Just when I think I've heard or read the dumbest thing ever....here comes yet another Paula Deen controversy. I am sick to death of this country making mountains out of molehills. This politically correct junk has become devoid of all common sense. She said the N word....SO WHAT!???!?!?! How many rappers use the N word in their "music"? Why is it ok for them and not for everyone else? Plus, she apologized for it and it was a thing of the past. So I guess all these self righteous people who are now anti Deen have never used the N word. Haha..that is laughable. I don't care if she used the word yesterday or if she uses it on a daily basis. I still like her and until they put a stop to EVERYONE using it...then they need to get off her back..so much for freedom of speech.

It's very interesting to compare what she actually said in the transcript of her deposition to the claims that the various newspapers are making about that transcript.

I strongly mention reading the deposition to find out what she actually said. It's not what you've heard.

Also, how many people here are aware that the person who was suing her for racial discrimination is claiming she was discriminated against because she was half ITALIAN? It is a white woman suing Deen. They leave that detail out of every article, as they leave out the fact that Deen's restaurants have a highly racially integrated staff.

Really? Black people use this word all the time. Talking to one another. I am not racist in the least but I am very tired of having to edit everything that I say because I am a Caucasian person.I don't owe anyone special treatment because of slavery. I wasn't alive in that time period and neither northerners you nor was AL Sharpton,Jesse Jackson or the naacp. Let it go it is the past that none of us were apart of or have any control over. Goodness this nation has been turned into a laughing stock to other nations. We slaughter unborn babies,and call it birth control. It is murder infanticide ...period. We allow same sex persons to "marry" and call an alternate life style! It is sin and an abomination in the eyes of the Lord. If you don't like like it that's between you and a holy God. He wrote it not me but I believe and stand on every word of the precious word of God. Our nation is spying on us through emails,text, etc..And we are really going to try to worry about something an elderly lady said 10 years ago. It's high time we Americans no matter what race we are stop worrying about what is politically correct or offensive to races. We need to cry out to God and turn back to what we once stood for and what our country was founded upon. If people are so offended by America and what our constitution says, and what we say then they should consider leaving this nation. If you are so offended by something that happened a hundred or more years ago and are looking to be compensated for your heritage. Please feel free to pull away from the taxpayers pockets and get yourselves a one way ticket back to your ancestors. I'm sure you'd appreciate being back where you have no hundred year old grudges against people who owe you nothing. Sure you would fit right in there. I'm sure they'd completely understand why you whine and cry while being in the land of privilege and try to waste working tax payers money to pursue an elderly ladies words 10 years after she spoke them. Yeah your ancestors would completely love you ,I am sure. Get off the couch , go get a job, and pull up your big people panties and be thankful that you are here and try to worry about things that matter. Just my humble opinion.

I bet that you never hear caucasian people calling one another white bread, honky, cornbread,etc..nor will you see an oriental person refer to one another as slick or slant eye. Or a Spanish speaking person any degrading name. If it is a bad word then it is bad no matter the color of the skin of the person speaking it. Get over it, they sell tickets out of this county every day. No one is holding you here. Please feel free to travel around. This may come as quite the shock to you but not every Caucasian person wears a hood as you say. No more than being black makes you a black panther. Both are groups not the entire population. Just a small number of the nation's population who are affiliated with a group that's all. Being white doesn't't make me a racist person anymore than being wet makes me a fish.

I agree. I was saying the same thing to my husband yesterday. She should have put Matt on the spot yesterday during the interview, and ask him if he's ever said it.

I hear that word a lot, from blacks! It's ok from them to day it all the time, but if any white person does, they're racist and we have this big blowup! They have the BET channel on tv. What do you think would be said if there was a WET channel?!

Show me any white adult from the South who testifies they have not uttered the word and I'll show you a liar. That's a fact.
