I watched Paula Deen on tv this morning.
How many other people have said or done something , they wish they had not?
I am sad that companies think we will not stand up for her, Walmart dropped her today, so did Smithfield Foods. What a sad day it is.......
Oh snap

So you stand up for racism? It is not only what she said, it has been the way she has treated others as well. Everybody knows what is right and wrong and that you don't make light of people because of who or what they represent. When you are in the spot light, it is even more important that you don't do what she has done. In fact, once in the spot light she should have been making changes a long time ago, but she hasn't and her excuses are just that, poor excuses. Her defense is to blame some imaginary person who is trying to take her hard work away because they want it. What the hell does that even mean? Maybe the truth is she bullied the wrong person. She had it in her head that it was okay to pretend to still be living in the past when that was acceptable. To plan a wedding set in the old days of the South, it is not necessary to hire all black men and dress them up as they were back then (poorly paid staff looked down on) all for the sake of "getting that old time" feeling. Yeah, when blacks were slaves. She, and others like her, deserve what they get.

An apology containing "I is what I is, I won't change" is not an apology. But I have been boycotting Wal-Mart for years, so...

So we are all prefect and said something we regret later. It is time to let it go, and forgive her

Of course, it's okay for Jamie Foxx and other blacks to say racist things about white people. The double standards make me sick!

How many 'F' words are in the movies at Walmart? Where I come from they call each other the 'N' word.
Paula is a good Southern Woman. Dallas, Texas isn't dropping her.
Cooking is a science and she knows how to cook. Remember, Martha Stewart was given her come back change from Donald Trump. Hopefully another person would help this woman.
If Paula called her cook the 'N' word, how come it wasn't all in the news and Jessie Jackson jawing in?
I feel like dropping Walmart.

There are so many better reasons to drop Wal-Mart, but ok......

Walmart won't lose anything by dropping Paula Deen. Remember how much money they make.
It is a double standard,. The main stream media loves to report this kind of crap. Walmart knows we don't have choices in some area, but to go their stores. I think we need to rally around Paula Deen, and tell her what she has meant to us over the years!! Tell these stores like Walmart in calm manner, that!!!!

Rally around your southern fried racism all you want, but not a one of you has the resolve to actually boycott Walmart. Otherwise, you would have done so years ago.

Ignorance begets ignorance. When bad manners and treatment of others is excused by the bad manners and treatment of other... that is just BS. That is what little children say and how they think. Hopefully some day, after all the dust has settled, Paula can show how she has changed and again return to a spotlight. Change is all people expect and should expect. But right now she does not sound too repentant.

I agree with you. Some people are too quick to pull the racism card.

What matters is what society thinks, if society is important to you. As a celebrity "anything", your pocket book is tied directly to what society thinks about you. We have seen this over and over and over. If a celebrity is too stupid to recognize this oh well. It doesn't have to be about racism, as it could be the same about anything, depending on what you do. The best thing for anyone in the spotlight to do is treat people with the utmost respect, hire managers to help keep your persona in check and put out the fires a fast as possible. Any celebrity that can't do this does not deserve to be a celebrity. Did anyone see the big Clorox fumble? They gave 6 fails of new fathers that if they had used anyone else for it like race or females, they would have been even more slammed.

We are not buying from the companies that are out to give Paula a heart attack or stroke. It would make us the 'N' word to even enter their doors.

As you already see, "boycott Walmart " does not hurt them. They are a very wealthy family.
This is about companies that refuse to take a stand, this whole thing happened 30 years ago! The media should let it go, so should the rest of you. I am so tired of the double standard . When it is so convenient to pull the racism card.

It's not what she said thirty years ago. It's not what she said this week. It's what was NOT said that is the problem. She gave no real apology, no plan for future action, no remorse. She, and the lot of you, have no idea what is racism and what isn't.

I don't think you really know what racism is, people throw that word around. She does not have to apologizes, she did nothing wrong. I live every day with what some people call legal discrimination. I choose not to linger on it. Get over it. If she was black it would be so very different story

Just saying she does not need to apologize weakens any defense you may have for her. She did nothing wrong??? How do you know? Were you there? Do you know her?? Sounds like a BS opinion from someone who does nothing but BS their way through life. You DO NOT know! Then you cheapen it with something called "legal discrimination". What BS is that? You choose not to linger on it, but you do anyway. You are so full of sh!t!! On top of that your racist attitude comes right through with your "if she was black" comment. Do me a favor, STFU.
