    He acted differently than an adult than Deen, sure, he slam dunked basketballs and she cooked food, that is very different. So what?

    So you're claiming that MJ, off the court, held the same racist views that Paula Deen did away from the kitchen? If so, can you prove it? The depositions from the Deen lawsuit are much more damning than "she said the N word 30 years ago." So show me the money. Where's proof of Racist Michael Jordan after the age of 16?

Funny how you're not even mentioning that.
    I didn't (seriously) call him a racist either. Just wondering why he gets a pass when he changes his views, and others do not?

    That is far from the only difference, but it goes back to what I have been saying...different things are different. It is pretty stupid to get upset because people treat different things differently.

    So name me the person who "changed their views" and didn't get a pass? There's little evidence that Paula Deen "changed her views."

    Actually, the book in question about Jordan was written by someone else, and he took the racism quotes from a Playboy interview with Jordan. In 1992. So this has been on the record for 22 years, and nobody gave a **** until right now.

    I'm not upset. This is a forum. We're allowed to call out and question bull**** things in this world on here, are we not?

    There's really little evidence that Jordan changed his views either, other than his word, same as we have from Deen.

    The depositions in the Deen case make it clear she hasn't changed her views.

    There is nothing from the last 30-some years of Michael Jordan's life that indicates he is a racist.

    Then do it honestly.

    Paula Deen: Says she changed her views, has depositions from a lawsuit that indicate she hasn't.

    Michael Jordan: Says he changed his views, has nothing to indicate he hasn't.

    I honestly do not see why this is so difficult for you to understand.

    Where's the depositions from the Deen case? (Actually I never even knew there was a Deen 'case')
