    Ok, I agree. Now I wonder why the NBA isn't smeared in the news as a racist organization?

    Yeah... it wasn't that simple. Daniel Tosh hasn't lost his career. People don't lose their "careers" over words. They lose their careers when they can no longer find work. Paula Deen? Her restaurants are still thriving. She's still a multimillionaire making money on her diversified portfolios and army of accountants ensuring she's still making money. Did Chick-Fil-a stop making money? Nope. Their revenue is actually up this year. Paula Deen? She lost her ability to be on TV and attract black people. Her career? Still there.

    So apparently your idea of a possible 'reformed racist' is only applicable to black people, not to white people?

    But she did lose her job on the Food Network because her name was smeared and she was labeled a racist because she said the N word a long time ago, no?

    ACtually, it seems like you believe the reverse

    You clearly believe that Michael Jordan still is a racist because he was a racist as a kid, but Deen is not a racist even though she allowed the mgr of her restaurant to segregate the bathrooms in the restaurant.

    No.

    She lost her show because her ratings were dropping, even before the lawsuit became public knowledge

    No, I don't really think either one of them are racists. I just wonder why if a white person who becomes famous and then admits to racist views a long time ago, they are labeled a racist and their name is smeared, but if a famous black person does the same, no big deal, it's because of their upbringing?
