Do you think it was wrong for food network to cancel her show for remarks she made years ago?

If everyone who has ever said anything racist is fired, nobody will be working. Food network is wrong on this one.

She didn't get fired for using the 'N'word. Her contract was not renewed because of all the bad publicity. Any employer can do this.
For example...If you were arrested and your name and company you worked for was printed in the newspaper or they aired a picture of you wearing your company uniform while being arrested then they can and will fire you.

If its so bad to use the N word why do rappers and blacks call each other it? Doesn't make sense.

If they had eaten at her restaurant at Horse Shoe in Tunaca, she would have been out sooner.

You're a little thick headed aren't you son. It wasn't the fact she used those slurs as much as it made her boss look bad. That's why she was let go.

Now as far as BET maybe you should write a letter to the producers and boycott them. Get enough offended white folks to go along and maybe you can get them off the air.

If 10,000 white folks got together and protested BET for being racist, it still would not stop. In fact, it would increase. The whites would be labeled racist for protesting ANYTHING that a black person does. I will be called a racist and bigot (or worse) for posting this. Take "Deon Cole's Black Box" on TBS. He says racist comments against whites all of the time and that's called "Comedy". When it comes to comments made by blacks against whites, ALL gloves are off. Do we, the white race, deserve this because our ancestors enslaved the black race and then mistreated the blacks for many years after that? If people in general want racism to stop, they need to stop black racism against whites. Enough of the whitey jokes. Do ya'll believe that is ok? Really? I know that some or even most blacks think it's funny. They say that we "had it coming". I could go on and on about reverse discrimination but ya'll know it when you see it, and there is WAYYY more racism against whites than it is against blacks.

I would like a serious answer. I know that some folks will respond with stupid remarks but will someone respond with a real answer to this: Why does Hollywood and blacks along with liberal whites, feel that it is ok and even funny whenever a black person cracks a joke about whites? Do they think that we don't mind? Do they think that we can't relate to them because we have not been oppressed like the black race has? What is the deal here? I listed my screen name as "Proud to be White". Does that make me racist against blacks? They have "Black History" month to highlight and honor black achievements, but what about the many, achievements of whites? I know some will say about me, "Here is another crying whitey!" but this issue is real. Blacks say that they want true racial harmony, but do they really? If you have been in a fight with someone, and now you want to make up and be friends, you should say "I'm sorry" and then move on with your life and not do anything that would upset the one you were fighting with. We have apologized to the black race so many times that nobody knows when the first one took place. The black race needs the white race more than we need them. It was whites that freed ya'll. It was whites that brought about civil rights. Yeah ya'll protested and Martin Luther was a brave man for standing up like he did and I respect him for his bravery , courage and honor but remember it was Lyndon Johnson that signed the papers to equalize things. it was ole Abe Lincoln that freed the slaves and he paid for that with his life! It was the white vote that put Obama in office AND re-elected him! Some day the blacks will outnumber the whites, but for now, ya'll need us. Let the white jokes cease if you want true equality.

To prove a point: Type in the N word. Now type in the H word. You probably had to think for a few seconds to get what the H word is didn't you. Be honest now. Well, you can't type the N word on this website, as it is with most sites like this. But you can say Honkey all day and night. Later N words.... (I said that as a friendly goodbye. I didn't mean it as a slur so don't get your panties in a wad.)

I tried to say later like the black folks say to each other, you know what I mean, but it wouldn't even let me post that. I even tried to sub the "@" symbol for the two G's in the middle and it stopped me. Now do ya'll see what I'm getting at here. Well I'll talk to ya'll honky crackers...Whitey out!

It's not just her using the n word, she is also being sued by her workers at her savanah restaurant for racial remarks and other stuff.

Racism should no longer be. Both sides are racist not just the white. Should be a law to protect the white people.

They only fired her because they don't want the bad publicity.

Maybe she'll get a job on fox news :P

The time she said she made the remark was many many years ago. It wasn't recent & she confessed to it when she was asked. She could have lied & said she never used the N word but she was honest.

And for this Food Network doesn't renew her contract? Screw them!

Why does her being racist disqualify her from being a TV chef when putting 5 sticks of butter in a recipe does not?
