    Nope, she lost her job because she couldn't attract a big sedentary demographic (black people). You think it would have made a difference if her comments were against white people? Just look at all those "redneck" shows that still make money for niche networks and haven't been cancelled. Paula Deen sold herself off as a soul food loving woman against racism. When that image was completely betrayed by 30 years of her comments and actions, the network found itself in a tough position. Would it keep selling her off as a soul food loving woman against racism? Nope. It can't. Audiences would hate it. So they decided that instead of rebranding, they'd simply cut her loose and pay her a few pennies (measly royalties). None of this is even remotely indicative of a ruined career if one considers all of the other venues Deen has.
    I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality. - MLK

    Well, he told the story to highlight how he had changed.

    No.

    You should continue to think that he's a racist because he was one as a child, but Paula Deen is no longer a racist even though she was one as a child.

    Don't put words in my mouth. I don't think either one of them are racist.

    Do you have that link?
