    I love you guys and the advice that you give. But, please tell Dr. Sheri that her “tar-baby ” analogy on 7-6-16 show was not good. Maybe she is unaware that the term and the story from which it derived, were often used as a racial slur in the past.

    Thank you..

    “The Tar-Baby is a fictional character in the second of the Uncle Remus stories published in 1881; it is a doll made of tar and turpentine used to entrap Br’er Rabbit. The more that Br’er Rabbit fights the Tar-Baby, the more entangled he becomes.”
    It was used in its proper context. So, nothing is offensive here.
