    Okay, and we care about what Paula Deen says.......why? She uses "racial slurs"?

    What the hell ever happened to sticks and stones, and all that? BFD. We as a nation get way too invested in the words of people we don't even ****ing know about people we don't even ****ing know.

    Maybe you oughta go research it?

    Wow, it's almost like black people have lots of legitimate reasons to feel grievances over racial issues and white people have few, if any.

    Wow, it's almost like black people want to be treated equal, yet they don't quite want to be treated equal.

    That's what I'm saying. She said she used racial slurs decades ago, and loses jobs, Michael Jordan says he hated all white people decades ago, and nothing.

    That's what I'm wondering too. This should be an interesting answer.

    THAT is the difference - Paula Deen still uses it, Michael Jordan does not.

    It's really not that hard, guys.
    You're giving him a pass because he's black. Grow up!
