    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

    No, Paula Deen was smeared and lost her career because she admitted that she used the N word over 30 years ago.

    I'm not at all sure. I don't think it's a slam-dunk, that's for sure. It would depend upon his actions NOW.
