    Sticks and stones, huh?
    Where is the link for that? I've asked many times already, then you said you were being sarcastic, and now you're claiming it again.

    Link?

    And BFD even if she did use racial slurs. WTF? I'm so sick of people pissing and moaning about Paula Deen. But the crowd goes wild when Jordan admits he was racist.

    I guess I'll have to read Jordan's book to see where all this angst towards white people came from as a teenager.

    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.
    I don't know if she does or doesn't. And quite frankly, I don't know if Michael Jordan does either. This isn't about just racial slurs. It's about falsely equating MJ harboring since-repudiated racist animosity as a teenager and Paula Deen exhibiting a pattern of racist actions throughout most of her adult life.

    For the record, it's not his book. It's an unauthorized biography. These "racist revelations" come from a 1992 Playboy interview. I posted the ESPN link earlier in the thread.

    Not really sure what this has to do with this thread, but show us the link that says 'Paula Deen CONVICTED of sexually harassing woman at work'. Anyone can simply sue someone for anything the want.

    Ok? And neither is using the N word 30 years ago or hating all white people 30 years ago, or currently for that matter.
