    Try to keep up. This isn't about abortion. This is about Paula Deen and whether or not she should have been fired for her racist comments.

    She wasn't even crying this morning. No tears were shed on her Today show interview. She went through the motions of crying, but never actually cried.

    So, tell me. How do you feel about Robert Byrd and Hugo Black? How about LBJ. All racists and two members of the Klan. Good democrats all. And how about Biden's comments about convenience store owners? Hymie Town, and diamond merchants? I don't think I'm too concerned about Paula Deen one way or the other.

    Good grief have you seen her face? She can't cry, even if she could she knows she'd look like Tammy Faye.

    If you aren't concerned, excuse yourself from the thread and go find a thread to complain about Obama or something. Sheesh. You don't know me, so you shouldn't talk about something you know nothing about. I am not a Democrat OR a Republican. I don't condone racism of ANY form, from anybody, no matter what letter they have beside their name.

    A spokesperson for Random House, which is publishing Deen’s upcoming book, “Paula Deen’s New Testament: 250 Favorite Recipes, All Lightened Up,” similarly told People magazine it is “monitoring the situation closely.” The book is scheduled to come out in October.
    See I was under the impression the book was already published. Now Random House is "monitoring the situation closely," as is QVC. It's possible (not bloody likely) but possible that it will not get published, and she'll have to find a new publisher.

    It's not a benign context if used by other races, by definition - unless used as a criticism of its usage. Dropping the N-bomb if you're black doesn't indicate that you think black people are inferior, but if you're white and you drop it, there's a good chance that you look down on blacks.

    It's not "racism" (the word you're looking for is discrimination, BTW), since every other race can use their own pertinent slurs.

    Doesn't context matter?

    Sounds like she has a shot at not getting creamed, but this is not A Good Thing for her. I don't see how she benefits in any way from this. The advance sales of her books are from people who were going to buy her book anyway. People at her restaurant do not add up to big money, and it's not like they're going to keep coming forever.

    All the rest is basically that some of her sponsors are going to stick by her. That doesn't increase her business; It's just keeps her where she was already (minus the sponsors who are dropping her as well as those who may drop her in the future)
