    If you're talking about her use of the n-word, she verified it herself. Also, she's being trashed for much more than making a single statement. That's not to say that this story should be covered as much as it is, but you've got your facts wrong.

    Aunt Jemima - in certain contexts - is the female version of "Uncle Tom". It's just lesser known although I'm assuming it's more well known in the South? A black woman dressing up as Aunt Jemima for a white woman is not a good look.

    There was a rather extreme amount of focus and reaction to that particular incident. And given the context of it, it did strike me as extremely bizarre and unreasonable. But the storm was brewing long before that and it could have simply been the straw that broke the camels back

    New rule: if your news "alert" is anything other than a massive fire, bombing, wide-scale political change, stock exchange crash or the discovery of an alien race, your news station sucks.

    I think it has been brewing awhile. People in Savannah don't care for her because she makes the city look trashy. Like everybody acts the same way she does. She got on a nighttime talk show once and talked about defecating in her driveway, and laughed that cackly laugh like it was the funniest thing he had ever heard. Most everybody just looked at each other, like, "What did she just say? Did she really just admit to that on national TV?"

    I've been. It wasn't worth the wait.

    I refused to go to her restaurant because I just hate the woman. I went to Bubba's Oyster House, and the food was phenomenal, but way overpriced. WAY overpriced. I always said I'd go back, until I read those depositions. Now I feel differently. I live on the coast. I can get good grilled oysters at about a dozen different places, and I'd feel much better about my money going to someone that wasn't such a pig.
