to end systematic racism, both conscious and unconscious. We are taking steps, both personally and professionally, to be better allies for the Black community. You can read more of my thoughts on PurseBlog and discover a great roundup of Black-owned handbag brands as well.

    As our forums are shopping-focused, read about the 15 Percent Pledge and consider signing the petition to call on major retailers to pledge 15% of their shelf space to Black-owned businesses. Please reach out to me directly if there is something you feel I could do differently on our forums to be a better ally and make this forum a welcoming community for all.

    If you want to deepen your anti-racism work, here is a comprehensive document with resources on books for kids, podcasts, articles, videos and more.

  1. Dr. Laura son linked to lurid Web page

    The soldier son of talk radio relationship counselor Laura Schlessinger is under investigation for a graphic personal Web page that one Army official has called "repulsive."

    The MySpace page, publicly available until Friday when it disappeared from the Internet, included cartoon depictions of rape, murder, torture and child molestation; photographs of soldiers with guns in their mouths; a photograph of a bound and blindfolded detainee captioned "My Sweet Little Habib"; accounts of illicit drug use; and a blog entry headlined by a series of obscenities and racial epithets.

    The site is credited to and includes many photographs of Deryk Schlessinger, the 21-year-old son of the talk radio personality known simply as Dr. Laura. Broadcast locally on 570 KNRS, "Family Values Talk Radio," the former family counselor spends three hours daily taking calls and offering advice on morals, ethics and values. She broadcast a show from Fort Douglas, in Salt Lake City, last week.

    Here's the rest of the story:

  2. Weren't there pics of her posing nude a while back? She has a lot of nerve either way. She needs to start in her own backyard before preaching to others.
  3. That is just too bad to hear that someone had something like that up.
  4. wow - I listen to Dr. Laura on my drive home several days a week. I am really surprised by this.
  5. He's 21, he's an adult. She has no control of what he does now.
    Its disturbing what he's had up, maybe something is wrong with him mentally.
  6. Maybe he's not pleased with how she treated his grandma!
  7. Everyone has warts, some are just not as visible as others.
  8. What did she do to his grandma?
  9. :yes::yes::yes:
  10. Dr Laura was allegedly estranged from her mother for years. Her mother was found dead in her apartment after laying there for weeks alone, undiscovered.

    Dr Laura snipes at people who don't have relationships with their own parents, and ironically, she didn't have one with her own mother.

    She is the poster child for people who live in glass houses and throw stones.
  11. OMG how shocking, that boy is obviously disturbed. Don't know Dr. Laura here in UK but looks like she should be finding some counselling for her son!
  12. Yep. She went to school at USC and my friend's DH taught at the medical school and pretty much all the instructors knew her, and I mean KNEW her, if ya get my drift. I cannot stand her. And, for the record, she has a PhD in physiology not psych, and is not respected at all in the psychiatric/psychological community in the US.
  13. How sad.
  14. Can't stand her.
    Her son sounds like he has major issues... and that kind of sickness builds over years... not just during a deployment.
    sounds like Dr. Laura screwed up her son to me. Just one more reason to dislike and distrust her.
