    Paula Deen, pfffft. It's about time this vulgar woman got called out for her unacceptable behavior. I've never been able to stand the broad, and don't know what the hell her "fans"... not to mention The Food Network... ever saw in this foul-mouthed, sexually inappropriate individual.

    You don't really think that this is a made-up scandal to take the heat off of Obama? You aren't serious, are you?

    Amen. I'm so tired of everyone giving her a pass just because she's old, or sweet, or grandmotherly. I don't know many grandmothers who had their show taken off the air because of the sexually inappropriate gestures she would repeatedly make, in front of children. People are only now finding out what the people of Savannah have been saying for yeeeeears.

    Can I axxxe a question???


    W T F is wrong with Aunt Jemima?
    "I condemn the ideology of White Supremacy and Nazism. They are thugs, criminals, and repugnant, and are against what I believe to be "The American Way" "
    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.

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



    It wasn't.

    A man that I worked with in the oilfield at that time in Southeast Louisiana was fired for using that word. That is a fact.

    Im sorry, I don't think I would want to work with an old lady watching porn and talking about sex.

    I'd be a little creeped out.

    That was what my comment was about......... the other was a bit of humor.

    Maybe we should outlaw all re enactments of the annual battle at Gettysburg also because they are period centric? How foolish you people that want to project, and inject racism into everything today look.
    Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.

    Conservatives: She isn't racist.
    Liberals: Of course she's racist.
    Libertarians: You don't have to work for her if she's racist.
    Independents (with Conservative lean): This isn't racist because she asked nicely.
    Independents (with Liberal lean): You guys kidding right?
    Other & Unknown: Unintelligible post.
    Zyphlin: 6,300 word essay.

    I did enjoy Fox News' take on this.



    I genuinely did. They basically hammer out what is so wrong with this entire situation. The problem isn't so much her use of racial epitaphs. It's the entire culture which she allowed to exist in her place. Porn at the work place? Racial attacks? Homophobic remarks? If your boss is willing to use racial epitaphs, have plantation styled weddings, dress her workers as Aunt Jemima, that's not something which stops 20 years ago unless a person can show a track record of having changed. Paula Deen just seems to have been doing the same **** for 20 years and hoping nobody caught on.

    The Food Network did what any business would and should do with people like this. Let them cater to racists if they want on their own platform, works for Glenn Beck.
    Paula Deen is surrounded by a team, dependent upon her for their livelihood, who are supposed to protect and advise her. Complete fail. She also admitted, according to the video, to making jokes about Jews and other ethnic groups. Allowing pornography in the workplace, and a host of other distasteful behaviors. WTF??

    Where was her team? Did she surround herself with airheads? I don't blame The Food Network or any of her other sponsors for dumping her. Very poor judgment and completely unacceptable behavior.

    I was listening to a discussion among family, and one guy (75 years old) said that anyone who says they've never used "The N Word" is a liar. I find THAT offensive. I've never used racial slurs in my life.
    The devil whispered in my ear, "You cannot withstand the storm." I whispered back, "I am ​the storm."
