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.
I think it will. She's not evil in my opinion. As a Southern white woman who employs African-Americans like she does and who was an Obama supporter in 2008, she has a right to expect support from Rev. Sharpton. And I'm glad he was helpful to her -- because that's part of loyalty to those who've helped your cause. You stand up for your friends even when they f*ck up.

However, she is a bigot and she's also a poor business manager. Anyone who allows racist jokes in the work environment, or allows a manager to openly view porn and show it to others, is not a smart boss.

Even worse is how she handled the lawsuit. She's lost an estimated $12+ million in endorsements. But if she'd simply settled the lawsuit with a confidentiality clause (to shut Lisa Jackson up) for maybe $1 million, she'd still be a winner. She'd have $11 million in her pocket over the long haul, and her public reputation would not be in the toilet.

Sometimes racism just makes people DUMB - if they aren't that way already. LOL

Wow, this is crazy. I wonder if Paula Deen was a white man if they would have came to his defense.
46% of WW, including Ms. Deen, voted Obama in 2008. He won the White House in 2008 BECAUSE of their votes.

Would a racist-language-using white man like Ted Nugent or Don Imus have supported Obama in 2008? Or campaigned for him?? LOL

Most black men are willing to "forgive" white women as they erroneously believe they're in solidarity with them - presumably because of some BM/WF relationships sprinkled throughout America.

Most black men on the other feel extremely challenged by white men on the other hand and simply feel they can't compete with them, which is why their ideology to "get them out of the way" is on the rise.

Millions of non-black men voted for Obama. The textbook black man can't overcome his envy of non-black men in general to see, nor accept it.

Obama has a white mother. Women relate to men they can birth.

Let's face it..there are two major political parties in this country and the masses in general vote one or the other (and most don't vote at all)...So, I'm not sure why it is brought down to race when the political parties have an agenda and whose the spokesperson of that agenda doesn't mean a whole lot.

I actually agree with you on this point, Shalimarr. I have no surveys or opinion polls to cite, but my instinct tells me you're correct.

The corollary to that, of course, is that in such cases women are unoffended by the circumstances of the man's birth. In other words, the same women are not bitterly grumbling about what a "filthy wh*re" his mother was for allowing a Kenyan tribesman to impregnate her.

Most whites voted for Romney. It was minorities (blacks, mexican asians), that voted for Obama and had him win.

And when each of the two parties split the white vote closely, the winning candidate will win BECAUSE of the minority vote.

In 2012, President Obama overwhelmingly won the African-American, Asian-American and Hispanic/Latino-American vote.

They're prepared to give him a chance. It was Michelle who had to work hard to be accepted by them. I did not follow the election campaign closely enough to know how Michelle played it.
I noticed both her and her daughters always have straightened hair.

Yes, most whites either didn't vote or voted Romney but the other whites did vote for Obama, democrat..otherwise he wouldn't have won. The minority vote in terms of race and ethnicity would not have been enough ..he needed all of the minority vote and whites to win. All winners in this country need the white vote.

I guess it's just how one chooses to see things. I can't say you are wrong but you certainly can't say I'm wrong. Whites are the overwhelming majority in this country. There is no way to win unless whites vote for the winner (unless of course whites don't vote at all).

Yep. In the first campaign, they even had to sideline her for awhile because the attacks against her were starting to effect him in a bad way. When she came back after the sideline she was much more non threatening.

Interesting.
He gained my approval and eased my suspicions by having a chocolate wife. Not even a biracial looking wife but a real undoubtedly full black wife. So I assumed conversely that Michelle would be a liability to him getting white female votes, from these women who naturally assume they are entitled to any handsome successful man born to a white woman.
Can you summarize what the "tea party" thing is about and how it effects AAs and Obama?

That is still no excuse for her to make those racist comments. She should be penalized just as much as don imus. I guess people who think like you is where white women get the notion that they can say and do whatever they want to anybody they want.
