Dr. Phil drags America through debate on racist slurring

Today on Dr. Phil, the good TV doctor dragged America and anyone unfortunate enough to have a TV to watch an hour of debate over using "the N-word," with racist racists saying they can say what they want, and other people pointing out that that’s kinda racist. Comedians Paul Mooney and Sheryl Underwood yelled at people. The Rev. Al Sharpton was on a satellite monitor, for his protection or ours? And all I could think about was Louis CK’s brilliant bit explaining how racist it is to even think we’re making an improvement by saying "the N-word," with this clip from his upcoming Showtime special (do I need to remind you this is NSFW?):
