    Paula Deen Fired[W:223]

    Paula Deen Fired: Food Network Cancels Show After Racism Scandal

    Gwyneth Paltrow used the word niggas'. Robert Byrd was a KKK member and used the word 'nigger'. Paula Deen used he word 'nigger' in her past and she got fired. Gwyneth is doing just fine and Robert Byrd was fondly remembered by Bill Clinton.

    Well, she didn't just say "nigger" once. She admitted to saying it repeatedly. She also said she wanted a Civil War era party where middle aged black men would play slaves, LOL. In sum, she's a mess.

    I would agree that a double-standard exists, but I think the comparison to Paltrow and Byrd hugely flawed. Dean's status was as an employee under contract. If someone wants to cast her in a movie, or she wants to run for political office, nothing is preventing such.

    Black people call each other niggers too..so what's the difference..

    The word ''Nigger'' derived from Italian meaning black..

    I have been called a ''honkey''..I would report it but I have no idea what it means..the same as ''blud claart''..Raas claas..

    i cannot take offence..

    As a KKK member I wonder if Robert Byrd said 'nigger' more than once? Black men and women play slaves in movies. They get paid for it.

    I think this is just the straw that broke the camel's back. Mrs. Deen using the 'N' word wouldn't have gotten her fire on it's own. The shear ignorance with which she used it in a professional environment is the key to this particular controversy. But, that isn't the real reason she got fired. Her show is a dissonance within contemporary cooking shows; where 99% of shows are either cooking gourmet dishes, cheap recipes, or diet food; Paula Deen cooks southern home dishes, without any mind towards the culinary arts, frugality, or healthy nutrition. Paula Deen is a dinosaur in the industry; the food channel has had their pen on the pink slip, just waiting for a scandal like this.

    LOL. If you don't see the difference between blacks depicting a story by playing slaves in a movies and white woman wanting to role play in her actual life by pretending black people are slaves, you are ... something else.
