Wow! I ate there and the food was delicious! Although the Sangria sucked! What I did notice was only blacks cooking in the kitchen and white servers. No Paula Deen or family around so this doesn't surprise me. A white woman making money off of black people's recipes and cooking. Then of course, not being grateful, but nasty. Some people can't take their blessings and run with them.

...lol...
Didn't Jesse Jackson use it a year after he "buried" in?
Don't blacks use it EVERY day?
How can a word ONLY cause emotional trauma depending on the color of who says it?
It's not only the words, but her wanting blacks to dress as slaves for a wedding, the physical abuse by one of her staff and other mistreatment.

I think Paula dear is suffering from the Scarlett O'Hara syndrom, perculiar to women of the south, especially the poor and trashy ones. Her ancestors never owned slaves nor lived in Tara.

She got lucky with her restaurant. She should have taken her blessings and passed them on. Instead she wants to be pretentious and delusional. That's no joking matter. When you own a business as large as hers, cooking traditional black dishes or southern fare, if you will, don't alienate your client base.

She just lost a lot of her predominately black customers, lol. I know I won't be returning.

Obviously you don't know what you're talking about. Although lots of people who came to this country (voluntarily or not) and brought their dishes with them, the foods prepared by Paula are traditional black american dishes. Slaves brought sweet potatoes and greens and they prepared the foods the way they did in Africa or they tried to get as close as possible. They cooked for the whites and that's why the food is considered southern fare or soul food. No different than German baked goods, Irish potatoes or the way Italians cook, ok?

No, I am not. She's stupid for being offensive. Probably has gotten away with it for so long that she didn't think she was doing anything wrong. However, she knows better. Do you think I would open up a restaurant that caters to mostly whites and call them krakkas, joking or not? That wouldn't go over too well, now would it.

Disgusting, Bappie! If she tormented her African-American staff, then I hope she suffers.

I guess bapsmear is "predominately" black because she's a shytskin with a lot to say about "black pride" even though she married a Puero Rican and lives in a lily-white bastion of nighur-free delight.
"smdh" in deed.
You know there are BLACK Puerto Ricans. You dumb buckra.

Excellent points, Brownskin Beauty.

It seems like she was not wise enough to understand that if you want to be a NATIONAL celebrity or TV star, you can't be getting down like that... Very unprofessional.

These Krakkkas are as dumb as they come, especially the ones from inbredville, virginia. I'm part Boricua, on my mother side and she has always been classified and regarded as black.

Greem with envy, aren't you boy? lol. You living all alone in that trailer up on cinder blocks with just your pussy cat to keep you company. Then there's me, living large with my sexy papi in my comfortable surburban home and life just doesn't seem fair, now does it? lol.

Envy is a dangerous thing. You know things are looking up when a white boy such as yourself is jealous of a black person, lol.

Oh, btw, don't get used to me returning your posts. I know you're lonely and desperate. One can tell by you desperately using different ISP addresses to satisfy your obsession with blacks! LOL

Pathethic!

It's a disappointment. Savannah is such a beautiful place and the people seemed so friendly. Of course, I did travel the tourist district, so I really didn't get a feel for the entire city. We did visit a restaurant owned by one of our fellow traveler's family. They specialized in barbcue and it was delicious. They seemed to be very happy. The owner was 80 years old and didn't look a day over 60. She was a beautiful woman and must have been gorgeous in her day.
