    Why would anyone, who probably would never strike another adult, think that it is okay for them to physically abuse their own children?
    Spanking is not abusing. Good you see you again shrub.

    I'm glad you've admitted that you were wrong and that my criticisms were well-founded.

    I don't believe that a person can genuinely apologize for something when they don't understand why it was wrong. Either Paula Dean is racist or she is completely oblivious to the impact her racially insensitive words and actions have on the people around her. In either case, how can she be truly sorry when she can't even acknowledge that she has done something wrong?

    Glad that you're still around, Neosteve.

    I don't consider a smack or two on the butt to be child abuse.

    I'm talking about when someone gets carried away.

    You see here's the thing - Paula Deen didn't start a business until 1991 - less than 30 years ago. So she didn't have any employees before that. If you looked at the article, there is a picture of a black employee in front of the Lady and Sons restaurant (founded in 1996), doing exactly what she is alleged to have asked the employee making allegations to do.

    Now my recollection of the 1990s is not that of a time in which the n-word was considered appropriate.
