Here we go again. Somebody's feelings got hurt so another celebrity is back peddling trying to fix what they said. First thing, Dean could have lied and said she had never use the word. This just shows people don't really want the truth. Second, why does what she says to her husband about a robber matter. Third, what happened to free speech. Forth, why can blacks call each other "N" but whites are not suppose to use the word. If it is a derogatory insult, then why do they allow their own people to use it. And last why do we never hear about a black calling a white by honkey, whitey, cracker, master etc. Is it because whites do not care what they are called.
Topix wont let a person type the word out but has no restrictions for profanity.
Paula Dean was raised in an era where it was normal to use that word. Like some were use to the word Jap. The blacks need to be self confident enough not to let names bother them. They need to worry about the black on black crime.

As you see, nobody wants to touch this subject. Nobody wants to admit that white people allowed themselves to be put in this position because they will not stand up for their heritage and free speech.

Anyone over age 40 in the South has used the "N" word. It is ridiculous that Deen is being punished for something she said 30 years ago.She needs to be allowed to move on and put this behind her.

I don't agree with what she said but I don't think the punishment fits the crime. A person shouldn't have their career ruined over a remark they made years ago. JMO....

I don't think it will hurt her finances. She did nothing wrong. I wouldn't care what any liberals thought if I had her money. That is the only reason this has been made a big deal is because she is successful.

Racism happens in all forms. But I think people that should stop getting so mad when someone says something bad. We are adults! Does it really matter. Did it make someone commit suicide. Highly doubtful. The same people punishing others from a mistake, or opinion, are turning and throwing racism back by using non-ethical restrictions. A persons personal life has nothing to do with a persons professional life. Yet someone that actually takes from our great country of America,tax fraud, drug dealing, and other crimes that hurt the economy are either granted endorsements or, put back into a view as an All American. This country is going backwards, did you know that are mind has a thing called ignore and forget. Peace came from the worst and most outrageous activities and yet there is still peace! even our computer networks are reversing!!!!

I think many white people are scared. Or they have convinced themselves that its better to take the high road and mind their own affairs. But what they are doing is letting themselves get backed in a corner. Other than the Southern people, mountain, and rednecks, which ones are willing to fight this battle? I know many who will never say a word. Like a sleeping giant they will be armed and take care of business when needed. Wouldn't it be better to speak up now, demand our free speech and stop giving in every time some black people get offended.

Yeah......I guess its bad but not bad enough for the AA's to denouce usage.

So if Paula was a guest voice on the Boondocks and said the "n" word would she still be in the spot light? I think not.

Hell i like Paula, she can come by our place and whip up some good vittles. Hell she can bring her driver too. He can mow the yard. We can sit on the porch and drink mint julips and say the "N" word over and over. Just retire Paula and tell them to kiss it!

I think it was strategic timing to push Paula's products off the shelves.

Since it worked, you'll probably see this trick used again.
