Why would our black leaders support Paula Deen especially when her own white management said that she did more than call blacks niqqors but it was also but the treatment of black employees as inferiors and her embracing black slavery that is really the point. Neither Sharpton or Jesse Jackson has tolerated nor should have, such racism from white men so why are they giving Paula Deen a pass at black people's expense?

I think in placing themselves up as black representatives, they should use some responsibility in who they defend.

The answer to this is very simple and should be self-evident to most black men - Jackson or the even more rabid Sharpton are willing to give Deen more latitude because black men believe (erroneously) most women of any race are in solidarity with them. You didn't see this same reception, nor support in the case of Imus as the textbook BM tends to be more jealous, fearful and/or angrier towards non-black men.

Look into Eldridge Cleaver's manifestos as well as the militant organization in the Eastwood movie "The Enforcer" [1976]- fictional movie but reflective of reality. Black males in America fear competition from their non-black counterparts (especially whites)- clearly seen both on and off the web. It's self-evident to the BM.

True black men see white women and most other non-black women as being in the same boat as them (except for black women who many black men view as treacherous) while tending to view these women's same race counter-parts as their women's oppressors when it's absolutely false.

By doing that Paula was just playing the Willie Lynch game, which I sure is one of her favorite things to do with black people.

Angry Black Theory is a vital part of the ongoing cycle of the textbook black man's (and their supporters) love-hate relationship with non-black men. Non-blacks evoke inescapable feelings of envy and loathing from both black men and their few remaining supporters.

No, they just have a more nuanced view of white folks. They understand that WW, including bigoted ones like Deen, generally have a less angry and lethal demeanor towards African-Americans.

For example, Paula Deen might crack racist jokes against Blacks but still employ them in positions of responsibility and appear with them on TV shows. I'm not a "foodie," and thus have no experience with watching a Deen show, but I'll say this: If you are a Black man who aspires to be a high-level chef or restaurant owner, and Deen has you appear with her for 15 minutes on a national TV show, you have had your career-boosting 15 minutes of fame.

If the work you did was good and impressive, you can then record that clip, YouTube it, and refer to it on your resume when you apply for your next job moving up in the restaurant world.

Paula Deen surely does more work to hire and uplift Black men than prejudiced WM such as yourself, correct? If so, then we should be able to agree that Rev. Sharpton made the correct judgment call.

excellento post my friend I have come to realize that Paula Deen, like many southerners, was born and bred in that time period where
is was common to use the N word.I don't think that it necessarily makes her an evil person and maybe this experience will make her a better person.

Even during Georgia's Kendrick Johnson protests, most angry blacks were willing to allow participation of any white female who wanted to attend, though were more than ready to congregate and physically jump on any white male within vicinity, even when he supported their cause.

Is this indicative that most blacks believe (erroneously) most white women are in solidarity with them?....or that they're generally bitter and envious towards most white men? The evidence speaks for itself.

Wow, this is crazy. I wonder if Paula Deen was a white man if they would have came to his defense.

So white women should be forgiven for racism, but white men shouldn't?

Though anger is a characteristic many deny they have, it ain't so easy to be hidden or restrained. Black males have reached this destiny because they've lost so much in the ensuing years - their dignity, their self-respect, their women and ultimately, their own lives at the hands of themselves or their own brethren.
