Here we go again. Somebody's feelings got hurt so another celebrity is back peddling trying to fix what they said. First thing, Dean could have lied and said she had never use the word. Second, why does what she says to her husband about a robber matter. Third, what happened to free speech. Forth, why can blacks call each other "N" but whites are not suppose to use the word. If it is a derogatory insult, then why do they allow their own people to use it. And last why do we never hear about a black calling a white by honkey, whitey, cracker, master etc. Is it because whites do not care what they are called.
Topix wont let a person type the word out but has no restrictions for profanity.
Paula Dean was raised in an era where it was normal to use that word. Like some were use to the word Jap. The blacks need to be self confident enough not to let names bother them. They need to worry about the black on black crime.

No excuses needed. I don't watch or really care for her. But if you think black people are not racist you are dreaming.

I wonder who really gives a rats anus what that old white woman says anyway? If a black person is offended by her words they are in a sad way to begin with. Just like blacks callin me white mofo and referring to white women as white biches! But guess what dawg, I don't care, that's right, put some wings on it coz I don't give a flying f**k!! My life goes on, let whoever wants to dwell in and drown in hate. People are just pathetic nowadays. Crybabies who are too lazy to get up off their butts to wipe their own ass but sure wanna sit and cry when they still smell like shit.

No one said black people weren't racist. Most people are racist to some extent but Paula Deen was over the top with her racism and I'm glad the old heifer got fired by the Food Network.

Any white person over sixty years old and raised in the south that says they have never said that word is lying!

There are a lot of white people who used to say it but don't anymore because it shows a lack of education and it's hurtful to a large group of people.

The "n" word is slang for the word "negro" which means black. However as with many words over time they tend to take on additional or different meaning....since it is an offensive word I consider it inappropriate as profanity...but I do wonder why blacks use it and listen to it being used in music (term loosely used) they listen too. Folks should be equally offended.

I understand she has used the term many years ago.

Some blacks use it. Not all of them use it and are very offended when someone of their own race uses it.

So she said the n word. I honestly don't understand this whole thing. We don't get to sue someone over honky or cracker name calling and goodness forbid we call the kkk everytime we had a race issue. Heck it seems if you breathe wrong they call the naacp. Even with all the race mixing it is still(and always) will be black white or mexican.

My whole point is Dean could have lied. People want to hear only what they want to hear not the truth. Food Network is just another bunch of candy a#*es giving in to pressure.
When are whites going to stand up and say, "so what if your ancestors were slaves, that was not this generation and we owe blacks nothing". When are people going to demand free speech.
And if it is an insult then hold everybody to the same standard about using the "N' word. You don't get to pick and chose.

The Food Network had no choice. No company is going sponsor a show that is hosted by a racist and without sponsors the network would lose money . I don't know why that is so hard for some of you people to understand.

This is not any different than a black person telling at his job that he does not like white people.does this mean all the white people can sue?I like Paula Deen.She has come from having nothing to having more. She is being sued,so the people can set on their butts and live off of someone else.MORE FREEBIES.

People who like racists are either racists or they are no better than the racists themselves.
