    Yeah, isn't that something? I don't like to control people or tell them what to say but I guess you do. Probably wouldn't like it if someone did it to you? How very hypocritical. Yes, I encourage others to speak their mind, so we know how they really feel or think. If they just hid it inside all we'd see is the phony facade they put up, know what I mean?

    Who's controlling them? I dont care what they do but i wont associate myself with people like that. I have many black friends and wouldnt be a very good friend if I sat around and encouraged people to use racist slurs etc. Its also not the kind of people I would want my children to be around.

    Pardon me if I already mentioned this but the accent is contrived. Her normal accent, when the cameras aren't rolling, is normal Southern. Nobody says "y'all" as many times as she does. She probably gets a $50 bonus for every "y'all" she can cram into one episode. She is a product of the "Food Network Marketing Machine." When she first started, she looked like a normal gramma.

    As is usually the case, it was an economic decision by the network, sponsors, etc. ... I doubt that the people who made the decision spend much time caring about anything else ...

    I am sure they talked plenty about it. They had to decide if they needed to do more or less. It was about money and image.

    Re: Paula Deen Fired

    Maybe I am simply misunderstanding people here, but are people really asserting a valid use of honky and other racist white terms? I fully understand that nigger has more baggage, but I fail to see why either should be acceptable when used to disparage a person, or when racism became acceptable when only leveraged at certain groups

    I just came into this conversation ... Did someone say that had she referred to whites as honkies she would not have been fired? BTW, how long ago did she use the "N" word and in what circumstances?

    No some people want to be able to say N... and use the white slur and say but blacks or so and so use that so I should be able to use racial slurs.

    Some people really like using the N word and use it as often as possible.
