Bull crap on the pic's. I have many black friends
and I can only recall pic's with one black friend.
I went to a baby shower with 26 other friends and I was the only white one in the room.
Same thing at a wedding,they did not care I was
white and I did not care they were black,they were
some of the nicest people I have ever meet.
I think Paula is kind hearted to most around here.
If anything she some times flirts just a little over the edge but hey if her hubby doesn't care why
should I?

I just finished reading Joyland by Steven King.
It was OK.

Is anyone reading anything good?

I'm waiting for Deeply Odd by Dean Koontz
to come out in paperback...

I'm reading Under the Dome~~
It's a whopper, heaviest book I've ever tried
reading, in hardback no less.

Have you read, Glass Castles by Jeanette Wall?
W@W!!!

Good morning everyone...

The last time I saw anyone raked over the coals
as Paula Deen has been done and still doing,
is when Lance Armstrong F-I-N-A-L-L-Y admitted
he had been doping himself.

It's just my opinion, but I think a lot of this
was done way to prematurely.
Right down to cancelling the publication of her
new cookbook.

Pardon me for butting in on the thread (ain't nobody home at my house) but this is the biggest display of sheer hyprocrisy I have seen in a long while. Some of the stores who have abandoned her sell tons of cds of rap songs that use the word over and over and over. And the media that so delicately refer to it as the 'N-word' is the same media that does everything but bow down and worship the rap artists.

Please, never refer to yourself as butting in here.
I welcome all us old time gals to the discussion.

Good point on the Rap~I would have never thought of it
that way.

I just don't think Paula Deen could have made it as far
as she has by being a mean person.

I don't want to read a whopper LOL. But I might...from I just read about the show...it's really good.
Glass Castles also looks like a good read.
God, those poor kids though... from what I just read online... they had a horrible childhood.

You're never ever butting in here. You are one of us!!
Whether you like it or not lol.

That's a great point, Murph.

You know, she said that about the guy after the guy robbed her at gun point. This was a guy she bent over backwards
for and helped to get him a loan.
This whole Paula Deen said the N-word thing is just ridiculous.

Thank you, Jane Dear and Ruby. You make me feel so good!
This Paula Deen thing with all the companies turning their backs on her and the media gleefully reporting each one sort of reminds me of a bunch of gangbangers seeing someone torturing a kitten and all piling in on the action.

I had started the book last year and put it aside to read something else.
Came back to it because of the series being filmed.
I wanted to know the characters from the book first.

Glass Castles~~I had to keep reminding myself it was a true
story, the memoirs of her childhood.
There are some people who have no business having children,
her parent's, case in point.

I'm not so sure this isn't going to have a backlash on
some of these big box stores.
If for no other reason, their hastiness in dumping all
things Paula Deen could be a very bad move for the Big
Guys...

I read Glass Castles. It is an absolute miracle that those children survived their upbringing and a greater miracle that they all turned out so well.

Hey sweet girl!

I agree! We'd all be dead if we had to cast the first stone, wouldn't we? I love Paula Deen, grits, hey y'all and all.

I'm seeing a lot of support for Paula Deen. Makes me wonder if some of the retailers and others are sorry now that they jumped the gun so fast in cutting ties with her.
Not to mention this is a bad time for the likes of Walmart
to be boycotted.
Right here on the cusp of back-to-school shopping...

Do you think the parents ever came to terms with how crappy
they treated their children or do you think they remained
happily clueless in their own made-up world?

I loved this book!
I think this would be a good read for anyone who
is pondering this Paula Deen situation.
