    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.

    Being honest, I can't say the same. As a kid, I may have used it, but as I grew, and matured one rationally, and quickly learns that the type of disdain one must hold in ones heart to constantly keep up that sort of hatred is just mentally exhausting, and not what educated people believe, or perpetuate....It is counter productive.

    I see a lot these days that surprise me to no end.

    Um, you really think this is just about her making one statement 30 years ago? You think that's all there is to it?

    I'm still waiting for him to answer me on how this is allegedly a ploy to take the heat off of Obama.

    No, we should of course make excuses and pretend like there's no longer any such thing as racism.

    Unless it's done by black people. Then we'll take everything anyone with dark skin says that is even aware that there is such a thing as race, and blow it up into the biggest deal ever.

    I think you are full of it.
    "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.

    Strangely.... that is what the media is doing, but in reverse.

    Why? I think that says a whole lot more about you than me -- just as it does my brother-in-law. (Not REALLY my BIL, 'cause Tom and I aren't married, but close enough.)

    You just can't believe that some people choose not to use racial slurs, can you? I don't call women ***** either.
