Paula Deen was fired from the Food Channel after truthfully answering questions on a deposition about comments addressing negros as n*&&%$#. She apologized just like Dog the Bounty Hunter did after he made disparaging remarks but he still has a show. I think someone was out to ruin Paula.
The remark that has caused Deen this amount of trouble was made 30 years ago. Rappers make the remark NOW and millions of both white and black Americans listen to it every day.

How strange is it that the very people who get their drawers in an uproar over Deen are accepting and supportive of black people using the same word. And don't tell me that the word means different things to different races. Get this: Poop smells just as bad whether it comes from a red, yellow, black, or white behind.

Black folk: you want the word to go away. Stop using it and stop letting your young children listen to that brand of rap that degrades women, uses the N word and other filth.

Our culture is being dominated by the media. The Deen lynching is the most recent example.

Day after day, every day, I seen black faces on TV who have been arrested for crime. Most of the crime is against other blacks.

This problem cannot be solved by the white man. Black people have to instill a willingness to learn and to conform to civil behavior in their young children.

There are many black people who have become highly successful It can be done.

Black people: accept the fact that a good many of your young are criminals. Accept the fact that a good many of your young men breed like rabbits and then abandon their young. Accept the fact that too many of your children reject education. Until you do and do something about it, nothing will change.

Too much attention by the media and anger by some black people are centered on the lynching of Paula Deen. Both should be outraged by the self inflicted problems that the black Americans.

so disappointing wrote:
it is really disappointing to know for sure that i live in a town and state that is this backward and ignorant. to read these comments makes one understand that no matter how much this is considered the "Bible Belt" there is no christian love or compassion for others, there is really only hatred for other races and anyone the so-called christian right deems not holy enough. Many will be surprised when they come to judgement and find out that prejudice isn't really christian. "Love one another as I have loved you." Wonder what he would have to say about all the hatred some seem to have against our president solely because of the color of his skin?
Prejudice???? What is but not prejudice that is the lynching of Paula Deen? She is a racist? Does using the N-word 30 years ago make one a racist and rappers who use it now are not? I think that it is racist for the media to descend on this woman and destroy her.

Is it backward to lament the proven fact that our cities are a breeding ground for crime and that a good percentage of the criminals are black? That sir, is a fact. A fact, that should jar both the media and the black community to attack that real problem rather than seek a politically correct victim to crucify in an effort to make themselves feel good.

Hatred of Obama, because of his race???? In order for Obama to be voted in he had to have a huge support from the white community. I assure you, sir, his falling support is due, not to his race, but to his incompetence. And since you brought it up...yes, to hate the president because of race would be racist, but would supporting an incompetent because of his race also be racist???

? White people can say what they want and no one cares. So can any other race. It's people in the public eye, people who other people look up to and respect.

When you're whole persona is being a sweet southern woman who just loves everyone and cooks good meals. When that person turns to a racist who demeans her staff and not only looks down on people but speaks of them as her slaves then the public opinion is going to turn.

There are plenty in the public eye who do and say dumb stuff all the time yes, but most of them were true to who they are and said and did the same stuff throughout their time in the limelight. It's not like Paula Dean where her hole identity goes into question.

She's not by any means the first person to lose sponsors for something either...black or white. Think Tiger Woods, Lance Armstrong, Michael Phelps...and many more.

Now this is America, and we all have our right to think and do as we please..within the law. Paula Dean has the right to say and think as she believes. She has every right to be a racist, but the public and sponsor have every right to turn away and be done with her at the same time.

We are out of the depression? Where are all the jobs? Taxes went up, and your Mr Obama wanted to raise them more instead of tightening the government spending.(Which after all the booing about that, we survived and a lot of programs that were going to be cancelled are either back and running or never got the axe.) Job rate went up a fraction of a percentage? That is because people are exhausting their benefits...

Saving the automobile industry..that all had to do with electoral votes. If the tri state area here had that many votes he would of saved the coal industry... he hasn't even looked our way.

You're giving credit where it is not due.

It seems as through whites are the only ones called raciest. If we had a college fund that said whites only or a white college, Al Shapton and the rest of his black KKK would jump on this so fast. It's OK to have black history and other races months. Lets have a white's month. I am willing to bet my last $ that Obama is somehow behind all this with Paula Dean. Look at the comment that he made about that black kid being shot. That if he had a boy he would dress just like that! I would LOVE to go back to the 40's and 50's where this was a good land to live in.
Don't even want to get started on the invasion of the united states. I say if we get rid of these illegal Arabs , Mexicans and Cubans our country wouldn't be in the mess that it in. Put English back as our ONLY language spoken here. Do like the 40's when we were in war with the Japanese we didn't let them roam free we put them in a camp till the war was over. Put these Arabs and illegals in a camp till this war overseas, and on war and poverty is over.#1 Get that N***r out of office!

So you think that if "black"folk exclusively stop using the "word",that it'll go away?...98% of the white people that are speaking to me about certain individuals as referring to an african american,will always most of the time will say that n***r this or that n***r that,whatever the circumstance is, whether it is with malice or usually just casually speaking...white people will never let them forget the "word" exist and is always used as a description of choice when referring to them.
p.s.
i am also a fan of the golden age of radio.

She is also a product of a southern cultural tradition and time when having a condescending or expressing a resentful attitude towards blacks or other non whites was a perfectly acceptable and "normal" point of view that are obviously still very prevalent in the southern and western regions to this day,even more so exclusively than the rest of the country.just look at some of the totally ignorant hateful post on this thread.the tradition of hate is still alive and well in good ole dixie.

Martha stewart went to prison for stock fraud or taxes, either way she is still thriving and doing a great business. Now Paula used that word 30 years ago so she says, but her employees are sueing her for treatment. The word was asked about in a deposition which I think pertains to the lawsuit. Never the less, should Marthe Stewart still be in business and has her brands still carried by major outlets? She went to prison, Paula committed no crime but is being treated like she was. We will wait for thr lawsuit to be settled as for the crime thingy.
